Follow Friday #6 !


Follow Friday is a weekly event. It showcases all types of book blogs, and is a great way to meet other people and make friends! (: And this week, we are lucky enough to be the featured blog!



Question/Activity: Dreamcast your current read!

Right now, I'm reading Velveteen by Daniel Marks. I have no doubt at all for who I'd want to play Velvet:
ISABELLE FUHRMAN!
Velvet is a bit of an angry soul, and I think Isabelle would be perfect for that role. She was great as Clove in the Hunger Games!
Velvet's best friend is Luisa; who is described as a small girl.
KATHRYN DRYSDALE!

 She was in St. Trinians, and even though she's British, I really imagine her as Luisa. Luisa is snarky and a lot older mentally than her actual age.
Then Nick, who is 'insanely hot' with an athletic build:
CHORD OVERSTREET!
I don't really know my reasoning for choosing him, but I think Isabelle and him would have a good flirt-spite thing going.
Even though there are some more characters I could do, I'll end with who I'd cast for Manny. She's the station agent/'boss' to all of them, and is a cheerful blonde:
NICOLE KIDMAN!

Okay, so those are my picks! (: Picking a dreamcast is actually really hard. Hope you enjoy my picks and definitely pick up a copy of Velveteen when it comes out later this year! Leave a comment so I can check out your blog too! (:

  27. Casting can be difficlut as I also imagine faces in books which are slightly blurry and not so exact.
