There will also be this very amazing International giveaway at the end of the post :D Best of luck. <3 You can see the full tour schedule here.

Fill in the Blanks with Kristen Simmons.

1. The one thing I would not be able to live without is caffeine. And my family. Not in that order. Ha.

2. The song I listen to the most on repeat is Let it Go. (I’ve got a little guy, so…)

3. The food I love to eat the most while writing and reading is cupcakes. This is also my favorite snack for when I’m not reading and writing.

4. The TV-show I love the most is called Sherlock Holmes from the BBC! I love Benadict!

5. My favorite character to write about in The Glass Arrow was Kiran. He was so secretive challenging because of his inability to speak. I love him.

6. The book I love the most of all the books I have read is …omg so hard…I love The Raven Boys books so much right now. They’re ammmmmmmazzzzing.

7. If I could live anywhere in the world, I would choose a cabin in the mountains. Somewhere where it’s snowy and I can wrap up in a blanket and drink hot chocolate. And hopefully not get eaten by a bear.

8. Out of all the books I have written, my favorite character of them all is probably Kiran, but I love Aya so much, and of course, there’s Chase…I will always love Chase!  

Thanks so much for having me, Carina!

Huuugs. <3 Thank you so so much for answering all my questions Kristen. <3 I love them :D
You are amazing. And I adore your answers. I cannot wait to read more books by you. <3
Yay for loving Kiran the most. <3 I adored reading about him so much :D He's all kinds of awesome.
And yesss. The Raven Boys. <3 Sigh. Those books are amazing. One word for them: GANSEY.

The Handmaid’s Tale meets Blood Red Road in Glass Arrow, the story of Aya, who lives with a small group of women on the run from the men who hunt them, men who want to auction off breeding rights to the highest bidder.

In a world where females are scarce and are hunted, then bought and sold at market for their breeding rights, 15-year old Aya has learned how to hide. With a ragtag bunch of other women and girls, she has successfully avoided capture and eked out a nomadic but free existence in the mountains. But when Aya’s luck runs out and she’s caught by a group of businessmen on a hunting expedition, fighting to survive takes on a whole new meaning. 

Kristen Simmons is the author of the ARTICLE 5 series and THE GLASS ARROW (Tor Teen). She loves her family, Jazzercise, and chocolate cupcakes. She currently lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.

  12. I stumbled upon your fantastic blog during "The Glass Arrow Blog Tour," and I'm delighted to have found such engaging content! Your post about filling in the blanks was both insightful and entertaining.

    Speaking of filling in the blanks, when it comes to finding reliable contractors near me, it can sometimes feel like navigating a maze.

    Keep up the excellent work, and thank you for the opportunity to engage with your content!
