Movie Cast Mondays

February 8, 2010

Hey! First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who has visited my blog, left a comment, and chosen to “follow” me. It means a lot that you would take the time, read what I have to say, and give me positive feedback. I’d also like to thank Kimberly Derting for all her help and for blogging/tweeting about my blog. Her debut novel comes out in March and is called The Body Finder. It’s an amazing debut and I can’t wait to post my review for it. Go to my links page for a link to her blog.

Okay, so the point of this post is to explain a feature that I will most likely start next week and it’ll be called “Movie Cast Monday”. Every Monday I’ll select a book and include a summary for those who haven’t read it. The point is to have people leave comments regarding who they’d like to see star in a movie adaptation of the selected book. I’ll probably leave it “open” until Friday of the same week. On Friday, I’ll either post the most suggested actors and/or my own cast.

I’m still working on it, so keep an eye out for another post with more concrete details/instructions. In the mean time, feel free to leave a comment with any thoughts or suggestions. Personally, I think this is a cool idea since I love to come up with a fictional movie cast. I’ve also received positive feedback on this idea and I’d love to receive more, whether it’s positive or negative. I know there’s a bunch of fan sites and individual posts for fans to discuss their casting choices, but I don’t think something like “Movie Cast Monday” has been done before. If it has, I apologize. 🙂

I have a few more things in store for the blog and I hope everyone is as excited as I am to see how it all pans out.


EDIT: I’ve just been informed that Natalie over at Mindful Musings does this and it’s called the same thing. Sorry, Natalie!

    I’m excited! This is a great idea-can’t wait to see what the first book in the lineup is so I can put my two cents in!
