Follow Friday #17!

"Follow Friday" hosted by "Parajunkee" and "Alison Can Read."

Today's question: It is up to you to do a Kickstarter campaign for your favorite book!
Who are you casting for the main characters?

Answer: First of all, I could never pick a "favorite" book and recently a lot of my core favorites are being made into movies or have already been, like The Mortal Instruments, The Maze Runner, Divergent, Vampire Academy, The Fault In Our Stars, etc. Then we have movies that have been made in the past that have first come from books I love, like Twilight, The Host, The Perks of Being A Wallflower, etc. I'm trying to think of the next book I would want to see made into a movie and I keep coming back to the House of Night series. I know there were talks about a movie happening but I haven't heard ANYTHING about that for awhile now and I'm not sure where that stands. However, I think this would be my dream cast... 
"Marked" - a House of Night novel by PC Cast and Kristin Cast.
There's so many characters but I'm going to try to stick to the main ones!

Zoey Redbird - Nina Dobrev. 

Stevie Rae Johnson - Jennette McCurdy.

Erin Bates - Sarah Paxton.

Shaunee Cole - Kat Graham. 

Damien Maslin - Chris Colfer.

Aphrodite LaFont - Ashley Benson. 

Heath Luck - Lucas Till. 

James Stark - Tyler Blackburn. 

Neferet - Melinda Clarke. 

Someone should actually do this...
I mean, can WE get on this ASAP?
I kinda think it's perfection...


  1. I can't completely sell myself on Lucas Till as Heath (he just seems a little too clean cut - I always pictured him as a little more roughneck preppy, if that makes sense!) or Melinda Clarke as Neferet (she just doesn't strike me as quite dark and mysterious enough) but I am 100% in love with all of your other choices - so perfect!

    Thanks for stopping by earlier, following by GFC now!


    1. It was hard picking someone for Heath and Neferet. When I was first thinking about Heath Kellan Lutz came to mind but I didn't think he looked young enough. I'm not sure, he is a hard pick considering he's supposed to be gorgeous, somewhat preppy AND rugged. Who would you choose? I had a hard time picking someone that looked like Neferet but I chose Melinda Clarke because of her acting chops. She's extremely good at being sweet but much, much better at being evil.

  2. Ohh great cast! I would definitely watch this ;) Thanks for stopping by and following earlier! Following back on GFC

  5. Thanks for stopping by my FF, Carey! Nice picks. I found it extremely hard to pick anyone resembling what lives inside my head from the fictional world I spend loads of time in.

  8. OOoh nice! You have a great cast lined up! I can never really pick actors to play my fave characters. I just don't see such-and-such playing on my fave character roles. No one really meets up!

    I have a whole post going on and on about my dilemma! But I do praise a few upcoming books to film and the actor choices!

    Here's my Follow Friday

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  17. Uh...I haven't read the book and, as I say in my post, have only limited familiarity with the actors. That said, both are quite intriguing, especially after reading the comments! New follower on GFC. My FF

  18. Ok so I stopped reading HoN years ago when I thought the series went off the rails but I really did enjoy book 1. And this cast is absolutely perfect. I love Tyler Blackburn as Stark! And I think Nina can just play about anybody. Also, great choice for the twins :D

    Thanks for stopping by my post, followed via GFC.

  19. Great picks! I could totally see these as Zoe and the gang :) Thanks for stopping by our ff. Following you back :)

  24. I've heard about the House of Night series. But I was kind of intimidated by it.

    Your casting really looks cool though!

  25. As a big fan of the HON series, I would love to see a movie adaptation too, and your casting is PERFECT. I love it, and I would definitely watch the film with your characters/actor picks.

  26. the only person I totaly agree with you is Melinda Clarke aka Neferet! She is perfect! She has her look everything! I can really imagine her as neferet! As actress she can really believably play "dark aka bad" character just like in Nikita! She is amazing!


Please be respectful. Comments are such a thoughtful gesture that I appreciate beyond measure! Thank you.
