First Giveaway!

Hi everyone! So here I go doing my first blog giveaway (UK ONLY) so I hope you all enter to be in for a chance to win a paperback copy of The Scorpio Races. I know this book has been out for ages and possibly everyone has read it but I have a copy of it that I feel should be given to someone who wants to read it instead of sitting on my bookshelf unread. I wouldn't think of doing a giveaway with a book I haven't read or even a book that I tried to read and just couldn't get into (!) but its a brand new copy that should be read by someone who really really really wants to read it! Here's the blurb of Maggie Stiefvater's The Scorpio Races:

It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line. Some riders live. Others die.

At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.

Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn’t given her much of a chance. So she enters the competition — the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.

All you have to do to enter is fill in the Rafflecopter form below. Sadly I can only do a UK giveaway at the moment due to lack of funds but will try and do an International one asap. Good luck!
