Blog Tour: Cold Kiss - Amy Garvey - This or That List

Amy Garvey is here today with a This or That list courtesy of the Teen Book Scene blog tour for her book, Cold Kiss, which releases tomorrow. Thank you for being here today, Amy! You can follow along with the tour here, or by clicking through the banner. Enjoy! 
Musicals or Concerts? Ooh, tough one. I love a good musical, but I think I’d have to pick concerts. I’ve seen a lot of fantastic ones, and there’s nothing like it.

Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings? No fair! I love them both! But I’d have to pick Harry Potter, because while I love the Lord of the Rings movies and characters, I didn’t actually read the books. Plus, there’s Hermione and Luna and Hagrid!

Cats or Dogs? Another tough one! I’ve had both, and have two cats currently, but I think overall I am a little bit more of a dog person. If only the cats would come when I call. Or go for a walk!

Music or Solitude? Hard to say, because I don’t think they’re opposites, or an either/or. I love solitude, but I generally have music on. I think if I had to choose, though, it would be music, although if I never had a moment alone I’d probably get a little nutty.

Beach or Pool? Beach, definitely.

Spring or Fall? Fall! Sweaters and falling leaves and Halloween!

Firemen or Policemen? Both are total heroes, but I’ll say firemen because my grandfather was a full-time firefighter in the ‘40s and ‘50s, when it was even harder than it is today.

Sweet or Salty? Ooh, another hard one! I love both, but sweets win out. I love cake.

Pop Rocks or Nerds? Ick! Neither.

Historical or Fantasy? Historical!

Unicorn or Zombie? Zombies, of COURSE.

Hardcover or Paperback? Hmmm, hard to say. I wish I could own everything in hardcover, but paperbacks are more portable and convenient.

Sunrise or Sunset? Sunset. I am very definitely not a morning person.

Victorian or Gothic? Well, Gothic architecture and style was idealized during the Victorian period, so a lot of it overlaps. I can’t choose! I love both.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Dark Angel? No contest – Buffy. Always and forever Buffy.

Awesome list, Amy! I agree with you on almost all of these! Especially Buffy! =D 
Thank you for being here today!!! 

Amy Garvey can be found on her blog, and on twitter.


When her boyfriend, Danny, is killed in a car accident, Wren can’t imagine living without him. Wild with grief, she uses the untamed powers she’s inherited to bring him back. But the Danny who returns is just a shell of the boy she once loved.

Wren has spent four months keeping Danny hidden, while her life slowly unravels around her. Then Gabriel DeMarnes transfers to her school and somehow, inexplicably, he can sense her secret. Wren finds herself drawn to Gabriel, who is so much more alive than the ghost of the boy she loved. But Wren can’t turn her back on Danny or the choice she made for him—and she realizes she must find a way to make things right, even if it means breaking her own heart.

Amy Garvey’s transcendent teen debut is perfect for fans of Shiver and Beautiful Creatures. Wren’s unforgettable voice and story will stay with readers long after the last page is turned.

Oo Gothic and Victorian is hard! I love the Victorian period, but there's just something delicious about the Gothic atmosphere. Rebecca will forever rock my socks. Great post! Can't wait to read Cold Kiss -- it's up next on my TBR =)
