Guest Blog: Ali of Ginger Reads

We asked our blog buddy, Ali, of
Ginger-Read Reviews
 to cast her favorite Young and New Adult characters. Like us, she can't get enough of these angsty, crazy kids so we asked her to cast them.
Okay, so it may be obvious by my list that I have a love of strong female characters and somewhat damaged male characters. 

There is something about a weak female that turns me off, fairly instantly. If she doesn't show that she has a backbone (those are pretty useful items) pretty early on, there is a great chance I won't ever really connect with her. Plus, bad ass chicks are just cool.

When it comes to my book boyfriends, I like them a little fragile but still tough. Makes sense, right? You know, the type that hides a vulnerability behind a tough exterior. Love that. 

Anyway, when picking my Young Adult/ New Adult Rat Pack...those where the characteristics that were in the forefront of my mind. The Rat Pack was full of beautiful, talented and just plain cool people that all had something a little special about them. So, here is my list of the special book people that hold a little piece of my heart.

Andrew Parish from 

Landon Harlow 
Keeping Secrets in Seattle by Brooke Moss
Landon is described as a younger, grittier David Beckham.

Katniss Everdeen 
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I would stick with Jennifer, she rocks the role!

Divergent by Veronica Roth
I actually like the casting for Theo James on this one.

Karou & Zuzanna 
Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor
Pheobe Tonkin, of course she'd have to dye her hair peacock blue

Matt Watkins 
Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park
He may be an odd choice...

Remy King 
Hollowland by Amanda Hocking

Alexa & Kayden 
Blood Warrior by H.D. Gordon
I swear there are so many authors that model their boys after him!

Sovereign Hope by Frankie Rose

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your Rat Pack.

  1. Goodness, I'm slacking. I've only read HG so far Although a lot of the others are on my list to read. You definitely lit a fire under my butt though with some of those yummy picks.
    Kristin @ Book Sniffers Anonymous
