Dancing With the Stars: Bookish Edition!

Dancing With the Stars! Cha Cha! Waltz! Jive!


I mean, haven’t you ever asked yourself: which bookish stars would be on DWTS? And who ever would their partners be?

Thank goodness my astoundingly intelligent and imaginative brain is here to answer such questions. You’re welcome.

Harry Potter & Allison Holker

After, you know, living, Harry’s got to do something else to keep his fame up.

Oh look! DWTS! How convenient!

And since poor Harry grew up without a mother, who better to partner with than the motherly Allison Holker!

Celaena Sardothien & Maksim Chmerkovskiy

While it might not be the safest idea to combine Maks’ temper and an actual assassin, it sure would make for good TV!



Captain Thorne & Jenna Johnson

Well, well, well! Wouldn’t this be quite the humorous, youthful pair!

And after saving the world and all, I’m sure our favorite captain would love to test his flirting dancing skills.

Katniss Everdeen & Derek Hough

Our “cheery” Hunger Games champion would surely love to participate in a competition that doesn’t involve fighting to the death!

And there would certainly be some spicy entertainment watching Katniss attempt to maim Derek Hough while he continues to be the perfect gentleman. Spicy indeed.

Albus Dumbledore & Emma Slater

Dumbledore needs a break from all that headmaster-ing, doesn’t he?? And who better to help him through DWTS than Emma Slater! (a.k.a. the one who gets that one old guy every time)

Kestrel Trajan & Artem Chigvintsev

According to the blurb of The Winner’s Curse, Kestrel has two options: join the army or get married.


There’s also Dancing With the Stars! And there’s no one like the kind and noble Artem to tango with the sly and sweet Kestrel.

Apollo & Lindsay Arnold

Has Apollo got anything better to do than dance?

Well, since being forbidden from Mount Olympus and de-godded by Zeus, NO.

So it’d sure be fun to watch Apollo stare at himself in the mirror while Lindsay tries to actually teach him how to waltz!

Andie Walker & Sasha Faber

Sooner or later, our dear Andie’s going to have to do something other than walking dogs.


She can quick step right out of being the politician’s daughter and right into winning DWTS. And since poor Sasha has yet to win the mirror ball trophy, he needs a real competitive spirit to help him get there.

Mark Watney & Cheryl Burke

I mean, if you can survive on Mars, you can survive DWTS, right?

Humph. Well. Maybe with Cheryl Burke by your side!

America Singer & Gleb Savenchko


Now America can add Gleb to the list of men she can’t decide if she wants to marry and we can want to kill her EVEN MORE :))

Percy Jackson & Witney Carson

Sure, Percy can defeat the Titans and save Mount Olympus, but dancing?? Maybe not one of his talents…

Whether he wins or not, Witney’ll be sure that he has a jolly ‘ol time!

Princess Winter & Valentin Chmerkovisky

Princess Winter is…well…a bit…


Val, however, is very much grounded in reality. And with Winter’s graceful princessness, they’ve got a sure chance for winning!

William Herondale & Sharna Burgress

William Snark + Sharna Snark = LOTS OF SCRUMPTIOUS SNARK

William Dancing + Sharna Dancing = LOTS OF SCRUMPTIOUS DANCING


What Bookish DWTS partner are you rooting for? Are there any other famous bookish folks you can think of? And which REAL Dancing With the Stars team do you think will win the mirror ball trophy?

Feeling Greedy? Proud? Envious? Then Read These Books! | Top Ten Tuesday

Original Top Ten Tuesday Prompt: Ten books to read if you’re in the mood for _____

Revised Prompt Because I’m an Obnoxious Little Rebel: Books to read if you’re feeling one or all of the seven deadly sins (you are don’t lie). Basically, for each sin I shall select a book parallel. Basically, this post has nothing to do with the original Top Ten Tuesday prompt. Basically, I have no idea what I’m doing. 

1. Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Warner is a CRAZY little pumpkin in this book. I mean, he seems like the creepiest, most atrocious, most disgusting little villain. The whole lust thing? Not a good look for him.

BUT—are things really as they seem? Is this deadly sin even present, or is it all in Juliette’s perception? I suppose you’ll just have to read it to find out.

(Would I kill it as a car salesman or what)


2. Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

This book takes breaks from plotting against evil monsters and murderers in order to eat and talk about eating and to describe the eating.

Not going to lie, this pleases me. Immensely.

3. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo

Thieves & heists & money OH MY! 

Though there are a few other motivations sprinkled across these pages, characters generally launch an epic heist for the money. Just saying.

4. The Selection by Kiera Cass

While the official definition of sloth is: Laziness, unwillingness to work, the protagonist in this book features another form. 


Let’s take a step into our MC’s mind: Should I choose to marry this prince who is lovely and rich and powerful and kind or should I marry this poor boy who’s a pathetic jerk? You know what, I’ll just take three books to MAKE UP MY MIND.

Good heavens.

5. The Wrath and the Dawn by Renée Ahdieh

Basically, Sharzhad marries the king so that she can kill him in his sleep as revenge. No biggie.

I mean…it’s called The Wrath and the Dawn.

6. Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipotra & Dhonielle Clayton

Where there is professional ballerina-ing, there is envy.

A rough summary of this book: Your pirouettes are better than mine? I am envious let me back stab you. You have a better arch than mine? I am envious let me back stab you. You get the lead part and I didn’t? I am envious let me back stab you. And so on.


7. Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas

Celaena’s pride can triumph through anything. 

Slaving away in Endovier? Memories of the many innocents killed? Not taking a shower for a year or two? 


Which of the seven deadly sins have you committed today? Let’s have a blogging confessional in which you tell me ALL YOUR SECRETS.
