Shipwrecked Read-a-long and Giveaway!

On Monday 19th August, my Goodreads page 'Fandom Freak-Out'(which you can join by clicking here) is holding a read-a-long until Thursday 29th August . A Fandom Freak-Out was a group a set up where you can openly discuss the latest book fandoms including: 'The Hunger Games', 'Divergent', 'The Fault in Our Stars', 'The Mortal Instruments' and soon to be updated with 'Vampire Academy' news.
Our first read-a-long is going to be 'Shipwrecked' by Siobhan Curham as it is the first book in a brand-new Saga which is on it's way to the small-screen. Shipwrecked was written as a novel, and as screenplay by Siobhan at the same time: alternating between the two. Here is the synopsis:
"I jump at the sound of a whispered voice over my shoulder.
 But when I turn round all I see is sand, and the towering, green wall of the rainforest. I guess it must have been the breeze, but I can't help shivering. I have the weirdest feeling that we're being watched."
Grace Delaney and her fellow dance students are en route to perform on a South Pacific cruise-ship when a freak storm hits and they find themselves stranded on a deserted island. With the tropical heat rising, passions and tensions swell to breaking point. And the island itself is quietly steaming with a terrible secret.
What I'm looking forward to: Siobhan Curham's writing! It's always so refreshing and packed full of humour. Although, this is really different compared to her previous books, ' Dear Dylan and 'Finding Cherokee Brown' so, in that sense, I'm excited to see where Siobhan takes this story and the imaginative side of things.

Also, we have a gorgeous banner designed by Ruby, which I love! It completely reflects the book's atmosphere!

I received a signed copy of this book for review over two months ago now, so I can't wait to finally get around to it. I've also been given the chance to hold a give-a-way on this blog to win a signed copy of the book. UPDATE: This giveaway is now international, thank-you Siobhan! You can enter the giveaway below!

  1. I'm really excited to start reading this book! Even though Dear Dylan didn't blow me away, it was still a fun read. I don't think I've ever read a book about being shipwrecked before so it should be interesting.

    Read-a-longs are so much fun :D I won't enter the giveaway since I already have a signed copy (as you know) but good luck to everyone who enters. Thanks for sharing, Sophie!

  2. I love Fandom Freakout! I would love to participate in the read-a-long but sadly I don't have any way to get a copy. It sounds so good and I'm dying to read a Siobhan Curham novel, they sound so good. Wish the giveaway was international but oh well. Let me know what you think of Shipwrecked, Happy Reading :)
