One of Candice Accola’s (Vampire Diaries) favorite books is Still Life with Woodpecker (Tom Robbins, 1980) which some have dubbed a “post-modern fairy tale”. It follows the story of an environmentalist princess’ love affair with an outlaw. The novel features an eclectic variety of topics that span from aliens, bombs, and consumerism, to royalty, romance, and outer space. While it may be an nontraditional tale of love, it will keep you invested in every surprising plot twist and turn.
Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl) is a man of many voices. If his husky, silky voice for Chuck Bass has girls swooning, then his natural British accent will have girls and geeks alike drooling for the handsome, mysterious, and masochistic Will: the protagonist in Cassandra Clare’s series of books, The Infernal Devices (2010-Present). Westwick is a huge fan of the series and consequently his penchant for an array of accents was taken advantage of for the series’ audiobook; however, when he returned to Simon and Schuster to tape the audiobook for Clockwork Prince, he used his infamous natural British accent. It looks like Westwick’s sophisticated flare on Gossip Girl is partnered with a geekier sweet tooth for fantasy; and to think we had all imagined his only fantasies could involve a pretty Ms. Waldorf on the Upper East Side… Looks like the Manhattan social hierarchy isn’t the only realm Westwick wants to explore and dominate.
Ian Somerhalder (VampireDiaries) was not shy to put himself into consideration for the coveted role of Christian Grey in the film adaptation of the erotic novel, Fifty Shades of Grey (E. L. James, 2011). Somerhalder was so eager to play Christian that during a Twitter discussion with Bret Easton Ellis regarding “American Psycho” fame, he tweeted: “Id so love to be Christian Grey w/you&Angelina Jolie. Ive only waited 10 years to do a movie w/u. Im grown up now-no worries.” (SIC) Fifty Shades of Grey is the first book in a trilogy that tells the story of the S&M filled relationship between 22-year-old college graduate, Anastasia Steele, and 27-year-old entrepreneur, Christian Grey. It seems that Somerhalder must have found a piece he feels he can really sink his teeth into…
Lucy Hale and Nina Dobrev
It looks like Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars) and Nina Dobrev (Vampire Diaries) have literary taste in common. They both have curled up with The Lovely Bones (Alice Sebold, 2002) which tells the tragic story of 14-year-old Susie Salmon who was raped and murdered in a cornfield. The book focuses on Susie’s process of understanding and accepting her death as she watches her loved ones cope while she is in heaven.
Apparently Chace Crawford’s (Gossip Girl) literary interests don’t stray far from those of Nate Archibald. One of his favorites is Confessions of an Economic Hit Man (John Perkins, 2004) in which Perkins describes the trajectory of his career beginning with his work for the consulting firm Chas. T. Main in Boston and his relationship with the National Security Agency (NSA) which lead him to call himself an “economic hit man.”
Taylor Momsen’s (Gossip Girl) favorite books are A Time for Dancing (Davida Wills Hurwin, 2009) and the works of Lemony Snickett who is renowned for A Series of Unfortunate Events. A Time for Dancing follows the story of two best friends: Samantha and Juliana, who are approaching the volatile transition between adolescence and young adulthood as they must choose to go to college or become professional dancers. However, their worlds are darkened when Juliana is diagnosed with untreatable cancer. Snickett’s most famous books are from A Series of Unfortunate Events (1999-2006) which chronicle the lives of three orphaned siblings: Violet, Klaus, and Sunny Baudelaire, who are abused by Count Olaf- their distant cousin who was granted custody over them. Snickett paints the incredibly dark and ominous story of these siblings with colorful and vivid language that inundates the reader and seamlessly sucks them into the shocking adventure of three orphans’ survival. It’s no wonder Momsen would fall in love with books that are darker than her eye- shadow.
