Why I Love Wednesdays... Actor/Actress for Current Read

Reflections of a Bookaholic

I am returning with my feature... Why I love which takes place on Wednesdays. Today's proclamation of love concerns our Favorite Actor/Actress for a Character in Our Current Read. (Wow that was a mouthful!)

Why I Love...Nina Dobrev

I'm currently reading Foreshadow by Brea Essex, a YA paranormal that has high school drama and seemingly a love triangle (but not really).  Nina Dobrev is the girl who plays in The Vampire Diaries and I just love that show.  I thought of her because she always looks like an actual High School student and wears simple ponytails and all that good stuff.  Plus The Vampire Diaries obviously has paranormal elements.  I know I should have better reasons than this but a new season of The Vampire Diaries is around the corner and it's on my mind.  What can I say?  I wish I could post a picture, but all the pictures that are free for the taking featuring her looking super sexy and not the way that she is most of the time in the show or the way that I would imagine her in this book.  Here's a link to one I like.

Which actor/actress would you love to see as a character in your current read? Feel free to create your own post and link up.  Don't want to create an entire post?  Tell me your favorites in the comments.  Thanks for stopping by for another week of Why I Love Wednesdays!!

  1. I keep hearing great things about that show. I need to start watching it and catch up on the seasons. And I believe that's the same girl that played in Degrassi...I used to love that show!

  2. I like Nina Dobrev. Yep, I could see her in any YA Urban Fantasy with a romance triangle! LOL, I guess she nailed that on Vampire Diaries! :-)

  3. I need to playalong next time! I'm reading Under the Never Sky right now and for some reason my mind wants Aria to be played by Lucy Hale...but that's only because Lucy Hale plays Aria in Pretty Little Liars, not a good reason. But I was looking at Dream Casts and someone mentioned Emma Roberts, I think she would be a good pick.

    1. Oh good choices! You really should jump in and play along every once in a while.

  4. I'm currently rereading Carrie, and I can't imagine anyone playing her other than Sissy Spacek. I guess that's the drawback to reading something that already has a movie adaptation.

  5. I've never seen her in Vampire Diaries but I've in a couple of movies and she's all right. I think she can do the Glam thing and the girl next door thing, which is good for her. D

  6. I am probably the only person in the US who hasn't watched the Vampire Dairies. I'm reading Kindred and I have been thinking about who should play Dana in the movie version. I am thinking maybe Sanaa Lathan.

    1. She could but Sanaa might be a little too light. I think you'd need someone dark-skinned. You think?

  7. Nina IS gorgeous. Ian too! Imagine the children they'd have together, geez. I wanted to do this one but couldn't think of anything.


I absolutely LOVE all comments! So please feel free to chime in with your thoughts, questions, opinions, or whatever else you have to say.
