So many books I love have been turned into movies: Harry Potter, Hunger Games, The Chronicles of Narnia, Percy Jackson . . . The list could go on and on! And while it’s super-exciting to see how different directors and actors interpret the stories and characters I’ve loved on the page, I can’t help but wonder how things would turn out if someone else played Peeta, or Hermione, or even Grover. That’s why our next Winter Reading Games event is . . . drumroll,  please . . . Dream Cast! Which actors would you choose to play the characters in a movie adaptation of YOUR favorite book?

Right now I’m reading The Lost Hero from the Heroes of Olympus series. My dream cast?

PS. Are you coming to the Readathon on Saturday? It’s going to be EPIC!

    I personally do NOT think Disney stars should be in a movie like The Lost Hero. It would ruin my all-time FAVORITE series for me. Not to sound mean or like a hater or anything, but I just don’t think Disney actors have the skills to pull off such amazing characters. I would pick:
    Alexander Ludwig as Jason Grace
    Seychelle Gabriel as Piper Mclean
    Jake T. Austin as Leo Valdez
