Semi-regular giveaway time!

It's that time again. Back in March, I did promise to hold semi-regular giveaways in which I give my readers the chance to read some of the incredible books that I get sent for review. I feel incredibly lucky and grateful that many UK publishers send me books - it's a really wonderful feeling. And I'd like to pass some of these books along and share some great books.

So, here are a few of the books that I've read recently for you to choose from:
(* denotes a British author, if you are taking part in Becky's British Books Challenge! Finished paperback copies unless otherwise stated, all gently read)

Montacute House by Lucy Jago*

In the Sea There Are Crocodiles by Fabio Geda (ARC)

Pride and Premiership by Michelle Gayle

Prisoner of the Inquisition by Theresa Breslin*

The Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa

It's Not Summer Without You by Jenny Han

The Truth About Celia Frost by Paula Rawsthorne (ARC)

Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton

Far From Home by Na'ima B. Robert*

An Act of Love by Alan Gibbons*

Mad Love by Suzanne Selfors

Duty Calls: Dunkirk by James Holland*

Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson
* (ARC)

I've really loved every single one of these books, and I'm really looking forward to sharing my thoughts about them in my (upcoming!) reviews. Particularly The Iron Daughter, The Truth About Celia Frost and Hunting Lila.

All you have to do is comment on this post, letting me know which book from the list above you would like to read and which email address would be the best way to contact you.

I will let choose a winner on the 30th of June.

No need to be a follower of this blog, though that is always appreciated! (please and thank you.)

Because these books are all in my possession already, this giveaway is open internationally.

Good luck!


  1. Great giveaway, thank you!

    I'd love Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson!


  2. Amazing giveaway!
    I would love to read Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton :)

  3. I have a feeling that I'll be getting Hunting Lila in future, so I'm going for Blood Magic. Thanks so much for the giveaway! I'm an old follower, anyway. ;)

    Some great books there - I'm really torn! But I'll have to go with Blood Magic by Tessa Gratton too - your review makes it look like a layered story which I like. :)


  5. I'm desperate to read An Act of Love so that would be my choice!

  6. Awesome giveaway! They a;; sound like great books, I wouldn't know which to choose! I'm reading the Iron Daughter right now.. Maybe Blood Magic, Its Not Summer Without You or Hunting Lila..

  7. I'd love Hunting Lila, I've had my eye on that book for ever! (maybe not but you know what I mean!)
    I love your giveaways! :D thank you very much for them!

  8. I would love to get my hands on either 'Hunting Lila' or 'The Truth About Celia Frost', I think it's really cool you want to share your book wealth :)

    It's a hard choice between Blood Magic and Hunting Lila. But I choose Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson. :D


  13. Wow, so many great books, it's so hard to choose, I'd love any of them to be honest, but I guess I'll say Hunting Lila, with Mad Love as my second choice, haha.

  27. Hey, just wanted to check and see if you ever picked a winner for this giveaway? Or did I just miss that post?

  28. Hi, sorry Becca, it turns out I'm quite lazy when it comes to announcing winners. I rarely do a special post about it, usually just email the winner. Which is what I did with this giveaway (It was Stephanie Burgis, who won my ARC copy of Hunting Lila!) But thanks for entering everyone! Look out for another semi-regular giveaway soon. I've acquired lots of fab books lately.


HI! Thank you for leaving a comment, you've just become my new best friend :)
