Timeless Blog Tour/Doppelganger Quiz & Giveaway!

Many of you who follow me on social media know that I recently met and hung out with the very talented Gayle Forman, author of If I Stay. She was so fun and down-to-earth, and I had a great time!

L to R: Holly Hughes, me, Monica Hoffman, Gayle Forman

The funny thing is, Gayle was convinced that I have a dark-haired doppelganger, another author named Nova Ren Suma. 

Nova Ren Suma, NYT Bestselling author of Imaginary Girls and The Walls Around Us

Of course, as soon as I got home that night, I looked Nova up, curious to see if indeed we resembled each other. And when I had the opportunity to sign up for Crystal Collier's Blog Tour for Timeless and host the Doppelganger Quiz, it wasn't much of a decision to make! Doppelgangers are a fascinating concept!

I'm excited to celebrate the release of Timeless! Be sure to take the Doppelganger Quiz below to find out who your Doppelganger is in the Maiden of Time trilogy. I took the quiz and my doppelganger is... ALEXIA! Woot!

Without further ado...

I'd like to welcome Crystal Collier here today to share her new book and introduce you to YOUR Maiden of Time doppelganger!

In 1771, Alexia had everything: the man of her dreams, reconciliation with her father, even a child on the way. But she was never meant to stay. It broke her heart, but Alexia heeded destiny and traveled five hundred years back to stop the Soulless from becoming.

In the thirteenth century, the Holy Roman Church has ordered the Knights Templar to exterminate the Passionate, her bloodline. As Alexia fights this new threat—along with an unfathomable evil and her own heart—the Soulless genesis nears. But none of her hard-won battles may matter if she dies in childbirth before completing her mission.

Can Alexia escape her own clock?

Look at that! You're a story book character. What do you think? Didn't like your match? Maybe should have picked something else? Try again. Share your results. Buy the books and learn more.

That was fun! Huge congrats to Crystal! Did you take the Doppelganger Quiz? Who did you get? Win any prizes?
Happy Tuesday!


  1. John is my doppelganger. I guess he likes board games.

    1. He just might. He likes the social aspect of it for sure.

  2. I found my doppelgänger on Twitter. Small world ;)

  3. I got Kiren! And he's quite easy on the eyes. ;)

  4. Students frequently tell me I look just like some teacher or other they know. I don't see the resemblance, but I guess it's in the eye of the beholder.

  5. Fun quiz! Apparently, my doppelganger is Sarah. I never would've predicted that, LOL.

    1. You got Sarah? That's awesome! My husband always gets Sarah--which tells me that face to face, you and I would be two peas in a pod.

  6. Kristin, thank you for being the BEST hostess. You rock like cheesy nachos!

    1. Lol. Mmm, cheesy nachos... you're making me hungry! :) Glad I could help out! And thanks for the awesome Doppelganger Quiz!

  7. I LOVE Nova Ren Suma. I read Dani Noir when she was still a new author and emailed her to say I liked it. She replied and said she was flattered that a fellow author (I was agented but not published at the time) took the time to contact her. So happy to see her success!

  8. Doppelgangers are definitely an interesting topic. It's so crazy how two very unrelated people can look so much alike.

  9. My doppelganger is a guy!

    My parents say I have a doppelganger back in my home city. I'm not sure if I believe them or not. :)

    1. It happens. This is personality doppelganger quiz, so...

  10. I got John, probably because I chose healing as a gift. But only you would add a favorite cheese question to a quiz. lol


I LOVE reading your comments!! Thanks for taking the time to leave one!
