Make It A Movie Monday is hosted by Jenna @ Making The Grade. It's a place to talk about the books we wish would be made into a movie and if we were making the movie, how would we do it!
My pick for this week is:
Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe by Shelley Coriell
Big-hearted Chloe Camden is the queen of her universe until her best friend shreds her reputation and her school counselor axes her junior independent study project. Chloe is forced to take on a meaningful project in order to pass, and so she joins her school’s struggling radio station, where the other students don’t find her too queenly. Ostracized by her former BFs and struggling with her beloved Grams’s mental deterioration, lonely Chloe ends up hosting a call-in show that gets the station much-needed publicity and, in the end, trouble. She also befriends radio techie and loner Duncan Moore, a quiet soul with a romantic heart. On and off the air, Chloe faces her loneliness and helps others find the fun and joy in everyday life. Readers will fall in love with Chloe as she falls in love with the radio station and the misfits who call it home.
I love the story of Chloe and the KDRS crew! They are fun and spunky and it's exactly the type of story that would make an excellent Teen RomCom :0)
Welcome, Caller, This is Chloe Dream Cast:
Chloe - Jillian Rose Reed - Actress (Awkward)
Jillian is so much fun on Awkward! She's spunky and outspoken, which is perfect for Chloe. I would love to watch her host her own KDRS show.
Duncan - Shane Coffey - Actor (Pretty Little Liars)
Duncan makes me want to hug him and Shane has definitely got adorable hugability! Plus he's so good at being the nice guy on Pretty Little Liars, or at least as nice as anyone can be on that show :0)
Clementine - Jane Levy - Actress (Suburgatory)
Jane's character on Suburgatory is crazy, cynical and sarcastic, and she pulls it of so well. Clem has definitely got the snarkiness and I think this would be a perfect fit!
Have you read Chloe? What do you think of my cast picks? Who would you choose?

Oh gosh, the pressure! Uh...the environment!ReplyDelete
Angie @ Pinkindle Reads & Reviews
I guess I'll choose books as our topic. :)ReplyDelete
I'd talk about books or a popular tv show.ReplyDelete
Um... Any of the latest issues in my country maybe Political issues like Corruption or social issues like alarmingly low child sex ratio or some environmental issue... There are a lot of things....ReplyDelete
I'd love to take calls about local urban legends and first-hand experience with them:)ReplyDelete
Next week? Glee season FINALE. Haha! Yeah, Gleek here, but it's what I'm gonna want to talk about...ReplyDelete
Hmm, my topic would probably be discussion on what everyone's favorite mythological creature (vampires, werewolves, witches, angels, shapeshifters, etc.) to read about and why.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the chance for the giveaway!!
Stephanie @ Little Red Reads
New books, movies, music...the list is endless.ReplyDelete
Well, since we're coming up on Memorial Day I'd ask callers to to talk about what plans they had for the long weekend. Are you going to the lake, visiting family or just goofing off?ReplyDelete
Books and music.ReplyDelete
This is a fun post! When I was reading the galley I was trying to think who would play the characters and I couldn't quite peg down Chloe or Duncan...I like your choices!ReplyDelete
As for a show of my own, my brother actually has his own and I help him out sometimes - lots of music, lots of local San Diego coverage, and sports.
What a fun post! :) I can't wait to read this book, it sounds great.ReplyDelete
Hm... Maybe I would talk about mythology? It's always something interesting to hear people talk about. ORRR maybe I would rant about public transport etiquette LOL. Thanks for the giveaway!
I would like to talk about a reality show or other tv showReplyDelete
Kpop, or more specifically, SNSD.ReplyDelete
Books- upcoming releases and do interviews with authors!ReplyDelete
I'd take a hint from this post and do a show about the pros and cons of books morphing into films/shows. :)ReplyDelete
I would choose the topic of summer events at the local library! Most libraries have fantastic, free programs for kids, teens, and adults, and more people need to be made aware of this. :-)ReplyDelete
Books. Definitely books. <3ReplyDelete
Books - more specifically books that have made an impact on my life. Like how I fully grasped the understanding that just because you're great and the hero doesn't mean that life is fair. That's what the Princess Bride taught me. You know... other books like that.ReplyDelete
And then I'd go on the internet and find books that celebrities have said changed their lives. I think it'd be fun.
I could definitely see this being a movie but I'm sure that it would lose all the depth. It'd be an adorable, romcom and I'd definitely watch it, but I doubt the family issues and such would come across with the same depth it did in the book.ReplyDelete
As for a talk show...hmm. How about this? Dog or cats? Does it really have to be one or the other?
I would totally talk about young adult books.ReplyDelete
YA Books, duh!ReplyDelete
Most embarrassing moment.ReplyDelete
about boooooooks and favorite bands!! One direction! hahaReplyDelete
Wow, really good pick for casting Chloe! She was so funny on the show Awkward! I'd probably talk about movies & books as a topic.ReplyDelete
Hmm...most likely movies...and tv shows :D Thanks for the amazing giveaway! :DReplyDelete
I would have philosophical discussions like what is the meaning of life. Serious stuff.ReplyDelete
Hmm. I guess I would talke about musicReplyDelete
Teenagers&Reading in present.ReplyDelete
My topic would be books.ReplyDelete
Politics! Thanks for the giveaway. I read a library copy of this just last week and loved it. I'd love to win a copy of my own.ReplyDelete
I'd talk about YA books! Teens reading, what's new, ect! :DReplyDelete
I'd definitely talk about the books that are being released that week and which I'm looking forward, too. Then I'd ask callers to give their opinions! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the great giveaway!
Definitely about putting pressure on J.K. Rowling to come up with another great kid series!!!!
I would choose the topic of testing in schools. I think they stress kids out these days and at a very early age.ReplyDelete
Celebrity Gossip, hahaReplyDelete
I love hearing people talk about their encounters with the supernatural! That would definitely be a topic.ReplyDelete
I think I'm going to talk about something popular like The Avengers. I might also rant about books I recommend this week too! x)ReplyDelete
I read this book last month and really loved it. Your casts of the characters are perfect! Especially Chloe. Jillian would be amazing Chloe <3 Thank you for the giveaway! :)
I would so talk about the stupidity of my country's governmentReplyDelete
awesome reads, tv shows, and movies :) like i'll do a review :)ReplyDelete
50 Shades of Grey. ;DReplyDelete
The topic I would choose would be ZOMBIES: are they possible and what would we do if they were? =PReplyDelete
LOVE TRIANGLES! Think about the ratings and callers!ReplyDelete
Love Lives..only the interesting ones though/ReplyDelete
Romance I guess and heartbreak I think those have the best songs :)ReplyDelete
Probably Summer Reads and why they're so addictive!! I read reviewed the ARC of Welcome Caller, This is Chloe and I LOVED it so much. Would love to win a finished copy! And fun post :) The cast is perfect-ish. Jillian would make a great Chloe! Thanks for the giveaway!ReplyDelete
