World Book Night 2014: The Recruit by Robert Muchamore {review & giveaway} *closed

This is my 3rd year as a World Book Night giver.

I have mentioned before that I have a love affair with books. I have this idea in my head that books have answers to questions we would have never thought to ask.

I have found a whole community of people who enjoy reading, but I also encounter those who say they don’t. There are others who would like to read more, but have other priorities.

The whole point of World Book Night is to target those in the later group(s).

This year I was given The Recruit (a CHERUB novel) by Robert Muchamore. It’s the first in a series about a young man who at first gets into a bit of trouble only to be recruited into a top-secret branch of the government.

I hadn't read the book before I collected my box of books from a local library. So, before I gave them out I had a read.

It’s very cleverly written and entertaining for most ages, starting from about 10 years old! It kept me reading late into the night! I really enjoyed the main character and might have to see how he gets on in the following books - there are a total of 12!


On the day of World Book Night (23, April) I took just over a third of my books on the school run. I gave them to parents to read and to parents who I knew had a pre-teen or young adult at home who needed to be encouraged to read.

I also gave a couple of copies to my English teacher friends to share with students they thought might need encouragement to read more.

And I have one copy left to share with my United Cakedom readers!

Follow the instructions on the Rafflecopter and one reader will be chosen by random! As World Book Night has “world” in it, entries can be from anywhere!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Please share this giveaway with someone who doesn't read a lot and encourage them to enter! Or just enter for them! Or if you can't wait that long go find your self a copy! 


Oh, I almost forgot! All the World Book Night books include a recommendation from the author! Plus more resources on other books and World Book Night! Also a bonus when you've just finished a great book and don't know where to look next!
