Uglies series by Scott Westerfeld GIVEAWAY (AUST. ONLY)

Hey guys!

To celebrate the re-release of Scott Westerfeld's awesome Uglies series (Uglies, Pretties, Specials), in these new covers, I'm giving away a set of the trilogy! The books are kindly donated by the amazing folks at Simon and Schuster Australia.

About the series:

Tally can't wait to turn sixteen and become Pretty. Sixteen is the magic number that brings a transformation from a repellent Ugly into a stunningly attractive Pretty, and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to have a really great time. In just a few weeks, Tally will be there.

But Tally's new friend, Shay, isn't sure she wants to be Pretty. She'd rather risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the Pretty world - and it isn't very pretty. The authorities offer Tally the worse choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn Pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever.

    1. No problem :) I saw the new book covers today, they are amazing!!!

  2. I have been wanting to read this series for ages :D But my library never has the first book in. So thanks for the chance to win them :)

    1. Well I just started reading it too, I liked Uglies, and am starting Pretties soon. Good luck!

  3. I've heard of this series before but it wasn't until just now I took the time to read the blurb - sounds interesting! Thanks for hosting the giveaway :)

    1. :) My pleasure.

      I just finished Uglies, my review is up if you are interested, but it's a really good book. It was written ages ago though, so can totally see how other authors have used similar themes in more recent works. But Westerfeld's books are among the first dystopian YAs so you can see the progression of the ideas.
