Giveaway Two


The wonderful people at Hachette Children’s Group have given me 3 fab YA titles to giveaway (which I am going to run separate giveaways) and a fab MG set of a brilliant series (which will be run as one giveaway)











A huge thank you to Nina at Hachette Children’s Group for these books!

Prize One – 1 x Six Of Crows by Leigh Bardugo 


Ketterdam: a bustling hub of international trade where anything can be had for the right price – and no one knows that better than criminal prodigy, Kaz Brekker. Kaz is offered a chance at a deadly heist that could make him rich beyond his wildest dreams. But he can’t pull it off alone.

A convict with a thirst for revenge.
A sharpshooter who can’t walk away from a wager.
A runaway with a privileged past.
A spy known as the Wraith.
A Heartrender using her magic to survive the slums.
A thief with a gift for unlikely escapes.

Six dangerous outcasts. One impossible heist. Kaz’s crew is the only thing that might stand between the world and destruction – if they don’t kill each other first.

Prize Two – 1 x Wolf By Wolf by Ryan Graudin 514Ue3imbtL__SX310_BO1,204,203,200_ Once upon a different time, there was a girl who lived in a kingdom of death. Wolves howled up her arm. A whole pack of them-made of tattoo ink and pain, memory and loss. It was the only thing about her that ever stayed the same.Her story begins on a train.

Germania, 1956. Over ten years since the Nazis won the war. 18-year-old Yael is part of the resistance, and she has just one mission: to kill Hitler.

But first she’s got to get close enough to him to do it.

Experimented on during her time at Auschwitz, Yael has the unique ability to change her appearance at will. The only part of her which always remains are the five tattooed wolves on her arm; one for each of the people she’s lost. Using her abilities, she must transform into Adele Wolfe, Germany’s most famous female rider and winner of the legendary Axis Tour; an epic long distance motorcycle race from Berlin to Tokyo, where only the strongest (and wiliest) riders survive. If she can win this, she will be able to get close enough to kill the Fuhrer and change history forever.

But with other riders sabotaging her chances at every turn, Yael’s mission won’t be easy. . .

Prize Three – Silence Is Goldfish by Annabel Pitcher


My name is Tess Turner – at least, that’s what I’ve always been told.

I have a voice but it isn’t mine. It used to say things so I’d fit in, to please my parents, to please my teachers. It used to tell the universe I was something I wasn’t. It lied.

It never occurred to me that everyone else was lying too. But the words that really hurt weren’t the lies: it was six hundred and seventeen words of truth that turned my world upside down. Words scare me, the lies and the truth, so I decided to stop using them.

I am Pluto. Silent. Inaccessible. Billions of miles away from everything I thought I knew.

Prize 4 – A set of The Map To Everywhere books!    The Map To Everywhere (Paperback) and City Of Thirst (Hardback)   51vNFmJTbqL__SX324_BO1,204,203,200_   ‘It is said the Bintheyr Map to Everywhere will take its possessor wherever he or she needs to go…’

Master thief, Fin, is unusual – when he’s out of sight, everyone forgets he exists! He needs to find his mother – the one person who might remember him.  

Schoolgirl, Marrill, boards a pirate ship in a car park and is carried off to another world. She needs to find her way home.  

Fin and Marrill are on a wild adventure to find the Map to Everywhere, but can they escape the Oracle – a dark and powerful wizard who seeks the map to fulfil a terrifying prophecy?  

51qtbyHMLUL__SX324_BO1,204,203,200_   When the magical waters of the Pirate Stream begin flooding Marrill’s world, she must return to the Stream and find the source of the mysterious Iron Tide. Reunited with her best friend Fin – who has been forgotten all over again – Marrill must make the treacherous trek to the impossible world of Monerva and uncover the secrets of its long-lost wish machine.  

Only there can Fin wish to finally be remembered. Only there can Marrill wish to save her world and the people she loves.  

But to get everything they’ve ever wanted, Marrill and Fin may have to give up on the most important thing they already have: each other.
