The point of this event is to cast hot guys from any book of your choosing. Feel free to take part!
So, first up, Perry from Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. Brigid cast this book, too, but I loved Never Sky so hard, and Perry is one of my new lit crushes. I just HAD to feature him!
I pictured Perry as a hottie blond with crazy, unkempt hair. And there was no one better to fit that bill than this picture of Charlie Hunnam (which I also used for Cas from ALTERED, but whatever, he's sexy):
If you haven't read Under the Never Sky yet, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
Next up, Luc from Erica O'Rourke's Torn and Tangled.
Luc is a hot, sexy Cajun with magic. And he is totally going to win Mo over in the forthcoming Bound.
Milo Ventimiglia fits my vision of Luc so well. Though, I think he'd be a bit younger than Milo here, and maybe a tad bit bigger (taller, more muscle!).
As for that other boy in Torn and Tangled, Cole or Cornelius or something like that, I picture him like this:
And lastly, I'm casting the Darkling from Leigh Bardugo's forthcoming Shadow & Bone, which also means many of you probably haven't read the book, but believe me when I say you totally want to. So when it does release, run to the nearest book retailer and pick up your copy. Then clear your schedule, and don't plan on talking to your family and friends for at least twenty-four hours. Maybe even forty-eight, because you will have a recovery time, as well.
I pictured the Darkling as sexy, but slick, and super, super dark. Obviously.
This picture of Sean O'Pry (who, yes, I've also used for other hot guy posts, but this picture is much different, and also, why not use him again and again?) looks very similar to my image of the Darkling, right down to the black trench. The hair is maybe a bit too wild, but I figure the Darkling just got through fighting bad guys in the woods with his badass powers, so he's rumpled.
