TGIF is hosted by Ginger @ GReads! I found it through the fabulous blog run by the lovely Melissa & really liked the questions being asked so I thought I'd join in!
Cast Your Own Story: If you could use existing characters from some of your favorite books to create a new story, who would be in it?
I love this idea! Sort of like My Dream Reality Show Cast -- Fictional Character Style. Anyhow, the story I would love to cast would have to be the story I started to write myself. It's about a group of friends (& frenemies) who end up all at this huge house for a weekend-long party. The house has a lot of secrets including the strange, locked door in the basement which, according to the markings on it leads into a sub-basement. Not to mention there are secret passageways, a huge hedge maze one must solve in order to get to the pool where the best part of the party is happening. Which means we need some people. Some inquisitive & curious. Some arrogant & unyielding. Some good & heroic. Some fearful & weak. Let's see who we've got.
The Protagonist: Evie from Paranormalcy by Kiersten White - She's snarky & definitely interested in getting to the bottom of things. She comes equipped with Tazy (her little pink taser) & has a vulnerable side that makes her sympathetic.
The Best Friend: Auden from Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen - Auden would be the one helping everyone keep a level head & working to keep Evei's feet on the ground. She has sort of a dry wit when she allows herself & is an insomniac which could make for some interesting encounters.
The Heartthrob: Four/Tobias from Divergent by Veronica Roth - He's the super nice guy who isn't lame. He's got loads of heroic qualities plus he's practically fearless. Not to mention he's just so darn swoon-worthy.
The Jerk: Aris from The Scorch Trials by James Dashner - This guy just rubs you wrong with his smug expression & know-it-all-but-you-don't attitude. He comes across as very arrogant & somewhat irredeemable. It could be fun to see what he's like when dealing with terror.
The Snob: Plum from Kiss Me Kill Me by Lauren Henderson - This girl gets under your skin right from the get-go with her perfect appearance, bedroom eyes, & an acid tongue. Plus she's British which means she'll be very refined while being a snot to your face. Yet there's another, softer girl under the surface that only desperation or fear can bring out.
The Funny Dude: Grover from Vamplayers by Rusty Fischer - Hands down, beyond a doubt, the best funny dude ever. He's the guy making pop culture references in the face of danger but he's not (too) afraid to scale a wall to save his own behind.
