Daughter of Smoke and Bone Giveaway!

To celebrate the release of Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, which came out in the UK yesterday, the lovely people at Hodder have sent me one hardback copy to giveaway! So if you want the chance to win this amazing book (and if you need convincing - here's my gushing review), then simply fill out the form below!

Giveaway rules:
- Open to UK only
- Must be aged 13 or over
- Ends Monday 3rd October
- Following/spreading the word is not necessary, but is appreciated!

And to get you even more excited, here's the final DoSaB trailer, introducing Karou's best friend Zuzana:

Good luck to everyone who enters!
NOTE: Recently, I've noticed my giveaways have been posted on a few strange sites, such as moneysavingexperts and some others too. I would appreciate if the person/people linking my blog to these sites would refrain from doing so, because first of all, I don't like being linked to odd places (especially I haven't even been told about it), and second, my giveaways are aimed at book lovers and people who enjoy reading. This is a YA book blog, and so I generally assume people enter the giveaways here because they genuinely want to read the book being offered. However, I've been getting a lot of random entries lately (some people have entered giveaways offering a certain selection of books, and yet have asked to win books not listed, and that have never even been mentioned on this blog before - from the top of my head, I can think of one person who entered to win a science textbook I've never heard of) and I'm having a hard time figuring who is serious about reading the book being given away, and who wants it just because it's free, or because they've misunderstood what the contest is about as they've been re-directed to my blog from a completely unrelated website. Maybe I'm being too picky, but I prefer entrants to at least have some interest in books and maybe the YA genre before they enter a giveaway on my blog, instead of entering for a book not on offer/a book they have never heard and have no real interest in, and aren't even sure they'll read - just because. And if you bothered to read this all - thanks for listening :).


  1. yay, lucky us! :) Thank you for such an amazing opportunity :)
    As for someone entering you contests in moneysavingexperts - it's a legit UK website, so don't worry too much about it. They offer advice on debt and freebies, and I assume someone just put your contest into freebies. I found one of mine there too, but I didn't get weird entries, some weird and wonderful people must have seen it and decided to get whatever they can. Plenty of such fish on the web...

  2. ^^Ooh, thanks for letting me know! I've been a bit worried because I've been getting some veery odd entries. I'm fine with being linked to book giveaway sites and such, but I get nervous otherwise :P. And thanks for entering! :)

  3. YAY GIVEAWAYS! I hope some fabulous UK person enters and adores the book ;)

    That is so weird about the textbook entry... why would you buy someone an expensive textbook on a YA book review site? o.O Honestly.

  4. YOU LUCKY BRITISH SCHMUCKS! Goooo enter! Go, go, go, go, go! This is such an amazing book and if you think winning a science textbook is more exciting than angels and chimeara, you're bonkers (SEE, LIZ. BONKERS. I'M TOTALLY BRITISH. I'm also tired, soo... I'm gonna go now.)

    Good luck you UK-ians!

  5. THANKS FOR THE GIVEAWAY! I want to read this so much!
