Twinepathy Blog Tour

Hello Readers! 

Today I have a special guest, the author C.B.Cook  to celebrate the release of her new book, Twinepathy

Albany York has a secret.

Albany and her twin sister, Brooklyn, have spent years successfully hiding their telepathic connection. But when a girl falls unconscious at their doorstep, the girls learn that they might not be the only people in the world with extraordinary powers and that a memory thief is on the loose. As the twins try to help the girl find her memories, they discover that the superhero world might be bigger—and more dangerous—than they ever imagined.

C.B. Cook is just a girl trying to find out where her King is guiding her, while writing the stories of the people she creates, the worlds she wants to live in, and the adventures she dreams about. Also known as a mysterious creature called an "author". She's a Christian and a home school graduate dedicated to changing others’ lives through the power of the written word.

You can find C.B. at her blog, The World of the Writer
And now for an interview with the author herself! 

1. When did you start to write? 
I started to write when I was in fourth or fifth grade. My first story that was more than a few pages was actually a horse story that was very cheesy and will probably not see the light of day.

2. What is your favourite part of the writing process? 
Definitely exploring the characters. I love to see how their pasts and their current situations affects their personalities, and it's always intriguing when you factor in superpowers to the mix. 

3. What is your favourite genre? 
While I'm new to the superhero genre, both reading and writing, I have to say it's a new favorite of mine. But before I found that, I'd have to say my favorite genre was spy stories or mystery. Both of those are ones that I love to read!

4. Who is your favourite character to write? 
This is a hard question! I have to say, I really enjoy writing about Jen. She's a really complex character, and her power's really intriguing.

5. Tell me about a tea party with ten characters (yours or other peoples). Ohhhh! This is one of the best questions ever!!!! Okay, let's see... I would invite Blaze and Maddie from Twinepathy, for sure. Westley from The Princess Bride would be invited, and so would Thorne from The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer (certainly one of my favorite characters ever). Then I'd invite Aragorn and Sam from The Lord of the Rings, and also Sherlock Holmes for sure. And then some Brandon Sanderson charries: David from Steelheart and Kelsier from Mistborn. And, finally, I'd bring along Jen (from Twinepathy) for some sanity.

And how it would all go down? After everyone arrived (with Thorne fashionably late), I'd serve the tea and tea cake cookies and such, with extra for Sam, of course, since hobbits have such big appetites. Of course, I'd bring donuts for Blaze. I'm sure he and Thorne would get into a snark war, with David throwing in some terrible metaphors about pandas or something, with Sherlock Holmes on the side making snide observations until they gang up on him. Westley and Aragorn might get into a sword fight, which I would definitely encourage (I'd just want to see it!), and I can imagine Maddie throwing something at Blaze with her powers and Kelsier asking her if she's a Misting. And then the two of them would probably start messing with the others by moving their drinks or stealing their food. And the whole time, Jen would just be smirking and commenting on the scene to me.

I'd just be laughing my head off in a corner. :D

Thanks so much for these great questions, Jemma!!! I really enjoyed answering them, especially the last one. :D

Thank you C.B!

Bookish Book Lover Tag


Hello dear readers!  
Recently I was tagged by the fantastic Blue at To be a Shennachie for the Bookish Book Lover Tag. Thank you!

1) What Book Are You Currently Reading?
  I am currently reading Sourcery by Terry Pratchett. A book about a hopeless wizard called Rincewind. It's not my favourite so far, but it might improve.
  I'm also reading the Ghostfaces by John Flanagan, but I'm not really enjoying it

2) What’s The Last Book You Finished?
  The most recent book I finished would be The Woman Who Died a Lot by Jasper Fforde. 
It was very cleverly done if a touch confusing at times. 

3) Favorite Book You Read This Year?
  *Sweating* I don't know how to choose! A Tale of Two Cities maybe?  My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry? Or maybe one of the two Jackaby books? I simply can't decide!

4) What Genre Have You Read Most This Year?
  Probably either Fantasy or Mystery. I'm not entirely sure.

5) What Genre Have You Read Least This Year?
   Non-Fiction. I only read one, Wartime Princess.

6) What Genre Do You Want To Read More Of?
   Mystery :) . Even though I've read a lot, I'd still like to read more.

7) How Many Books Have You Read This Year, And What’s Your Goal?
  I've read eighty-one books this year, not counting re-reads. Altogether I've probably read around one hundred and twenty. I plan to read one hundred and fifty new books this year.

8) What’s The Last Book You Bought?
  Stars Above , a collection of short stories by Marissa Meyer. It's set in the Lunar Chronicles universe. Some stories were great, others a bit repetitive.

9) What Book Are You Saving Up To Buy Next?
  I'm not actually saving to buy anything at the moment. I have some Amazon credit burning a hole in my pocket and I'm thinking of a book to buy. I might get the first book in the Wingfeather Saga. It looks rather amusing and I've been meaning to get it for a while.

10) How Many Books Did You Check Out Last Library Visit?
   Three; Roald Dhal's Dirty Beasts, Sourcery and Moving Pictures.

11) What’s A Book You Can’t Wait To Read?
  Five Magic Spindles (so soon!), and Ghostly Echoes (not soon enough :( ). 

12) What’s A Series You’d Recommend to Everyone?
  The Chronicles of Narnia, The Tales of Goldstone Wood and Artemis Fowl. 
  (I don't know if The Lord of the Rings counts, but I recommend that to!)

13) Who’s An Author You’re Hoping Writes More?
  A E Stengl and K. M. Shea. And myself, but I stubbornly refuse to write. Silly me. 

14) A Few Books Your Heart Adores?
  The Tale of Desperaux, and the Chronicles of Narnia. (I have so many favourite books that I'm taking this question to mean sweet books that I love)

15) What Series’ Coming Conclusion Makes You Sad?
  The Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. Luckily I still have a couple left to read. There's another one to but I simply can't seem to remember it. 

16) What Books Are On Your Wish-List?
  I believe the list is around a hundred books, but featuring majorly are those of question eleven and anything by A E Stengl. 

And now we come to a close and I must tag some others. I will tag Alison, and as I am not entirely sure who else is reading, I invite you to tag you self and tell me in the comments.

The rules are: 
Use the banner,  answer the questions, use lots of book covers, tag your bookish friends!

Thanks for reading! And thanks again to Blue
