    I love Debs books. I like them because both a girl and a boy can enjoy her books, they aren’t just for girls. Boys can like YA romances too, and I’m sick of scifi/fantasy just want a good modern story

  2. KristyPetree says:

    While I’ve only read a few of her books, I love the emotions they draw out of me. I love the realistic nature of the stories. She covers stories of love, jealousy and obsession, and loss, among other things. I would LOVE to win these awesome reads. Thanks!

  3. e.castiglia says:

    Every one of Deb Caletti’s books is impossible to put down. They are great love stories without being cheesy and all the characters have great depth that makes them easy to connect with and to root for. Each story is so wonderfully detailed and rich with emotion that makes them worth reading again and again.

  4. slsikora37 says:

    The first Deb Caletti book I ever read was The Nature of Jade. I was struggling with severe anxiety at the time and was drawn to Jade’s struggle with anxiety also. In a lot of ways this book saved my life. Since then, I have read every one of her books, some of them over 5 times. The messages in these books to girls about loving yourself and not letting a boy define your worth are empowering and have got me through some bad relationships and worse breakups. Clara’s story in Stay gave me the courage to get out of an abusive relationship. These books have had a profound influence on my life and I don’t know where I would be without them. <3

  5. americe says:

    I love how relatable Deb Caletti’s books are. While I may have never been in the same situation as the characters, I can connect with their emotions, which are so sharp and vividly put down on the page that it makes me feel them as I read. I feel the characters’ sadness, joy, jealousy, and loss so profoundly while I read her books, I can forget my own life and feel connection with another.

  6. alyssayuri says:

    Ohhhh! Amazing giveaway! truthfully, i haven’t read any of Deb Caletti’s books. But i think that’s also the reason why I love her books. It’s the mystery of it all. I like reading books where i forgot the plot because your mind is blank from any impressions. But i love contemporary books, so i’m pretty sure i’ll like her books.

  7. danielleduerr57 says:

    I love the emotions her books portray! My favorite so far is Stay and I can’t wait to read the others.

  8. emilyanne627 says:

    Why do I love Deb Caletti? There are far too many reasons to count. I love where she sets her books, I love the characters and how relatable they are, just to name a few. (The Nature of Jade is my favorite – there’s something about Jade and Sebastian that just make me feel all of the things.)

  9. jessicamezo says:

    Thanks for hosting such an awesome giveaway! I love Deb Caletti’s books – they make you laugh and cry, sometimes in the same scene.

  10. audeniegrace says:

    I have read almost all of Deb Caletti’s books and have LOVED them all!! Two of my all time favorites are The Nature of Jade, and The Story of Us. Her stories are always relatable stories and are able to make us feel less alone. They aren’t your cheesy “everything is always perfect” romance story, which I love!! All of her books are amazing and it’d be awesome to own all of them!

  11. jclay says:

    Deb Caletti’s books are realistic and there’s just something about the characters that clicks with the reader. She’s one of those authors that once you read your first Caletti book, you want to quickly find her other titles.

  12. kmiki16 says:

    Other (lovely) people have already said this, but Deb Caletti’s books are truly relatable. Sometimes, I read to escape, but with her books, I find pieces of myself in the characters.

  13. cup.of.tea.armful.of.books says:

    My two favorite Caletti books are The Nature of Jade and The Queen of Everything. I love how I’m able to relate to her characters. Jade particularly was a character I loved connecting to. Her writing is beautiful and there’s nearly always a moment where I tear up. Such a wonderful author.

  14. Ashlyn1422 says:

    I haven’t read any of Deb Caletti’s books, but I have read the synopsi of each, and they sound incredible. I love realistic fiction, because I can relate to the characters. I would love to win this, so I could find a new favorite author!!

  15. kcmmp13 says:

    She’s an amazing writer that makes the characters relatable.

  16. Magicalema says:

    I fell in love with Deb Caletti’s writing when I bought her book Stay and stayed up all night reading it. I love her books because her writing style is similar to Sarah Dessen (whom I also adore) and Deb Caletti knows how to lure her readers in with the stories she writes. She is simply an incredible author whose books I would read for as long as she writes them.

  17. Junebaby says:

    I’ve read a couple of her books. She writes really good inspirational young adult books.

  18. Alexa says:

    I love Deb Calleti’s books because they always are so emotional and realistic.

  19. To be perfectly honest, I have not yet read any of Deb Calleti’s books, but I have heard good things.
    If chosen as the winner I plan to read and review each book. I post reviews on Amazon, Netgalley, Goodreads and on my blog at
    Thank you for the chance to win.

  20. asleepinwonderland says:

    I had heard so much about Deb and decided to read a book of hers – The Story of Us. At B-Fest I met her, and she was a total sweetheart. She inspired me to pursue my real dreams and gave me the support I needed. Sh is the best!

  21. I haven’t read any of Deb Caletti’s books, but after seeing this post I’m itching to check out ‘Essential Maps for the Lost’!

  22. ColeBowl91 says:

    I’ve never read her books so I’d love to!!!

  23. Tash says:

    I love her books because she seems to always try making the stories relatable like the nature of jade about a girl who has anxiety which I have suffered from for majority of my life.

  24. toriarocks95 says:

    I really like Deb Caletti’s books because they feel very real and relatable. I don’t always like realistic fiction, especially when it involves romance, because I think it often feels fake or multiple books feel like the same characters being repeated over and over. However, when I read Honey Baby Sweetheart, I felt like Caletti did something different that made me care more about the characters and their story because they were original, not typical.

  25. leavemeialone says:

    I can’t really explain why I like her as an author. I have read a ton of her books and I have really enjoyed it. Her books are relatable and even if you can’t, you sure empathize with the characters. I read her books when I was younger, so its nostalgic whenever I see her name.

  26. dhammelef says:

    I like her books because she develops her characters into likeable people that could be your friends and become your friends as you read.

  27. nicolekal1023 says:

    Truthfully I’ve never read any of Deb Caletti’s books but after reading the synopsis of Honey, Baby, Sweetheart it sounds interesting and like it would be a cute read so i will definitely read that book and check out her others.

  28. batkisses says:

    I haven’t read any of Deb Caletti’s books. After looking through this group of books, I see many to add to my TBR. They sound absolutely amazing. I would love the opportunity to read them and discover a new-to-me author.

  29. I’ve only read The Nature of Jade, but I really loved it. Can’t wait to read more of her books!

  30. Sweetoblivion says:

    I love Deb Caletti because she makes her characters super relatable which makes the story even more personal

  31. Archmagereba says:

I’ve read some of the other comments and I’d definitely like to read a Deb Caletti book!!! I’ll have to make sure to put her on my reading list!!!

  59. notsoteenreads says:

    I love contemps, but sometimes it feels like you have to slog through so many books before you find an author who just clicks with you. When I picked up my first Deb Caletti book it honestly felt like i hit the jackpot. Thanks for the giveaway!

  64. smlashley876 says:

    I love Deb Caletti. When I started reading Young Adult literature as a young girl, she was one of the first authors I really loved and always came back too. I still reread Honey, Baby, Sweetheart when I can!

  65. Authorintheworks says:

    I haven’t yet read of Deb Caletti books but even if I don’t win this giveaway I plan on buying and reading one of her books as soon as I possibly can

  66. jenniferedit says:

    At 50, I’m well beyond the traditional YA audience, but I enjoy YA because the emotions read true to me. My friend’s daughter loves Deb Caletti — so I figure I should check her out!

  67. junmeimerryli says:

    I love her books because they are very realistic and relatable even if I am not going through same situations as the character. Deb tells love stories but they are not stories/romance in isolation. These stories happen within the context and detail of the character’s personal lives.

  68. ravenclawcole says:

    I’ve been reading Deb Caletti since I was about fourteen. Her stuff is amazing. Her characters feel real and have their own struggles and personalities that make them unique and interesting. I’m always recommending her to friends of mine who are looking for new reads!

  69. labrat35 says:

    This is a new author for me but all of her books look like great reads.

  70. polarbear says:

    I’ve never read, nor heard of, any of her books.

  71. pepperqueen says:

    I like Deb Caletti’s books for the range of emotions!

  72. Lena1xoxo says:

    I absolutely adore Deb Caletti. She writes real stories, not just the mushy stuff you come to expect sometimes. I met her once at ALA, I believe. Not only is she a phenomenal writer, she’s also one of the sweetest people I’ve come across. You can’t help but love her!

  73. Weeziel40er says:

    Deb Caletti is awesome because her writing is so relatable, whether you’re 16 or 26 or 30! It’s so easy to put yourself in her books and really get into the story.

  74. susanbeamon says:

    I haven’t read her yet. There are so many authors and still only 24 hours in a day.

  75. I’m new to Deb Caletti so this giveaway would be the perfect opportunity for me to discover her books and review them on my blog as well Goodreads, Amazon, and Bookstagram! Thank you so much Riveted Lit and Deb Caletti/publisher! I plan to start reading Honey, Baby, Sweetheart as soon as I’ve finished the book I’m currently reading!

  76. Bookishxwolf says:

    I’m so excited for this

  77. jewelknits says:

    I’ve only read “stay” so far, and LOVED it. I love that her writing has such fleshed-out characters and that she feels true to her subject without “talking down” to her target readers. I did a review on that one and gave her 4.5 out of 5 stars!

  78. kaleighnicole13 says:

    I love love stories and she is such an awesome writer.

  79. Scarlettie says:

    looking forward to reading the last forever

  80. litledeb says:

    Typically I prefer fantasy, but her stories draw me in and I love how each one of them are different but still give a great contemporary story which makes me long for a happy ending.

  81. hannahmontana15 says:

    I love Deb Caletti! Each of her books draw me in one at a time and I absolutely love the twists!

  82. 4jlessad says:

    Deb’s books are contemporary and real, thank you for this amazing contest!

  83. Sarah says:

    Her books are AMAZING 🙂

  84. RememberMeNever says:

    I haven’t actually read one of Deb’s books yet, but that’s simply because they’ve been on my “to buy/to read” list. I have been trying to save up to start reading them! If they’re half as good as what everyone says (and I bet they are even better than that), I’ll be a very happy human!

  85. Ms_dandy says:

    I’ve never read a Deb Caletti book but the synopsis’ and the covers are beautiful. I love young adult contemporary so these would be perfect for me.

  86. Deb’s books are perfect to get lost into. I can read an entire on in one setting.

  87. Trisha McKee says:

    I have not read Deb Calettie but my daughter has. I have tried to get my daughter into reading to no avail. My daughter read Nature of Jade and was hooked . Now i want to experience the reading adventure my daughter has had as well as give her the opportunity to follow up on her first true positive experience in reading.

  88. garrettsambo says:

    This is the first time I have heard of Deb but I want to read her books. They sound interesting.

  89. Atreau says:

    I haven’t read anything by her, but the reviews sound great!
