Armchair BEA: Day 3- Giveaway + Literature

GIVEAWAY!!!

Today I will be giving away a copy of Reboot by Amy Tintera, as well as a copy of The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay


a Rafflecopter giveaway


Literature: 

The literature that has changed my life would be The Sea of Tranquility as well as Hopeless, Slammed and anything by Jennifer L. Armentrout. These amazing authors have created these amazing books that will grab your attention from the beginning. Colleen Hoover is another favorite because she chooses topics that will impact you and also what you can relate to. This powerful message of hope and love is what makes me want to hug them.  Many of you can say that Judy Blume has changed their lives, but growing up I never read any of her novels (I know!!) I am glad that now fiction has New Adult because its starting to come alive and many people do go through this stage of their lives where they fall in love for the first time, having troubled times etc. Katja Millay did an incredible job with The Sea of Tranquility because of its intense plot as well as each characters own self flaws they discover that are so a like that they can get along, as well how can you not fall in love with Josh, Holder, Will, Aiden and Daemon. All these characters were made by my favorite authors and I will read more of their books!

  3. Ahh!! I failed to comment since the begging here womanwhomIalwayscompetewithtocommentonGiselle'sSTSposts!!! :D

    But here I am and O_O New adult, I so completely agree with you. And I actually haven't read any book from the authors you've mentioned BUT only the NA by Jennifer under her pen name J.Lynn and you're right. Life changing and eye-opener.

    Though I think that, me myself and I, am always changed one way or another whenever I read a contemporary book. Specially if I identify myself with either the main character or the story. And contemp. NA is doing the same thing for me.

  4. My Favorite books are the series of All Things Bright and Beautiful by James Herriot. I read all the books multiple times and even got the audio books (unabridged) and listened to them over and over again.

  6. I agree with you about Colleen Hoover! I love all her books, they were like a hit to the gut and the heart at the same time they were so powerful.

    I have to go with someone else for my favorite, though, and that's Paulo Coelho. His writing is awesome, and there is a mix of plot, story, character development and spirituality in his books.

    Here's my Literary Fiction and Giveaway posts :)

  9. My favorite author will always be Roald Dahl, because he was my first favorite author--the one who made me a book lover as a child. I still re-read his books for nostalgia's sake.

    As for my favorite book: 1984 by George Orwell, I didn't know when I first read it--but that's book has been on my mind lately.

  11. To name a favorite book/author is almost impossible for me because there are so many, but right now, my focus is on Khaled Hosseini and his new book And the Mountains Echoed because I'm going to an author event by him tomorrow night! I LOVED Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns by him. Hope I win the contest! :-) I've seen A Sea of Tranquility showing up on several blogs this week!

  30. I need to read JLA's series - and soon! Everyone seems to love those books :) I think if I'd had to pick a favorite author it would be Sarah Dessen. I'd go with Veronica Roth like Sara but as she has only written those two books (yet) I don't know if I'd like something else written by her...
