Cassie K - Wow! Great video! I’m going to look into Walk Too Moons, and The Last Song. I tried watching the movie, but… My friend and I gave up halfway through. I have read othervbooks by Sharon Creech, but never this one that you were talking about. Thanks E!

April Books & Wine - Ahhhh, Tiger Lily is completely wonderful and so well written. I hope you fall head over heels in love.

And omg Walk Two Moons totally brings me back to fourth grade when my teacher read that out loud to us.

Mary @ My Sisters Bookshelf - I like these travel pics! Sometimes I have a tendency to go straight beach reads and I need to go beach reads by way of Jhumpra Lahiri ๐Ÿ™‚

Paige - I’m so jealous of Speechless because I loved Saving June by Hannah Harrington! I read The Last Song and watched the movie too and I enjoyed both they were really good =) You can check out my IMM over at Comfort Books!

Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Aww, thank you for the sweet birthday shoutout E! Lots of love xo

And for all the books you’ve suggested for our Travel Tales, the only one I haven’t read is The Namesake. Hmm, maybe I should go and check it out…

And YAY SPEECHLESS! I LOVED that book so much.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

July 25, 2012 - 5:39 am

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!
