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

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! =)

**Happy St. Patrick’s Day!** LOL [Newp, I did not wear anything green today– shame, I know]

Tempest Rising

Published February 27, 2010 by Nerdy_Faery

Tempest Rising by Nicole Peeler

  •   Mass Market Paperback: 368 pages
  •   Publisher: Orbit (November 1, 2009)
  •   ISBN-10: 0316056588
  •   ISBN-13: 978-0316056588

Living in small town Rockabill, Maine, Jane True always knew she didn’t quite fit in with so-called normal society.

During her nightly, clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean, a grisly find leads Jane to startling revelations about her heritage: she is only half-human.

Now, Jane must enter a world filled with supernatural creatures alternatively terrifying, beautiful, and deadly- all of which perfectly describe her new “friend,” Ryu, a gorgeous and powerful vampire.

It is a world where nothing can be taken for granted: a dog can heal with a lick; spirits bag your groceries; and whatever you do, never-ever-rub the genie’s lamp.

Jane True is an outsider on Rockabill. After a night of swimming and bumping into something tummy-churning, her life will change forever. A series of events [creatures and secrets] will unfold before her and help her know more [and understand] things from her past. Everything will turn excitingly and sexily upside down, bringing up a rollercoaster of emotions and memories.

Jane True is seriously one of my favorite female characters now. She is strong and easy to relate to. Together with Ryu, we see her growing through the pages and getting to know more of herself. Her constant cynical and sarcastic comments along with her wit keeps the reader entertained; and also helps us know more about her.

The book is great, and with all the small twists and turns, Ms. Peeler keeps us with our hearts pumping fast, wondering and trying to analyze what really happened, and who was it. It was fast paced [and sexy] from beginning to end, which kept me going and reading constantly, wishing for it NOT to end. The world building was phenomenal. We get to know all sorts of creatures: shape-shifters, gnomes, goblins, vampires, selkies, kelpies… And every character will spike your curiosity and make you want to know more of them.

Tempest Rising was one hell of a read [in a good way, of course] and I cannot wait for book #2 to come out already. I loved Jane, and I loved Ryu [yummeh!] *blush.* I really liked how he help Jane feel comfortable in her own skin. Despite everything else, my favorite thing of the book–> Jane’s inner monologues; they were genius! I could not stop laughing while saying: “OMG! Is that me?” It is incredibly hard for me to believe that this is Ms. Peelers debut novel! It was spectacular, and I want more!

 So, my advice for y’all is: Go and get this book ASAP… You certainly do not know what you are missing!
