Smokeless Fire Blog Tour: Ari Interview + Giveaway!

Hello Ari, it’s a pleasure to have you here today. I have to say I'm every excited to have you here, you are indeed my first girl I have interviewed for my blog! It’s refreshing to be able to sit down with another lovely lady and chat!

So lets get down to business!!!

Tara: Ari, tell me, what was it like having a boy as a best friend?
Ari: Before everything fell apart for Charlie, it was great. Guys see the world a little differently and I loved his perspective on life. On the downside, having a boy as a best friend can be complicated. As we got older our feelings for each other changed and things got a little… messy…

Tara: Describe your perfect day. Who would be there? Where would you go? What would you do?
Ari: My perfect day? Honestly, there are so many people coming in and out of my life and all of them seem to want something… so I guess my perfect day would be somewhere quiet away from them all. I’d take some diet coke and some pizza with me and hope that Jai decides to spend the day with me in my ‘solitude’.

Tara: What is something we didn’t get to learn about you from the books?
Ari: I’m scared of turtles. No joke. Seriously. Why do they move so slowly? Is it because they’re planning something so masterful and shocking that it’s taking them all this time? These are little creatures with wise faces born with actual body armor! Evil geniuses planning the apocalypse…. I’m telling ya…

Tara: Tell me about when you met Charlie? What was the first thought in your head?
Ari: That kid stole my ball and I want it back.

Tara: Tell me something about Charlie that we don’t learn in the book.
Ari: His favorite movie is Aladdin. He tells everyone it’s Goodfellas but it’s Aladdin.

Tara: Tell me about when you met Jai? What was the first thought in your head?
Ari: That I didn’t trust him. Also, perhaps, that he was quite possibly the best-looking guy I’d ever seen.

Tara: Tell me something about Jai that we don’t learn in the book.
Ari: I’m still learning all there is to know about Jai. He doesn’t give anything away easily.

Tara: If you could another wish, no questions or tricks, what would it be and why?
Ari: To not be The Seal.

Lightening Round:
Red Vines or Twizlers? Twizlers
Sweet or salty? Both
CakePop or Cupcake? Cupcake
Coke or Pepsi? Coke

Tara: I want to thank you so much for sitting and chatting with me. any last words you want to say to all the Tater Tots out there?
Ari: Well, thanks for having me, Tara! And yeah, Tater Tots… be careful what you wish for.
