I can’t begin to explain HOW excited I am to be hosting this stop on the blog tour for Jennifer Niven’s new novel, Breathless. This novel’s synopsis immediately caught my eye and I love reading Jennifer’s books anyhow – she writes such beautiful, emotional novels and I’m so glad I was able to be a part of this release. I received a package in the mail – surprise! – with a signed book and all kinds of goodies and it was truly so awesome! Today we are celebrating the release with a spotlight on the book and the author, a short review – I’m still technically reading the book – and a giveaway! Let’s do this!

About Breathless

From Jennifer Niven, the New York Times bestselling author of All the Bright Places, comes an unforgettable new novel about a sensitive girl ready to live her bravest life–sex, heartbreak, family dramas, and all.

Before: With graduation on the horizon, budding writer Claudine Henry is making plans: college in the fall, become a famous author, and maybe–finally–have sex. She doesn’t even need to be in love. Then her dad drops a bombshell: he’s leaving Claude’s mother. Suddenly, Claude’s entire world feels like a lie, and her future anything but under control.

After: Claude’s mom whisks them away to the last place Claude could imagine nursing a broken heart: a remote, mosquito-infested island off the coast of Georgia. But then Jeremiah Crew happens. Miah is a local trail guide with a passion for photography–and a past he doesn’t like to talk about. He’s brash and enigmatic, and even more infuriatingly, he’s the only one who seems to see Claude for who she wants to be. So when Claude decides to sleep with Miah, she tells herself it’s just sex, nothing more. There’s not enough time to fall in love, especially if it means putting her already broken heart at risk.

Compulsively readable and impossible to forget, Jennifer Niven’s luminous new novel is an insightful portrait of a young woman ready to write her own story.

Okay, so technically, I don’t have a full review yet because I’m still reading the book. Let’s be honest – as soon as I started reading this book, I was HOOKED. It starts off so strong and I was in. Then life got in the way – my own release last week got in the way – and so I had to set it aside while I focused on other things. However, I HAVE started reading it and I am thoroughly enjoying it. When I received the book, it came with a letter, explaining the origins of the story and it seems like this book is a super personal one for Jennifer, something that’s really close to her heart, and you can definitely tell. I’ve loved her other books but there’s a strength and heavy emotion in this story so far that just shows how important it is to her. I love that the story takes place in summer, in that weird in between time, because there’s just so much possibility and this story definitely speaks of that. I love that the story is about an aspiring writer. I’m thoroughly enjoying the book and once I’m really, truly finished with it, I’ll post a LONG, good review!
