This or That With Sam from My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick

I'd like to welcome Sam, the main character in My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick, to the blog today to share some of her preferences with us by playing a little This or That:

Grass is greener: this side or that side?
Literally or metaphorically? Our grass is greener than the Garretts, but my mom uses these scary chemicals to make sure it is, so….

Quiet or Loud?
Quiet peaceful, or quiet ominous? Loud, happy and celebrating or yelling? It’s strange how both can be good or bad.

Neat or Messy?
I’m pretty neat. Maybe a little compulsive about it? Jase teases me, but I hate not being able to find things.

Romeo or Juliet?
Juliet, Romeo was wayyy too impulsive and sort of a drama-fest.

Books or Movies?
Books. I like to picture the characters in my mind.

Fast or Slow?
Slow. From what I’ve seen, the bad things happen fast and the good things take a while

Standing out or Blending in?
I usually have been one to blend in, but I’m getting more comfortable with standing out.

New or Vintage?
I like the way vintage looks on other people, but whenever I try it just looks weird. We were talking clothes, right? Or cars? Because if it was cars, then vintage all the way.

Action or Adventure?

Truth or Dare?
Truth can be pretty daring .

Fantasy or Reality?
I used to like fantasy, but now reality is better.

Numbness or Pain?
Pain. Numbness never works for long.

Spectator or Participant?
Oh, that one is easy. Participant.

Eyes open or Eyes closed?
Open. Or is this a kissing question? In which case…I’m embarrassed.

Reeds or Garretts?
I’m a Reed who loves a Garrett.

Thanks to Samantha for stopping by so that we could get to know her a little better!

  1. "Juliet, Romeo was wayyy too impulsive and sort of a drama-fest."
    TRUE! lol

    "Books or Movies?
    Books. I like to picture the characters in my mind."

    Love this girl already. :D

  2. I adored Sam...almost as much as I swooned over Jase! :P I haven't read many contemps (something I'm rectifying this year) but this one will remain at the top of my favorites.
