The Fiery Heart by Richelle Mead

I am eagerly awaiting the release of The Fiery Heart Book #4 in the Bloodlines series. I have been addicted to Richelle Mead's Books since the first book of Vampire Academy.

  4. Hi Chene. I posted my favorite spooky read and a Black Punch Recipe that was a big hit with my niece and nephew a few years ago.

    1. Hey Ginny :) Thanks for entering I will check it out!! Hope your read-a-thon progress is going well! Happy Reading :)

  5. Hi Chene! Your drink sounds fantastic!!! Completely up my alley b/c I can't even drink anything that tastes like alcohol anymore (I've lost my college-stamina years ago!!!) Here's my go to drink recipe I got from a neighbor:

    Bikini Martini:
    1oz Citrus Vodka, 1 oz Malibu Rum, 2 oz Pineapple Juice, 1 oz grenadine (shake over ice and strain) YUM!!!

    I'm reading "Pretty When She Destroys" by Rhiannon Frater right now and I totally saved it specifically for Fraterfest :D She's my horror go-to author! I'm also digging on Kate Brian's Shadowlands series for it's creepiness!

    Thanks for hosting a great challenge and nice to "meet" you!!!

    1. Hey Kristin! oh wow your drink sounds awesum, some of my favorite ingredients :) I haven't read RF yet but am giving her a try this read-a-thon!
      Thanks for participating and nice to 'meet' you too :)

  6. So I've been thinking about how I would answer this one the whole read-a-thon and I think I finally have an answer. For my favorite Things that go bump in the night book, I'm going to have to go with my most recent favorite Crimson Night by Marie Hall. It's not necessarily my all-time fav, but it blew me away. It's about a half-lust demon, whose really one of the good-guys. So I was trying to think of a drink that would pair with it and I decided to go with a drink that I haven't had in a while but is the perfect combo of sweet and tangy:

    Lust Cokctail
    2 Vodka
    2 Peach schnapps
    2 Orange juice
    2 Lemonade

    Pour the vodka into a pint glass filled with ice, then add the peach schnapps and the orange juice and the lemonade-done!

    1. I know this is a tough challenge! Thank you for entering and your drink sounds good :)
