And we approach the end of the Guest Blogger Days with Aussie book blogger Lisa from Badass Bookie. While most of us will only pack a book (or two) when going on vacation, Lisa is the kind of gal who will take the whole cast with her on a desert island. I hope there's still room for sunscreen in her luggage ...
Hello Lovelies! It’s Lisa and I usually blog over at Badass Bookie BUT my super, duper awesome friend Birgit asked whether I would like to do a guest post on The Book Garden and who am I to turn down such an offer?
So I pondered hard about what I’m going to post about. Top Tens? Old. Review? Bo-ring. Heart Throbs? Love the idea but … I’m taking it a step further and I bring you … *dramatic pause* What I Stashed in My Suitcase …
The book and the characters I would love to spend the rest of my life with on a desert island …
The Book? Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini. One of my favourite debuts of the year, it was hard narrowing it down to one book but I can feel it, THIS is the right choice! First of all, Greek Mythology is totally badass! I love the whole concept of turning something so old into literature we all enjoy! Add to the mix – hot boys, drama, action, tension and a killer romance, what’s not to love? Where wouldn’t I want to spend the rest of my reading life with … Starcrossed (even the name is so *swoon* worthy :P)
(While we’re at it … US vs. UK Battle of the Cover? Which one do you prefer? I love the US cover but the UK cover is more relevant.)
The Characters? I would steal away Helen, Lucas, Jason, Claire, Ariadne and … hot, smexy, hot, badass, sexy, hot Hector. And to visually represent why I would stash Starcrossed in my suitcase … I’ve picked a dream cast!
Helen – Isabel Lucas (She’s Aussie!)
You Might Know Her from … Transformers
Lucas – Zach Roerig
You Might Know Him from … Vampire Diaries
Adriane – Jessica Lowndes
You Might Know Her from …90210
Jason – Logan Lerman
You Might Know Him from … Percy Jackson
Claire – Christian Serratos
You Might Know Her from … Twilight
Hector – Max Iron
You Might Know Him from … Red Riding Hood
Soooo what do you think? Are they worth spending the rest of my life with? Away from civilisation, on a desert island just me and …them? Mmmmm I think they are!
