UK ONLY Giveaway: Legend by Marie Lu!

So, I actually have something else scheduled to be posted today, but it's 23:20, I'm tired, and I've just got back from seeing The Hunger Games and not in the mood to write a whole blog post, so I thought I'd put up a giveaway, because I haven't done one for agessss... So, in honour of The Hunger Games movie being released today (you have to see it, ASAP!!), I'm giving away a UK proof copy of Legend by Marie Lu - another fantastic YA dystopian!* *Open to UK RESIDENTS ONLY*

Legend (Legend, #1)The United States is gone, along with its flooded coasts. North America's two warring nations, the western Republic and the eastern Colonies, have reached a breaking point. In the midst of this broken continent and dark new world are two teenagers who will go down in history....

Born into the slums of Los Angeles, fifteen-year old Day is the country's most wanted criminal. A mysterious boy with no recorded image or fingerprints. A boy who should no longer exist. A boy who watches over his family until one evening, when the plague patrols mark his family's door with an X--the sign of plague infection. A death sentence for any family too poor to afford the antidote. Desperate, Day has no choice; he must steal it.

Born to an elite family in Los Angeles' wealthy Ruby sector, fifteen-year old June is the Republic's most promising prodigy. A superintelligent girl destined for great things in the country's highest military circles. Obedient, passionate, and committed to her country--until the day her brother Metias is murdered while on patrol during a break-in at the plague hospital.

Only one person could be responsible.

Day.

And now it's June's mission to hunt him down.

The truth they'll uncover will become legend.

*It doesn't have the cover pictured above - it is a proof copy so it doesn't have a cover - just some writing and the Legend logo (it's a very nice proof ;D )

If you've not heard of Legend, it's a really good 2012 debut dystopian. You can find out more about it here on Goodreads, or read my review here :)

So, are you interested? If you live in the UK, you can enter in the Rafflecopter form below! :D

  1. Favourite dystopian has to be the Hunger Games (the book rather than the entire series due to my disappointment with Mockingjay...)

    Great competition, Legend looks fab and it's brilliant to have a UK only giveaway!

  6. Sorry to be boring and also say Hunger Games. I'm trying to find another series I loved as much. I did enjoy Divergent also though.

  7. My favourite? I've only read two!!! Haha. I read 1984 and The Handmaid's Tale as well which were both wonderful but they aren't YA in the slightest. Soo Hunger Games and Glow, hardly fair, is it? ;) Hunger Games! I seem to be COLLECTING YA dystopian at the moment.. purely because I ADORE dystopia and haven't had chance to read any of it yet. /flail! Love it though. Definitely a favourite genre!!
    I do, however, have a couple on my shelf for review so perhaps I'll have time to fix that now, yay! :D

#readFreshers: BACK TO CAMPUS

Hey guys! Welcome to my stop on the Freshers blog tour. This book is hilarious and so much fun and I'm so excited to have Tom and Lucy on the blog today!



Here's Tom and Lucy's offering for today!
As soon as we started writing FRESHERS, we knew we wanted to go back to York university.  We spent three years there between 2001-2004 (Lucy) and 2002-2005 (Tom), and we knew that if we wanted to write a realistic campus novel, we had to go back to the campus we'd once called home. So, back in February 2016, we did. Here's a photo of Lucy reminiscing outside the big central hall building (which features quite a bit in FRESHERS). 


While we were on campus, we managed to sneak into our old corridors and have a look around, and it was comforting (and horrifying) to find out that students today are still as gross as we were back in 2001/2002. The corridors were sticky and smelly, and the kitchens were basically pasta-sauce-spattered bomb sites. We also spoke to as many genuine …

Synopsis from Goodreads:It's hard to keep close a person everyone keeps telling you is gone.

It's been sixty-five painful days since the death of Juniper's big sister, Camilla. On her first day back at school, bracing herself for the stares and whispers, Juniper borrows Camie's handbag for luck - and discovers an unsent break-up letter inside. It's mysteriously addressed to 'You' and dated July 4th - the day of Camie's accident. Desperate to learn the identity of Camie's secret love, Juniper starts to investigate.

But then she loses something herself. A card from her daily ritual, The Happiness Index: little notecards on which she rates the day. The Index has been holding Juniper together since Camie's death - but without this card, there's a hole. And this particular card …
