Breathless Reads Interview Week: Jessica Khoury, Author of ORIGIN

Welcome to the Breathless Reads Interview Week! Each day this week, I'm posting a new interview from one of the five Fall 2012 Breathless Reads Authors. Comment on each interview, and you can win an ARC. Comment on all five interviews, and you're entered to win a box set of all the books! Keep reading for more details on the contest and more ways to win!

Today, we're celebrating Jessica Khoury, author of ORIGIN! ORIGIN is about jungles and science, doing what's right, and making sacrifices to do it. Jessica has one of the best Pinterests around (and like me, she's totally into social media!), plus she has amazing red hair that I'm totally envious of. PS HEY HEY HEY you totally need to check out the ORIGIN OLYMPICS going on right now! 

Cyberstalk Jessica!
Now for the Interview! Because there's five books in the 2012 Breathless Reads line-up, I've got five questions for the authors.

1. Please describe your book in five words: 
Girl. Jungle. Boy. Danger. Love.

2. Please describe your main character in five words: 
Smart. Immortal. Lonely. Curious. Stubborn.

3. Now the tough one! Describe yourself in five words: 
Quick. Sarcastic. Impulsive. Ginger. Sleepy.

4. Can you give us a hint about what makes your book “breathless?” 
My favorite scene is when cute shirtless Eio swims through bioluminescent water and climbs a waterfall to pick a flower to cheer up Pia. It’s very sweet and steamy. =)

5. What are five other books that have left you breathless? 
  • Tomorrow When the War Began by John Marsden
  • Across the Universe by Beth Revis [no I’m not brownnosing, Beth—it really did!] Aw, thank you! :)
  • Legend by Marie Lu
  • The Warrior’s Apprentice by Lois McMaster Bujold 
  • Nation by Terry Pratchett
And now for the contest!!
To enter, just comment to this interview and let Jessica know how much you want to read her book. Please also fill out this Rafflecopter so I can better keep track of entries. You'll be entered for a chance to win a SIGNED copy of ORIGIN (in ARC form). Stick around all week and comment on all the interviews, and you'll be entered to win a box set of all five Breathless Reads books!
