Bookish Fancasting #1: To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han


IMG_9248.JPG

I’ve wanted to do a fan-casting for my favorite book, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han. Especially since the series is coming to a close in May. This is just my personal opinion on who could be casted if TATBILB became a movie or tv-show.


Lara Jean

Arden Cho – She is known for her role on Teen Wolf. I think she would make a great Lara Jean! As for ethnicity, she is Korean American.


Peter Kavinsky

Justin Kelly – He is a Canadian actor known for playing Jake on Degrassi. I picture him as Peter, he’s just a perfect representation in my eyes.


Josh SandersonImage result for billy unger  2016

William Brent from Lab Rats on Disney Channel.


Kitty

Aubrey Anderson-Emmon from Modern Family.


Margot

Cynthy Wu – She is known for her role in Before I Fall as Ally. I couldn’t find out her ethnicity, so I do not know if she is Korean American. But, I would like a Korean American actor to play her, as well.


Chris (LJ’s Best friend)

Mae Whitman – Parenthood, Perks of Being a Wallflower.


Genevieve

Halston Sage – Paper Towns, Before I Fall.


John Ambrose McClaren

Logan Miller – ever since seeing him in Before I Fall, I’m obsessed. He’s a great actor! I could see him as John, especially from this picture reminds me of John at Model UN.


What do you think about my fan-casting? Do you agree or disagree?

April 4th – This book comes out today as I’m posting it. I was sent this from Quirk Books to review. I have read about 40 pages of it, but March was a crazy reading month as I hosted a readathon and I abandoned this book. However, I plan to read it and review it this month.

I was sent this gorgeous book from Penguin Random House Canada and I’m excited to dive in! I don’t know too much about it but it is a Young Adult Historical Fiction novel. Historical Fiction is a genre I haven’t read much of and so I’m excited to see what I think of this!


30653853

April 11 –  EEK!! I’m so excited for this book. I read Simon for review before it came out and ever since it has become of my favorite books. Thanks to my friend Anna @ Unquenchable Reads, she sent me her ARC of this book so I could read it early. We’ve been borrowing books, it’s fun! Thank you, thank you to her. Go check her out b/c she’s fab. Anyway, I’m just so excited for a new Becky book.


Of course I’m doing a re-read of TATBILB & PS I Still Love You this month because OMG!! THE LAST BOOK COMES OUT MAY 2ND IDK IF I’M READY??!?! But, I just realized this so…


These are the books I want to read this month. What book is on your TBR for April?

I Lived by OneRepublic

Hope when you take that jump, you don’t fear the fall
Hope when the water rises, you built a wall
Hope when the crowd screams out, they’re screaming your name
Hope if everybody runs, you choose to stay

Hope that you fall in love, and it hurts so bad
The only way you can know is give it all you have
And I hope that you don’t suffer but take the pain
Hope when the moment comes, you’ll say…

I, I did it all
I, I did it all
I owned every second that this world could give
I saw so many places, the things that I did
With every broken bone, I swear I lived

Science & Faith by The Script

Tried to break love to a science
In an act of pure defiance
I broke her heart
There’s a pull up on her theories
There’s a watch her growing weary
I broke her heart.
Having heavy conversations
About the furthest constellations of our souls
We’re just trying to find some meaning
In the things that we believe in
But we got some ways to go
Of all of the things that she’s ever said
She goes and says something that just knocks me dead.
You won’t find faith or hope down a telescope
You won’t find heart and soul in the stars
You can break everything down to chemicals
But you can’t explain a love like ours
Ooh, it’s the way we feel, yeah this is real
Ooh, it’s the way we feel, yeah this is real

Broken Home by 5 Seconds of Summer

They would yell, they would scream, they were fighting it out
She would hope, she would pray, she was waiting it out
Holding on to a dream
While she watches these walls fall down
Sharp words like knives, they were cutting her down
Shattered glass like the past, it’s a memory now
Holding on to a dream
While she watches these walls fall down
Hey mom, hey dad
When did this end?
Where did you lose your happiness?
I’m here alone inside of this broken home
Who’s right, who’s wrong
Who really cares?
The fault, the blame, the pain’s still there
I’m here alone inside of this broken home, this broken home

Anything Could Happen by Ellie Goulding

This book is actually inspired by this song!! The MC in the book discovers the song and he became obsessed and jams to it and it’s great.

Everything Has Changed by Taylor Swift feat. Ed Sheeran

[Taylor Swift]
All I knew this morning when I woke
Is I know something now, know something now I didn’t before.
And all I’ve seen since eighteen hours ago
Is green eyes and freckles and your smile
In the back of my mind making me feel like

[Taylor Swift]
I just wanna know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just wanna know you better, know you better, know you better now

[Both]
I just wanna know you better, know you better, know you better now
I just wanna know you, know you, know you

[Both]
‘Cause all I know is we said, “Hello.”
And your eyes look like coming home
All I know is a simple name
Everything has changed
All I know is you held the door
You’ll be mine and I’ll be yours
All I know since yesterday is everything has changed

 

#LoveAThon Mini Challenge: On the Road (Trip)!


Hosted by Alexa of Alexa Loves Books, Cee of The Novel HermitMel of The Daily Prophecy, & Kristin of Super Space ChickLove-A-Thon is an event—a lovefest—that is dedicated to spreading positivity and love. It’s time dedicated to visiting other bloggers/Instagrammers/BookTubers, leaving a comment or two, making new friends and fostering positivity among the members of our amazing community.

This challenge is hosted by the Novel Hermit.

Let’s go on a road trip! Pick 3-4 people—fictional characters, readers/bloggers, authors—you’d love to take on this road trip; a place you’re headed towards like Disneyland, Grand Canyon, Martha’s Vineyard, etc; and what you’ll be doing on this road trip, like topics of discussion, who’s driving, who’s in charge of the road trip music, etc.

 I’ll admit, yes I purposely picked four books featuring road trips…But, I want to have people that have already done road trips to help me out!

I’ve only been to Disney World, so I think it would be really fun to go to Disneyland! Especially since I want to go to California.

WHO’S GOING?

  • Hannah Cho – In Real Life by Jessica Love
  • Amy – Amy & Roger’s Epic Detour by Morgan Matson
  • Quentin – Paper Towns by John Green
  • Jane – Signs Point to Yes by Sandy Hall

——-

I would put Amy in charge of music because she wasn’t as in charge for her road trip because Roger didn’t like musicals…But, I think Jane and Hannah would appreciate them! Jane writes fan fiction about Doctor Who, which I’m sure everyone will be able to talk about! Also, they’d be talking about their past road trips!

Everyone would rotate driving because like Paper Towns road trip, it’s fair! Just hope they don’t run into any cows on the road!!

I’m sure they would all have agendas for each day, especially Jane & Amy..maybe Q too?


I had such a great time this weekend with LOVEATHON. Thank you to the lovely ladies that hosted it, I’ll be back for next year FOR SURE!

You can see me best on Youtube, Twitter, Instagram and this blog!

#LoveAThon Mini Challenge: If You Like This TV Show…You Should Read This Book!

This challenge is hosted by The Daily Prophecy. 

  • Mix and match away! This challenge is made for you to combine the books and movies/tv shows that you love in some way, in order for other people to find new recommendations for things to check out. Whether inspired by characters or themes, we can’t wait to see what you come up with!

I’m so here for this challenge! This is one of my favorite things to do matching books with tv/movies! I do have two posts on this. Book Recs Based on TV Shows ⋅ 5 Books to Read If You Like Gilmore Girls


 

images-2The Distance Between Us by Kasie West + Gilmore Girls

This book is ALL GILMORE GIRLS FEELS. I imagine that every Kasie West book is though…They all feel like Gilmore Girls. But, this one is most perfect.

  • Xander (Logan from GG) – Rich boy, doesn’t want to be in the family business
  • Caymen – is always working at her mother’s doll store, and they don’t have a lot of money. Also, Caymen’s mother doesn’t talk to her parents (LIKE LORELAI!!!)
  • Other things are too spoilery, but Caymen and her mother have a Rory/Lorelai relationship!

  • My Kind of Crazy by Robin Reul has A Cinderella Story vibes, basically this boy Hank tries a Prom Proposal for a girl he really likes and well..it ends up in flames because he uses sparklers to write out P-R-O-M- and then he runs away. So, the girl sets up a survey to try and find out who it was. I really like this book, but it does have some darkness to it.

 


I know, nothing can be as good as the Breakfast Club but Don’t Get Caught by Kurt Dinan is like a modern-day version of The Breakfast Club.

Don’t Get Caught is a prank war filled book about high school teens that wouldn’t get together otherwise. One night, five high school teens receive the same invitation to meet at a spot near their high school at night. They follow clues leading up to the water tower.

Meet Max Cobb, Ellie Wick (good girl), Kate Malone(artist), Tim Adleta (jock), and Dave Wheeler (bad influence) – known as the Water Tower Five. After being caught and humiliated by their Water Tower incident, their mission is to take down the Chaos Club; they are known for pulling the greatest pranks but never getting caught.


The Heartbreakers by Ali Novak & The Backstage Pass Series…If You Like, Big Time Rush or Boy Bands!

  • The only boy band like show I could think of was Big Time Rush, but hey I mean this was a show I watched in middle school! These two books are perfect boy band books, and they show romance but also the antics that the boys do!

Summerland & The Summer I Turned Pretty Trilogy

Okay, now I’m going to full nostalgia! Any summery romance could work here, but I think the Summer I Turned Pretty trilogy works here. It’s about family, and it’s about coming of age as Isabel “Belly” learns about boys and how the boys that she grew up with are starting to have feelings for her. Also, who misses Summerland? Fetus Zac Efron!!


This was really fun, I’m loving Love-A-Thon! It’s really fun! Definitely go to my other posts for more like this! I tried not to repeat those posts. But, I have loads more on those posts.

You’ve received a box of Sweethearts candy, and you’re asked to share the candy with a person or couple – fictional or real. Tell us who you’d give these messages to:

  • LOVE WINS: A couple you didn’t think would get together, but against all odds, they did.

Emma & Jacob (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Pecuilar Children by Ransom Riggs) I’ve only read the first book, and some of Hollow City..but still IT’S CREEPY.

  • I DO: A character you’d marry

Levi (Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell)  He’s husband-worthy and I love him, so…

  • DREAM BIG: A character whose dreams you want to come true

Josh  (Isla and the Happily Ever  After by Stephanie Perkins)

  • CRAZY 4 U: A character you’re crazy about

Hayden ( The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West)

  • TRUE LOVE: Your ultimate OTP

Peter K & Lara Jean Covey<3 (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before  by Jenny Han)

  • TE AMO: A language you’d want to be wooed in

Definitely French, specifically by Etienne St. Clair from Anna & The French Kiss.  

  • BFF: A character you want to be your best friend

Lara Jean  (To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before  by Jenny Han)

  • WINK WINK: A character you’d want to wink at you

Dax  (By Your Side by Kasie West) I’d probably collapse tbh 

  • SWEET TALK: A character who knows how to sweet talk/flirt

Maxon from the Selection by Kiera Cass, I’d swoon so hard over him!

  • BEST DAY: A moment from a book you wish happened to you or your IRL best day

The kiss in Paris from Isla and the Happily Ever After, it’s hilarious and Isla gets a bloody nose but that whole day is PERFECTION.

  • OOH LA LA: A character you want to slow dance with

Nick ( In Real Life by Jessica Love) He’s such a cutie!!

  • LOVE YOU: The character that gets your undying love

Peter K from To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before or Hayden…  I can’t choose between them but I love them both equally as much.

 

#LoveAThon Challenge: Mix & Match


loveathon

LoveAThon is hosted by: Alexa of Alexa Loves Books, Cee of The Novel Hermit, Kristin of Super Space Chick & Mel of The Daily Prophecy

This challenge is hosted by Kristin @ SuperSpaceChick! Go to her post if you want to participate. See my Introduction post here  & my Mad Libs challenge here.

  • We all love books, but there are other things we’re passionate about too! All you’ve got to do is mash-up a non-bookish hobby/passion/talent/fandom with your bookish life. Do it through photos, collages, or videos. Get as creative as you’d like to!

There’s not many things I do that aren’t book-related…But, I do have some other hobbies to share!

Photography

I was introduced to Bookstagram in 2016 and I’ve loved it ever since. I’ve been more active on it and I love just taking some time to destress by taking pictures of books to add to my Instagram @pucksandpaperbacks.

DIYs/Crafts

I’m sort of a crafty person, I like filming DIYs to go on my Booktube channel. Recently,  I did a Valentine’s Day DIY, but I’ve also done a coaster DIY with beer carriers for a gift. This also goes for baking, though I tend to use the box…I like to experiment from scratch recipes too! Follow me on Pinterest.

Planning!

I adore planning, really just for the decorating and getting stickers. But, it’s also nice to use to plan my videos and TBRs for the month!
