BBAW: You Need to Read This!

At first, I thought that this was going to be a really tough question but then a book came immediately to mind so here it is: Piper’s Fury by Rachel Firasek.

It’s an empath thing…

Using your “powers” to help the Dark Hills Police Department hunt down serial killers doesn’t leave much time for dating. Not that Piper Anast is complaining. The last thing she needs is some guy brushing up against her and pumping his pornographic thoughts into her head.
When she meets Bennett Slade, a sexy, tormented vampire, Piper stumbles headlong into a telepathic connection with his missing daughter. She can’t leave the kid to the evil surrounding her unwanted visions, nor can she resist her draw to Slade. He’s the first guy she’s been able to touch vision-free in, well, forever.
As she and Slade close in on the evil creature holding his daughter, Piper’s powers morph into a deadly fury. To save Slade’s daughter-and herself-Piper must face down demons she never knew she had and trust the one thing she keeps from everyone.

Her heart.

Sounds pretty amazing doesn’t it?!?  Well it really is.  These are some of the most addiciting characters I have ever written.  I talked about this book so much when I read it that my husband decided that even though this is not his typical genre he needed to read it and he even like it a lot and recommended it to people.  So don’t just take my word for it check out what others had to say:

“ I was so into this book that I just had to know what was going to happen next. ”

-Michelle @ Book Briefs 

“Rachel Firasek masterfully creates a dark world full of intrigue, passion, and suspense in which she incorporates a tough and snarky heroine with a kind-hearted, hot, alpha-male vampire. “

-Ciara Knight

“ Her character is very well developed and the plot flowed perfectly. ”

-Mrs. Black

You can check out my review, the Amazon Page, the Goodreads Page, and Rachel Firasek’s Page.

And then the online reviews these have to mean something great:

I hope you will check out this book for yourself. 

Now what books do you have to share with me?  Hope you will leave them in the comments

BBAW Interview Day!

Happy BBAW Interview Day!

I was luck enough to interview Trish from Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity
www.lovelaughterinsanity.com

Her fun style and interesting post had me thrilled to get the chance to interview her and to find a new blog to follow.  I hope you enjoy her interview and that you will stop by and check her out!

Lisa: Tell us a little bit about yourself and your blog.

Trish:  I started blogging solely about books five and a half years ago but as I started to get to really know other bloggers my content started becoming more personal. Now there is a mix of all aspects of my life on my blog–especially as I’ve started a new chapter of life as a mom. I’ve been accused of having too much energy but I’m hoping that in a small way I’m helping spread some joy across the community.

Lisa: Do you have any other hobbies outside of blogging and reading?

Trish:  It seems I’m always busy doing this or the other but some of my favorite non-bookish/blogging hobbies include quilting, crafting, cooking, and baking. Of course, if I can listen to an audiobook while doing these things it’s a double win.

Lisa: Share a little bit about your Pinterest Pin It and Do It challenge.

Trish: I fell in love with Pinterest last summer but didn’t take the time to actually do any of the things I pinned. I made this a goal in 2012 and after seeing so many others their obsession with Pinterest but lack of follow-through I started the Pin It and Do It Challenge. The challenge is easy–just complete something that you’ve pinned. The next round will start in October.

Lisa:  What literary location would you most like to visit? Why? 

Trish: Great question! Wuthering Heights is a book that moody and atmospheric. As we start creeping into fall I’d love to visit the Moors featured in Wuthering Heights. Other than that? Hogwarts.

Lisa: Have your reading tastes changed since you started blogging? How? 

Trish: I wouldn’t say that my reading tastes have changed but they have been enhanced since I started blogging. My eyes have been opened to so many different authors and books that I would have never discovered outside of blogging and I’m so grateful for that. I also find that I’m a more adventurous reader thanks to blogging.

Lisa: You have been blogging for 6 years, congrats, what have you learned along the way?  What advice do you have to share?

Trish:  There have been a lot of ups and downs for me as a blogger over the past five and a half years. I even gave up my popular book blog almost three years ago to start over at Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity where I could blog without the (self-imposed) restrictions, guilt, and stress. Mostly what I’ve learned is that it is important to blog for yourself but mostly to be yourself. My advice for other bloggers is to not be afraid to break some of the rules. And have fun!

Thanks for the great interview, Trish!
