Giveaway Four


The wonderful people at Hot Key have given me 6 fab YA titles to giveaway (which I am going to run separate giveaways with the exception of one)

They are all finished copies and not only that they are all SIGNED COPIES!




















A huge thank you to Rosi at Hot Key Books for these books!

Prize One – 1 x Signed The Disreputable History Of Frankie Landau Banks by E Lockhart


“As a girl, Frankie knows she is supposed to play by the rules, but the rules were made by Old Boys for boys and therefore are not her rules to begin with.” – THE NEW YORK TIMES So Frankie Landau-Banks decides to take matters into her own hands, outsmarting the secret all-male society at her rich kid boarding school by tricking the members, including her own boyfriend, into believing her increasingly outrageous commands are their leader’s. Undaunted by her male peers, Frankie contests the old-fashioned idea that it’s the boys who rule the school proving that girls are not to be dismissed – even by her own father, a former member of the all-male society himself!

Prize Two – 1 x Signed The Elites and 1 x Signed The Memory Keeper by Natasha Ngan (both books as a set) 51ggzzIvhQL__SX324_BO1,204,203,200_ ‘There is a rumour that the Elites don’t bleed.’ Hundreds of years into the future, wars, riots, resource crises and rising sea-levels have destroyed the old civilisations. Only one city has survived: Neo-Babel, a city full of cultures – and racial tension. Fifteen-year-old Silver is an Elite, a citizen of Neo-Babel chosen to guard the city due to her superior DNA. She’d never dream of leaving – but then she fails to prevent the assassination of Neo Babel’s president, setting off a chain of events more shocking and devastating than she could ever have imagined. Forced to flee the city with her best friend Butterfly (a boy with genetically-enhanced wings), Silver will have to fight to find her family, uncover the truth about Neo-Babel and come to terms with her complicated feelings for Butterfly.   51ioKRlZn8L__SX324_BO1,204,203,200_  Seven is a thief with a difference – he steals downloadable memories from banks and memoriums to sell onto London’s black market, trading secrets and hidden pasts for a chance at a future of his own. He makes sure he keeps some special stuff back to ‘surf’ himself though – it’s the only real form of entertainment he can afford. But one night, as Seven is breaking into a private memorium in a wealthy part of London, he is caught in the act by one of its residents; Alba, the teenage daughter of London’s most famous criminal prosecutor. Instead of giving him away, Alba promises to keep Seven’s secret – as long as he allows her to go memory-surfing herself. In doing so, they discover a hidden memory about Seven’s past, revealing a shocking secret about Seven’s childhood, the government and a mysterious experiment known as The Memory Keepers…Now Seven and Alba will have to race against time to unlock the maze of The Memory Keepers – but can they keep themselves out of harm’s way before the London Guard – and Alba’s father – catches up with them?

Prize Three – 1 x Signed The Head Of The Saint by Socorro Acioli  (Hardback)

51wkdg63cHL__SX324_BO1,204,203,200_ After walking for days across the harsh Brazilian landscape only to be rejected by his last living relative, Samuel finds his options for survival are dwindling fast – until he comes to the hollow head of a statue, perfect for a boy to crawl into and hide…Whilst sheltering, Samuel realises that he can hear the villagers’ whispered prayers to Saint Anthony – confessing lost loves, hopes and fears – and he begins to wonder if he ought to help them out a little. When Samuel’s advice hits the mark he becomes famous, and people flock to the town to hear about their future loves. But with all the fame comes some problems, and soon Samuel has more than just the lovelorn to deal with. It is a completely charming and magically told Brazilian tale, sure to capture your heart.

Prize 4 – 1 x Signed All The Truth That’s In Me by Julie Berry   (Hardback)   51VfKT-U8HL__SX324_BO1,204,203,200_   All the Truth That’s in Me is many things. It is a true romance, a story of desperate yearning and unrequited love. It’s a page-turning mystery full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very end. But most of all it’s an empowering drama about a girl’s journey from victim to hero.

Prize 5 – 1 x Signed Counting Stars by Keris Stainton   515vv6+U8uL__SX324_BO1,204,203,200_ When eighteen-year-old Anna leaves school and moves to Liverpool, she feels like her life is finally beginning. She’s landed her dream job at a theatre, and she’s moving into an exciting (if not slightly run-down) houseshare on a buzzing street lined with shops, bars, and buskers. Best of all, her new flatmates are kind, welcoming and a lot of fun – what more could she ask for? But her new life is also a little overwhelming. Anna’s job quickly falls through, and then she realises that although her new friends are great, they’re also a little mixed-up… and it’s not long before Anna starts using her blog to talk about her experiences, from the hilarious to the ridiculous to the little-bit-scary. But when Anna spills a bigger secret than she can handle, suddenly the consequences are all too real. She’ll have to prove she has the mettle to make it in the big city, or risk losing everything she thinks she wants.
