It is almost my birthday (April 17th) and today I have something awesome to offer you. In my three years of blogging I have never hosted a giveaway before, but today I'm going to change that! I still need to pinch myself, because I find it hard to believe that I can offer you this wonderful prize. And no, it is not an April fool's joke.
Last month I was approached by Sam Edes from Pan Macmillan. Author Naomi Novik suggested they had to get in touch with me about her upcoming book Uprooted. This book is described as "a bold, new world rooted in folk stories and legends, as elemental as a Grimm fairy tale" and it's mainly a Beauty and the beast retelling. It will be published May 19th and it sounds like a perfect book for me and my blog.
“Our Dragon doesn’t eat the girls he takes, no matter what stories they tell outside our valley. We hear them sometimes, from travelers passing through. They talk as though we were doing human sacrifice, and he were a real dragon. Of course that’s not true: he may be a wizard and immortal, but he’s still a man, and our fathers would band together and kill him if he wanted to eat one of us every ten years. He protects us against the Wood, and we’re grateful, but not that grateful.” Agnieszka loves her valley home, her quiet village, the forests and the bright shining river. But the corrupted Wood stands on the border, full of malevolent power, and its shadow lies over her life.Her people rely on the cold, driven wizard known only as the Dragon to keep its powers at bay. But he demands a terrible price for his help: one young woman handed over to serve him for ten years, a fate almost as terrible as falling to the Wood. The next choosing is fast approaching, and Agnieszka is afraid. She knows— everyone knows—that the Dragon will take Kasia: beautiful, graceful, brave Kasia, all the things Agnieszka isn’t, and her dearest friend in the world. And there is no way to save her. But Agnieszka fears the wrong things. For when the Dragon comes, it is not Kasia he will choose.I am happy to announce that I can offer you 50 (YES, FIFTY) ARC's provided by the publisher Pan Macmillan.
