Monthly Recommended

The May Monthly Recommended read and music are:


If you've never listened to The Wombats, you're missing a very talented and generally hilarious set of guys with a gift for music. They're an Indie rock band from Liverpool whose newest hit song Tokyo is one of their best thus far (next to Lets Dance to Joy Division). It's sure-to-make-you-bob-your-head music!

Lenah Beaudonte is, in many ways, your average teen: the new girl at Wickham Boarding School, she struggles to fit in enough to survive and stand out enough to catch the eye of the golden-boy lacrosse captain. But Lenah also just happens to be a recovering five-hundred-year-old vampire queen. After centuries of terrorizing Europe, Lenah is able to realize the dream all vampires have -- to be human again. After performing a dangerous ritual to restore her humanity, Lenah entered a century-long hibernation, leaving behind the wicked coven she ruled over and the eternal love who has helped grant her deep-seated wish. Until, that is, Lenah draws her first natural breath in centuries at Wickham and rediscovers a human life that bears little resemblance to the one she had known. As if suddenly becoming a teenager weren’t stressful enough, each passing hour brings Lenah closer to the moment when her abandoned coven will open the crypt where she should be sleeping and find her gone. As her borrowed days slip by, Lenah resolves to live her newfound life as fully as she can. But, to do so, she must answer ominous questions: Can an ex-vampire survive in an alien time and place? What can Lenah do to protect her new friends from the bloodthirsty menace about to descend upon them? And how is she ever going to pass her biology midterm?

I read Infinite Days a few months back and it is a remarkable story that I had to include this month. I recommend it to fans of Paranormal/Fantasy Romance, especially Vampire-type fiction.

Monthly Recommended is a little event on my blog that lets me connect and quickly recommend books and music to everyone. I love sharing what I enjoy and hope someone else can find a new favorite as well!

  1. Thanks so much for following my blog! That means a lot to me.

    I always love to listen to music, so I'll definitely check out The Wombats! They sound great. Wow, the prologue for Infinite Days sounds really intriguing. That must be pretty tough to suddenly be human living in a new time. Thanks for the recommendations!
