My Love Songs & Other Lies Dream Cast

I initially won an ARC of this adorable book in a debut author giveaway back in January. I was so excited when Jessica and my good friend Kester formed the street team in preparation for the release of this adorable YA Contemporary.

A big thank you to Kester at lilbooklovers  for inviting me to participate in the Love Songs & Other Lies Blog Tour! If you haven’t checked out his blog or chatted with him on social media than you are missing out! He’s such a fun person to have gotten to know and I can’t wait to see what other tours he puts out there for us!

Also, a huge thank you to Jessica Pennington! She’s been so wonderful to work with these past few months and I can’t wait to read her next YA Contemporary next year! She’s written a fantastic debut!

About the Book

Love Songs & Other Lies Cover

Title: Love Songs & Other Lies

Author: Jessica Pennington

Publisher: Tor Teen

Release Date: April 24th, 2018

Genre: YA Contemporary Romance

Synopsis: It’s summer romance and second chances, the songs that stay in your head, and the boy you’ll never forget.

Two years after rock-song-worthy heartbreak, Virginia Miller is looking forward to a fun, carefree summer. Her friends just landed a spot on a battling bands reality show, and Vee is joining them for her dream internship on tour. Three months with future rockstars seems like an epic summer plan. Until she learns she’ll also be sharing the bus with Cam. Her first love, and her first heartbreak. Now Vee has more than just cameras to dodge, and Cam’s determination to win her forgiveness is causing TMZ-worthy problems for both of them. With cameras rolling, she’ll have to decide if her favorite breakup anthem deserves a new ending. And if she’s brave enough to expose her own secrets to keep Cam’s under wraps.

Dream Cast



I would definitely cast Hailee Steinfeld as Vee! I loved her in Begin Again where she played a teen who learns to connect with her father through music. While reading Love Songs and Other Lies I kept picturing her character from that movie and knew she was my pick for Vee’s character!






My pick for Cam is Alex Pettyfer. I loved him in Beastly and thought he’d do well playing the withdrawn Cameron Fuller!




My sweet and adorable Ansel Elgort is my Logan! He’s got the goofy and light-hearted personality that Logan has! I feel like he’d make for the most understanding of best friends and great lead singer!!





Nick Robinson is who I’d pick for Anders. He’s shy and genuine, a true friend! I feel like Nick’s roles have really shaped him into the character that just makes you smile.

Nat Wolff is my Reese! The prankster who wants to get all the attention from the ladies. I love his acting style when it comes to the adorable and funny sidekick and I feel like that is Reese’s character. He’s always up for playing tricks and getting people to do crazy things!




About the Author

Jessica Pennington

Jessica Pennington is no stranger to the combination of love and drama. She’s a wedding planner, after all. A writer since the age of ten—when she sought publication for her poem about a tree—Jessica likes the challenge of finding the humor in a sad situation or highlighting the awkwardness in a romantic one. She lives in a Michigan beach town suspiciously similar to the one in her books, where she’s currently finishing her second novel, WHEN SUMMER ENDS, out April 2019.

      1. Awe! You’re the sweetest! 😍 I love doing castings! I did my first casting for Speak Easy Speak Love last year. I used to see movies every weekend but since joining the book community I don’t see many of them now. It’s fun to merge my love of movies with books!


    1. Yess!! I’m so glad you love it! I felt the same way!! I loved her in Begin Again and Pitch Perfect! I’m also loving her as a guest mentor on The Voice this season. She felt like the perfect fit!


  1. I enjoy casting posts as it gives me insight into the book characters, plus I get to see all the pretty people. Thanks for the excellent picks for this book–maybe it will be made into a movie someday!
