The Aurora Cycle Dream Cast

Meet the Squad in Aurora Rising! | Underlined

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been obsessed with anything that Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff writes together since their Illuminae Files series. They recently released the sequel to their newest series (The Aurora Cycle), and I haven’t stopped thinking about the book ever since. (I mean, look at the squad! If they don’t look badass, I don’t know who does.)

I have yet to read Aurora Burning, but I thought it would be fun to make a dream cast for the characters to get into the spirit of things. I will be casting a new character, so if you haven’t read Aurora Rising (the first book), please do that first before reading this post because there are spoilers.

Just to reiterate: there are spoilers from Aurora Rising in this post. Proceed with caution.

The Perfect Book Tag

Hello, earthlings! This month has been pretty up and down, so I’m ready for something easy and structured like a book tag! I wasn’t tagged by anyone, but I saw The Orangutan Librarian do this book tag ,and it looked fun, so I wanted to try my hand at it as well.

The rules to prevent anarchy:

  1. Answer honestly, there are no wrong answers
  2. To make it just a little harder, you can’t mention the same book twice
  3. Have FUN!
  4. Tag Sofii if you decide to do it, She would love to see your answers
  5. Tag at least 5 people

The Lunar Chronicles Dream Cast

I’ve created a dream cast one time before a couple years ago (check out my Throne of Glass Dream Cast here), and I had a fun time discovering new actors and actresses as I scoured the internet to find the perfect person to fill the role of each character. I thought it was due time that I try and make another dream cast, but this time for a different beloved series: The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer.

I don’t know a lot of actors or actresses, meaning I don’t know much about their acting skills and styles (because I don’t watch a lot of TV shows or movies). Because of that, I chose these people you’re about to see solely based on their looks. I know that’s not how actors are chosen, but I’m so clueless when it comes to celebrities. Just keep that in mind.

Let’s Talk: Favorite Book/Series

I’ll be honest: I don’t have a lot of non-internet friends that like to read. That means I don’t have a lot of people to talk to face-to-face about books, which is the whole reason why I started this blog. That being said, I’ve been wondering what everyone’s favorite book/series is and why, because I’ve been thinking about expanding my horizons and reading something I wouldn’t normally pick up (or maybe something I would read but never knew existed). Also, I’m going down the rabbit hole and trying to expand my TBR list to combat my ongoing TBR cleanse.

So now I ask: What is your favorite book or series and why?

Do I Have That Book Challenge

I was just scrolling through my YouTube feed to find a video so I had an excuse to procrastinate, when I came across this book challenge. It’s been a hot minute since I’ve watched a BookTube video, so I was intrigued. After watching Keeping Tabs (the creator) take a stab at her own challenge, I wanted to give it a shot!

Click here for the original creator of this challenge!

Granted, I recently got rid of 60+ books from my shelf so this might be a bit more difficult.

Oh well.

The general rules I got from her instructions were this:

1. Time yourself trying to find each prompt on your shelf
2. Try and beat the time of the person who challenged you.
3. Don’t forget to tag your challenger and the original creator.
4. Have fun!

I decided that rather than time myself and cause my stress levels to go off the charts, I would just try and find each prompt on my shelf. Each prompt that I find a book for will count as a point. The max amount of points is 20 (since there’s 20 prompts). Plus, me just telling the time it took me to find all these books would not be that exciting.

It occurs to me now that this challenge is probably more enjoyable in video form, but alas, I am not a BookTuber. I apologize in advanced.
