This or That with Iris from The Girl Is Murder & A Giveaway - Blog Tour

Today we have the chance to get to know Iris from The Girl Is Murder by Kathryn Miller Haines better. Keep in mind this book takes place in the 1940's so the questions are geared toward the time when Iris lived. 

Let's play This or That!

Root beer float or Egg cream?

Egg cream. It’s a New York staple and Iris is all New York.

Summer or Winter?

Summer. No school, no snow, no responsibilities.

Sherlock Holmes or Dick Tracy?

Dick Tracy. He’s a cooler cat. Sherlock Holmes is old.

Superman or Batman?

Superman. Even though he’s 4-F because of his vision and had to sit out the war, he can still fight the bad guys with the best of them.

Cats or Dogs?

Dogs are more dependable and more intimidating if you need to face down a bad guy.

Gone with the Wind or The Wizard of Oz?

The Wizard of Oz. It’s a story Iris relates to more and speaks to her own journey to find courage, a heart, a brain, and a home.

Bing Crosby or Fred Astaire?

Bing Crosby. He’s a young hip crooner who’s making all the girls swoon.

Chocolate or Vanilla?

Chocolate. Life’s too short for vanilla.

The Hobbit or Brave New World?

Brave New World. It’s about the future of this world, not the present of an imaginary one, and Iris is very concerned about what’s happening in her world right now.

Early morning or Late nights?

Late nights. People are much more interesting once the sun goes down. And they’re easier to follow.

Film or Radio?

Film. Radio is nice, but when the lights go down and the orchestra music swells, it’s easier to lose yourself in a movie.

Pluto or Goofy?

Goofy. He’s just much more entertaining. Plus, they’re both dogs, but Goofy gets to be a dog who acts like a human while Pluto is just a dog.

Monopoly or Sorry?

Monopoly. There’s more strategy involved.

Pink or Red?

Red. It’s the shade of lip crème that goes with everything.

Thanks for playing!
