IN BLOOM PAPERBACK REVEAL AND GIVEAWAY.

You remember my reviewing IN BLOOM by Matthew Crow last year? 

Wellll ......

I was delighted to receive an email from Publicity Assistant, Grace, to inform me that In Bloom was available in paperback as of March the 20th and would I be interested in getting involved in the Blog Tour?

Would I be interested? Just try and stop me spreading the word about what I felt was 'one of if not my favourite reads of 2013'.

And so, without further ado, I bring you .....




Written by the exceptionally talented young author Matthew Crow, In Bloom is a funny, poignant and exuberant read about a teenage boy who develops leukemia, the effects this has on his family and first love. 

It’s an incredibly memorable and (despite the subject matter) uplifting read, and at only 25, Matthew has created a genuinely realistic teenage voice in his protagonist Francis, who’s been hailed by Matt Haig as ‘the best fictional teenager since Adrian Mole… Read In Bloom right now. It will change your life’. 

A real teen /adult crossover book, In Bloom will appeal to fans of R.J. Palacio’s Wonder, Gavin Extence’s The Universe Versus Alex Woods and John Green’s The Fault in Our StarsIn Bloom was incredibly well received in Hardback, garnering some fantastic reviews and has been shortlisted for both the Peters Book of the Year for Fiction and WeRead 2014.

A novel you'd like to read?

I'm pleased to announce that thanks to Constable & Robinson Ltd, whose spring catalogue is available HERE , I'm able to offer the following giveaway.


Two lucky winners - one British and one International - will receive a copy of In Bloom. There is no rafflecopter, no questions to answer, and you don't have to follow me though that would be greatly appreciated, all that I ask is if you'd be so kind as to spread the word about In Bloom by writing a review (either on your own blog or as a guest on Pen and Paper) that would be great.
All names will be entered into one of two hats (one for UK entrants and another for International entrants so please indicate which is applicable) and the first to be drawn out of each hat on Saturday the 29th of March 2014 will receive a copy of In Bloom. 
Good luck everyone .....

I'm still not sure it's a book I would pick up on my own. If I were to win it, though, I would be happy to read and review it....especially given your rave reviews.

Please put me in the hat for your international drawing!
