    Hello Mr. Chainani, (Hey-yo!)
    I am curious and therefore have a quick question (hence the reason I am posting this here…).

    Are the names Sophie and Clarissa references to Meryl Streep?
    I know she starred in both Sophie’s Choice as well as in The Hours (in while ch she played Clarissa Vaughan).

    I might as well lay down some other things t…[Read more]

    Helloo!
    I’m thinking of looking into becoming a novelist. The following questions might help me decide if writing is really the right career for me. However, these questions are a bit personal, so you do not have to answer them if you do not feel comfortable in doing so.
    I was wondering:
    1. Do you have a certain writing process?
    2. How do you d…[Read more]

        I’m obviously no Soman, sorry, but I think I might be able to answer your 4th question.

        I think Soman once mentioned that Wwhen Soman first started writing novels, it was not his main/full-time job. He had another job then. But as his books gained popularity, novel writing became his full time job.

        At least that’s what I think. I’m not sure if…[Read more]

    I just had an idea!!!! Maybe Lara Pulver could play the role of Lady Lesso (the actress she’s young – 38 – but I think she could make it work!

        thesgeturtle replied 7 months, 3 weeks ago

        *the actress is

        veronikaofliteraya replied 7 months, 3 weeks ago

        I think Helena Bonham Carter would be a good choice for Lady Lesso. I have no idea who the other actress is, so I can’t compare

        thesgeturtle replied 7 months, 3 weeks ago

        I was thinking her, Cate Blanchett, and Angelina Jolie are also all good choices for Lady Lesso.
        I could definitely see Helena Bonham Carter being Lady Lesso!

    Okay… so I know Hophie is a TOXIC relationship… but that is my favorite Sophie ship 🙂
    Just to think that Hort actually loved her (or her hair…) from the moment they met despite the fact that they were villains 😊

    Though, I sort of think Sophie will end up alone because she was fine with being alone at the end of TLEA but then went boy…[Read more]

    All of these picks are based off of the actor’s physical appearances, not necessarily off of their acting abilities.
    Agatha: Maisie Williams reminds me of Agatha in GOT. I think she could pull off a teenage look…. If not her, maybe the girl who was Agatha in the QFG trailer. Willow Shields might be a good pick too if she wore a wig or dyed her h…[Read more]

        thesgeturtle replied 8 months, 1 week ago

        For the ones that I said “I don’t know” to, I think the QFG actors could take in that role (if they act, that is).

          ladyofthebooksge replied 8 months, 1 week ago

          I think Angelina Joliet should play lady lesson because she already played a villain role, and Maleficent gives me the lady lesson vibe

          ladyofthebooksge replied 8 months, 1 week ago

          Lady Lesso*

        ladyofthebooksge replied 8 months, 1 week ago

        This cast is pretty good… But I imagined Evelyn more like Emma Watson and Michelle Pffiefer

        thesgeturtle replied 8 months, 1 week ago

        I could see those two being Evelyn Sader…🤔😊👍

        thesgeturtle replied 8 months, 1 week ago

        Now I’m considering Raquel Cassidy for Lady Lesso… :/
        Or Angelina Jolie…
        Or Lana Parrilla…
        Or Helena Bonham Carter….
        :/ :/ :/ :/ 🙂
        My top picks are Raquel Cassidy or Cate Blanchett 🙂

        thesgeturtle replied 8 months, 1 week ago

        Oh! And I think having Johnny Depp do a voice over for Castor (and maybe Pollux) would be quite amazing 🙂

    I FOUND A ONCE UPON A TIME REFERENCE IN BOOK 5!!! (Sorry that this was in all caps… I was excited)

        redslippers replied 9 months ago

        Where?

        thesgeturtle replied 9 months ago

        It’s in the chapter “What Makes Your Heart Beat?” and it refers to the third episode of the sixth season.
        “For tonight, [Rumpelstiltskin] is my fairy godmother… father…? Whatever!” Ella (episode three of season 6).

        Bogden says some similar words on page 321 of book 5:

        “‘So Merlin is your fairy godmother?’ said Bogden. “Or father. Or whatever.’”

        Do you all want to create a group that makes theories about minor characters?

        Sounds good! 🙂
        How about we just tag each other when we post new “minor-character theories”?

        Oh, and good job @everneveragathasophie for spotting it too. 🙂

        These tiny details make the stories so much more interesting (not to say that they were boring).

    Hi Soman/Mr. Chainani/Great Wise One, or anyone else who is reading this,
    This isn’t a question, but I wanted to share that I found a Madonna reference in book 3! 🙂
    Okay…. That’s all.
    I just wanted to share this with other people who like SGE (okay… “like” is an understatement for some people *cough* me *cough*).

        WAIT WHAT IS IT

        thesgeturtle replied 9 months, 1 week ago

        In book three, of the chapters is called “Rebel Hearts” which, I think, refers to Madonna’s album Rebel Heart (I would underline the title but I can’t in this website).

        Soman Chainani replied 9 months, 1 week ago

        Lol. There’s at least 500 madonna references in SGE.
