Gratitude GIVEAWAY Hop

gratitude 2013

When I started this blog in April, it was an outlet for me.  I never expected it to become what it is now, where I wake up every day ready to read, review, and most importantly, interact with YOU guys!  So, it seemed important to join this giveaway hop.  This is a thank you to all of my loyal readers and fans.  And if you are new to the team, welcome aboard!

SO, here’s what I’m offering: THREE lucky winners are going to get a signed copy of one of Colleen Hoover’s amazing books.  I’ve got a copy of  Slammed, Point of Retreat, and Hopeless.  You guys know that Colleen Hoover is one of my favorite authors, because she is both an AMAZING writer (seriously, she started out so great and just gets better and better) and an awesome person.  This summer, I had the rare and wonderful opportunity to meet Colleen.  She was gracious enough to give these copies to me for my readers when I let her know I was a book blogger.  So, please go by her website and say THANK YOU for being her awesome self.

Not only will three people win a paperback copy of the books (signed, eek!), but one lucky person will also get a Colleen Hoover tote and bookmark.  Seriously you guys, I’ve been holding these goodies for awhile just waiting for the perfect time to give them away.

The best part: the giveaway has ONE entry.  Just be a fan — follow your favorite way and let me know how you did.  That’s it — you’re entered!

About the Books


Sometimes discovering the truth can leave you more hopeless than believing the lies…

That’s what seventeen-year-old Sky realizes after she meets Dean Holder. A guy with a reputation that rivals her own and an uncanny ability to invoke feelings in her she’s never had before. He terrifies her and captivates her all in the span of just one encounter, and something about the way he makes her feel sparks buried memories from a past that she wishes could just stay buried.

Sky struggles to keep him at a distance knowing he’s nothing but trouble, but Holder insists on learning everything about her. After finally caving to his unwavering pursuit, Sky soon finds that Holder isn’t at all who he’s been claiming to be. When the secrets he’s been keeping are finally revealed, every single facet of Sky’s life will change forever.


Following the unexpected death of her father, 18-year-old Layken is forced to be the rock for both her mother and younger brother. Outwardly, she appears resilient and tenacious, but inwardly, she’s losing hope.

Enter Will Cooper: The attractive, 21-year-old new neighbor with an intriguing passion for slam poetry and a unique sense of humor. Within days of their introduction, Will and Layken form an intense emotional connection, leaving Layken with a renewed sense of hope.

Not long after an intense, heart-stopping first date, they are slammed to the core when a shocking revelation forces their new relationship to a sudden halt. Daily interactions become impossibly painful as they struggle to find a balance between the feelings that pull them together, and the secret that keeps them apart.


Hardships and heartache brought them together…now it will tear them apart.

Layken and Will have proved their love can get them through anything; until someone from Will’s past re-emerges, leaving Layken questioning the very foundation on which their relationship was built. Will is forced to face the ultimate challenge…how to prove his love for a girl who refuses to stop ‘carving pumpkins.’

About the Author

colleenhoover I love music. LOVE music. Namely The Avett Brothers, Lumineers, Pink, Eminem. I have eclectic taste? If you have any recommendations, send them my way!

I’m addicted to diet pepsi and could tell you in a taste-test which restaurant it came from. It’s a serious addiction, I tell you.

I get stoked whenever I get a message from Goodreads saying I have a new friend request…so request me, dang it!

If you want to know when I have new books out or just want to be inundated by random, pointless blog posts, follow me at

Avoid my Twitter at all cost. It’s propaganda.
