Aly Michalka: My Favorite Book Is...

Bandslam stars Vanessa Hudgens, Gaelan Connell and Alyson Michalka have taught us that music education is very important but so are books.

The trio recently sat down with Scholastic to chat about their favorite reads.

Aly, 20, shared that her fave book is “The Bad Beginning,” the first book in the 10-book series, “A Series of Unfortunate Events” by Lemony Snicket while Gaelan, also 20, prefers “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeleine L’Engle.

Check out the vids below and tell us — what is your favorite book?

  • Sónia

    Anyone knows how is going bandslam in the box-office??
    I mean, I just listened that on friday just got 890.000 dollars, which is not really good :S
    But I also read that today they did 11.7 million dollars (in the 4th place), which is not bad at all :/
    But I’m still hoping that in the end of the weekend bandslam make more, I’m hoping bandslam to the 20 millions…
    Please answer me if you know that is true or not
    P.S- sorry my english but I’m portuguese

  • Rebekah


  • Bibi

    the Harry Potter books are the best :D but i agree, the Twilight books are good too

  • Susie

    A song of ice and fire by George R R Martin! There are a lot of twists there.

  • nonifan

    Wrinkle in Time was my favorite book when I was ten. I should check it out again to see if it still holds up now that I’m old. :wink:

  • maichi

    Twilight sucks.

  • Katty

    I like a lot of different books.
    I can’t go see Bandslam this weekend! So sad, I went to a concert last night, and am exhausted, so I can’t see it today. And, on top of that, it isn’t at my local movie theatre, so I need to go to the next town over sometime this week or next weekend. :(

  • Angelita

    i really like poseur and gossip girl series, the great gatsby, to kill a mockingbird, and lord of the flies

  • Alex

    Well i’m gonna go ahead and say one that i doubt any of you have heard of. The Toyminator by Robert Rankin YEAH!

  • Faith

    Yes, I did read them. They were good when I first strated reading them, and I got to like book 8, but then I got tired of them. I found another author that I LOVE!!!! Her name is Margaret Peterson Haddix. Her books are awesome! When it seems like you’ve firgured the book out, there’s another twist.

    I looove Harry Potter! And Mortal Instruments! A Series of Unfortunate Events was amazing too, it was the 2nd series I ever read. But I hated the 9th one and didn’t understand all the new characters towards the end.

  • twilightlover108

    Twilight Saga and The Host!

  • awurbii

    A Series of Unfortunate Events has to be my favorite book series. If you haven’t taken the time to read them you should because they are fantastic children books. So much attention has gone to the Twilight series and though they are great books; there is a much better selection out there.

  • Daisy

    pollyanna and pollyanna grown up by eleanor h porter.

  • lm

    I read all kinds of books which are the night worls series, Twlight, evermore and harry potter and vampire academy series and a really good book in need

  • Jordan

    JRR Tolkien’s Hobbit and Lord of the Rings are really good books :)

    as well as Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist


    identical, crank, glass, burned and impulse by Ellen Hopkins


    Ohh and twilight

  • Lila

    YUCK I hate Vanessa, shes ugly

  • Vashely fan

    omg guys dont know if the website im reading this from is you know accurate but it said vanessa said herself that her and zac are getting married but hasnt set a date yet. she said they have been engaged for a few months. now guys i dont know if this site tells the truth but they quoted her on it. Zanessa is so adorable. hope 2 get married soon. i will tears of joy.

  • Eika

    @Lila: don’t be rude.

  • Susie

    @Vashely fan:

    I doubt it though because they don’t talk about relationship so I’m sure if they are getting married they wouldn’t blurb about and also Zac said he is not getting married until he is 30 plus Vanessa said she is too young to get married.

  • Shr
