Fifty Shades of Book Boys: Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor

50 Shades of Book Boys

Today for 50 Shades of Book Boys we are featuring Bran from Into the Dim by Janet B. Taylor! Bran is a gorgeous time travel boy with an accent! I have read Into the Dim and I LOVED it! It is one of those books you can’t help but get lost in! My review for Into the Dim will be posting on the blog very soon but trust me this is a book you definitely want to read. Lucky for you it hits shelves tomorrow (March 1, 2016)!!!

We have a great interview with Bran and then there is a fantastic international giveaway for a swag pack and finished copy of Into the Dim at the end of the post!

***Also don’t forget to enter here for the international Fifty Shades of Book Boys giveaway***

______________________________________________________________________

Meet Bran:

Fill in the blanks:

If it was my last day to live I would:

If it was my last day to live, the first thing I would do, naturally, is spend it with the girl I love. What would we do, you ask? Well, you see, I happen to be in the unusual position of having access to the past. I would take her by the hand, and lay the whole of history at her feet. I would give her the choice. I don’t care if we spend the day waltzing in the Austen’s genteel Edwardian England, strolling the hallways of King Louis XIV’s Versailles, or if we spend it mucking about with the cave people. As long as I can watch the colors of the sunset reflect in her eyes, I shall die a happy man. Why yes, I am that romantic. Let the sighing ensue.

The biggest flaw I must overcome is:

Not that I agree, but I’ve been told I often take life less than seriously. And that my mouth will one day get me killed.

My most treasured possession is: 

My little brother. I will do anything to keep him safe.

I would rather like to avoid: 

Hard work? No. Actually, I would prefer to avoid those dour, brooding types. If one cannot have fun, why bother with life?

I would describe myself with these three words:

Devastatingly-handsome. Irresistibly-charming. Ridiculously-bright. Oh dear. That’s not cheating is it? They may be compound, but there are only three.

The first thing I do in the morning is:

One hundred crunches. The abs, you know. (Please. I’m kidding, of course. Tea and crullers. I’m not a barbarian.)

Nobody knows I am:

Terrified of kumquats. Deathly afraid. Hairy fruit…Really? *shudders*

I am the happiest when:

I’m protecting those I love. It’s my mission, you see. The one thing I do well.

About this Book:

When fragile, sixteen-year-old Hope Walton loses her mom to an earthquake overseas, her secluded world crumbles.

Trapped in the twelfth century in the age of Eleanor of Aquitaine, Hope has seventy-two hours to rescue her mother and get back to their own time. Along the way, her path collides with that of a mysterious boy who could be vital to her mission . . . or the key to Hope’s undoing. Addictive, romantic, and rich with historical detail, Into the Dim is an Outlander for teens.

    This post was so fun to read! I’m definitely even more excited now to pick up my ARC of Into the Dim! I think the last answer was very swoon worthy. It’s nice to know that he cares about the ones he loves and he’ll do anything to protect them! Thank you so much for the giveaway! <3

    I liked the response about how he treasured his little brother above everything else. The over confident male leads are prevalent in so many books it’s not even funny, but one that treasures his younger sibling, that’s something that makes you stop and take a real look at him.
