World Book Night Giveaway!!

Hey guys! I'm hosting a giveaway for World Book Night. It starts today, on World Book Night, and finishes on Tuesday the 8th of May at Midnight (GMT).

I will be giving away two copies of I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith and the first place winner will get a copy of Insurgent by Veronica Roth as well which I will be buying out of my own pocket.

You must be a follower to participate in the giveaway as well as be able to have a book shipped from the book depository and of course either be old enough to give me your address (of legal age in your country) or have your parents permission to do so.

If you have all of that just fill out the Rafflecopter form below and of course there are ways to get extra entries. If you win you will have 48 hours to respond before I pick another winner.

Hope you are having a great World Book Night.

So what is World Book Night?

Enter my giveaway for World Book Night here

"Now in its second year, World Book Night 2012 will take place on the 23rd April, UNESCO’s International Day of the Book and Shakespeare’s birthday.

World Book Night is an industry-wide initiative launched in 2011 and will see one million free books given away by passionate readers to other members of the public across the UK and Ireland.

Members of the public were invited to apply to be one of the 20,000 book-givers and those selected are passionate readers who enjoy recommending a book they love to other readers. They are also encouraged to pass the books on to those who may be reluctant readers or who are part of communities with less access to books, bookshops and libraries. In total, 480,000 books will be distributed by givers. The remaining 520,000 will be distributed directly to prisons, libraries, hospitals and other places where books are not readily available, through World Book Night’s charitable partners. For further information visit"

In simple terms, World Book Night is a day where people who signed up to be book givers distribute 24 copies of a book they chose from a list of 25 books selected by public vote. These books can be distributed to anyone but the aim is to get at least a few to people who do not read as often in an attempt to encourage them to do so.

In My Mailbox (2) World Book Night

So it's World Book Night on Monday and it's my job to hand out these lovely books to 24 lucky people who don't read much, however I'm thinking about having a giveaway for two of my lovely readers to snag a copy each as a chance to see how far we can get these books.

Immortal City by Scott Speer

“Jackson Godspeed is the hottest young Angel in a city filled with them. He's days away from becoming a full Guardian, and people around the world are already competing for the chance to be watched over by him. Everyone's obsessed with the Angels and the lucky people they protect--everyone except for Madison Montgomery.

Maddy's the one girl in Angel City who doesn't breathlessly follow the Angels on TV and gossip blogs. When she meets Jackson, she doesn't recognize him. But Jackson is instantly captivated by her, and against all odds the two fall in love” From Goodreads.

I was lucky enough to win an ARC of this book, which may be coming out as a television show or a movie sometime in the future.

Switched by Amanda Hocking

When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. It isn't until eleven years later that Wendy finds out her mother might've been telling the truth. With the help of Finn Holmes, Wendy finds herself in a world she never knew existed - and it's one she's not sure if she wants to be a part of…” From Goodreads

So… I’ll whole heartedly admit that this is another case of the book cover being too good to walk away from; seriously this book has haunted me for months because of how pretty the book cover is. And when I found it in a charity shop for £2.50 and it looked like it had never even been read I couldn’t resist. Wendy Everly is 17 years old and a bit of an outcast. She’s never really fit in anywhere, not even her own family. And let me tell you before I write this review that I actually liked the book. I liked it even though I know I shouldn’t, but this review is mainly going to air my bad opinions of it.
