Vote for Perry in the 2013 YA Crush Tourney

The YA Crush Tourney has started!  And Perry is in this first round, against Torin St. James from The Runes series.

Nikki from Fiction Freak is heading the charge for Perry’s side, and here are some of the qualities that she points out about our wonderful Peregrine:

His tattoos –

“He had tattoos, just like in the stories. Two patterned bands around each bicep. When he’d turned his back, she’d seen another design on his skin, some sort of hawk with wings spanning shoulder to shoulder.”

His personality –

Oh yeah. Passionate is definitely something you can call Perry.
Ah, but he’s not only passionate. He’s loyal and strong and supportive. He’ll fight for whatever he believes in and for his people and he’ll do whatever he can to help.

His sweetness and being romantic –

“In the afternoon, they stopped to eat on a rocky outcrop. Perry brushed a kiss on her cheek while she was chewing, and she learned that it was the loveliest thing to be kissed for no reason, even while chewing food. It brightened the woods, and the never sky, and everything.” 

“I miss you. I miss you. I miss you, I miss you. Be ready, because when I see you, I’ll never let you go again”

“Should we try this again?” he asked. Aria smiled. “The right way,” she said, and wove her fingers through his. “Together.”

bea-veronica-rossi-2013Here, she’s seen giving an interview for Epic Reads, however, I don’t believe that interview is available as of yet.  Will try to get that out to you as soon as it’s available.

What does she have to say about being at BEA?

In New York for BEA. I’ve seen so many amazing writers, bloggers, fans, editors, agents, publicists… Love being part of the book business!
