Exams are over - so time for a giveaway!

I've finished my exams! My first year of uni is officially over. This exam period has probably been the most stressful exam period I've ever experienced and you cannot understand the relief I feel that I no longer have to stay up all night trying to cram cases and remember what the mens rea of some offence is. I am SO happy. I probably failed all my exams and will have to retake the year, BUT I AM FINALLY FREE. So to celebrate I'm hosting just a little giveaway which will run for a week. You have the chance to win a book that I read a few months ago and really enjoyed - Insignia! The sequel is out soon so you can catch up before release. Good luck! Open to anywhere The Book Depository ships. Giveaway ends Friday 7th June 2013. Fill in the form below the book description to enter.

Side note: I know I have been terrible at commenting. I will be commenting more now I am not drowning in revision.

Find it on Goodreads

More than anything, Tom Raines wants to be important, though his shadowy life is anything but that. For years, Tom’s drifted from casino to casino with his unlucky gambler of a dad, gaming for their survival. Keeping a roof over their heads depends on a careful combination of skill, luck, con artistry, and staying invisible.

Then one day, Tom stops being invisible. Someone’s been watching his virtual-reality prowess, and he’s offered the incredible—a place at the Pentagonal Spire, an elite military academy. There, Tom’s instincts for combat will be put to the test, and if he passes, he’ll become a member of the Intrasolar Forces, helping to lead his country to victory in World War Three. Finally, he’ll be someone important: a superhuman war machine with the tech skills that every virtual-reality warrior dreams of. Life at the Spire holds everything that Tom’s always wanted—friends, the possibility of a girlfriend, and a life where his every action matters—but what will it cost him?

Gripping and provocative, S. J. Kincaid’s futuristic thrill ride of a debut crackles with memorable characters, tremendous wit, and a vision of the future that asks startling, timely questions about the melding of humanity and technology.
