Today, we’re very happy to be a part of the blog tour for L.M. Augustine’s new release, Two Roads. If you don’t know anything about this NA read about coming to terms with who you are and who you love, you are in for a wild ride! Plus a giveaway!
6 days only. That’s right. Only 6 measly days until you can get your hands on the 7th and last book in JL Armentrout’s legendary Half Blood series! Sentinel will be out on November 2nd and to celebrate it’s a week of awesome build up to the release. Today is officially Half-Blood day here at I Love YA Fiction and we thought it’d be fun to repost a hilariously irreverent interview featuring Seth and Aiden (as imagined by Ellen and Judith) + our Half-Blood review from a while back. We’ll also give you an opportunity to win a $200 gift card (to buy more books obviously…and maybe share with Judith? No? Hey! I like free books too!)
Have you heard of Render, the recently published debut novel by Stephanie Fleshman? Me neither but I’m thinking that’s a big mistake since this book is hooking readers left and right! lus the author is a doll: Stephanie has graciously offered an autographed paperback open to anyone anywhere!
So here’s what’s up for grabs: an autographed copy of Render (Recompense, Volume I) by Stephanie Fleshman

When we started this blog in January of 2012, it was with a very clear purpose in mind: review books and spread the word about all that bookish stuff we love. Easy, right? Yes! For the past year and a half we’ve been reading and reviewing Young Adult and New Adult fiction left and right. Indie Published, Mainstream Published, Fanfic, you name it! We’ve read it. Our only problem? When one of us took a break from the YA/NA and read something else. This wouldn’t seem like a problem for a lot of people, but for us, it is. You see, sometimes books from these other genres (romance, contemporary, what have you) are good. Sometimes bad. And sometimes we’ve come across something so startlingly gorgeous that all we wanted to do was shout it from the mountain tops! But we couldn’t cause it wasn’t YA or NA. The first book that I read that I was actually disappointed that I couldn’t review here was Priscilla Glenn’ Back to You. Luckily Priscilla added some YA flashback scenes and I convinced myself that that made it enough of a YA book to review it on here without anyone complaining.
Long story short, I just read an amazing book. Two amazing books actually. I want to tell you all about them…actually, no! I want to urge you in no uncertain terms to read them, love them, buy them in paperback cause they’re just so good…but I CAN’T! They’re not YA or NA and no amount of light fingered blogging will make them any less M/M Romance.
If you’re dying to know what books they are, here. Just remember, NOT YA:
So here’s where we need you: Ellen and I want to open our reviews up to ANY book we read regardless of
genre. That might mean we read YA today and Romance tomorrow. How do you guys feel about it? Your honest opinion will help us out a lot!
As a thank you for taking the time (and cause I love to give you guys stuff) I’ll gift a randomly selected person who answers (and comments with a valid email address in the blog comments section of this post) an e-book of his/her choice of up to $5 on Amazon. ANY GENRE! Thanks, for answering!
It’s no secret that I am an unabashed Tammara Webber fan. I devoured Between
the Lines and Where You Are but refused to read Good For You. REFUSED flat out. Why? Cause I hated Reid. When both Tammara and Ellen finally convinced me to read about the Hollywood Bad Boy, I kicked myself for waiting so long. Good For You ranks up there with my favorite YA books of all time. A hard spot to reach, you can rest assured.
Sadly this series is about to end: on August 6th, the final installment will come out. Here Without You is sure to be monumental (at least around here) and in honor of that I’m gonna give away two sets of the series to two lucky winners. That should tide you all over until Here Without You is out!
What’s up for grabs: two sets of Between the Lines, Where You, and Good For You (e-copy)
Who can win it: anyone (though if you’re under 18 it requires parental permission)

One of my favorite Summer Book Boyfriends is Chris Shepherd, the oh-so-sexy and sensitive college senior from Jessica Park’s Left Drowning. This new adult release will be out July 16 and as I keep telling people, this is going to be one of the hottest books of the year. I was lucky enough to meet Jessica and get an ARC of Left Drowning at BEA 2013 but I know that not everybody lives close enough to NYC to make that a reality. So, it’s time for a giveaway!
Let me cut to the chase: I got this at BEA and it was signed by the lovely Jamie McGuire herself. I started it and finished it in one day! And now I want to share so I’ve got that Signed Paperback copy of Walking Disaster with YOUR name on it. That’s right! Yours. All you have to do is enter the rafflecopter entry form below and you can win! So let’s have at it.
What’s Up for Grabs:
Who Can Enter: Anyone in the continental USA (I will not ship internationally so if you enter to win and are NOT in the continental USA, your entry will be void unless you are willing to pay postage; so please enter at your own risk if you are international)

This giveaway might be kind of lame, and if it is, I am sorry but…let me preface this whole thing with this: last year Ellen and I had a blast at Book Expo 2012. If you haven’t heard of Book Expo, it’s basically this huge publishing/book professional event at the Javitz Center in NYC where authors, readers, bloggers, reviewers, publishers, etc all get together to love on books. We got a TON of ARCs, met a TON of amazing people, and generally enjoyed meeting a whole convention center full of kindred spirits. In a word, amazing. I can’t begin to describe how wide-eyed and overwhelmed I was by the number of free books all around me. Books everywhere! All for me! And you! Plus writers at every turn: Jillian Dodd! JL Armentrout!
Ack! I may have fan girled more than once.
This year, we’re headed back on May 31st (and btw, welcome anyone who’ll be there to meet up with us! We’re lots of fun, honest, especially when we head out for drinks afterward.) One thing we do need to do though is clean out the bookshelves to make room for even more books. So I’m having a giveaway! 6 paperback ARCs from BEA 2012 are up for grabs and while they may be autographed in my name (hey-funny!), who cares! Free books! Free GREAT books! Enter now!
Here’s what’s up for grabs:
If you win, you get all the books! A box full!
Who can win: anyone in the continental (48 contiguous) United States
