Diana Peterfreund & Rampant

Killer unicorns? Yes please. Diana Peterfreund is the author of two AWESOME killer unicorn books Rampant and Ascendant (which was one of my favorite books last year!). I switched things up a little with her, and decided to do a "This or That" interview. If you don't know what that is, you'll figure out soon enough.

My review of:
Find Diana:

Birthdays or Christmas?

Christmas, but mainly because my birthday is a holiday here (in DC) and that makes it a pain if I want to throw a party. Also, I've finally reached an age where getting older is... not so much fun.

Book Birthdays or Birth-Birthdays?

Birth-birthdays. Book birthdays are too often anticlimactic.

Milk or White Chocolate?

Dark chocolate! Did you know white chocolate isn't even chocolate?
(Enna Isilee: DON'T SAY THAT! I adore white chocolate. I think it's chocolate. It's just really misunderstood chocolate.)

Audiobook or television show?

Television show. I very rarely listen to audio books, but I adore television!

Necklace or Bracelet?

Necklace. Aside from my wedding ring, it's the only kind of jewelry I wear.

Zombies or Werewolves? (No, you can’t choose unicorns *wink*)

Darn. Okay.... well, for what purpose? Deep conversation, I think werewolves. Pure destruction? Zombies.

Flats or heels?

Flats. I like the look of heels, but I wear flats.

Shorts or Skirts?

Skirts! I adore skirts. I pretty much only wear shorts when hiking or gardening. Also: sundresses.

This or That?

This is a much more positive word than that, don't you think?

Asparagus or horseradish?

Asparagus. I only like horseradish in cocktail sauce, but grilled asparagus with sea salt is fantastic. I could eat it every day.

Tee hee. That was fun. And now, Diana's mad-lib.
So we gave her the tour, and as Cory snagged nonstop, I watched my mother undulate behind the bondage of Clothilde and the karkadann that may or may not be carbohydrate. I watched her kangaroo the fungus labeled Llwelyn on the island of Flimsy Kills in the chapter house, pointing out which minarets were from our direct line and which were from other branches. Cory ate it up.
*mad-lib idea was inspired by Alysa at Everead!

Tee hee. I'm so glad she used undulate as one of her verbs. Thanks, Diana!

Today's host is the awesome Logan of Logan E. Turner! She's giving away a hardcover copy of Rampant as part of the bash, but you have to head over to her blog to enter! So get going!

  1. Such a lovely interview! I read Rampant and loved it! I have Ascendant on my shelf ... gotta get to reading that soon!

  2. Fun interview! Loved the mad libs. Great news of undulate and minaret.

  3. For some reason spell check switched 'use' to 'news'.

  4. White chocolate isn't really chocolate? Now that explains a lot.

  5. Great interview! I agree, white chocolate isn't chocolate and dark chocolate is better than milk.lol I've been wanting to read Rampant. Thanks for the chance to win!

  6. Wow, we had no idea she was so young! Thanks for the giveaway. :)

  7. Great interview! I love that this book is about unicorns. I haven't read a book about one yet so really looking forward to this one! ^_^

  8. Thank you so much, Enna, for having me over today. The MadLibs is HILARIOUS. Happy Birthday!

    Jenna, yes, White chocolate isn't really chocolate. It's a type of confection that only contains cocoa butter, not cocoa itself. But it's still tasty. (I prefer dark, though.)

    Awww, We heart YA. Thanks for saying that. I don't know what inspired it, though -- the picture (which is sadly 2 years old now)?

  9. What a fun interview! I loved both of her books, so good!

    And now I'm craving milk chocolate. White chocolate, ugh. Dark chocolate, okay. But milk chocolate, YUM!

  10. This interview was great! So fun to read.

    I had been a little hesitant about buying Rampant/Ascendent, but this interview completely convinced me. Thank you Diana Peterfreund and thanks Enna Isilee!

  11. I am definitely a skirts and flats girl too.
    Fun interview!

  12. I LOVE white chocolate! That's ok that it's not really chocolate; I kinda figured as much. I just read the summary of rampant on goodreads.com, and I'll definitely be reading it soon! Sounds great!

  13. Killer unicorns are a fantastic idea! This book sounds cool. And I love the madlibs :)

  14. Loved the interview! And white chocolate can be good :)

  15. I'm impressed by both "undulate" and "minarets." Awesome madlib!

  16. Great interview! I loved her comment on this or that - so true.

  17. I'm with her on the dark chocolate and the flats. And the this or that question and answer cracked me up. Thanks!

  18. White chocolate is YUCK!
    Awesome interview(:


  19. I just got a copy of Ascendant from another blogger, which I was super excited about, but uh...I still need to read Rampant! lol

    Great interview!

  20. Great interview! I totally agree about book birthdays often being anticlimactic, and I agree, I'm not a fan of white chocolate at all.

  21. The interview made me smile and I think Diana has a personality very much like mine. (: Rampant has been on my booklist for a while, especially since it's about unicorns, and I have to admit that I'm a bit of a dork, and my room was all unicorns for years. The story sounds captivating, and I look forward to the romance between Astrid and her handsome art student. ;)

  22. I loved the questions! Great interview and thanks for the giveaway!

  23. I adore her answer for Zombies or Werewolves. Oh god, it is so true isn't it? Zombies just try to eat you, while werewolves could help you out.

  24. You know, it's about time I read a unicorn book. :) The author looks a little like the cover model also, am I right? Great interview! This or that is always fun.

  25. I squeeled when i saw her book for a giveaway. i ADORE Diana! LOVE her secret society books!

  26. Haha what a cute interview! Really looking forward to reading this book!

  27. Aw, such a cute interview! Diana sounds awesome! :) Who knew about the white chocolate thing...

  28. cute interview. I too would go with the asparagus. I love ti grilled.

  29. This book has been on my wishlist forever! Thanks for the giveaway!

  30. I want to say it's 123 on my reading list, which is too long. Oh well, i'll get to it eventually. I can't wait to read it though. :D

  31. Lol hahaha love the interview! I really want to read Rampant...heard so much about it!

  32. Rampant was such a great twist in the YA paranormal book section. Loved it. Great interview.

  33. What a fantastic interview, how fun. The book looks so interesting. :)

  34. I agree with dark chocolate being the best chocolate, and I would love to read her books
