Clear Your Shelf Giveaway Hop

Participating Blogs

Thanks to I’m A Reader, Not A Writer for letting me participate in this giveaway hop.

So the purpose of the Clear Your Shelf Giveaway Hop is to clear out my overflowing bookshelf and pass some books on to other booklovers. The rules are simple enough. I have to giveaway books I’ve read but will not read again. Or, books I’ve started reading but just couldn’t finish. Oh, and eBooks aren’t included. I will be the first to admit, I have A LOT of paperback books. When it came time for this giveaway, I stared at all of the books before I decided which book to pick.
I finally decided on two books from Emily Giffin. Why? Because I realized that not everyone has heard of her. These two books are about couples who seem to have the perfect lives and perfect loves, until one of them questions their lives. These are also two of my favorite Emily Giffin books.

From the author of the smash hits Something Borrowed and Something Blue comes a novel that explores the question: is there ever a deal-breaker when it comes to true love?

First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes . . . a baby carriage? Isn't that what all women want?

Not so for Claudia Parr. And just as she gives up on finding a man who feels the same way, she meets warm, wonderful Ben. Things seem too good to be true when they fall in love and agree to buck tradition with a satisfying, child-free marriage. Then the unexpected occurs: one of them has a change of heart. One of them wants children after all.

This is the witty, heartfelt story about what happens to the perfect couple when they suddenly want different things. It's about feeling that your life is set and then realizing that nothing is as you thought it was--and that there is no possible compromise. It's about deciding what is most important in life, and taking chances to get it. But most of all, it's about the things we will do--and won't do--for love.

The New York Times bestselling author of Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and Baby Proof delivers another captivating novel about women and the choices that define them. This is the story for anyone who has ever wondered: How can I truly love the one I'm with when I can't forget the one who got away?
Ellen and Andy's first year of marriage doesn't just seem perfect, it is perfect. There is no question how deep their devotion is, and how naturally they bring out the best in each other. But one fateful afternoon, Ellen runs into Leo for the first time in eight years. Leo, the one who brought out the worst in her. Leo, the one who left her heartbroken with no explanation. Leo, the one she could never quite forget. When his reappearance ignites long-dormant emotions, Ellen begins to question whether the life she's living is the one she's meant to live.
Love the One You're With is a powerful story about one woman at the crossroads of true love and real life.
