Indie Recs: Hampire

You got it right, a book called Hampire. And it’s as hilarious as you think it’s going to be. Lana Moon somehow weaves her brand of sassy dialogue with a cute romance in a really fun story. The pacing was fast, the characters interesting and fleshed out, but also dealing with very relatable young adult issues. Altogether, it was a blast.

October 2015 Obsessions

Now that certain shows have returned, I feel the need to acknowledge the awesome. One such show that my husband and I were enamored with last year is the Flash. Quality. Just, quality. I’m fairly certain I cried every episode. While I am notorious for crying at emotional scenes, I have to actually connect to the characters to induce said tears–so I’ve watched shows where characters die and I’m not fazed.

And another mention that has me in stitches is a newcomer: Scream Queens. This is cheesy and silly as shit, I’ll admit that from the start. But it makes me laugh, a lot. And that makes it worth watching for me. Also, I have to admit, it’s rather fun for October since it gets me in that Halloween spirit!

On the book front, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the latest Kate Daniels, Magic Shifts. My husband is amazing and picked it up for me, and I tore through it incredibly fast. Those books are near and dear to my heart, mostly due to the witty dialogue and character relationships. Every time I pick up a Kate Daniels book, it’s like a reunion with old friends. Love them dearly.

As far as other books I’ve been reading, I just ripped through Hampire by Lana Moon, as well as When Dark Falls by Pippa Jay–both were delightful reads.
