The Childe Blog Tour: This or That with Cat Colvin



 I must say I was quiet eager to get invloved in the  blog tour for The Childe, Id heard great things about the book and it didn't dissapoint ! I will have my review up on the 31st so please feel free to stop by and check it out ! But for today Id like to Introduce you to Cat Colvin.

Today I have some This and That questions so we can get to Know Cat a little bit better but before that heres the book cover for The Childe and the excerpt ! Please also find after the This or That questions the blog tour schedule !



***

Goodreads description:
Cat Colvin
Average Teenager?
Or Something Else Entirely?
Cat Colvin is pretty much your typical run-of-the-mill teenager. Sure, she’s taller than most girls, has a mane of fiery red hair that’s impossible to tame, is left-handed, and her eyes are two different colors, but that’s where the differences end . . . unless you include the minor detail of her slow transformation into a Childe.

High school can definitely be challenging, and for Cat it’s no different. This is especially true when she’s faced with the daunting task of trying to hide her budding Childe traits as they begin to reveal themselves at the most inopportune times. To make matters worse, her family is oddly dead set against Ryan, the boy she grows to like. But everyone has their secrets: is Ryan really what he seems to be, and what is Cat’s family not telling her?

The Childe is the first book in this coming-of-age fantasy series which follows Cat’s life through the twists and turns toward finding out whom and what she really is. Come and take the plunge with Cat into a world filled with mystery, biting humor, and the paranormal.





This Or That: Cat Colvin

Vampire or werewolf?

Vampire of course! So love Robert Craven’s novels, movies, and Bartholomew Drake is such a hottie vampire.

Pink or Fuschia?

I’m more of a yellow lover, but if I had to pick I’d pick light pink because it’s the color of my favorite bath robe. Plus that pink goes great with my hair color.

Cotton candy or hot dogs?

Hot dogs with ketchup only. Cotton candy is okay in small doses, but it’s way too sweet.

.

Math or English?      

Soooo easy, English of course. First of all I don’t like my math teacher Mr. Creepy Crawley, and if I enjoyed math then I wouldn’t need a math tutor, would I?

Jumper or Hoodie?     

Definitely a hoodie. I’ve got a closet full of them and wear them all the time. Astoria doesn’t get very hot, even during the summer, so a hoodie is a must!

Hair up or down?    

Down please. I could never get this heavy mess of curls to stay up?

Cats or dogs?  

I like both but I love cats more.  Jewels, the cat that visits me, is so intelligent. She seems to know when I need her and I love it when she comes to visit.

Paperback or E-book? 

I so love my paperback books. I need to hold the book in my hand and turn the pages. I know it’s not the norm for people my age, but I’m already different in so many ways, why change now?

Fiction or reality?  

Fiction. I love getting caught up in the fantasy world that Robert Craven writes. He actually makes you believe that there really are vampires and werewolves and they’re not just myths.

Dark or light?   

Light, because it rains a lot in Astoria so we don’t see much sunshine. I only like the dark when there’s a full moon, no clouds, and my world is lit up wonderfully.

Night or day?     

Day, because I get to spend time with my friends. Nighttime is okay too, because when it’s not raining I sit on my balcony and watch the stars in the night sky.

Coke or Pepsi?  

Coke, Pepsi’s way too sweet.

Lollies or chocolate?  

Chocolate, especially Cadbury’s. My uncle Aldon brings me ‘sweets’, or candy as we call it here, all the time when he goes to the England.

Walk or ride? 

I like to ride, especially now that I’ve got my license and don’t have to be chauffeured around by Taylor or my parents.

Dance or spectator?  

Dance. Recently I’ve grown to love slow dancing with a certain someone.

Flying or driving?   

Driving, especially in my awesome Jeep, way cool.

Imagination or truth?

I love getting lost in my imagination. Truth is good an all, but life would be boring without imagination.

Glitter or plain?   

Plain, I’m already different as it is, I don’t need to add to it.  Come on, I’ve got fiery, unruly red hair, I’m left-handed, pale as a vampire, and I have two different colored eyes. I mean really, glitter would just make me stand out more.

Heels or joggers?   

Joggers. I forgot one other item for the last this or that question. I’m freakin’ tall too. I’m taller than most girls my age and a good number of guys too.

Shy or outgoing? 

I guess I’m outgoing. I tend to speak my mind, not as well as my friend Amanda though, but not as shy as poor Elle.

Straight or curls?

Straight hair PLEASE. Look at this curly mess on my head. So envious of Julie, Amanda, and Elle with their straight hair.

Mexican or Italian ( food )?  

We don’t have a Mexican restaurant in town, but my mom makes a mean taco. I also like her lasagna too though, oh and there’s always pizza. So I guess I like Italian a touch more then.

Pizza or pasta?

Pizza! It’s the official food of our movie nights. I mean who doesn’t like a gooey, cheesy slice of heaven.

Fast or slow? 

Hmmmmm, slow when driving my Jeep, hey my mom and dad might see this. Fast is how I like the day at school to go, especially Mr. Crawley’s class. He’s a MONSTER in a nerd disguise.

Desktop or laptop?  

Laptop. I like to be mobile and not chained to the desk in my room.

Ipod or cd player?  

My Ipod. I’ve got ALL my songs on there and no now there’s no need to carry around a clunky cd player.

Funk or classic? 

Funk.  My old school, Madison prep, played classical music all the time and though I like it, it got old.

Beetle or Ferrari?  

My Jeep. But if I had to choose between a Ferrari or a Beetle, it would be the Beetle. I love those little cars and they are so cute.
