5 Types of People Who Shouldn’t Read Joyride by Anna Banks

People who don’t get sarcasm. If you’re not fluent in the language, this book isn’t for you. I’m not saying I don’t want you to read it. I’m just saying I don’t want you to read it.

People who believe immigrants aren’t people. Tell that to your ancestors. Kthxbye.

People who think pranks are childish. Your mom is childish. And her mom. So.

People who don’t read. Because there are words in it, and stuff.

People who think this book is about mermaids. The only fishtails in here are the ones Arden makes in the mud with his truck.

About Joyride:

Joyride_10-2-14A popular guy and a shy girl with a secret become unlikely accomplices for midnight pranking, and are soon in over their heads—with the law and with each other—in this sparkling standalone from NYT-bestselling author Anna Banks.

It’s been years since Carly Vega’s parents were deported. She lives with her brother, studies hard, and works at a convenience store to contribute to getting her parents back from Mexico.

Arden Moss used to be the star quarterback at school. He dated popular blondes and had fun with his older sister, Amber. But now Amber’s dead, and Arden blames his father, the town sheriff who wouldn’t acknowledge Amber’s mental illness. Arden refuses to fulfill whatever his conservative father expects.

All Carly wants is to stay under the radar and do what her family expects. All Arden wants is to NOT do what his family expects. When their paths cross, they each realize they’ve been living according to others. Carly and Arden’s journey toward their true hearts—and one another—is funny, romantic, and sometimes harsh.

Available June 2nd! Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble | The Book Depository | iBooks | Indiebound | Google Play

    Oh my heck, I loved this! And all those reasons not to read, would be reason for me TO read. Love it!


    Cute cover, it looks like a summery read


    Well I’m all about the sarcasm but I only think pranks are funny if I’m not the victim. LOL 😉


    Fun guest post! And I LOVE books with some good sarcasm and/or humor in general.


    “People who think pranks are childish. Your mom is childish. And her mom. So.”

    *dies laughing* Why I don’t necessarily love being on the receiving end of a prank, I do think they’re hilarious, as is Anna Banks. SARCASM FOR THE WIN!!!


    “People who believe immigrants aren’t people. Tell that to your ancestors.”

    Love that map & quote! Looking forward to checking this out 🙂


    LOL! This review made me laugh. Sarcasm is the bread and butter of a high school teacher.
