100 Followers? GIVEAWAY TIME!

Hooray for 100 followers!!! To celebrate, I'm hosting a giveaway... but not just any giveaway!


Miss Cole's Great British YA Giveaway!

2012 is a big year in Great Britain, and what could be a better giveaway than four of my favourite YA books by British authors? Four lucky winners will have the opportunity to choose one of the following:

Rest assured your copies will be newer and less well-read

Northern Lights: My favourite book of all time.
Stormbreaker: Hard to believe we first met Alex Rider, teenage superspy, back in 2000.  I read it in one go.  Exciting stuff!
Silverfin: The first of Charlie Higson's suberb Young Bond series.  Set in the 1930s, this introduction to James Bond quietly builds into a thrilling adventure.  And the new cover art is so cool!
The Enemy: The first in Charlie Higson's zombie series.  The second book is my favourite thus far, but this book twists, turns and scares.

As all four of these aren't stand-alones, if you want a book later in the series, I'll send it your way.

So, rules!

1) I am willing to post anywhere on Earth.
2) The giveaway will run until May 4th 2012, 11:59PM GMT.  Winners will be announced on May 5th.
3) The competition is open to all followers of the blog, new and old.
4) For an extra shot at winning, you can blog/tweet/Facebook the giveaway - remember to post a link here!
5) For an extra extra shot, share your favourite song by a British singer/band.

Good luck!


  1. Cool giveaway! There are tons of songs I like by British bands, being an ex-Brit, but I don't know there's one I would call my favourite. Among my favourites: "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen, "Oliver's Army" by Elvis Costello and the Attractions, anything by Buggles ("Video Killed the Radio Star" etc.), "Senses Working Overtime" by XTC... and the list goes on!

    And CONGRATULATIONS on reaching 100 followers! Here's to 10x that many by next year. :)

  2. Congratulations!

    My favorite song by a British singer/band? Oh man, most of my favorite bands are British. I've have to go with Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. Gets me every time.

  3. Big congrats on reaching 100 followers!

    A favorite song by a British band? Just one? Are you out of your mind? Um, okay, after checking the ipod and taking out my fav non-Brit songs, the song I apparently play the most is Train in Vain by The Clash.

  4. Congratulations! I've tweeted the link https://twitter.com/#!/RobinKateMoran and now I have to chose one awesome song? There's so many I like. Okay, for extra Britishness I'll go with Anarchy in the UK by the Sex Pistols. ;)

    I love how most posts so far are songs from classic British bands. I'll be honest with you, apart from the Kaiser Chiefs I can't really name a lot of good British music nowadays. Definitely not including the shameful music I listened to when I was younger!

  5. Ton up! Congratulations. Brit song? One of my favourites is Peace in Our Time by Cliff Richard, or Rawhide by The Chaps.

  6. Congrats on the 100 followers! :)

    How on Earth do I choose my favourite song by a Brit? I discovered recently that most of the music I listen to is by British artists lol :) Okay, I'm going to have to go with a few here Shake It Out by Florence + the Machine, Little Lion Man by Mumford and Sons, and New York by Snow Patrol.

  7. Congrats on the blog milestone!! How fun!

    Um, favorite Brit song? You're joking, right? You're asking me to narrow down ONE STINKIN' SONG from the complete catalogues of The Beatles, Muse, and Oasis? Surely, this is some cruel joke! Fine, just one?

    Oasis, "Don't Look Back In Anger." But I reserve the right to change my mind the minute I hit publish.

  8. I cannot name a favourite song by a Brit. It is IMPOSSIBLE!

    At the moment I am listening obsessively to Florence + The Machine. I love Shake It Out, but I think I still love Rabbit Heart a little bit more. And hello, what about all of Muse, and all the cool Britannia stuff from the 90's? And don't even get me started on The Beatles and the Rolling Stones.


    (But congrats on the 100 followers!)

  9. Congrats on the milestone! Hmm, favorite song by a Brit band...well, recently I'd have to go with Winter Winds by Mumford & Sons.

  10. Hooray! Congrats:-)
    Hmm, favourite song by British band.. Hard one, but I'll have to say "creep" by Radiohead. That song is just briljant.

  11. "We Are the Champions" by Queen. I know, I know, but I can't help myself.

  12. I've been following you for a long time, even if I am sometimes a terrible person and don't comment. But I love you, Cole!
    Hmmm... I'm so obsessed with FloMa, and while I love Ceremonials, I love Lungs even more (the whimsy of the harps! gets me every time). I keep going back to "Between Two Lungs" and "I'm Not Calling You a Liar."
    But I talk about FloMa a lot (and they're coming HERE to Denver and it sold out in like hours and I'm not going, waaaah!!!), so I also love "Paint It Black" by the Stones.
