Lost In Time: Interview with Melissa de la Cruz (+Giveaway)


If you are like me, I loose interest in a series if it goes on for more than 4 books. BUT, there is one series that I have stuck with through the years, the Blue Bloods novels. I'm not a huge paranormal fan, but there is something about these books that I love. The voices are real, the drama and romance is exciting, and the books are a breeze to get through. Pure entertainment! 

I have been a fan of Melissa de la Cruz for a long time and last year when she was at the Austin Teen Book Festival, I was a lucky duck to be the moderator at her panel. When I saw she was coming to Dallas, I made my way up and drug a few friends with me. Stacey at Girls in the Stacks and I did a fun interview with Mel in which we quiz her about her books and she dishes on Wolf Pact, the new BB spin-off series - yay! 

So, take a listen:


I have to say, I was pretty impressed with Melissa's memory! I thought Stacey and I could trick on a few, but she knew her stuff. Thank you, Mel!

  1. I haven't read any Blue Bloods novels yet (I know, I should...) They fly off the shelves at my library. I'm going to have to get to them someday. Looks like you had a lot of fun.

  2. I've read all of the books in the series so far except for this one and the novella Bloody Valentine. Sometimes I get frustrated with the series but overall I've enjoyed it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. I assumed Mimi was a small girl so it really surprised me when Melissa de la Cruz said she that Mimi had size 11 feet. I thought it was really funny that Melissa also forgot about the drinks that Schuyler and Cordelia order and where they had them.

  4. I had know idea she came to Dallas or I would of tried to go. Although every time I try to go to a author something bad happens, broken foot, duaghter gets appendicitis...

    maybe it's a good thing I didn't know!

  19. They were so funny - it must be a little nerve wracking to know you are being recorded and people are going to listen to you (part of the reason voicemails suck so bad!)
    No shopping at walmart!!

  20. I love this series! I have read all of them except for this one. As the story goes on, I love how the pressure keeps buliding and buliding. My favorite character is Schuyler because she is kickass and she has my name! That does happen much.
