Ben Barnes... (drool)
Henry Cavill ... (drool)

For me, Henry Cavill can do for Bones, but Matt Bomer have a wicked smiles and eyes, that sometimes remind me of Bones.
Overall? Great job like usual, UTC ladies! *cheers*

Erika said...

I love this series! I came across by mistake and been addicted to it since! Just got her newest short story today!!

In Julie's Opinion said...

I love your casting choices! I haven't started this series yet but of course, I've heard awesome things about it! I would really like to win the first book in the series so I can get started on it:)

Chrisbails said...

I think Henry Cavil would be perfect as bones. But I do not agree with Emma Stone as Cat. I was thinking Jessica Biel with red hair. And great choice for Mencheres and Kira. Also liked Denise and Spade. I did not like Tate's choice. I think it should be Channing Tatum. That would make a great choice.
I am addicted to the series. I would love to have a signed copy. I love Cat & Bones but my favorite character is Vlad and can't wait for his series of books to come out. Also can't wait for a book for Ian and then the new book 7 to come out.
Thanks for the giveaway and the chance to win. Love this blog and keep up with the great book and author recommendations. I recommend this series all the time.

I love this series and that was fun seeing who you matched up to play the roles.
Can't wait to read the new novella in the Christmas short story.

mnjcarter said...

I love Spade the most in the books, but the pic you have for Mancheres is having me rethink myself!! Yummy!!

Love your series!


wade2121 said...

Love seeing the casting choices. I can't wait for to read this series!

Deea said...

Wooo!<3 I love the cast ideas you came up with! Though I'm not sure I can see Emma Stone as Cat... Then again, I have a hard time picturing anyone as Cat!:))

Oh, Vlad...*dreamy sigh* *drool* Can't wait to read his book! Love the quote, by the way! And Lee! Perfection! *faints*

Hmm...I think I should bookmark this post for further drooling. I mean, further reading. Great job with the feature!

Myth said...

Lee as Vlad, omg my dream has come true!!! I can die now lol.

Anonymous said...

I like that pic of Emma Stone; her in that pic makes for a good Cat.

I don't know who Henry Cavil is but he's hot! I think he'd make a good Bones (from what I can see in that pic).

I like Catherine Zeta Jones as Cat's mom!

elizabeth said...

Love the pictures of the characters in the books. Haven't read this series, as I, suprisingly, have just recently heard about it. Can't wait to dive in and start reading.

What a great post! Emma and Henry are perfect. Thanks for the awesome giveaway, too!!

Mary Preston said...

An amazing cast.


Melissa (Books and Things) said...

YaY! Tried commenting yesterday, but blogger wouldn't let me... :)

I love this series. I just love Bones and Spade! I can't wait for Ian's book tho. It should have lots of snark. Plus to see that rogue in love... LOL!!

AngelaC said...

Great casting UTC. Vlad and Bones....*sigh*
and Mencheres...*thud*

ML said...

Great cast. I love Emma Stone and I think she'd be a great Cat.

The Book Diva said...

I don't picture Emma Stone as Cat or Catherine Zeta Jones as Cat's mom, but the rest I love. It's hard to find just the right ones that work.

Wicked said...

Love your choices! Bones and Cat are perfectly cast! I thought your Ian was too baby faced, but still cute. I could have sworn that when I read Eternal Kiss of Darkness, Kira had auburn hair. And then cat mentions he redish hair when she shows up in This Side of the Grave.

Jolene and Family said...

I've heard so many great things about this series that I felt like I was missing out on something great. I just ordered the first book in the series, can't wait to get started!!!

J.R. @ The TBR Pile said...

I'm brand spanking new to this series. I agree with your picks too. Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

toni said...

I love Cat and Bones!

Carol L. said...

I have never heard of this book but I'm just a beginner so I'm trying to read anything I can get my hands on and this will be the beginning.

MeikkiBeibi said...

Ben and Henry... damn... am I drooling? Sorry about that. * mops up *

I love Frost's books, I still haven't gotten to the Night Huntress World books, hence wanting First Drop of Crimson if I happen to win. :)
