Boundless by Cynthia Hand Blog Tour

Welcome to our stop on the Boundless blog tour!!!  We have got an amazing treat for you!!! But first, you need to go get some tissues and be prepared for tears and your heart to melt into a puddle of goo!!! Our little treat is an interview with TUCKER AVERY!!! And oh my word friends, he is such a sweetheart, and I feel like I have fallen in love with him all over again!!!  Without any futher gushing, here is our interview with The Tucker Avery!

Hi Tucker! We are so glad you are here with us today! You are a huge favorite on our Blog and are a regular  in our YA Crush Tournaments!  We have a lot of Team Tucker fans out there.
Uh, thanks?

First off, we want to know what your plans are for this next year? 
I'm going to help out at the Lazy God, which is my family's ranch. My dad hurt his knee last spring and things are tight, so I'm going to hang around and pitch in. Figure out what I'm going to do. I'm also really looking forward to the rodeo circuit this year. Thought I might even try my hand at some bull riding.

What do you think about Clara going to Italy for the summer? (We think you would have fun in Italy too, nudge nudge.) 
Right, me in Italy. Well, I do like pizza. I think it will be good for Car-- Clara. Help her get away, clear her head for a bit. Relax, maybe, before she heads off to school. I wish she could spend a little while back here, though, before she goes. We could go fishing or something.
Awww, that is so sweet!  We hope she spends some time in Jackson Hole too before she goes to college.  

What was going through your mind when you found out that Clara was part angel?
 I was in this weird state of disbelief. I mean, I believe in God and all, but I hadn't given a lot of thought to the idea of angels. And, like no thought to the idea of part-angels. I mean, I didn't even know there could be such a thing. It was unreal, like I'd stepped into a movie or a book or something.These things don't happen to regular people in the real world. But there she was, all glowing and beautiful and glorious (see what I did there?) and seeing's believing, I guess. And when I thought about it later, it made sense. Clara's always seemed to me to be something more than a normal girl. You should have seen her ski, that first time. It wasn't natural, to be that good at something right off like that.
(holy cowboys batman! I don't know about you guys, but I am meltiing!!! Melting I say!)

We know that you loved your truck Bluebell dearly (may she rest in peace), but here in Texas, the best ice cream will always be Blue Bell.  What's your favorite kind of ice cream? 
Don't remind me about Bluebell. I loved that truck. As far as ice cream goes, I'm a fan of plain old strawberry. The kind with chunks of strawberry in it. My mom makes some amazing homemade strawberry ice cream.

This question is from several of our followers.  They want to know what you were thinking when you kissed Clara in front of the waterfall? (**Cue the Tissues**)
 (clears throat). Well. I guess I was thinking that I wanted to kiss her before I wouldn't get to kiss her anymore. Clara has a whole big life to lead. And I was lucky to be part of that, for a while. But I guess the right thing to do would be to move on, for both of us. I didn't want to always be standing in the way of her destiny. Her dreams. She'd resent me for that, eventually. So I had to let her go. Which was hard. But you know what they say about loving something. You've got to let it go.
Ghaaaaaaaa!!!! He's so stinkin' sweet!!!

One last question, from the male prospective, who would you nominate to be in our YA Crush Tournament? 
Uh. I don't really read YA, but Clara was always going on about some guy named Daniel or Ren or somebody.
You're not alone Clara!

Okay, now we're done with grilling you. You can relax now! We just have a few this or thats.

Peas or Carrots  (showing dimples). Carrots.
Regular Oreos or Double Stuffed. Regular, with milk.
Red hair or Blonde. Red.
And, True or False
All is fair in love and war. False. And you can pass that on to Prescott. Love isn't a strategy. It's not a game. Although sometimes, I guess, you lose.

Wow!!! I'm still just speechless about this interview!  I cannot get over how sweet that boy is!  I am dying to read this book, and honestly before this interview, I was really torn between Tucker and Christian.  But now, I think I am TEAM TUCKER ALL THE WAY!!!  Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Cynthia Hand to letting us interview Tucker!  You are a stinkin' rockstar!

Boundless (Unearthly, #3)

The past few years have held more surprises than part-angel Clara Gardner could ever have anticipated. Yet from the dizzying highs of first love, to the agonizing low of losing someone close to her, the one thing she can no longer deny is that she was never meant to live a normal life.

Since discovering the special role she plays among the other angel-bloods, Clara has been determined to protect Tucker Avery from the evil that follows her . . . even if it means breaking both their hearts. Leaving town seems like the best option, so she’s headed back to California - and so is Christian Prescott, the irresistible boy from the vision that started her on this journey in the first place.

As Clara makes her way in a world that is frighteningly new, she discovers that the fallen angel who attacked her is watching her every move. And he’s not the only one. . . . With the battle against the Black Wings looming, Clara knows she must finally fulfil her destiny. But it won’t come without sacrifices and betrayal.

In the riveting finale of the Unearthly series, Clara must decide her fate once and for all.
