We’ve decided to test something new here at Literature Approved! Towards the end of every month, for the next 6 months ONLY (ending December 2018), we’re going to select our favorite NEW RELEASE* that was featured on our site and give away a physical copy!

So for the next 6 months, you’ll have a chance to win a new release every month! How cool is that?!

*”New Release” classifies any book, released within the prior 3 months of the month of the giveaway, featured on Literature Approved.


That’s right! Whoever wins has their choice between either Coffee Shop Devos or Finding Hero! Why? Because both of these amazing books released in September and we just loved them both too much to pick; so we are letting YOU pick!


Coffee Shop Devos

About Coffee Shop Devos

There’s something special about spending time at a coffee shop with a friend–engaging in a meaningful conversation, then leaving refueled and ready to tackle the rest of the day. What if your quiet times with God energized you the same way?

Coffee Shop Devos offers a warm atmosphere that will inspire you to discover your God-given purpose and live to your greatest potential. Choose your devo flavor in the Menu of Contents based on your current need. Then lean into deeper intimacy with Christ through reflection and prayer. Along the way, you’ll pick up tips and recipes for making your own coffee-shop beverage–regular or decaf–to enjoy while you read. And don’t forget to share your journey with your friends! #CoffeeShopDevos

Each of the 180 challenging and motivational devotions will leave you feeling refreshed and reinvigorated–almost as though you’ve shared a steaming pot of brew at a coffee shop with your Creator.


About Finding HeroFinding Hero

Daniella Cooper just wants to audition for a lead role in her new school’s production of Much Ado About Nothing—not because she has something to prove, but because she wants to remember who she is. She doesn’t expect much competition from these small-town students in the Appalachian town of Quincy, North Carolina. She also doesn’t expect that performing alongside gorgeous Ethan Hardwick could get her into so much trouble.

Devon Jones just wants to play high school baseball and graduate next year, and get his life back on track after running with some of the wrong people. But when his cousin is arrested along with one of the Hardwick boys, and his Cherokee grandmother confesses that there’s blood on her hands, it seems his own family may be holding him back.

A severe storm washes out land on the Cooper farm to reveal human remains, and Devon and Daniella are thrust together, rather unwillingly, to discover details of a fifty-year-old murder case—details that could send loved ones to jail, as well as uncover the secrets to Devon’s heritage.
