Giveaway | The End of the World

Thursday, February 18, 2016

It's time for another giveaway - hooray! This time, I'm thrilled to be featuring Amy Matayo's hot-off-the-press novel, The End of the World. Indie published, this novel is... for lack of a better world, beautiful in a shattered albeit healing kind of way. Especially for the characters since, most of us are fortunate enough to not have to endure the sort of things these characters do. Yet, through it all, they come out stronger.

BOOK REVIEW | The End of the World by Amy Matayo

Because this book is a.) so good and b.) I'm late in posting my review, today you can enter to win a Kindle copy of your own. As a little warming, I will tell you, this novel has some PG13-like content. Nothing ever becomes graphic nor is anything in any way shown or written in poor taste. But for anything who doesn't tolerate anything less than G-rated fiction, this might not be the best fit for you.

My review might give interested readers a bit more insight into what the story is about should anyone be curious.

With that said, let's (as usual), get the rule details out of the way.

The giveaway(s) is open to all readers. But if you are outside the U.S., by entering you're agreeing to accept a gifted Kindle version of the book; U.S. readers will have the option of choosing Kindle or paperback (when applicable). I do ask that anyone who leaves a comment under "anonymous," please leave the same name you enter into the widget in your comment - it's not easy to try and match comments when there is no name and in fairness to everyone else, I want to be able to be sure everyone who used the Rafflecopter correctly has a fair chance at winning against those who abuse it - there have been a few people I could not verify. So please, I don't mean to overwhelm, but just keep this in mind when entering future giveaways. I'd sure appreciate it! Winner(s) will have 48 hours to respond to the email notification before another winner is randomly chosen.

To be entered in the giveaway, just enter as much or as little as you like into the Rafflecopter widget, which you'll find down below. The Giveaway ends February 26th.

The End of the World Synopsis: A desperate boy. A damaged girl. And a dark house filled with secrets.

For Cameron Tate, being shuffled from foster home to foster home is just a normal way of life. Until the year he turns fourteen. That’s when he’s sent to the home of seventeen-year-old Shaye McCormick—a fellow foster kid counting the days until she’s released from the system.

For good reason. It doesn’t take long for Cameron to learn that Shaye is shackled to the worst kind of in a home where nothing seems right. And now he’s joined her with no way out. Their only refuge is a lake, a quiet spot at the edge of the property where they can sit together for a few moments at the end of each day. Alone with their thoughts. Away from prying eyes.
At the lake they become friends. At the lake they begin to talk. At the lake Cameron vows that no matter how deep their secrets are buried, he’ll make it his mission to heal Shaye from a past that makes living in the present nearly impossible. Even if it takes until the end of time to do it.

Author Note: The End of the World is a coming-of-age story that follows the lives of Cameron Tate and Shaye McCormick for twelve years. The novel is a Contemporary Romance that crosses the genres of Young Adult and New Adult. The End of the World is a standalone novel. - Amazon

Good luck, everyone!


  1. Oooh! I'm so glad you're giving away a copy. :) I'll grab it if I don't win since I have all of her books. I like that she pushes the edge slightly because sometimes it feels a little more real. Thanks, Rissi!

    1. I agree, Tressa. Amy's style is beautiful and that's what makes it so genuine, and in the case of this novel "raw." :)

  2. I haven't read any of Amy's books, but I am thinking that I need to add this one to my TBR list.;) Thanks for sharing the review and giveaway!

    1. This was only my second (the first being her "Just One Summer" contribution) and it was SO good. I have Amy's earlier novels, I've simply not taken a moment to read them. Soon. Or a girl can hope. :)

  3. Love Amy! Thanks for the chance to win!

    1. This book is SO good, Candice. Hope you enjoy it, and best of luck! :)
