This week we have a lot of Fun Stuff. We have Emlyn's Playlist for Open Heart, the Characters answering "This or That" Questions and "Who is your Open Heart Boyfriend Quiz". Also, Do not Forget to enter the Giveaway for a chance to win copies of Farsighted & Open Heart!

A lot of the readers' wanted to know whether the Emlyn listens to music while writing. So here's the PLAYLIST for Open Heart.

Now time for "This or That". Read on to know more about the characters' choices. Here's what they had to say:

Nintendo DS or Game boy?
Um, I’m… blind. I can’t really use either.
Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings?
Harry Potter, I think. I don’t know for sure since my parents keep getting me audiobooks and braille books that represent my “proud Greek heritage.”
Amazing Race or Survivor?
I’ve seen both shows a couple times. Survivor works better without the visual end since there are fewer people to keep track of.
Batman or Spiderman?
Spiderman—that guy and I have quite a bit in common. With great power comes great responsibility.
Die Hard or Terminator?
The Terminator, for sure. I wish I was all strong and powerful like that, but no, I can see the future. Big freaking deal…


Vampire or Werewolf? 
Um, I’m not quite sure why you’re asking this question. Both are scary, but I guess I’ll choose werewolf. Werewolves are part human, at least, so in theory, I should be able to control them with my clairsentience… and not become dinner.
Harry Potter or Chronicles of Narnia? 
Harry Potter, since it’s what everyone’s reading these days.
MasterChef or Top Chef? 
Neither. Why would I watch something that would make me hungry and possibly cause me to be bad and allow myself to eat? No.
Moment of Truth or Family Feud? 
I don’t care for Moment of Truth, so Family Feud.
Jack Sparrow or Willy Wonka or Mad Hatter? 
Not, Willy Wonka. I can’t have candy, or I will get too fat. I kind of like Jack Sparrow. He’s a good-looking pirate.

 Vampire or Werewolf?
Vampire! I have a way with the undead, you know.
Harry Potter or Chronicles of Narnia?
Oh, Daddy used to read me Chronicles of Narnia when I was a little girl!
MasterChef or Top Chef?
Any chef is a good chef—especially if they can make a nice gumbo or jambalaya.
Moment of Truth or Family Feud?
Moment of Truth is scary, but necessary. What’s the point of living in the dark—and are you really living at all?
Jack Sparrow or Willy Wonka or Mad Hatter?
Willy Wonka, tra la la la! Oh, I’d have so much fun in his factory. I’d dive head first into the chocolate lake and do a few laps!

 Nintendo DS or Game boy? 
I don’t need those things. I’ve got my iPhone and my X-Box 360 and my PlayStation 3. But I don’t play games that much, not like those loser kids who have nothing better to do.
Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings? 
Um, aren’t those both geek movies. No, thanks.
Amazing Race or Survivor?
Survivor, because the chicks wear less clothing, and some of them are pretty hot.
Batman or Spiderman? 
I’ll pick Superman, because he’s the most like me. Batman and Spiderman are both losers next to Superman.
Die Hard or Terminator? 
Die Hard. A much better movie series.

Nintendo DS or Game boy? 
My little sister had a DS and was always playing pony games. I never got into it. I’ve always preferred books for my hand-held entertainment.
Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings? 
Lord of the Rings. It’s a classic with far deeper themes than Harry Potter, and without Tolkien, Rowling wouldn’t exist.
Amazing Race or Survivor? 
Amazing Race. I’d love to travel the world, and let’s face it, I’m smart enough to come out on top. It would be nice to win my own cash rather than having to rely on father’s.
Batman or Spiderman? 
Batman. He’s a hero by design, not accident.
Die Hard or Terminator? 
I don’t care for action movies. I’d rather watch something with more depth.
