Boys and Good Books

We figure boys and books go ridiculously well together so we have paired up our current favorite boys with our current favorite delicious books!  

1. Six of Crows - Luke Evans

Dark, stylish and debonair, we think Luke Evans is the perfect match for Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. Very much like our antagonist-we-love-to-love Kaz Brekker, Luke is devilishly handsome and we’re sure he’s got more than a few tricks up his sleeve. With that dark and brooding stare, we’ll let him pick our pockets(and then some) any day.

2. 13 Days of Midnight - Tom Hiddleston

Tom is turning his mischievous charms to darker tides in the upcoming film, Crimson Peak. Brimming with wit and silent demons, Tom can easily pull off the curious role of Luke Manchett from the dark 13 Days of Midnight by Leo Hunt and probably teach those ghosts a lesson too.

3. Wolf by Wolf - Kit Harrington

Wolf calls to wolf and Kit Harrington certainly has the mane for it! If rumour is to be true, Kit will have no problem ‘blending in’ among the rabble of Hitler’s regime that has taken hold in the eerie alternate world spectacle Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin. With the addition of our protagonist’s wolf tattoos, the similarities are just too uncanny.

4. The Novice - Matthew Lewis

Matthew definitely didn’t exactly have affinity for spells during his time in Hogwarts but he sure had the courage. This makes him our perfect match for The Novice by Taran Matharu. He’ll slot right in at the Vocans Academy and we think he’ll do much better with demons and mana without the need for all that wand nonsense.

5. The Hit - Sam Claiflin

Sam Claiflin is very much a ‘boy next door’ type so he’s the perfect fit to represent our book The Hit by Allen Zadoff. Boy Nobody drifts from school to school, eliminating targets and moving on. With Sam’s incredible sexy and innocent character he’d make for a perfect undercover agent and no doubt he could put the incredible skills he’s learned from The Hunger Games to good use too!

6. The Memory Hit - Bradley Cooper

A whole different kind of hit here now. Bradley Cooper is the kind of man who looks like he makes bad choices frequently but always has a good time doing it. And with his past experience with perceptive drugs in films like Limitless, he’s the perfect candidate for The Memory Hit by Carla Spradbery. We think he’d have a few things to say about Nostalgex and its effects but those striking eyes and near perfect locks give us a whole different kind of high.

7. The Lost and the Found - Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict can definitely work a mystery so there’s no other book perfect for our dashing detective than the fantastic The Lost and the Found by Cat Clarke. Thirteen years after Laurel Logan’s disappearance, a young woman appears in Logan’s old garden holding the teddy bear that Laurel was last seen with. Is this really Laurel who disappeared all those years ago? Or is there something more sinister behind it? With Benedict on the case, this book’s dark secrets will soon be unravelled.

8. Witch Hunter - Chris Pratt

A wayward traveler and an expert raptor tamer, Chris Pratt’s skills know no bounds. So he’ll have no problem taking on the magical prowess of witches, wizards and sorcerers in the medieval witch fantasy Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker.  Elizabeth hunts down those who dabble in witchcraft and brings them to justice; until she is accused of being a witch herself and thrown into prison. Striking a deal with the most powerful wizard in Anglia, she must find the dark wizard who laid a deadly curse on him in order to win her freedom. Even with Chris’s cheeky smile we reckon evil might suit him. Endless action, wit and dark wizardry await you in this epic new series.

9. The DUFF - Channing Tatum

Channing Tatum is incredibly well known as a ladies man, especially after his huge hit Magic Mike. It seems only right that Mr. Channing would be the equivalent of our Wesley from Kody Keplinger’s The DUFF. Bianca is witty, cynical and definitely not attracted to high school jock Wesley…or is she? We’ve got to admit, he is rather dashing and impossibly hard to resist but how could  we get over being called a DUFF? We suspect staring into those gorgeous green eyes might help.

10. Crow Moon - Ian Somerhalder

Danny of Crow Moon by Anna McKerrow wears his heart on his sleeve and jumps from one girl to the next whilst living in the idyllic lands of Green World. Most of his thoughts are about sex, drinking and generally not caring. Just like our smouldering Somerhalder here. After Red World increases its attacks on Green World, Danny finds himself at the center of war discovering forces he had no idea existed. With Ian’s more than capable knowledge of the supernatural world, we’re sure both he and Danny will survive to live another day.

YA Lit Meme: 2015 Debut Novels

The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

They know - the moment I came through the door they knew - but it’s different altogether to see it work: the stigma branded into my skin above my navel, a scrawl of black. XIII. The stigma that protects me and shows me for what I am. An enforcer of the Thirteenth Tablet. A witch hunter.

They back away, as if I’m the one to be afraid of.

I am the one to be afraid of.
