Bloggoversary Giveaway Part 1 - Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini

 It has now been over three years since I started this blog.
I originally made it to promote the release of my debut novel but then I started posting reviews and signing up for book blitzes and blog tours.
I have enjoyed getting to know other bloggers and being a book blogger (despite the sometime dramas). Organising blog posts can get a bit tedious sometimes but overall I enjoy blogging.

Anyway onto the first giveaway (there will be three!) . . .

I'm giving away a UK paperback of Trial by Fire by Josephine Angelini.

Blurb from Goodreads:

Love burns. Worlds collide. Magic reigns.

This world is trying to kill Lily Proctor. Her life-threatening allergies keep her from enjoying many of the experiences that other teenagers take for granted...which is why she is determined to enjoy her first (and perhaps only) high-school party. But Lily's life never goes according to plan, and after a humiliating incident in front of half her graduating class Lily wishes she could just disappear.

Suddenly Lily is in a different Salem - one overrun with horrifying creatures and ruled by powerful women called Crucibles. Strongest and cruellest of all the Crucibles is Lillian . . . Lily's identical other self in this alternate universe. This new version of her world is terrifyingly sensual, and Lily is soon overwhelmed by new experiences.

Lily realizes that what makes her weak at home is exactly what makes her extraordinary in New Salem. It also puts her life in danger. Thrown into a world she doesn't understand, Lily is torn between responsibilities she can't hope to shoulder alone, and a love she never expected.

But how can Lily be the saviour of this world when she is literally her own worst enemy?

I originally bought this before reading the e-arc I'd been given certain that I would love it after really enjoying the Starcrossed trilogy. Unfortunately I didn't like Trial by Fire as much as I thought and I'd like to give the paperback a good home.
It's never been read and is in perfect condition.

Open internationally!
