Blog Tour: This or That with Blair from Cicada by Belle Whittington



  1. Sand Dollar or Shark Tooth:  “I think I’d prefer a sand dollar,” Blair answered, her voice low and thoughtful. 
  2. Deep Space or Ocean Deep:  “Definitely deep space.  Although, I’m not really sure why…” she twisted a tendril of her light brown hair around her finger and bit her lip. 
  3. Bar-B-Que or Fast Food:  “Bar-B-Que!  At my grandparents’ ranch!  There’s nothing better in the world than Grandpa’s brisket and Grandma’s banana pudding!” she giggled.  “You’ll have to come to the next one.  I’ll send you an email when we plan one,” Blair scribbled the interviewer’s email onto the palm of her left hand. 
  4. Cicadas or Mosquitoes: “Cicadas are the little lullaby bugs that sing me to sleep in the evenings,” Blair smiled.  “You know, there’s a parallel in the Cicada’s life cycle that can also symbolize change.  Or so my friend, Everett, tells me. Well, maybe he’s a little more than a friend.” 
  5. Cupcakes or Brownies:  “My mom makes the best cupcakes in the world at her bakery.  Have you been there?” Blair asked the interviewer.  “It’s called ‘Sprinkles’ and it’s the best place in Willis for bakery items.” 
  6. The Drive-In or Theater: “Definitely the drive-in with my friends!  We pile into the back of my brother’s truck and hang out until the place closes sometimes,” she said while checking her text messages on her cell phone. 
  7. Camping at the river or a day at the beach: “Camping at the river that runs along the back of the ranch.  We take the horses and ride at night.  Well, unless Everett is with us.  Then we take the four wheelers,” she laughs one of those laughs like people do when they have an inside joke. 
  8. Riding a horse or taking a walk: “Are you kidding?  I’d ride a horse any day anywhere!  Especially my horse, Daisy,” she holds her cell phone up and shows the interviewer a picture of Daisy. 
  9. Sunrise or Sunset: “Sunset…that’s when the work day is over and the fun begins!”  Blair giggles. 
  10. Ignorant is Bliss or The Hard Truth:  “The hard truth.  Grandpa says ‘the truth will set you free.’  So I hold with that,” Blair nods. 
  11. Lie by Omission or by admission:  “It’s best not to lie at all, but who am I kidding?  We all do it!”  She smiles.  “I’d say lie by omission would be my choice.” 
  12. Fantasy or Realty: “Reality,” she shrugs. 
  13. Movies or Books:  “There’s nothing better than a really good book!  I’m reading The Hunger Games right now, and I can totally relate to Katniss!”  Blair’s eyes widen as she laughs. 
  14. Big city or Small town:  “Small town.  Definitely,” she pulls her hair back into a ponytail and makes the “whew” sound when the interviewer tells her there’s just one more question. 
  15. Mall or Flea Market:  “Going to the mall with Everett is a blast!  He always gets the ice cream from the Marble Slab all over him,” she shakes her head and giggles.  “I can never figure out how he does it, either!”
