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

REVIEW: It's A Wrap by Perdita and Honor Cargill

Good morning! I have finally finished my degree (woohoo!) and so I (should) have all the time in the world for reading and blogging now! Here's a review of the final book in a series that I always love to read when I'm revising...  Read on for why I enjoyed this so much!  Title:  It's A Wrap  Author:  Perdita and Honor Cargill Series:   Waiting For Callback, #3 Pages:   351 Publisher:  Simon and Schuster Date of Publication:  31st May, 2018 Source:  Author Synopsis from Goodreads: Elektra James is back and her life is more hilariously chaotic than ever! Elektra is hoping for BIG things this year... She's finished her first feature film (even if her character was unexpectedly killed off half-way through filming), hosted the party of the year (well, before her mum arrived and threw everyone out - how embarrassing!) and managed to become Archie Mortimer's Actual Real Life girlfriend (for now anyway...), so things are most definitely moving in t
