{ #Review } Insanity by @CameronJace

{ #Review } Insanity by @CameronJace

Insanity is the first book in the young adult series of the same name. Originally I thought that the series was going to be called Mad in Wonderland, and I have to admit that I liked that name more, but insanity is very fitting for this book. I loved this book. I think it might be my first (and only) 5 star book of the month.  I thought that Cameron Jace did an amazing job capturing the mad essence and nonsensical sense of Lewis Carrol in his writing. I am a huge fan of both Through the Looking Glass and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, so these books were a match made in mad heaven for me. I loved Cameron Jace’s Grimm Diaries, but Insanity has to be my favorite book of his to date. All of the characters came to life right in front of my eyes. Pillar the Killer was incredible.

{Dream Cast+Giveaway} Gilded Destiny by Nola Sarina

{Dream Cast+Giveaway} Gilded Destiny by Nola Sarina

I’m excited to share with you my dream cast of characters for Gilded Destiny today! If you’re reading the book, I hope you keep these actors in mind as you get to know them and hear their voices as they tell this dark, romantic story. Check out pics of each actor/actress on my Pinterest page too. 🙂 Gilded Destiny Dream Cast My ideal Nycholas would be either Charlie Hunnam or Chris Hemsworth. Because muscles and Thor and… yes, they’d be perfect LOL. The actresses who would best play Calli would be Jennifer Lawrence or Emilia Clarke. Jennifer Lawrence because she’s got the sass and smart-assness of Calli, and Emilia Clarke for her ability to remain composed even when facing fearful situations.   I’d most love to have Joe Manganiello play the part of Levi, and if you follow me on Facebook you might know that I’m a little obsessed with him hehe. He’s tall, he’s Italian, and he knows how to look scary as HELL. And muscles. See the Pinterest… Read more »
