The Maze Runner Blog Tour: SIGNED BOOK GIVEAWAY

Martyn Pig stg2One day to go! It’s the 9th of October – Which means that tomorrow The Maze Runner is officially released in the UK! Today’s blog post is an exciting blog tour one, celebrating the movie’s release.

I read The Maze Runner at the beginning of 2013, and I loved every fast-paced, thrilling second of it. It was such a great book! I loved the mysterious world of the Glade – it interested and terrified me (as did the rest of the trilogy later on in the year…). The main thing I loved about the book, though, was all of the characters. Thomas was such a great protagonist, and I loved reading about the Lord of the Flies-esque community of Gladers too. You can read my review from last year by clicking here.

I can’t wait to see the book brought to life on the big screen. I’m a little nervous because so many YA novels are being adapted – but I’m a big Teen Wolf fan and love Dylan O’Brien’s acting in that… I think he’ll make a brilliant Thomas!:D View the trailer for the movie by clicking here, if you haven’t seen it yet! It looks awesome and the Glade is exactly the way I imagined it when I read it.

New Books! #41… Also, Nerdfighter stuff :)


S0, this week’s haul is exciting 😀 There was a lot of squealing. Also, I’m taking photos of my books now instead of using the book jackets from Goodreads, because Hawwa’s book photography tutorial is awesome and even though my photos are awful compared to hers, especially the last one I took in a rush this morning, they look nicer than my rushed Picmonkey collages (Or, so I’m hoping)!


The Gospel of Loki by Joanne M. Harris: *dances* I’ve been looking forward to finding a copy of this for a couple of months now! I was in the lovely London Forbidden Planet on Monday, looking at the Sci-Fi/Fantasy charts, and saw it was number one. The hardback was so pretty, so I picked a copy off the shelves, then looked closer and saw it was signed. There was much squealing and jumping up and down and people-looking-at-me-weirdly. But I don’t care, I have a copy now! Yay! I’m so excited.


Daughters of Time by the History Girls: This came through the letterbox on Thursday… and the copy is so gorgeous! I’m looking forward to starting it; Daughters of Time is all about the women in History who’ve shaped today’s world. I’ll also be participating in the blog tour, very soon, so keep an eye out! thanks to Templar for sending this to me.

The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer: This looks and sounds amazing. I’ve definitely seen the cover around, but I’ve never actually had a proper look at the book before. After hearing and reading about its Costa book awards win, I decided I’d buy a copy, to see what it’s like. I read the blurb in the store and was just… wow-ed. I think this is going to be amazing.


The Blackhart Legacy, #1: Banished by Liz de Jager: I can’t even put into words how excited I am for this! I’ve been waiting for ages to be able to read it; pretty much since I found out the lovely Liz had gotten a book deal, months ago. The cover’s absolutely stunning, and the first two chapters are too- they’re on Tor’s blog. I’m completely ditching the TBR pile for this: I’ve already started it, and I’m loving it. Definitely worth the waiting for!

RUN by Gregg Olsen: I received this from the lovely people at Newbooks magazine, so thanks, you lovely people! I love the magazine, which comes out every month, and I’m really excited to get the chance to review in it, starting with Run… and hopefully getting to review future titles for them, too! 😀 Run sounds brilliant; like a really gritty, thrilling crime book, so I’m positive I’ll enjoy it. It’s from Hot Key, and I don’t think they’ve released any/many crime books yet, so I’m eager to see what this one’s about.

Extra thing I’m going to randomly add onto the end of this post: A lot of you probably know I’m an avid nerdfighter, a lot of book bloggers are! Especially Lucy, who’s the blogger and booktuber behind Queen of Contemporary. She’s hosting a Nerdfighter Month very soon, with lots of videos and a readathon of John Green’s books, and loads more awesomeness! Get the word out, people of the internet, this is going to be awesome. Dftba, of course. 😀 Here’s the introductory announcement video, which doesn’t seen to embed into this post, for some reason:
