Book Spotlight and Giveaway: Joyride by Anna Banks

Today I wanted to share a bit about Joyride by Anna Banks. While I didn't fully love this book, I do think that so many others will love it a lot. Because it is a fun book. And so pretty. It has a sweet romance. You will all love this book. You should also know that Anna Banks is the sweetest person. <3 I adore her so much. And her books are pretty awesome :) I simply cannot wait to read her next book. Have any of you read Joyride yet? What did you think of it? :D And if you haven't read it yet, you really should enter my giveaway below to enter to win a pre-order of the paperback edition that comes out this summer :) And also, the lovely Anna is having the most amazing giveaway on her blog right now. <3 Enter here.

A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices for midnight pranking, and are soon in over their heads—with the law and with each other—in this sparkling standalone from NYT-bestselling author Anna Banks.

It’s been years since Carly Vega’s parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico.

Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber’s dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn’t acknowledge Amber's mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfill whatever his conservative father expects.

All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to NOT do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they’ve been living according to others. Carly and Arden’s journey toward their true hearts—and one another—is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.

Anna Banks is a YA author who loves to write feisty humor and swoony romance. She adores fried chicken and her mini wiener dog Puckledoo, but hates licorice and sadly, poetry that doesn't rhyme. At this time she is not accepting applications to be her body guard, so please stop asking. :)
