I am so happy to be part of the HEARTBREAKERS BLOG TOUR this year! I asked each author featured a “tricky two” – two questions about the last year and the coming year – check out their answers every day. Also, don’t forget to enter the Tour-wide giveaway on the bottom of each post!
I’m also super happy to welcome my friend Jeri Smith-Ready, who is one of my favourite authors of ALL time!
1. Best book you read in 2013?
Jennzah, thank you SO MUCH for hosting me on your blog as part of the Heartbreakers tour! I’m especially excited about this stop, since we’ve known each other FOREVER (well, since the internet began, which is the same thing).
Can I cheat and name a favorite series instead? My favorite 2013 books were a contemporary YA trilogy set in Ireland called the Butterfly novels, by Denise Deegan: And By the Way, And For Your Information, and And Actually… The covers and descriptions make them seem light and fluffy, but they’re so, so poignant. I cried a million tears during each of them. They’re beautifully written, and also some of the most realistic portrayals of teens I’ve ever read. More people need to read them!
2. What are you most excited for in 2014??
The new Captain America movie! When it comes to the Avengers, Iron Man’s the one I relate to most, but if I had to marry one, it’d be Captain America. And I’m not even patriotic. I just love the damaged, self- sacrificing good-guy hero. I hope the new movie doesn’t suck.
