Birthday Giveaway (UK and INT)

Let me let you on a little secret* ... today is my birthday. (*not a secret at all, in fact!) And to celebrate the 31st anniversary of my birth, I've decided to host a little giveaway today.

I'm really sorry for my absence of late.  It's been a horrible mixture of exhaustion, too much pressure with my uni course, lethargy due to the heat and a death in the family.  I'm hoping that in a few week's time, I might feel up to blogging again. We shall see.

But enough of that. Here are the books up for grabs.  There will be a UK only giveaway in which one winner will get to choose 4-5 books from the two photos below. All are UKYA (or MG) in 2013...

Smuggler's Kiss by Marie-Louise Jensen (ARC)
Killing Rachel by Anne Cassidy
Follow Me Down by Tanya Byrne (ARC)
The Disappeared by CJ Harper
Kite Spirit by Sita Brahmachari
Scissors, Sisters and Manic Panics by Ellie Phillips
The Bunker Diary by Kevin Brooks
The Hit by Melvin Burgess (ARC)
OMG! Is This Actually My Life by Rae Earl (ARC)
The Drowning by Rachel Ward
Burning Bright by Sophie McKenzie
The Night Itself by Zoe Marriott (ARC)
Black Sheep by Na'ima B. Robert
Waiting For Gonzo by Dave Cousins (ARC)
The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna
Hidden Among Us by Katy Moran

Spy for the Queen of Scots by Theresa Breslin

And for you international readers, you can win this signed copy of The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater! 

To enter either of the giveaways (or both!) just leave a 'PICK ME' comment below plus some way of getting in contact with you (email address or Twitter ID!) Also let me know which giveaway you are entering.  I will contact the UK giveaway winner to

That's it.  Good luck! Winners will be chosen in 7 days.

(While I have you here, I would love for you to 'like' the Fluttering Butterflies Facebook Page? You don't have to, it will not impact your chances of winning the giveaways at all. Just if you'd like.)


  1. Happy Birthday, Michelle :) Don't worry about not posting, there's still plenty of great reviews and more on here for people to browse through til you're back on your feet again. Hope weather is nicer where you are! - we've had mega thunder/lightning storms for last 3hrs and still pouring down, dog is terrified :(

    Thank you for this giveaway

  4. Happy birthday, Clover! Hope you're having a really lovely day :)

    Thank you for the giveaway! I've just been thinking of which books I'd choose if I won but it's hard to pick with so much choice! Rose Under Fire would definitely be one, though ;) My twitter name is @The_BookNook.

    Don't worry about not blogging recently (I haven't been either - the weather is too nice at the moment for me to be indoors all the time). Things sound like they've been stressy for you recently but hopefully you'll have a nice summer holiday xx

  5. Happy birthday :) Hope you have a lovely day, and that you feel better soon.

    I'm in the UK, and would love to enter! I'm on Twitter - @bibliotekit_kit


  6. Happy birthday, Clover! I hope you have a lovely day. x

  7. Happy Birthday! Hope you're having a good day. Though obviously we've missed you around but you've still left posts for us so don't feel guilty! THE BUNKER DIARY. I'm so excited to read this! Not sure what others I would pick if I won (fingers crossed) as they are all excellent choices! :-)

  8. Happy birthday Clover!
    What a wonderful giveaway, thank you for sharing it with us! <3
    Take your time with coming back to blogging, real life sometimes has to take priority.

  9. Pick me please :) @liveotherwise uk

  10. Happy Birthday! Hope you had a wonderful day even if its still hot!

    Thanks for a wonderful giveaway, :-)

  11. Happy Birthday! It's very kind of you to be giving away stuff rather than the other way around.

    I'm in the UK, and can be found on twitter @thisandyou


    It is very kind of you to do this giveaway!

  13. Happy Birthday! Thank you for the amazing giveaway!

    I'm in the UK and am on twitter as @readandrepeat

  14. I'm not entering the giveaway I just dropped by to wish you a (belated) happy birthday! I'm sorry the last few weeks haven't been great for you & hope you had a fab day yesterday with your boys all spoiling you! I also hope that things start to get better soon :-) Hugs x

  15. Happy Birthday Clover, hope you had a lovely, lovely day especially with the BEAUTIFUL weather (although we had a thunderstorm yesterday morning in London so maybe it wasn't so beautiful). I'm really sorry to hear that you've had a bad time in the last few weeks and I'm incredibly sorry to hear you had a death in the family. I did too a few months ago so I know how you may be feeling. Family and your own life is so much more important than blogging, so don't be sorry!

    This is a great giveaway, and so many books I - and obviously many others - have had an eye on in the last few months. Happy birthday again!
