Well, today is Day #3 on AAW, and I have picked 3 authors that I have just started reading, well– last month. But still they are awesome and I cannot wait to read the rest of the series. And [in no particular order] lets start with:
  
 
–>
Mark Henry  
 
Oh… I wanted to read this book since last year, and I got them signed on January- But was not able to read them until February. And let me just tell you guys, this was like freaking crack on pages! TRUST ME! I could not stop laughing or going like “ooooooooh..” Happy Hour of the Damned kept me glued to it until the end; and I still have not been able to read Book #2– Cannot wait! *hehe* And about Mr. Henry? Well, He is just freaking funny. I enjoy reading his tweets [and that sounds kindda wrong, but that might be my mind though,] but yeah… He is snarky and funny! What else can you ask for?

Dakota Cassidy
 
What can I say about this lovely lady? People, just follow her on twitter and you will understand my lack of words. One of the funnies people ever, and her comments on whatever she is watching at the moment are down right hilarious– and the hair talk, priceless if you ask me [not that I am that much of a stalker, but hey, it is twitter, they just pop up *wink*] But up to the serious part *clears throat.* Ms. Cassidy’s writing is phenomenal, and the story is amusing to no end, I mean- it is impossible to not like the book! It is great! =) And she is great and awesome with her fans, how can you not want to show some love to a great authoress? =P

Nicole Peeler
  
Again, another funny and snarky authoress! She is a professor and OMG! I want her to come to my school and give me classes! She was teaching John Donne the other day [John Donne was the poet that got me to like poetry, I mean– sexy and cool poems that get you thinking, but are easy to comprehend- FTW!] and like she posted “Donne is easy: ‘Donne wrote sexy poem about God and oddly religious poems about sex. The end.'” Easy enough, right? RIGHT! But, here is to another lovely lady who appreciated her fans as well! And about her book… Let me just tell you- AWESOME! I did not believe that Tempest Rising was her debut novel at first– That is how good it was! =)

The Accidental Werewolf

Published February 13, 2010 by Nerdy_Faery

The Accidental Werewolf by Dakota Cassidy


  •   Paperback: 326 pages 
  •   Publisher: Berkley Trade (February 5, 2008) 
  •   ISBN-10: 0425219305 
  •   ISBN-13: 978-0425219300

When Marty Andrews gets bitten by a mangy mutt while walking her teacup poodle, her blond hair darkens, the hair on her legs starts growing at an alarming rate, and her mood swings put her dream job as a sales rep for Bobbie- Sue Cosmetics in serious jeopardy.

Then a drool-worthy man shows up at her door claiming that he accidentally bit Marty. And since he’s a werewolf, she is now, too. Thinking Keegan Flaherty is clearly insane, Marty refuses to believe a word until a kidnapping makes her realize there’s more at stake than just her highlights. And she must put her out-of-control life in the hands of the man who makes her blood run wild in more ways than one…

 

Another book win! I really do not know what is happening lately, but most of the books that I read, are freaking amazing. And Dakota Cassidy did not disappoint. The story was incredibly funny, and kept me giggling –nonstop. I love Cassidy’s take on the werewolves. Her writing style is definitely unique [at least compared to the one’s I have read] and entertaining as hell. In three words: cute, humorous, and enjoyable.

The characters were hilarious. I loved Marty. Her determination, and the way she changed after being bitten. And yeah, she might have been whiny and/or self-centered, but are we not like that at times? Keegan *insert eeek,* so dreamy. It was so funny to read about Marty’s struggles, coupled with her hairy legs… *insert uncontrollable laughter* I must admit though, at the beginning I just wanted to smack her silly, maybe because I am a fashion hater… But as soon as she stopped obsessing over the color wheel she became lovable.

At the end, it was a really nice read; I cannot wait until I get the rest of the series. It had a bit of everything: humor, romance, suspense [tiny bit], drama [LOL]. And one other confession, while reading it, I felt so girly…

Well guys, this is where I leave, saying just this: GET THIS BOOK!! It is lighthearted and makes you feel happy *grin*
