Saving Amy by Nicola Haken : The Blog Tour

Book: Saving Amy
Author:  Nicola Haken
Publication Date: June 26th
Genre: New Adult/Romance/Contemporary/Abuse

Eighteen year old Amy’s surname may be Hope, but her life contains anything but. She drinks, she sleeps around, she cuts… anything to help her escape the agonising existence growing up between her mother’s drunken wails and her father’s fists. But nothing works. There is no escape. And Amy wants out…

Enter Richard Lewis – the doctor responsible for saving Amy’s life after her drink and drug-fuelled suicide attempt. Thanks to his own hidden demons, Richard is drawn to Amy and her situation, and despite the incessant warnings from both his own mind and his jealous ex-lover Joanna, he feels compelled to help her.

But how will Amy feel when she discovers Richard’s attachment to her is born out of his own guilt? He was her last resort – her last chance at being saved. Can anybody save Amy, or has she finally reached the end of a very long, torturous road?

(Not recommended for younger readers due to language, scenes of self-harm and sexual content)

My Review:
Saving Amy may be dark but I haven't read a more hopeful and dreamy book..

It really speaks to all abusive victims,but also to the rest of the world that remains ignorant of the situation..There are so many victims,verbally or physically abused, who are afraid to speak out,who lose every ounce of self-confidence that they once had..
All they need is strength..They may recognise it to themselves or to someone special..

Amy found her strength to Ritchard..She is a survivor,she is strong..But quite often we need somebody else to be strong for us,somebody else to be our own strength..And Ritchard does that..He is the stregth of the book while Amy is the heart..

This books shows that it's ok to rely on someone else..that it's ok to be just you and no one else..It's ok to ask for help..It's more than ok to trust others and let them in..

Saving Amy is a very emotional book,with endless depth that speaks to heart and mind...It shows that the world isn't perfect but it can sure be better..

Its darkness is ultimately overshadowed by its light..Abuse overpowered by hope..Unhappiness overturned by love..

Saving Amy is one of the best books of the year..

I am proud to be a part of this tour..

1.      I don’t like even numbers – Not good when eating biscuits; one isn’t enough, two is even so I couldn’t possibly stop there… so three it is. Unless I’m being a badass, then it has to be five!
2.      I still eat like a child. Orange juice, chicken nuggets and fries for me any day over steak and wine. I won’t eat yogurt with ‘bits’ in and the only sauce I’ll entertain is ketchup. And tea and coffee? Blurgh…
3.      I could easily recite the entire script from every Twilight movie.
4.      Edward Cullen was my first book boyfriend… The first of many I might add ;-)
5.      I’m a total Gleek and proud!
6.      I have quite a vast collection of tattoos and hope to be almost covered by the time I’m a wrinkly old lady.
7.      I couldn’t possibly get through a day without a bottle of Pepsi Max.
8.      I married my high school sweetheart when I was 17 – No I wasn’t pregnant, and yes we’re still together!
9.      My favourite food is mashed potato.
10.  My favourite colour is purple.
11.  I HATED school – like seriously detested the place. There is no way I’ll ever agree when people say they’re the best years of your life.
12.  I collect Barbie dolls.
13.  My favourite band in the world is The Script.
14.  The thought of a world without Netflix makes me sad.
15.  My favourite TV show is The Vampire Diaries (Team Damon all the way baby!)
16.  If my kids ever ask – I’m secretly the pink Power Ranger ;-)
17.  I was born on New Years Eve, which means the whole world celebrates my birthday with me!
18.  My comfiest item of clothing is my leopard print pyjama pants (I wear them so often my husband keeps threatening to throw them out!)
19.  When I was ten years old I decided I wanted to be American and vowed to only ever speak in an American accent from that day on. I’m not sure how long that lasted, but you can rest assured I’m not still pretending now ;-)
20. If you’ve made it to number 20 then I think you’re awesome!

Wow..Those were some weird and disturbing facts...Some were awesome,like purple and Team Damon...mmm...OK..It's decided...We still love you Nicola!...
