Thanks for stopping by the Verb Vixen stop of the Spellcaster music blog tour! My review of Spellcaster went up yesterday, so check the post just below this one to get my thoughts on this sequel by Cara Lynn Shultz!
In addition to our awesome interview with mean girl Kristin from the books, you can enter to win an exclusive Spellcaster iPod Nano!
Now for some insight in to Kristin from Spellbound and Spellcaster:
1. Kristin, you seem particularly concerned with Brendan despite his clear lack of interest. Why?
I’m positive that this is just a phase for Brendan. I’m the best thing around, so once he realizes that, he’ll come my way. Why wouldn’t he? He’s hot, I’m hot. He’s rich, I’m rich. What else is there, really? I mean, he totally needs a haircut, but I can look past the superficial to see that he’d look perfect with a proper haircut. Obviously, we’re a perfect match. Once he’s done making whatever statement he’s trying to make with his whole “I’m a loner” thing, he’ll come around.
2. Beyond your interest in Brendan, what motivates you to attack Emma?
First of all, you have no proof that I’ve done anything to Emma—anything that she didn’t deserve. But if you’re trying to get me to talk about what I don’t like about her, all you had to do was ask. It’s one of my favorite subjects. Here’s how I see Emma: She’s this random girl who just showed up out of nowhere, and thinks she’s just like, sooooo funny and sarcastic and clever when really, she’s just some loser with tacky shoes and big boobs and a rich aunt who paid her way into the school. Anthony had some kind of bug up his ass about her, even though he never admitted to me what it was. I don’t know what kind of mind games she played with him, but clearly she did. And then Brendan, out of nowhere, dates her? Who the hell is Emma to show up out of nowhere and get their attention? I was here first!!
3. What’s made you such an uber B*tch? Didn’t you watch Mean Girls like the rest of us?
I know what I want, I go after it, and I get it. And if someone gets in my way, well, tough for them. If that makes me a bitch, then I wear the title proudly. I really didn’t understand why everyone hated Regina George in that movie. If you ask me, they were all jealous.
4. Where do you want to go to college and what do you want to be when you grow up?
I don’t know if you realize this, but I was in commercials as a baby. I had the lead in the school play this year. I’ve got a lot of talent and I’m going to be a star. So I’m going to apply to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Or, I want to get on a reality show. There should be a Real Housewives show, but for fabulous high school students. I’d totally be the star of that. Or I want to be a Pussycat Doll when I grow up.
5. For someone so concerned with power, you let yourself be used and manipulated pretty easily in both Spellbound and Spellcaster. Any response?
I don’t see myself as being manipulated. An opportunity came up for me to get revenge on someone I hate. If it had worked out, I would have come out the winner. And if you ask me, I’m still the winner.
Here’s my theme song. I feel like I could have written this song. I mean, it so accurately describes everything I want in life, and everything I’m going to get. Pussycat Dolls, “When I Grow Up”
