GIVEAWAY || August New Releases

Hi everyone! I’ve decided to participate in a giveaway hop for August which is celebrating the new releases coming out – and guess what?! That’s right! I’m running a giveaway, so one lucky winner will receive a copy of one of the following titles!

The New Release Giveaway Hop is being hosted by the lovely Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight so you should head over to her website and see all the other people participating (because there are more giveaways there) and also have a read of Shannon’s blog because it is spec-tac-uuu-lar.

This giveaway is international but you must make sure The Book Depository ships to you (and they ship to most countries!). There are some amazing books coming out in August and I will be giving away one of the following books:

by Tahereh Mafi

There are only three things that matter to twelve-year-old Alice Alexis Queensmeadow: Mother, who wouldn’t miss her; magic and color, which seem to elude her; and Father, who always loved her. The day Father disappears from Ferenwood he takes nothing but a ruler with him. But it’s been almost three years since then, and Alice is determined to find him. She loves her father even more than she loves adventure, and she’s about to embark on one to find the other.
But bringing Father home is no small matter. In order to find him she’ll have to travel through the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, where down can be up, paper is alive, and left can be both right and very, very wrong. Her only companion is a boy named Oliver whose own magical ability is based in lies and deceit–and with a liar by her side in a land where nothing is as it seems, it will take all of Alice’s wits (and every limb she’s got) to find Father and return home to Ferenwood in one piece. On her quest to find Father, Alice must first find herself–and hold fast to the magic of love in the face of loss.

The 2nd book in the Reawakened series

Lily Young thought traveling across the globe with a reawakened sun prince was a grand adventure. Now she’s about to embark on the journey of a lifetime.
[…continued on Goodreads, contains spoilers for Reawakened]


It Ends With Us
by Colleen Hoover

Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.
Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.
As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan—her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.


It’s All Fun and Games
by Dave Barrett

When Allison’s best friend, TJ, convinces her to come along for an epic game of LARP (live-action role-playing), she reluctantly agrees despite her reservations about the geeky pastime. TJ’s weekends are filled with powerful wizardry, mystical creatures, and intense battles with his LARP group. Each adventure is full of surprises, but the goal is always the same: to defeat the monsters and find the treasure.
Not long after their quest begins, the friends discover that something has gone wrong. The fantasy world they’ve built has transformed, and the battle they’re in the midst of is no longer make-believe.
Now they must fight for survival against brigands, kobolds, and other deadly mythical creatures that come to life. Fortunately, the group’s once-fictional magical powers have also become real – including Allison’s newly acquired gifts as a healer. They’ll need everything in their arsenal if they hope to make it home alive. 

This giveaway will be open from the 14th to the 31st of August and to enter you need only enter through the Rafflecopter link below. The winner will be selected at random and I will contact them to ask their choice of book and their address, so you must be willing to give me you address to enter – I promise I will use it only for the purpose of sending you one of these shiny goodies!

THE WINNER IS: Alisha @BethAndNoah – congrats!! Enjoy It Ends with Us!

  1. Ah! I’ve liked a lot of books I’ve read this year! I loved “The Heir” by Kiera Cass and “Ravishing the Heiress” by Sherry Thomas.

    1. It’s been such a fantastic year for books I feel! 😍 I’m planning on marathoning the Selection series to catch up! And I hadn’t even heard of the other book so excuse me whilst I go look that up right now.



    The best book I’ve read this year HAS to be The Book Thief; even though I’m super behind the bandwagon (sorry fellow bookish people), I’m so glad I was late rather than obstinate! DEATH YOU WERE A BEAUTIFUL NARRATOR.

    I’m most looking forward to Replica by Lauren Oliver, who has definitely become a guilty-pleasure author, and an instant-buy for me.

    1. *accepts gifts from peasants* thank you, thank you.

      Ahem. Don’t even get me started on how good The Book Thief is. Even if it does completely shatter my heart every damn time. 😭😭😭

      I have to admit I have a love hate relationship with Oliver though – her books have caused me no ends of anger with their … interesting endings 😾

  3. Oh goodness, the dreaded, what is your top book question! I think I have to say it is a tie between The Kiss of Deception and The Winner’s Kiss (oddly enough they both have kiss in the title, go figure!).

  6. I’ve read so many great books this year! I think it’s a tie between A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas and Ensnared by A. G. Howard. I loved both books so much! They were amazing!
