Today on the blog, we have a blog tour and a giveaway hosted by Mundie Moms and Hobbitsies. I will share what the book is about, my thoughts on the book, and then a giveaway. For the giveaway, there are several prizes you can win. You could possibly win one of 5 copies of Drain You autographed by M. Beth Bloom, $50 Credit at Wasteland, which is Quinn's favorite store, Pages from Quinn;s notebook, 10 bookmarks made by Quinn, and 10 90's mixtapes, also made by Quinn.
"Summer. The 90s. The rich, sun-bleached neighborhoods of the Los Angeles canyons. Enter Quinlan Lacey, a cool, bored, sarcastic, sexy 17-year old with a dull part-time video store job and a mild case of teen ennui. That is, until she meets the alluring, River Phoenix-esque James, and realizes the hills are alive with the undead. Inspired more by the early, dry L.A. short stories of Bret Easton Ellis than the current crop of serialized vampire fiction, the supernatural grunge romance, Drain You, narrates the headaches and heartbreaks Quinn undergoes in her quest to stay sane and cool and in love and alive."
You can find the Publisher's Weekly review of Drain You here. "Bloom debuts with a languid, stylish novel that reads like a love letter to cult vampire flicks like The Lost Boys, the work of Francesca Lia Block, and Southern California in the 1990s."
I love the book trailer!
