So, yesterday I did a post about how, not long ago, I received my first ever book for review in the post and how VERY EXCITING it was! (You can see that post here) And so, today, I want to tell you about how that book came to be in my mail; I am going to tell you about Atomics, an awesome thing I recently discovered, and something that I think some of you guys might be interested in.
Atomics is a program run by Atom publishing for teens in the UK, giving anybody who loves reading the opportunity to read and review books before they are released.
Does that sound awesome or what? I was SO HAPPY when I found out about Atomics because I had come across things like the 'Simon & Schuster Pulse It' program before that is only open to residents of the US and Canada and the Random Buzzers website where, although anyone can partcipate, you have to live in the US to be able to receive books from them, and let me tell you, I was SO ANNOYED that I didn't live in the US! Even though, I do love England :)
Anyway, Atomics is a great program and it's so easy to join - the only conditions are that you are between 12 and 18, live in the UK and love reading! Whenever, they have books available for review, they send an email to everyone who is signed up and if you are interested, you simply email them back telling them so. They then choose, out of everyone who has replied, several people who will be that month's reviewers!
I signed up at the end of March and I was really excited when, in April, I got the chance to review Sarra Manning's new book, Adorkable, which is to be published in May. I was so happy to be picked to review it - and I have already finished reading Adorkable, which I loved!
If you want to sign up to be an Atomics reviewer, or you just want more information, head over to their website here.
