That's awesome. I can't wait to check out some of the other blogs.
I know so many advanced readers that I love to be able to give them books that are at both their reading level and their maturity level. Plus, I prefer clean reads for myself, as I'm a pretty traditional gal!

There's enough filth in the world that i don't have the option of removing from my life so why would i want to read about it too. And seriously if i wouldn't want my husband or children reading it then why should I? Thanks for being past of this awesome giveaway!

I love the idea of clean reads so that I don't have to hide what I'm reading from my family. I have two middle school students who watch everything I do.

I like clean reads because I want to try to keep my mind as pure as possible. cwitherstine at zoominternet dot net

I enjoy a clean read because I can read it wihtout feeling like I'm doing something bad - honestly, I sometimes set down books with too much profanity (that's the right word, right?) because they make me uncomfortable.

i love this blog hop! Thanks for being part of it.
I like clean reads for the same reason you do. How do I tell my teens not to read garbage when I do? Which I don't. Also, tons of swearing, violence and sexual content take me out of the story. FAST.
Thanks for the chance to win your book! I haven't read it yet.

The break from the realness that not so clean reads often have.

paige said...

I want books I can recommend to my teens, and know they don't have a bunch of hidden smut.

I appreciate a clean read because it is not necessary to include inappropriate language or topics to make a book good. It detracts from the book.

I appreciate a clean read because it's easier for me to leave books down with all the kids that i watch. I would not want them to get their hands on a bad book. Thanks

Just looked up your book on Goodreads and I have to say it sounds like a great read! I love being able to talk about books with my nieces and nephews. And we all love a good murder mystery~ they especially love when kids are the ones looking for answers! I guess that also explains why I appreciate clean reads. :) It's really nice to have an excited conversation with someone who has read what you read. :)

Thank you for the chance to win!

I appreciate a clean read because any other just makes me feel... well... dirty. I know, that's a simple answer, but it's hard to explain. :P

ann said...

We need more clean reads today. To much other stuff in the world today. These books can be given to anyone to read

I appreciate clean reads because so many books these days are not. It's nice to see that some still are.

Christine Jensen said...

I like them for many reasons, one being that I like having my daughter be able to grab any book on my shelf and not feel uncomfortable reading it (and me not feeling uncomfortable with her doing so).

I like to read clean books as my daughter is really influenced by what I read. She loves to read and wants to read the same things that I do...most of the time.

Tressa said...

I like to share my books with my kids, family, and friends, and I don't like all of that other stuff in my head so why would I want to share it with them? :)

Thanks for the giveaway!

i love clean reads because there becoming a thing of the past,there are less and less each year!!! i am a gfc follower!!!!

Hannah said...

Thanks so much Tess! I can't tell you how excited I am to get my hands on your book. I'm a GFC follower (Inky).

I'm a teenager and I really appreciated clean YA reads because then I don't have to worry about what thoughts and things I'll get from the content. It's much easier for me to enjoy a book when I don't have to worry about lots of steam.

I like to have books that I can share with my teenage daughter and 10 year old son. Thanks!!

ruthhill74 said...

When I read clean fiction, I feel like I can relax and enjoy the book rather than waiting for the profanity and sex to jump off the pages!

Jenni said...

Thanks for the great giveaway! I love the cover of your book by the way. Anyways I really love finding new clean reads that I can share with anyone. I also like being able to show people books can be just as good without the profanity and being graphic.
