Since I think it might be a bit early to post my review for Burning Glass by Kathryn Purdie, why not share my love for her book through a Fan Casting? BECAUSE WHY NOT :D? So here I am, making my fan casting. What I can say about Burning Glass right now is, IT IS FANTASTIC! Pre-order your copy ASAP! IT RULES!
Before I start, in all fairness, I am not a huge actor person. Seriously, I don’t even know the majority of their names soooo this is mostly based on looks and deviousness factors and who I think would take the roll well. 😛 I tried to choose two actors for each role but you know, Emma Watson XD!
The Song that fits the mood of the book overall:
Jack Falahee or Avan Jogia
I had a serious love, hate, love, hate, hate, love, hate relationship with Valko. It’s all very confusing people. I love him, I hate him… honestly, I really don’t like him anymore 😄 that feeling has passed and HELLO ANTON! So I haven’t seen any movies Jack Fallalee, I just saw that photo of his on Pinterest and loved it! I mean, doesn’t he look so devious and cunning AND CHARMING? I think so *cough* this summarizes Valko so well *cough*! Other than Jack Falahee, Avan Jogia would be perfect as Valko and I just loved him in Victorious and <3!
Logan Lerman or Dylan o Brien
I know, I know. SO MANY people hated the Percy Jackson move, and I’ll admit, I have a strong dislike for the second one they made, Sea of Monsters. HOWEVER, I DID adore The Lightning Theif and Logan Lerman is awesome. I just feel like Dylan o Brien or Logan Lerman would play sweet, distant Anton so well. I MEAN COME ON PEOPLE, THEY ROCK RIGHT XD?!
I seriously can’t see anyone else as Sonya! Emma Watson would rock this role so hard :)! PERFECT!
So that’s about it 🙂 Hope you all enjoyed my Fan Casting and Theme Song gifting post ^_^! Just in case you are wondering, here is some info about Burning Glass!
Sonya was born with the rare gift to feel what those around her feel—both physically and emotionally—a gift she’s kept hidden from the empire for seventeen long years. After a reckless mistake wipes out all the other girls with similar abilities, Sonya is hauled off to the palace and forced to serve the emperor as his sovereign Auraseer.
Tasked with sensing the intentions of would-be assassins, Sonya is under constant pressure to protect the emperor. One mistake, one small failure, will cost her own life and the lives of the few people left in the world who still trust her.
But Sonya’s power is untamed and reckless, her feelings easily usurped, and she sometimes can’t decipher when other people’s impulses end and her own begin. In a palace full of warring emotions and looming darkness, Sonya fears that the biggest danger to the empire may be herself.
As she struggles to wrangle her abilities, Sonya seeks refuge in her tenuous alliances with the volatile Emperor Valko and his idealistic younger brother, Anton, the crown prince. But when threats of revolution pit the two brothers against each other, Sonya must choose which brother to trust—and which to betray.
