Giveaway: Slammed & Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover

Slammed (Slammed, #1)      Point of Retreat (Slammed, #2) 

Hello readers! Recently, I was fortunate enough to meet the lovely Colleen Hoover at an author event signing. There were a lot of authors so this was more of a sign and dash than an event where you could ask loads of questions. Even so, I had a wonderful time with my book-buddy, Arlene from Winterhaven Books. Plus, I got SIGNED books!! Of course I wanted to share the love so I have a few copies I'll be giving away.  The first set is Slammed and Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover.  You may or may not know I ADORED both of these books.  Although, I only reviewed Slammed on the blog (you can read my review here).  I guess I was too lazy to review Point of Retreat, or maybe too emotionally exhausted.  At any rate, both are amazing IMO and I know Slammed has been optioned for a movie. These books were originally self-published but some smart and enterprising person at Atria Books scooped them up!

Colleen Hoover signing all my books! Squee!!


The giveaway is for a SIGNED paperback copy of both Slammed and Point of Retreat.  The giveaway is INTERNATIONAL.  Just fill in the rafflecopter below for a chance to win.  Good luck and thanks for stopping by!

  5. Woha I'm so happy to see that you've met Colleen Hoover! I'm sure that you two had a great chat ;) I've read and loved both books too and I can't wait to read Will's side of story.

    My fave new adult read would probably be Easy! :)

    Thanks for the giveaway :)

  6. I honestly haven't had much luck with the New Adult genre as a whole, so I don't have a favorite, but I started Easy a while ago and liked it, so maybe that'll be my fave when I finish. Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hmm.. not sure if I can choose between "The Sea of Tranquility", "Flat-Out Love" and "Easy", but one of them should be it :)

  9. For now, it's Going Under by S. Walden :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I haven't read much New Adult, sadly. At the moment, the only NA book I can even think of that I've read is Flat-Out Love. Maybe Psych Major Syndrome counts because she's in college? Or, I KNOW!, The Piper's Son. Yes, lets go with that as my final answer:)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Gosh Rachel you are so lucky! I'd love to meet Colleen too-Thanks for making this giveaway international. :D

    The Sea of Tranquility and Slammed are the two books that come to my mind when you say fave NA books. :)

  35. Ahhhh! I've heard such awesome things about Colleen Hoover but I haven't picked these up yet! I fail at being a fan of New Adult apparently. I would say Easy is my favorite NA read simply because it was my first. On Dublin Street would be a super close second, and I'm sure Slammed will rank right up there once I read it:) Thanks so much for the giveaway Rachel!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Yay! Lucky you, Rachel! I'm happy you get the chance to meet Colleen Hoover. I enjoyed Slammed and Point of Retreat so I'm quite jealous of you now. Haha! Someday I'd just go fly over there just so I could meet up the authors and have my books signed. Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Hmmm... I would say Easy, Slammed, and The Coincidence of callie and kayden. It's a genre I'm starting to get more into.

    ReplyDelete
  78. You know, I think I've only read one single New Adult book. I could be wrong. But that single novel was Flat-Out Love and I actually really loved it. I've heard some crazy good things about these books but have yet to pick it up. May have to do that though, especially considering how much you loved them. :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. I'm not really sure if this one count, but you know, I really enjoyed Just One Day. I'd classify it as NA, since the protagonist is in college, and really does a lot of self-discovery and all that lovely stuff. ;)

    It's so cool that you got to meet such a famous author! Even if you didn't get to bombard her with questions. ;) Thank you for the giveaway Rachel! <3
