FRIDAYY!  Which means it’s pretty much happy hour, right? (For those of you, 21 and older of course. Ahem. We must be responsible.) If you haven’t guessed […]

Return of BEA Part of It: Broadway + Brews - […] your time is maximized to the fullest. I’m combining my two posts from last year (Broadway + beers) because so many of my suggestions are the same and this post is truly a supplement to those. (Be […]

molly @ wrapped up in books - Great list! I loved the wine bar recommendations and was thrilled to find one with a vegetarian menu!

Alexa Y. - You know, growing up, I was raised to believe that I was going to be a mixed drinks kind of girl when I started drinking alcohol. But since moving the US and trying out beers, I’ve found I’m hooked. I’m now that girl who will probably have a beer in hand in lieu of a mixed drink or some wine lol. Just putting that out there 😉

Great suggestions! I have to try Beer Authority sometime 🙂

Tabitha S. - OH. I love these posts you guys have been doing! Just wrote down Gregory’s Coffee in my planner, so I’ll remember it for once I start school. Iced coffee is my weakness.

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Oh girl, I looooove craft beer. When we visit Colorado, we make a point of visiting the local craft breweries. Now I just need to find someone to go with me to these wonderful places you’ve mentioned because my friends are not beer drinkers! Haha.

elena - you make me want to drink craft beer. </3

Nisha - Honor from In Honor. The strength she displayed after her brother’s death was quite inspiring.

The Bumble Girl - Tiger Lily – even though she doesn’t speak much and doesn’t show any emotion, she does care about how others feel and what her place is in their world. Her life and story has stayed with me, she is not a character that I will soon forget.
Great interview! I love the pink themed cover! Sounds like a fun series to follow 🙂

Hemborgwife - I really enjoyed Katsa in Graceling, from the start I enjoyed her sense of right and wrong and then her and Po were just so romantic!

July 28, 2012 - 2:39 am

Jasmine Rose - Annabeth in Percy Jackson has always stood out to me. Not only is she pretty kick-a** and can hold her own in a fight, but she’s also strong-willed and yet still questions herself. Basically, she’s a normal teenager who can kick bad guy butt ;]

July 27, 2012 - 2:41 pm

Melissa Sue - This is SO COOL!! Things like this never happy to me. Very neat that you got to meet the author and struck up a friendship with her.

I’m really looking forward to reading this book, so I hope I win!! I totally, totally used to drive by boys’ houses REAAAAAAALLLLLY slow to see if they were home.

Jana @ That Artsy Reader Girl - I totally agree with Alexa on Clem from Unbreak My Heart. I loved her so much because she was amazingly real to me. So many of us go through heartbreak, and hers really spoke to me. 🙂

Thanks for the giveaway, and what an awesome interview!

July 25, 2012 - 11:56 am

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - I have three favorite characters from YA contemporary novels right now (and don’t get me started on fantasy because there’s a LOT for that!): Leah from Such a Rush, Sam from My Life Next Door and Clem from Unbreak My Heart. These characters are SO REAL and I love that they’re not perfect.

July 25, 2012 - 11:38 am

Jess @ Gone with the Words - Such a fun interview!!

There are so many female characters that are noteworthy and standout, so it’s hard to name just one.

I think I’ll go with June, from Legend by Marie Lu. June is one of the smartest people in that world and she has military training to boot. She pretty much kicks ass. 🙂

VeganYANerds - I remember your review of this and shame on me because I still haven’t managed to get a copy and read it yet, I promise I will soon!

I rally enjoyed this interview and I’m glad that Carley has more books due out, and I really love the cover, it looks so sweet!
