Blog Tour- THE NIGHT HOUSE by Rachel Tafoya and a Giveaway!


Hey y'all! I have an awesome music post from Rachel Tafoya, author of the awesome book THE NIGHT HOUSE and of course I've included my favorite YouTube videos. Oh and stick around for the giveaway!

Haven't heard of THE NIGHT HOUSE? Check it out!



Title: THE NIGHT HOUSE
Author: Rachel Tafoya
Pub. Date: December 9, 2014
Publisher: Month9Books, LLC.
Pages: 300
Formats: Hardcover, eBook

Bianca St. Germain works at a Night House, a place where vampires like the aristocratic Jeremiah Archer, pay to feed on humans, and she doesn’t much care what others think of her. The money is good, and at least there, she’s safe. Bianca also doesn’t care that the Night House is killing her. All she cares about is: nauth, the highly addictive poison in vampire bites that brings a euphoria like no drug ever could.

But when Bianca meets James, a reclusive empath who feels everything she does, for the first time, she considers a life outside of the Night House and a someone worth living for. But Jeremiah has decided to keep Bianca for himself; he won’t allow her to walk away.

As she allows her feelings for James to grow, she struggles to contain nauth’s strong hold on her life. If they are to have a future, James must make her see what she’s worth, what she means to him, before Jeremiah and nauth claim her for good.

Now on to the post!

THE NIGHT HOUSE Playlist

Dead Man’s Bones – Dead Man’s Bones
A perfect intro into the book. “Dressed in their best clothes, there are rows and rows of dead man’s bones.”

 

I think this sentiment applies to everyone at the beginning. They are neither dead nor alive, and they don’t know how to move forward or wake from the dream. The sad sweeping music is something I listened to a lot when I was writing.

This song is actually about Where the Wild Things Are, but it’s a little more grown up, which makes me think of The Night House. It’s definitely where the wild things go in this book.

Imitosis – Andrew Bird
A song for James when he was younger. “And why do some show no mercy while others are painfully shy?”


A song for Bianca. “She’s a diamond who wants to stay coal.”

Heavy Lifting by Ambulance LTD.
This makes me think of James and his friends. He is often lugging around other people’s feelings and this one line makes me feel for him, but the ‘we’ implies that he might have some help, with Ally and Shiloh. “These clouds bring heavy heavy rang and lifting is an awful lot of pain. We’re gonna be sore for sure.”



You Know I’m No Good – Amy Winehouse
This is the song for Bianca, when she’s first getting to know James. Instead of an ex boy, she is thinking about nauth and vampires.


This is a song for James and Bianca after they’ve gotten to know each other. “And I said I know it well, that secret that you knew but don’t know how to tell.”

This is a song for Micah. It’s a beautiful tragic song about someone who was made into a beast.

This is a song for Finn. “Never wanted from another man. Never wanted from my own.” I think Finn would appreciate the melancholy kind of soul in this, even if he would never admit it.

It’s hard to pick a song for Jeremiah, but I like this one. It was something I listened to when I was writing the book and seems appropriately creepy for Jeremiah. “I’m known to bite in tight situations.”

How It Ends – DeVotchKa
Just a perfect ending song for everything.
