Overprotected Tour: Felicity Character Interview

 Thanks Felicity for taking the time to answer my questions!

So, how have you been? Has everyone recovered from all the craziness that happened with Ashlyn and Steward?
It's STUART, not Steward, but, haha... I won't tell anyone you messed up. Um, yeah, I'm good. That was the craziest thing EVER. Ash is fine now. She's totally happy living with her mom in the penthouse. Her dad? He still has some issues.  

What is the first thing you remember thinking when everything happened?
I wasn't sure I'd ever see Ash again. I mean, Stuart's always had a few wires loose, you know? The guy's just creeeeepy. I kinda wasn't surprised he went after her. I just hoped she'd be okay.  

What do you think your parents might have done if you'd been put in a similar situation? 
Flipped. What parents wouldn't go nuts?

What are you doing now? School? Work?
I got into Brown. YAY! Have no clue what I'm going to major in, but that's cool. It'll come to me.

Are You and Ashlyn still close?
Oh yeah. I don't head up to school for another month. I don't think that'll change, we're pretty tight.

Wha't happening with Ashlyn and Colin? Are they still close?
Colin. SWOON. The hottie's a stud. I want him - jk. I joke with Ash all the time about it. In all honesty, I'm glad she has him. She's still having a hard time adjusting to and dealing with everything her dad's done. Colin's her support right now. Between you and me, I think Charles is up to something. I dunno. Just a feeling.

Thanks for stopping by Felicity!

Ashlyn:A lonely society princess living in New York City.

Daddy hired you to be my bodyguard.

Colin: Childhood enemy, now her protector.

Daddy thought I’d be safe. He thought I’d never fall in love. He thought he could keep me forever.

Charles: obsessed with keeping her safe, keeping her his, he hires the one person he knows she could never fall in love with: Colin.

Daddy was wrong.

Top Ten Tuesday: My Top Ten Books I Want To See Made Into Movies

Paper Towns: This has to be one of my favorite books ever! It's funny, makes you think, and involves a road trip... That's all I need.

Wicked Lovely series: I love the word the author's created. Plus the characters are either dark and sexy or bright and beautiful. I would love to see this series on the big screen!

Vampire Academy: I want a real life Rose, Adrian, and Dimitri (yum!). That is all.

Gone series: OK. I've only finished the first one, but it has a movie feel to it already. It's an epic type series.

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms: I want to see what the characters would really look like! This would be a  beautiful story to watch.

Allison Hewitt is Trapped: I think this would be an awesome zombie movie! Especially because the story wasn't just about being scary. Plus, I want to see Allison with her sharp tongue and sharp axe battle zombies in a movie theater!

Nightshade: Ren...

Wither: This book played like a movie in my head the whole time I was reading it. It looked amazing in my head and I think it'd be amazing as a real movie.

Darkness Becomes Her: The main character was badass, and the greek mythology was awesome!

Please Ignore Vera Dietz: I think this would be hard to pull off, but it would be so good if the right people created the movie.

The only books I expected this week were City of Fallen Angels and Lover Unleashed, so it was pretty exciting to get everything else. It's funny how the two books I bought are the ones I want to wait a while to read. I really want to read City of Fallen Angels and Lover Unleashed, but I don't want to consume it in a few hours and then spend a whole year waiting for the next one.... Actually I'll probably start them next week. :)

Looking Foward to...

Description: A thrilling tale of adventure, romance, and one girl's unyielding courage through the darkest of nightmares.
Epidemics, floods, droughts--for sixteen-year-old Lucy, the end of the world came and went, taking 99% of the population with it. As the weather continues to rage out of control, and Sweepers clean the streets of plague victims, Lucy survives alone in the wilds of Central Park. But when she's rescued from a pack of hunting dogs by a mysterious boy named Aidan, she reluctantly realizes she can't continue on her own. She joins his band of survivors, yet, a new danger awaits her: the Sweepers are looking for her. There's something special about Lucy, and they will stop at nothing to have her.

Top Ten Tuesday: Book Covers I wish I could redesign

Reasons I want to change them: They're either cheesy (Hex Hall, Demon Glass, Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side), bland (Blue Bloods), not as good as other versions of the cover (Eon), twilight themed (Romeo & Juliet, Pride & Prejudice,Wuthering Heights), look more adult than YA (Overprotected), hurts my eyes (Linger and Forever), or are just wrong (Unwind).
