Book Chat with Michelle Hodkin

book chat with Michelle Hodkin

So last week, the infinitely wonderful author of the Mara Dyer trilogy visited Manila to see her fans. I recapped Michelle Hodkin’s awesome signing event here on the blog,  but what I couldn’t share (at least not yet at the time) was that I got to interview her personally. I had to fangirl to myself then but now I get to fangirl with you guys too!!! BECAUSE YES I GOT TO CHAT WITH MICHELLE HODKIN AND IT WAS AWESOME.

In this interview, Michelle talks about visiting Manila, her characters, scenes in the trilogy (she shares a deleted one!!!), and the romance between Mara and Noah! If you haven’t read the Evolution and Retribution, there will be spoilers at 5:00 to 7:50 so beware.

Without further ado, here’s my book chat with Michelle Hodkin:

Many thanks to Fullybooked for making this happen and of course, to Michelle, for chatting with me and being so lovely. And to my dear readers- if you watched this, THANK YOU! <3

    Aah, what a great interview! I watched the whole thing and it was so marvelous–even though I haven’t read past the first book in the trilogy, I still loved to hear Michelle Hodkin talk about her books. She just seems so relatable and easy to talk to, it’s wonderful! You asked some great questions, too, and it was fun to have a voice to put to your blog, haha. I’m so glad you had such an awesome opportunity to interview an author you admire, good for you and thanks so much for sharing it with us!

    Oh my goodness!! What a stellar experience! I am bookmarking this to watch after I read Retribution. I had so many review books last year I couldn’t get to it, and I swore I wasn’t going to get bogged down this year, but guess what? I already am! Ugh. I am definitely going to cut a path to read Retribution quickly, so I can watch this video.
