Thirsty Thursday (11): Dream Book Cast


Thirsty Thursday is a weekly feature, hosted by Nikki & Keira @ Lazy Book Lovers, where we discuss all things swoon-worthy: from quotes, book covers, book boyfriends, and even that worth-the-wait book kiss.

Technically, it’s a Sunday but this week’s topic was really hard for me. I have zero imagination when it comes to casting my favorite book characters. But I still want to do this theme so this is me trying my best. I just decided to go with the MC pairs because casting the whole book would be like me going into space, which is never going to happen. LOL. So here we go…


sebastian stan as nick anna_torv_olivia_fringe_13

Nick Scott and Jayne Morgan

Sebastian Stan as Nick Scott and Anna Torv as Jayne Morgan from PLAIN JAYNE by Laura Drewry: Besides the incredible similarity these two have with the cover actors of the book, I’d say they would have the subtle chemistry needed in a friends-to-lovers story.


gabriel macht as heath champion kelly reilly as annabelle granger 2

Heath Champion and Annabelle Granger

Gabriel Macht as Heath Champion and Kelly Reilly as Annabelle Granger from MATCH ME IF YOU CAN by Susan Elizabeth Phillips: This novel is one of my favorite books of all time so I would love it if Gabriel Macht, whom I adore, plays one of my book heroes! 🙂


michael fassbender as anthony bridgerton Emily Blunt as Kate Sheffield

Anthony Bridgerton and Kate Sheffield

Michael Fassbender as Anthony Bridgerton and Emily Blunt as Kate Sheffield from THE VISCOUNT WHO LOVED ME by Julia  Quinn: Gosh, if these two would work together for this Julia Quinn book to movie adaptation, I will be one of the happiest in the world. LOL. Michael Fassbender is a no-brainer. And I love Emily Blunt to bits. And they’re both great actors. I can already imagine all those sexual tension veiled as antagonism in the beginning!


alex pettyfer as jace wayland shailene woodley as Clary

Jace Wayland and Clary Fray

Alex Pettyfer as Jace Wayland and Shailene Woodley as Clary Fray from The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare: Basically, Alex Pettyfer should have played Jace in the movie adaptation of City of Bones. Period. As to why he didn’t, I’ll continue to ask the universe, why! why? WHY?! 🙂 And I just love Shailene. She should do more movies.



That’s it for me for this week’s edition. Which actors would you love to play your favorite book characters?

Don’t forget to check out Nikki’s and Keira’s picks this week here. My good friend Lorn @ Pakwanstripes is also doing this feature.
