MBWE presents Birthay Girl, Ruby

We have a birthday in the hizzous!! 
In honor of birthday girl, Ruby from Ruby's Reads and since it coincides with our Month of Indie Epicness, we asked her to put together a random, but cool post on one of her favorite indie books...but first:

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday dear Rubitaaaaah,
Happy birthday to you!

*hits high note*

We asked Ruby to pick a favorite indie book and give it a soundtrack. Sounds easier than it actually is, but she managed to come up with five songs that she thought suited her book of choice.

Vampires and Shapeshifters.

Kita Nekai, on the run and the smallest of her shifter clan-a calico cat among lions and tigers-is being hunted. She was expected to accept her role as her father's successor whether or not her cat was up to the task of leading the clan. She disagreed. Now she's less than a step ahead of the hunters, bone-tired, cold, and living hand-to-mouth in the city of Haven. And that's the high point of her day. She's also drugged, "accidently" turned into a vampire, and sentenced to death for recklessly creating a rogue shifter who tortures its human prey. She's got seventy-two hours to find the rogue, evade a city full of hunters, prove she's not responsible for the rogue, and keep the vampire council from killing her. All while sorting out an apprentice mage, a married ex-boyfriend shifter-hunter, and the vampire who made her.

Soundtrack includes:
Cousins by Vampire Weekend
I Will Follow You Into The Dark by Death Cab for Cutie
Blackbird by The Beatles
Crazy by Patsy Cline
Someone Like You by Adele

NOTE: For some reason, I couldn't find The Beatles version of "Blackbird" for the playlist so I used Sarah MacLachlan's version.

Don't forget to stop by Ruby's blog to wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and see some of the other cool stuff she has going on.

AND Aislynn over at Stitch-Read-Cook also has a "This Day in History...April 12" post so you might want to check that out for some interesting stuff.
