Meet The Author: Julie Eshbaugh, Ivory and Bone - Would You Rather + Giveaway

Hi Everyone, and welcome to the last day of Meet The Authors! I'll be doing a recap post tomorrow at this time, and announcing the winners for the first few giveaways, so do stay tuned!

For the last author, I have with me Julie Eshbaugh, author of Ivory and Bone and the upcoming sequel, Obsidian and Stars! I had the opportunity to be on the blog tour of Ivory and Bone last year and I LOVED it. You can read my review here!

I'm so thrilled that I got the chance to have Julie on the blog, so don't forget to say hi to her in the comments AND enter the WONDERFUL Giveaway she's hosting. 

It's such a pleasure to have you on the blog, Julie! I am SO EXCITED!
Would You Rather:

1. Spend the Day with Your Favourite Character or Your Favourite Author? 
I think I would rather spend the day with my favorite author, if it could be anyone living or dead haha. I would love to spend a day with Jane Austen!

2. Read one Book a Year and remember everything or read 100 Books In A Year are Remember Nothing? 
I think 100 books in a year and remember nothing, because I could just enjoy them all over again! I forget a lot of what I read, anyway. As long as I remember the story while I'm reading, it's all good!

3. Have Your Favourite Book Turned Into A TV Show Or A Movie?
 A movie, because none of my fave books are long enough to be made into a good series for TV.

4. Read The Last Chapter Of A Book First Or Watch The Movie? 
Watch the movie. There's always more in the book!

5. Have Unlimited Books For Free or Live Inside Your Favourite Book? 
Have unlimited books for free!

6. Spend A Day With Harry Potter or Newt Scamander? 
Definitely Harry Potter. That would be one of the best days of my life.

7. Meet Your Own Character In Person or Meet Your Favourite Fictional Character In Person? (not your own) 
I think I have to go with meet my own character in person. I feel like I know Kol so well, I would love to hang out with him in real life.

8. Read Only The First Page In A Book or Only The Last Page?
I think I would rather read only the first page, because I could make up the rest of the story in my own head. With only the last page, I would be completely lost!

9. Get Locked In A Bookstore or In A Library?
I think a library, because there would be all types of materials to explore. Also, my library has full sets of series, whereas the bookstore might only have the newest volume.

10. Read A Book With A Cliffhanger Ending or Read A Book With Your Favourite Character Dying at the end? 
I have to say cliffhanger ending! I hate when my favorite character dies, and I sometimes like the anticipation of a good cliffhanger!

Hunting, gathering, and keeping his family safe—that’s the life seventeen-year-old Kol knows. Then bold, enigmatic Mya arrives from the south with her family, and Kol is captivated. He wants her to like and trust him, but any hopes of impressing her are ruined when he makes a careless—and nearly grave—mistake. However, there’s something more to Mya’s cool disdain…a history wrought with loss that comes to light when another clan arrives. With them is Lo, an enemy from Mya’s past who Mya swears has ulterior motives.
As Kol gets to know Lo, tensions between Mya and Lo escalate until violence erupts. Faced with shattering losses, Kol is forced to question every person he’s trusted. One thing is for sure: this was a war that Mya or Lo—Kol doesn’t know which—had been planning all along.

Blurb Description:  In the sequel to Ivory and Bone—the prehistoric fantasy novel that New York Times bestselling author Amie Kaufman described as a “richly crafted world of life-and-death stakes”—the story shifts to Mya’s viewpoint as vengeful adversaries force her to flee the life she once knew.
After surviving the chaotic battle that erupted after Lo and the Bosha clan attacked, now Mya is looking ahead to her future with Kol. All the things that once felt so uncertain are finally falling into place. But the same night as Kol and Mya’s betrothal announcement, Mya’s brother Chev reveals his plan to marry his youngest sister Lees to his friend Morsk. The only way to avoid this terrible turn of events, Morsk informs Mya when he corners her later, is for Mya to take Lees’ place and marry him herself. 
Refusing to marry anyone other than her beloved, and in an effort to protect her sister, Mya runs away to a secret island with Lees. And though it seems like the safest place to hide until things back home blow over, Mya soon realizes she’s been followed. Lurking deep in the recesses of this dangerous place are rivals from Mya’s past whose thirst for revenge exceeds all reason.
With the lives of her loved ones on the line, Mya must make a move before the enemies of her past become the undoing of her future.
