Mid-Winter's Eve Giveaway Hop

The Mid-Winter's Eve Giveaway Hop has started. This hop is  hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Oasis for YA, has over 100 blogs participating, and runs from now until midnight on December 27th.

Here's what we're giving away:
1 e-book copy of: 
The Edge of Never by J.A. Redmerski
New Adult contemporary romance

Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.

Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.

With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets. But Camryn swore never to let down her walls again. And she vowed never to fall in love.

But with Andrew, Camryn finds herself doing a lot of things she never thought she’d do. He shows her what it’s really like to live out-of-the-box and to give in to her deepest, darkest desires. On their sporadic road-trip he becomes the center of her exciting and daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But will Andrew’s dark secret push them inseparably together, or tear them completely apart?

This giveaway is for an e-book. Our giveaway is open internationally. The winner will be chosen through Rafflecopter. When notified, the winner has two days to respond to our email or we will choose another winner.

  1. Yes, because I think it's accurate -- it's not exactly YA but also not necessarily adult. It deals with a segment of the population that generally hasn't been written about. I love NA

  2. Yes, I think it's nice to be able to read a story that it's more intense than a YA book.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. I do. I'm older but still read YA and am glad there's an older distinction.

  4. I do, since it's easier to find stories that are more relatable to me (I'm 23).

  5. I am honestly not sure yet. I haven't read anything labeled "New Adult" yet. I think it is a smart thing, though. Especially for those of us who are not quite so "young" adult anymore. :)

  6. I think it's probably important for people who are checking on books for their kids. at least if it's labelled new adult rather than young adult then parents know that's its probably inappropriate for their 12 year old.

  7. I can see where it would be helpful for younger readers when they are picking out books to read. I'm past the age of Young Adult and New Adult, so the tags don't really mean much to me.

    Happy Holidays

  9. It doesn't bother me much...I think it's interesting...I'm pass both in their classifications both heck I still read them. Still it's kinda nice to know what lines are going to drawn so to speak.

  10. I like the new adult category. Most books I read in this category. Every new adult book I've read, the characters are about my age and are experiencing things people who are in their late teens or early 20s are experiencing. I still read young adult books but lately it seems like I'm reading about some one who is 15, which isn't always bad... but other times it feels kiddie.

    Great giveaway! Have been wanting to read this book so bad.
    Merry Christmas!!

  11. I do like it. It's kind of a bridge between YA and adult and that's an untapped area.

  12. I'm not so sure I know what "New Adult" really is. For that matter, though, I don't think the people establishing it do either. I say we just read what suits us and stop sticking a label on it.

    Thanks for the giveaway! Happy Holidays!!!

  13. I like it since YA isn't just happily ever after clean stories. There's stories about real issues and problems young adults and new adults face. It's a new label but the books that fit it have been around, so often people were upset young adult contained such...inappropriate material (even if the kids in question were 18).

    I like it, I know what New Adult is and hopefully this new label will make middle adults and older take a second look at the great books they've been missing because of the supposedly squeaky clean young adult label.

  14. I don't care for it but I don't hate it either

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't mind it. I think it makes it a tad easier to find a book that may be just a tad more mature.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I like it because Its easier to find books that are more mature.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I love NA. I really enjoy YA but sometimes I want more.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I like it because some YA reads really do border more on the adult genre. New Adult gives readers more mature story-lines without being too heavy, and for someone in college it is perfect :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I didn't really even know what it was until just now. It doesn't really matter to me either way but it's sort of nice because it let's you know even more clearly what a book is going to contain within the pages. Can't go wrong with that. Of course, I'll read anything with words regardless, but it's still nice to know what you are getting yourself into in advance :)

  20. We thank everyone for their comments! We are certainly loving some of the New adult titles we've been reading and hope the genre is here to stay.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yes, it's something new! I always love and welcome new genres.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't have any thoughts about what they name a genre. I just like to read a little of everything that way I don't miss out on a book that might be amazing.

  23. I love the new NA genre! It caters for steamier scenes that can't be included in YA ;) Happy Holidays!

  24. I don't. I associate "Adult" with pornography! lol

  26. I like the new NA classification. Happy Holidays! I'm listed as April in the rafflecopter.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the NA introduced classification. It establishes there IS a gap between maturity at 15 and maturity at 30. Thank God there are books specifically labelled so nowadays!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Eh, I don't really think it's necessary, but that's just me. I have read several NA books that have been great, so it's just the label that bothers me, the books themselves are fine. To me they are just adult books.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I like the it, I'm a young adult going to college next year though so maybe that's why... I don't want to leave young adult and adult is too... for me. New Adult fits me.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I like the NA introduction, helps to know what can you expect from it.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yes, I like it. Young Adult tends to fit younger readers whereas New Adult seems to cater the adult readers better.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I do like NA, however I don't want it to be an excuse to add more sex. I don't like the name for it either, but I like how they're putting a different age group, because we need them too!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love it! I'm an adult and I read some more harcore adult books and I also love YA. I think NA is a great medium in between.
