Colleen Hoover’s latest book release, Without Merit: A Novel was a HUGE hit with many readers, and in fact, it won a Goodreads Choice award, and now, we’re giving away a SIGNED hard cover copy!!!!

It’s a poignant YA book dealing with mental health issues, and with a romance element (but not the main focus).

“Your emotions are valid, Merit. Don’t let anyone tell you any different. You’re the only one who feels them.” #WithoutMerit

Here’s just a snippet of the blurb to give you an idea… what a blurb jolt it gives me!!

…Merit Voss collects trophies she hasn’t earned and secrets her family forces her to keep. While browsing the local antiques shop for her next trophy, she finds Sagan. His wit and unapologetic idealism disarm and spark renewed life into her—until she discovers that he’s completely unavailable. Merit retreats deeper into herself, watching her family from the sidelines, when she learns a secret that no trophy in the world can fix.

Fed up with the lies, Merit decides to shatter the happy family illusion that she’s never been a part of before leaving them behind for good. When her escape plan fails, Merit is forced to deal with the staggering consequences of telling the truth and losing the one boy she loves.

And here’s a little question & answer insight to the book’s “feel” and inspiration.

About the “genre” she says:

“From the moment of conception, this book’s genre has been a world of confusion. Some say YA, some say NA, it’s shelved in some places under women’s fiction and if you look at Amazon, despite much protest by me, it is strangely listed as a psychological thriller. I never write books with the idea that they will fit a certain mold. I just write the stories I want to tell and more often than not, the genre is pretty obvious when the book is finished. But sometimes, the genre is not so clear.

When it was announced that Without Merit was one of the books in the Goodreads Choice Awards for best romance, I was nervous that’s not where it belonged. It could fit everywhere and nowhere.

Because of that, I was floored when I was told that it won best contemporary romance for 2017. To see how many of you supported it made me realize that your votes should hold more merit than anything. And even though Sagan and Merit’s relationship isn’t the forefront of this story, it is a very important part of the story. So thank you to everyone who loved their relationship and Merit’s journey.”

And for fun, here are some extra tidbits by the author about this book. Colleen says:

I found this poem in a notebook just now. I had written it for Merit’s character in #WithoutMerit and then forgot about it while I was writing the book, so it wasn’t included. But here it is. Too late, but maybe not too little.

Merit would like you to know that she is nothing like her twin sister. Hear why in this #WithoutMerit audiobook excerpt from @Simon & Schuster Audio: http://bit.ly/2ylmQeN

❤❤❤❤ thank you for the chance!

Loved this book! Colleen is a queen!

Thanks for the chance!

I loved this book so much. Merit is one of those characters I wasn’t ready to say goodbye to because she was so real. She was terribly flawed, but she learned and grew from those flaws.

Would love a copy! Thanks for the chance

Thanks!!!

I’ve been a CoHort for a few years, but none of Colleen’s books have touched me in the way Without Merit has. I’m 18 and in October I was diagnosed with Major Depression, Generalized Anxiety, and Borderline Personality Disorder. Merit’s story helped me feel better about what was going on in my life. Ps I got a new puppy when I was discharged from my inpatient therapy and I named him Sagan!

Thank you so much for this amazing opportunity! I love CoHo, I’ve read almost every one of her titles and she’s incredible. Pethaps the one author I’d like to meet in person sometime. I’ve yet to read Without Merit so this superb hardback will be my prized possession! Thank you Maryse! Much love for happy holidays!

Haven’t read it yet, so thanks for the chance

What an interesting book cover. Really intrigues me and makes me want to read the book. Thanks for a chance to win it.

Once again an amazing book from Colleen Hoover. ❤❤❤

I’m new as a CoHort but I’m so glad my best friend got me hooked to her books! If I am chosen to win this will move my first official Colleen Hoover book to own!

I want to read this so badly, thank you for the chance!

Thank you for the chance to win
