Each week you will find the following week's questions on each of our blogs. This enables you to prepare your post ahead of time and jump around to each participating blog to discuss those questions. There will be a linky provided each week on the host blogs for you to link up your blog so we can visit you!
Misty is providing one lucky participant with a signed copy of Cornerstone and an ebook of Keystone. Each week you enter into the linky you are entered for this prize. The Keystone tour is also running the month of September and this tour is filled with EPIC goodness, including some massive giveaway's! So be sure to check that out as well.
The first weeks questions, to go up September 5th are:
1.) Right away we learn a bit about the fact that Nalena has to buy massive amounts of paper for her mom and that her mother is a bit of a paper hoarder. What was your initial reaction to this? Do you think there might be more to her mothers paper obsession? What do you think it is that she's writing down, is she really just a crazy lady that has a compulsion to create characters and plot details?
2.) We meet Garrett. Okay, breathe for a moment... Now we meet him and we see him through Nali's eyes and she's very wary at first, despite his good looks (or because of it). But he seems so genuine, and he says he understands her mothers paper hoarding. And then he saves her from the crazy person in the woods. And then makes her hand and arm feel better. What are your thoughts about Garrett so far?
3.) We meet Cora and Nali describes her as a bit of a fair-weather friend. Only showing up when it's convenient and never really being a true friend. Have you ever had a fair-weather friend? How did it make you feel?
4.) Nali is teased and called The Waste at school because of her mothers paper hoarding. She's constantly made fun of and put down. Do you think you would be brave enough to stand up for yourself? And if you were to see someone being teased would you jump in and stand up for them?
5.) When Regina is picking on Nali in class she suddenly feels these rings go around her body and then seems to step outside of it. Later when she's attacked she seems to have a sort of super speed that helps her dodge blows. Do you have any idea what might be going on? If you could have any ability what ability what you choose?
