Blitz & Cover reveal – By Blood by Tracy E. Banghart

It’s time for another cover reveal and blitz. This time we have By Blood by Tracy E. Banghart. I RAHEALLY liked the cover on this one. Really striking.

I have some really fun bits to share with you all today – I normally like sharing the excerpts to get the mouths watering ect… today I am going to share Ms Banghart’s playlist for By Blood. Mainly cos I already listen to most of it myself and wanted to share it with you guys, but also cos it’s something new. Here we goes:

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000446_00073]Synopsis (Cover links to goodreads) :

For 17-year-old Emma Wong, spending a summer in England should be a dream come true. Gorgeous scenery? Check. Lots of hot guys with accents? Yes, please. 
Throw in an estranged mom, annoying new stepdad, and drooling baby half-brother, and it’s a disaster even her favorite cherry red leather jacket can’t fix. Even worse, there’s (hot) live-in research assistant Josh to contend with. The only thing more embarrassing than   drunk-kissing him hours after they meet? Knowing he’ll be witness to her family’s dysfunction all. summer. long.
But when Emma meets a mysterious girl who happens to be a Druid, her vacation suddenly promises to be far more intriguing than she  anticipated. Powerful rituals, new friends, an intoxicating sense of freedom…and Simon, the sexy foreign stranger she was hoping for. It’s all a perfect distraction from dirty diapers and awkward family dinners.
Trouble is, intriguing doesn’t often mean simple. And Emma is about to discover just how not simple her life really is.
By Blood is a novel about the ways that blood can bind us to others – or tear us apart.

Sin Sin Sin, Robbie Williams

You Never Get What You Deserve, Starsailor

Goodbye My Lover, James Blunt

People Got a Lotta Nerve, Neko Case

On My Way Back Home, Band of Horses

Your Heart Is As Black As Night, Melody Gardot
