The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis Casting News

As you may know, Passionflix is turning our romance novels into movies and the latest movie being made is The Trouble with Mistletoe by Jill Shalvis. But did you guys see that Jill Shalvis announced on her website this week that The Trouble with Mistletoe Movie has a hero and heroine?

Of all the movies that have been made so far, this is my favorite casting because it’s so close to how I saw both Keane and Willa in my head while reading their story. I’m pretty stoked about this casting and hope that their acting is just as perfect. Aside from Hollywood Dirt, this is the movie that I’m most looking forward to. I can’t wait to see it!

Bookish Swag Wishlist

I’m one of those romance readers that lives 20 minutes away from The Ripped Bodice. I don’t get out to the store very often because I don’t buy books in print anymore and I was thinking the other day about things I wish they sold at TRB. Things that I can’t find anywhere but want in my grubby little hands. I want very specific romance themed collectibles.

Here’s a specific list of things I wish I could buy from The Ripped Bodice or…anywhere, really.

Coffee Mugs

Romance Coffee Mug

This is a fabulous coffee mug and I love that it’s romance themed but I’d like to drink my morning coffee out of an I’m an Oxford Girl” coffee mug or a “Wallflowers Rule!” mug or a I Left My Heart in Heartbreaker Bay mug. You get where I’m going with all of this right?

Totes

Book Totes

Wouldn’t it be fun to have a Briar Hockey tote to carry all of the things around? Or how about a Royally tote or a Play by Play tote with all of those yummy looking covers on it? I know that I can’t be the only one to want one of these, am I?

Book Pins

Book Pins

A few years ago at RWA, Julie James was sporting a “JUDD IS MY BOYFRIEND” pin and I wanted it. All these years later and I still want it. I would buy it. I swear I would and I want other romance related pins too.

T-Shirts

Book Shirts

I’d like to rock a Rusk University tee, a Harkness College tee or a Briars baseball cap. I’d love to write in a Psy/Changelings notebook, own a funko type doll of Sam Starrett, etc…

These are the things that I would go to bookstores for, the things that I want. Does anyone know where I can find some? There’s plenty of YA stuff around but I’m looking for romance stuff.

What do you think about the casting of Keane and Willa for The Trouble with Mistletoe movie? What kinds of romance collectibles do you want to see in bookstores? Do you know of any places that sell romance themed collectibles?

    • I’ve seen plenty of stuff for classic books and even YA books/series but I really want more romance stuff. I’ll just keep wishing because I can’t do those things myself. 🙁
