Book Promo [#9] Giveaway for Runners (INT)

Today I need to tell you about a book which is really exciting... That might not be all but well, you'll see.



That trailer advertises Runners succinctly, but here's further details so you're not left wondering...

Runners
RELEASED... this week (7th/8th)!
Series: ý  

View all my reviews (because I really meant to review it for publication date*)!


Sharon Sant's debut novel, Runners is a futuristic novel with subtle dystopia which young adult readers who are looking beyond the Hunger Games will be compelled by.

   
Also available through Immanion Press (publishers), The Book DepositoryBarnes & NobleAmazon US (UK linked above) & ebook formats will be avaliable from ecopy retailers soon.
ELIJAH is nothing special. He’s just a skinny kid doing his best to stay one step ahead of starvation and the people who would have him locked away in a labour camp – just another Runner. But what he stumbles upon in a forest in Hampshire shows him that the harsh world he knows will become an even more sinister place, unless he can stop it. As past and present and parallel dimensions collide, freedom becomes the last thing on his mind as he is suddenly faced with a battle to save his world from extinction. But before Elijah can find the courage to be the hero the world needs, he must banish his own demons and learn to trust his friends. And all the while, the sinister figure of Maxwell Braithwaite looms, his path inextricably bound to Elijah’s by a long dead physicist, and hell bent on stopping Elijah, whatever the cost.

~Runners by Sharon Sant

Today it's not all talk of a book, if you want Runners all you need to do is jump through some hoops, which may include some free entries as I assume some of you are following this blog by now ;) You might not be of course in which case you know what to do to make me smile...
*Especially since I wasn't able to review it (I'm not even three quarters through), only host this giveaway. It's because I've been so busy, school work (I even got PE homework this week!), rehearsals & it goes on. I just feel so... annoyed. But as long as you guys don't mind? :L


Have a great weekend & good luck in the giveaway!

The mention of The Hunger Games makes me want to read this book immediately, as well as the description! :D

I love dystopia but what makes this one standout is
1. Its English
2. Its a standalone, a refreshing change from all the series out there
3. Sharon wrote it and I loved her writing in Sky Song :-)

Becca said...

Love the site I am following. Check out my book blog at http://bsreviewers and follow if you like :) We also have a giveaway going on too!

I think if this is like The Hunger Games, I would definitely enjoy it.

I loved reading Sky Song, so I know that I'll love Runners!

@Rita: I thought I'd need a GIF for my reaction but let's just say, The Voice UK: Sneaky Willy.

@Kim: Thanks Kim! I'm glad you're interested (:

@Trish: Apparently I'm the first to prefer Sky Song to Runners. I still obviously liked Runners quite a large amount but Sky Song just cut it. So glad you've entered too.

@Becca: Giveaways FTW :L I will do that, thanks for stopping by (:

@Jackie: I bet you would! :D Thanks for stopping by. Thanks for following via email- it means a ton.

@Erin: As I said to Trish, odds are in your favour! Ooh, you're my fifth email subscriber! *cheers* Thanks Erin (:
