Blog Tour & Author's Top 10: Lies in the Darkness - Amanda J. Clay

Lies in the Darkness by Amanda J. Clay
Publication date: May 12, 2016
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult

It’s senior year at Pacific State University and all-night parties, cheap hookups and regrets are the ruling pastimes.

Sophie DeLuca used to be a nice girl—but that was before Luke Lamanuzzi tore her heart to shreds. Now she’s a walking trail of vodka-soaked destruction, something her sexy, smooth-talking coworker Davis won’t let her forget. He might have a secret crush on her—but his playboy reputation would never let him admit it. His best friend Blake’s own love of all-nighters and debauchery comes crashing to a halt when a one-night stand backfires. Level-headed Cassie seems like she’s the one who has it all together, but she’s just better at hiding her skeletons.

Ungracefully pirouetting in and out of love triangles, drug addictions and unwanted pregnancies, four friends stumble their way through their last year of study and try to grasp the realities of the world on the other side.

Top 10 List
Top 10 Books Author recommends besides their own.

Only 10?? I’ll give it a try! It’s impossible to say which 10 books are the “best,” so I’ll give you the top 10 books I feel influenced me the most. For the record, I count series as one book.

2. Game of Thrones (Song of Ice and Fire series), George R.R. Martin 
3. Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen
4. Daughter of Fortune, Isabel Allende

6. Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins 
7. The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald 
8. In the Company of the Courtesan, Sarah Dunant
9. Outlander series, Diana Gabaldon
10. Name of the Wind, Patrick Rothfuss

Amanda J. Clay is a California native with a resume of clichéd Cali traits, like a love of breakfast burritos, yoga and red wine. She had a fantastic time studying English and Journalism at Chico State University and then a very serious time slaving away for a Master’s degree in Communications from California State University, Fullerton. She currently lives in the charming city of Berkeley, CA. When she’s not staring at a computer screen, she spends most of her spare time plotting world adventures. She currently has one published Young Adult novel, Rebel Song. Watch for her next release, an offbeat New Adult contemporary, out in 2016.
