Interview with Flynn Meaney

Today, I am super duper excited as we have the extremely funny Flynn Meaney here to discuss her books: Bloodthirsty and her newest release The Boy Recession (look for my review later today).

Amanda: Flynn can you please tell us a bit about yourself?
Flynn: Well, I grew up just outside of New York City and went to the University of Notre Dame, where I majored in marketing and minored in French. I was really lucky in college because I studied abroad twice—in Ireland, where my family is from, and in Paris. I just finished my MFA in Creative Writing from Hunter College, and now I work for a French company as my “day job.”

Amanda: Describe a typical day of writing? Are you a planner or pantser?
Flynn: Ooh, I just googled “pantser”—that’s a new word for me, apparently it doesn’t just mean someone who pulls other peoples’ pants down! I’m not a …

When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home.

Except there’s something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she’ll turn to dust if he touches her. It’s not until Dez’s father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there’s more to this boy—and her father’s “law firm”—than she realized.

Kale has been a prisoner of …

Book Blurb:

The battle between vampires and wraiths begins…

It’s going to be okay, Lucas, I thought. We’re dead, but we can still be together. Nothing matters more than that. We’re stronger than death. Now nothing else ever has to come between us. You and I never have to be apart again.

My Thoughts:

The first two books in this series were childish at best, Hourglass started to make up for these downfalls, but Afterlife? It ruined any chance of redemption for this series.

To save his life, Lucas has been turned, now he has to deal with the knowledge that he has joined the ranks of the monsters he has been trained from birth to …
