When I had this idea, I first went to my giveaway stack to see what I had that I wanted to giveaway. Then I made a list of authors that I wanted to contact. I knew that not everyone was going to have the time to send me something, but out of the 12, only 3 people either said they couldn't, or didn't respond to my email. Which I completely understand, this time of year coupled with any deadlines makes for some tricky timing.
Today's giveaway is one of those that doesn't have a special story to go with it. However, they're some amazing books. Up for grabs....
The critically acclaimed, bestselling novel from Gayle Forman, author of Where She Went, Just One Day, and the forthcoming Just One Year.and
On a day that started like any other,
Mia had everything: a loving family, a gorgeous, admiring boyfriend, and a bright future full of music and full of choices. In an instant, almost all of that is taken from her. Caught between life and death, between a happy past and an unknowable future, Mia spends one critical day contemplating the only decision she has left. It is the most important decision she'll ever make.
Simultaneously tragic and hopeful, this is a romantic, riveting, and ultimately uplifting story about memory, music, living, dying, loving.
It's been three years since the devastating accident . . . three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever.
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future-and each other.
Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance.
I have signed, paperback copies of If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman. Rules for the giveaway are under "terms and conditions" on the Rafflecopter widget, this contest is international!
