Giveaway and Guest Post: Don't Let Me Go by J.H.Trumble

Don't Let Me Go
Don't Let Me Go by J.H.Trumble
Some people spend their whole lives looking for the right partner. Nate Schaper found his in high school. In the eight months since their cautious flirting became a real, honest, tell-the-parents relationship, Nate and Adam have been inseparable. Even when local kids take their homophobia to brutal levels, Nate is undaunted. He and Adam are rock solid. Two parts of a whole. Yin and yang.
But when Adam graduates and takes an Off-Broadway job in New York—at Nate’s insistence—that certainty begins to flicker. Nate starts a blog to vent his frustrations and becomes the center of a school controversy, drawing ire and support in equal amounts. But it is the attention of a new boy who is looking for more than guidance that forces him to confront who and what he really wants.
J.H. Trumble’s debut, DON’T LET ME GO, is a witty, beautifully written novel that is both a sweet story of love and long-distance relationships, and a timely discourse about bullying, bigotry, and hate in high schools.

My Favorite Books, by J.H. Trumble

I always have a book or two going, but I don’t get to read nearly as much as I used to. And often, I’m reading for a purpose now—to write a review, to keep up with what’s hot, to see what else is out there in my chosen genre. I rarely choose books just for pleasure anymore.
But there was a time . . .
As I look over this list, I’m reminded of the kind of books I’m drawn to—vast, complex stories; tough, resilient characters; and a touch of romance. If a book is on this list, it’s because I still think about it even though it’s been, in many cases, years since I read it. For me, that’s the measure of a great book. I just can’t stop thinking about it. I rarely keep books, but I’m pretty sure I have a ratty copy of each of these on my shelf. And I’ve read each of them more than once (and that’s very rare for me).
One day, maybe I’ll write a book so awesome. If I had to choose one that’s more me, it would have to be John Irving’s The World According to Garp.  Have you read it?

  1. Love this list. I have read every book up there and loved it except for teh World According to Garp. I can't even tell you the number of times of I have read GWTW. Thanks for sharing and thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I loved the World According to Garp! I love most of John Irving's books. I have only read it twice, it's a big book and I've got plenty, but it is a great one.
    Thanks for the giveaway!


  3. I haven't read any of those, but I hope I do soon. Even though it's not the same, I feel like that sometimes. I don't read the books I really want, I feel like I'm choosing books for challenges and reviews and I hardly have time to read what I'd like. I still enjoy the ones I get to read and it's a great way to find new books and genres. But I can't wait to have some free time to pick a book for me only

  4. This book sounds really good! I'm definitely adding it to my TBR and wish list!! Thank you so much for your generous giveaway prize!! And Thank you so much for a chance to win and for being a part of this fun and awesome blog hop!!
