Spotlight Sunday: Dreamcasting–When Is a Picture Worth More Than a Thousand Words?

Spotlight Sunday on Swoony Boys Podcast and Fiction Fare

By now you know that when the four of us are together, in person or via the magic of the internet, the conversations almost always come back to books. We love them. We love the people who write them, the people who publish them, and the people who read them. In fact, we have so many feelings about books that we wanted to find a way to share our conversations with you!

Welcome to a new week of Spotlight Sunday, hosted by Fiction Fare (Erin & Jaime) and Swoony Boys Podcast (Kassiah & Meg), where we dish about ALL things bookish. Each week we’ll post a topic, we’ll start the conversation by telling you some of our thoughts, and then it will be your turn to sound off in the comment section.

Have a topic you’d like to discuss on Spotlight Sunday? Fill out the form here.

Do you like to look at dreamcasts or does it take away from your imagination? Do you dreamcast? If so, is it during a read or after?

Meg: I am obsessed with dreamcasting and I’d like to think it’s something I’m pretty good at. (Is that terrible to say?) I get such vivid pictures of the characters in my head when I’m reading that I feel like I have to dreamcast. Sometimes a person pops into my head while I’m reading and other times I stop reading to find the person and then continue reading. It’s a sickness, but one I happily indulge. Of course the things I’ve typed into google to find my perfect guy are sometimes… let’s just say I delete my history often.

Kassiah: Meg is the queen of dreamcasts, so I like to look at hers. I don’t usually like to look at other people’s though, because I don’t usually agree. Sometimes I dreamcast, and when I do, it’s usually after I read. But honestly, I usually just send the description and stuff that is important to Meg and she finds the perfect boy. Always.

Jaime: I never dreamcast – I’m horrible at it because I always want the guy I’m reading about to be 6’2” with dark hair and a sexy face. I mean.. Etienne is most definitely not SHORT in my head. I’m just saying. I don’t mind looking at other people’s casting, but that’s always tough too, I mean I saw someone cast Ashley Greene as a book girl the other day and I was all “no way, she’s Alice.” In all seriousness, if I need to have someone cast I go to Meg because she’s the best at it! You should see who she picked as Xander when I needed a picture – it was perfect! 🙂

Erin: I never dreamcast because I’m with Jaime…all of the guys would be tall, dark, and dreamy. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Also, it never fails that if a book is made into a movie, I am not usually excited about who is chosen for the characters I love because I don’t ever picture them as specific people…or the people chosen don’t do the characters justice. ARE super good at it and maybe Hollywood needs to hire you for any future novels being turned into movies…just saying.

Now that you’ve read some of our thoughts, let us know what you’re thinking in the comments below! We’ll be back next week with a brand new topic and lots more to talk about.
