Book recommendations from you and a giveaway!

Help! I’m leaving on a three week vacation and have absolutely nothing to read. Hard to conceive of but true. So here’s a fun way for me to get recs and a lucky winner to get a free book!

I totally heart books; how about you?

Here’s the deal:

You: leave the name and author of a great book you recently read. When I say great, I mean just that – I want something that wowed you; made you think about the characters long after it was over; made you wish that you knew the author so you could storm over to her home and then beg her to write a sequel.

Me: I’ll take your recs and get great reads for my trip *plus* I’ll gift one lucky reader a free e-copy of any book recommended (your choice!).

So start recommending away! Winner will be picked Tuesday around 9 pm.

Release Day Launch – Aspen by Rebekah Crane

APSEN Release Launch Banner

Happy, happy release day to Rebekah Crane, one of our fave authors! Aspen, which you may remember us reviewing back in March is out today and you could win a copy! Details later.

We’re really excited to share this book with you and if you don’t know what Aspen is all about, then here’s the blurb:

One quiet night in Boulder, Colorado, Aspen Yellow-Sunrise Taylor made a mistake.

In the next instant, her life changed forever.

 Aspen doesn’t want to remember the devastating car accident that killed Katelyn Ryan, a sleek-haired popular soccer player. But forgetting is hard– because Katelyn may have died — but she didn’t leave. Her ghost is following Aspen around, and heading into senior year, it’s kind of a problem. Especially when Katelyn’s gorgeous former boyfriend Ben appears to be the only person at school with a clue as to how Aspen feels.

 Popularity, college, Homecoming Court, hot guys – none of these things ever mattered to Aspen. She’s been busy trying to rein in her giant mass of blonde curls, keep her stoner mother Ninny away from Toaster, her mom’s awful bongo drumming boyfriend, and prevent her best friends Kim and Cass from killing – or kissing – one another. But with Ben sitting next to her in Physics looking all too gorgeous, Katelyn’s spirit dogging her steps, and her obsessive snow-globe collecting therapist begging her to remember all the things she wants to forget, Aspen is thrust into a vivid, challenging world she can’t control … and doesn’t want to.

 A darkly funny, emotionally gripping story of opening up, letting go, and moving on, ASPEN is about the best-worst accident of your life … and what comes next.


 One lucky winner will receive a signed copy of ASPEN and $25 Amazon gift card (US/CA only).

About Rebekah CraneRebekah_Crane

Rebekah Crane fell in love with YA literature while studying Secondary English Education at Ohio University. After having two kids, living in six different cities, and finally settling down in the foothills of her beloved Rocky Mountains, her first novel, PLAYING NICE, was published. ASPEN, her second YA novel, set in Boulder, CO, is due to release in summer 2014 from In This Together Media. She now spends her day carpooling kids or tucked behind a laptop at 7,500 ft high in the Rockies, where the altitude only enhances the experience.

 

Fancy an excerpt? Oh go on…

I swallow hard, trying to wet my dry mouth as someone takes the seat next to me. The bell needs to ring now to save me from further conversation. I scoot my chair over, the room and all its occupants slowly closing in on me—and then my neighbor’s head of messy black hair catches my eye. My stomach drops to the floor. 

“Why are you sitting next to me?” I snap.

It’s Ben Tyler. Katelyn’s Ben. His eyebrows are pulled high on his forehead, his eyes wide.

“Taylor and Tyler. I guess Mr. Salmon did the seating chart by last name.” Ben says it like I’m interrogating him and he’s nervous he might give me the wrong answer.

“Oh.” Tingles flood my hands and I shake them out at my side. All around the room, people are looking at me. My cheeks heat with embarrassment. I’d get up and ask Mr. Salmon to change my seat, but then I’d get even more attention. People would start to wonder why I don’t want to sit next to Ben Tyler. Hotty Ben. The grieving, perfect boyfriend of the dead Katelyn Ryan. Me getting up is how rumors start. Suzy tells Olivia who tells Sophia who tells Claire that I didn’t want to sit next to Ben, and by the end of the week, everyone is talking about it.

I slink down in my seat, wishing I could disappear into the floor. “I hate eyes,” I whisper to myself.

“Don’t sweat it. I get that a lot, too,” Ben whispers out of the corner of his mouth. Only one side of his face curls into a smile, like he can’t force himself to pull the other cheek any higher. I feel the same way most days.

Then it hits me. People aren’t staring at me; they’re staring at us.

“I’m sorry.” I force a two-cheek smile. “I’m an ass.”

Ben huffs out a laugh. A scar runs through his right eyebrow, another across his left cheek. But even with the imperfections on his face, he looks handsome. I count all the colors in his eyes. Yellow, green, brown, flecks of blue.  

“Aspen,” Ben says. “You don’t need to apologize to me.”

I saw him at the hospital that night. He was sitting in a chair, his head in his hands, while Mr. and Mrs. Ryan talked to a doctor in purple scrubs with a colorful sleeve tattoo down her right arm. The scrubs looked more like a costume than a uniform. Mrs. Ryan had her hand on Ben’s shoulder. Even with a face full of tears, he was beautiful.

At one point, he looked at me from across the emergency room. I was sitting in a bed, waiting for Ninny. My head was bandaged, and my leg was in a splint. I was even wearing one of those terrible gowns that open in the back so everyone can see your ass. As Ben stared at me, I kept seeing him and Katelyn in the halls. The whole school knew when they started dating sophomore year, because all of a sudden Katelyn went from the girl who played soccer really well to the girl who held Ben Tyler’s hand in the hallway.

We stared at each other for so long that eventually it got awkward. I asked the nurse to pull the curtain closed. 

Ben doesn’t say anything else to me during class. Mr. Salmon goes over the syllabus for the year and then says he’s retiring in the spring and plans to be sick a lot.

“Nothing’s new in physics anyway,” Mr. Salmon says. “Gravity is still gravity.” He sits down behind his desk, takes a swig of his coffee, and tells us to “read or something.” Maybe I won’t fail after all.

When the class ends, Ben walks out of the room without another look in my direction.

An open question for our readers: A BIG CHANGE TO THE BLOG?!

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

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.

Between the Lines 1-3

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)

Giveaway: Signed ARC of Left Drowning by Jessica Park

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!
