Book Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Blood Numbers by C.F. Kreitzer @cfkreitzer @SDSXXTours

Blood Numbers 
by C.F. Kreitzer 
Genre: YA Dystopian 

There are only two kinds of people left on the earth: Donors and Recipients.

Sixteen-year-old Aston Vazeto hates the idea of selling her blood for money and is determined to be the first Donor in New World history to never donate.

But after a suspicious accident at her father's power plant leaves her family diving deeper into poverty, Aston has no other choice except to enter the annual blood auctions, where Recipients bid on the richest blood. With the highest test results ever seen, Aston’s blood becomes the most sought-after in history, and will likely bring a large price at auctions.

When her friends are caught tampering with their donations, they are arrested and tortured. Knowing she puts her family's safety and income at risk Aston takes advantage of an opportunity to escape donation facility drugs meant to keep Donors complacent. Free to feel and free to love she is caught between Gannet, a kind facility technician, and Marcus, a sarcastic rebel like herself. Dancing at Blood Auction Balls and kissing a donor in coat closets under the stairs has Aston confused between joining the uprising she hears rumors about or merely following the life her blood was meant to lead. 

Book Trailer:

Imagine living in a world where there were only two kinds of people, Donors and Recipients. Donors are people who are paid for their blood; the higher their blood numbers are the more they are paid. Donors receive credit for their blood and these credits are how they survive and pay for things.

Sixteen-year-old Aston’s family has been donating blood for many generations but Aston has decided that she is going to be the only person in history to not donate. When her family finds out they are sorely upset by this fact as her donations would help the family out tremendously. But life among other things forces her to change her mind.

Aston has the highest blood count in history her blood is sought by many. With her blood being the most wanted in the world she decides to enter the blood actions where Recipients bid against each other for the Donors with the highest numbers. With high numbers Aston is also invited to Blood Auction Balls.

Blood Numbers is not quite like any book I have read before. It drew me in from the first page but if I am honest it was more like the summary that took my attention. The world building was so awesome and amazing. I love the whole new twist on blood donating.

Blood Numbers is a very interesting and intriguing story filled with twists and secrets that it likes to hang on to revealing them slowly but have you flipping the pages faster and faster and before you know it you are lost in Aston’s world as you leave your own world behind; then the next thing you know you have turned the last page without even realizing it. I would so like to read more in Blood Numbers world and more of Aston’s story in future books.

I highly recommend Blood Numbers to anyone looking for a good book and anyone who likes a good love story set in a dystopian society. 

I grew up with a pretty normal childhood, running barefoot in the Appalachian mountains, playing with turtles and innocently killing them by leaving them on their backs so I could play house with them again the next day. I don't think I always dreamed of being an author. It was just something I did. I made up stories about my dead turtles. I named my fingers and let them battle out family feuds. I wrote about myself in my journal when what I wished would happen was better than what actually did (sorry, Mom for the scare. I still promise I never really snuck over to a party and kissed my brothers friend). What a wonderful surprise when something "I just did" suddenly became something others enjoyed. I'm so forever grateful to my publisher for giving me a chance to share my not-so-normal stories with the whole world.
