I’ve always had a difficult relationship with reading. Sometimes, I love it. Sometimes, I just don’t want to bother with it. I’m also a very slow reader. Embarrassingly slow. For a short time, I was reading books (Star Wars books, in particular) to review them. I couldn’t keep up, and I got tired of the process really quickly, so I just stopped reading altogether.
A year or two pass by, and I’ve finally decided to just focus my attention on other books I’ve been wanting to read. One of those books is A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray.
I fell in love with her writing style after reading Lost Stars, so I purchased this book with no hesitation. And boy oh boy, I’m so glad I started with the Firebird series because it’s incredibly good.
You’re introduced to 3 main characters: Marguerite, Theo, and Paul. I remember Claudia did a fan cast for Lost Stars, so I browse through her Pinterest to see who she fan cast for this particular novel. She picked interesting actors, but I went ahead and decided to find actors who fit what I had imagined. I tried to stay close to the descriptions laid out in the book as possible. Either way, I’m sticking with these faces.
Left: Lyndsy Fonseca as Marguerite
Middle: Chris Wood as Theo
Right: Devon Sawa as Paul
Yeah, can you tell I’m a hardcore Nikita fan? Alex and Owen. *heart eyes*
I’m super happy with this fan cast, and now that I’ve laid it out, I’m going to resume my reading!
