Ever since I fell in love with Diana Peterfreund 's Secret Society Girl series last year, I've been hoping I'd get the chance to interview her here. Tomorrow marks the release of her new novel, Rampant , and let me tell you that you have not read a book like this before. You can read my review here , but all you really need to know is that it's a story about killer unicorns and the young women who hunt them. You want to read it now, don't you? Oh, yeah, and it's YA and the first in a series! To celebrate the release, Diana graciously answered a few of my most burning questions. As she is always a delight, I know you'll enjoy them as much as I did. First things first: When did the idea for Rampant first hit you and what (if anything) did you know right off the bat? In early 2005, just after selling Secret Society Girl , I had this dream of being chased by a very dangerous unicorn. I woke up and went to go look it up to see if I could figure out the meanin
Oh, I'm off to read it right now. I loved her New Moon in 15 minutes. I've never seen the movies (didn't really care for Twilight, the book), but these posts are entertaining!ReplyDelete
I actually have been looking forward to reading this for a while. Thank you for introducing me to the hilarity!ReplyDelete
I saw the movie. It was good...for what it was. But Jasper still really just bugs me. His hair has improved somewhat, but he always looks like he has a stick somewhere a stick shouldn't be. Edward was better this time, and the whole tent scene between him and Jacob was perfect. It's not often a movie adaptation gets something so close to my imagination, but that did it.
Thanks for sharing! They are hilarious.ReplyDelete
Have you seen Eclipse with cats by popsuede? You can see it over here. So hilarious! Let me click on your link of Eclipse in 15 minutes. I have a feeling I'm going to like it as well.ReplyDelete
I did watch the movie with two friends. I watched Twilight and New Moon with both of them and it has become a tradition now. We will finish watching the movies all together. They didn't read the books so they kept asking me during the movie, "Did that really happen in the book?"
Thanks for the link! I hadn't heard of this site, but it was hilarious!ReplyDelete
I've only seen the first Twilight movie, I'm just so sceptical to the others because I thought it sucked :( I will watch them one day though and then I will watch this clip :DReplyDelete
Brenda, they certainly are. I admire that amount of talent, I really do. A good parody is so hard to craft.ReplyDelete
Allie, Jasper's hair...*sigh* It appears to be unstoppable. And unflappable. And all sorts of other inappropriate hair uns. Agree on the tent scene. Also enjoyed the final Bella/Jacob kiss. ;)
elizabeth, my pleasure. hehe.
Chachic, lol. That's funny. It's true that the main enjoyment in watching these movies is the experience of watching it together with your friends. So you can laugh and talk and generally live it up.
Jen, oh man. Cleo is awesome. Definitely check out her HP parodies.
Ladybug, sounds like a plan. For what it's worth, the second two are quite different from the first. Not saying they're better. Just different. :)
That was so awesome! Thanks:)ReplyDelete
