Only a few more days to get your free copy of Wings! Check out the link above if you haven't picked it up yet.
I read Wings about a year ago. I'm having a blast re-reading the book and am enjoying it just as much as I did the first time. I hope you are too!
Here are a few questions that I thought about while I was reading:
1. Wings has its share of angst and drama, but on the whole it is not as dark or edgy as many YA paranormal books. Do you like your books darker or more innocent?
I think I prefer dark on the whole, but the occasional sweet book is refreshing.
2. Laurel has always preferred eating fruit, vegetables, and sugar - no fat or processed foods. What are your favorite fruits and vegetables?
I love blueberries and apples (especially Honeycrisp, a Minnesota creation). I'm a big vegetable person. I especially like spinach and broccoli.
3. Aprilynne's faeries are actually plants. It's a unique twist on faerie mythology. Do you prefer books that stick to traditional legends about paranormal creatures (e.g. vampires, zombies)
I love when authors take create original creatures. I think making faeries plants is ingenious. They are known for being in touch with nature - making them actually part of nature is a fascinating choice.
4. As a plant, Laurel breathes in carbon dioxide and breathes out oxygen. She can also hold her breath longer than humans. She held her breath for 3 and a half minutes and only quit because she was a little uncomfortable and bored. How long can you hold your breath?
I made it 50 seconds. I should do breath-holding training.
