Fandom Mashups (37)

Fandom Mashups is a feature hosted by Lunar Rainbows Reviews. There's a different scenario each week, and you choose a "dream team" of five characters from five different fandoms whom you think are best suited for the situation.

This week's topic is:
You've decided to start a band - you know, because you rock and it's time the whole world knew it! Which characters do you want in your band?

Thinking about this week's fandom mashup made me realize that I've read quite a few books in which music plays a central role. I love playing Rock Band, but that's about the extent of my musical "talent." XD So I'd have to be a roadie or something for this band, but so long as I got to hang out with these characters, that'd be absolutely fine with me!

  1. Cole St. Clair (The Wolves of Mercy Falls): BELIEVE ME, it was extremely tough choosing between Cole and Sam, but Cole's snark would make this entire experience that much more entertaining, so I'm going with Cole. I know Micheline won't be surprised by my answer, and I'm curious to see if she chose Sam, lol!
  2. Jem Carstairs (The Infernal Devices): OK, I know Jem is more of a classical musician being a violinist, but I think his extraordinary talent would make this band unique, and I'm already imagining a rock meets classical mashup!
  3. Mia Hall (If I Stay): Another classical musician, cellist Mia would complement Jem perfectly.
  4. Lisa Simpson: Because this band needs some baritone saxophone!
  5. Seraphina Dombegh (Seraphina): An outstanding musician herself and used to collaborating, Seraphina would have zero problem keeping up with the rest of this band.

    1. We can totally share Lisa, lol! And I think Seraphina is EXACTLY your type of read! The high fantasy elements are spot-on, and ... DRAGONS!

  3. I don't know the last two, but the first three are great picks!

    I'm blank right now, I don't know who I'd pick in my band.

  4. I know Lisa Simpson and Cole. Both excellent musicians! I didn't even think about Lisa. I've heard you talk a lot about Infernal Devices but even though I love Mortal Instruments, I haven't jumped on that train yet. I saw your review for Seraphina too and it seems like one that I'd enjoy.

    1. Seraphina was so, so amazing! And Seraphina the character is a great MC- she's funny, brave, and an exceptional musician. :D

  5. I put this on our Book Club list for 2016. So excited to read it! You should give The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah a try. It's WWII France and it is utterly amazing. Possibly the best book I've ever read. And technically, writing wise, it's flawless.
