200 Follower Giveaway! Hardback Copy of the Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare! UK ONLY!

Hello! Lost in Thought has reached 200 followers! I'm so so happy about it and so grateful to you all, my lovely followers for helping me reach this little milestone :) To say thank you to you all I'm giving all my UK followers the chance to win a hardback copy of Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1) by Cassandra Clare. 

I bought this book quite a few months ago now brand new after hearing so much good stuff about the series but after having a little sorting out and reading the blurb again I realised it just isn't for me and would love to give it to a loving home :) It is brand new and the only thing wrong with it is that it is marked with a black marker pen on the bottom of the pages (not every page, it is visible when the book is closed) so just to give you all a heads up before you enter. 

So the terms and conditions are that you have to be a follower of my blog (I will double check) and live in the UK. All you have to do to enter is fill in the rafflecopter form below. The giveaway is open for a week and I will announce and contact the winner giving them 48 hours to reply before choosing another. I apologise to all my lovely international followers that this giveaway isn't open to you, but I promise to do one for you all soon :) Here's the blurb for Clockwork Angel below:


Magic is dangerous—but love is more dangerous still.

When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What’s more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.

Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length . . . everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world. . . . and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.
Thank you all for helping my blog reach 200 followers! You are all amazing :)

  5. My favourite book of the year so far is probably either Insurgent by Veronica Roth because it's such a vivid dystopian world, or City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare, because it was so beautifully written.

  17. I really loved Resolution by Denise Mina. I only came across Denise Mina last year and this was the third book in the Garnethill trilogy. It really was a crime novel that wasn't easy to put down.

  18. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn - really unusual story and creepy because you can imagine it really happening.
