Giveaway: ‘The Martian’ by Andy Weir (paperback)

The MartianHappy Friday readers! One of the biggest sci-fi flicks to hit theaters this year is The Martian, based on Andy Weir’s wildly popular novel of the same name. Since the movie is hitting theaters this week, I’m giving away a paperback copy to one lucky reader–all you have to do to enter is use the Rafflecopter widget below!

The novel is told from the point of view of astronaut Mark Watney, one of the first humans to set foot on the surface of Mars–and now, perhaps the first human to die there. Stranded after a freak accident separates him from his crew, Watney is believed dead by everyone back on Earth, and with only a few emergency supplies his chances of survival are slim to none. But he has some MacGyver-style tricks up the sleeves of his spacesuit, which he puts to good use as he fights to get home.

The giveaway is open internationally through October 11; everyone can earn a freebie entry, but you can also earn additional entries by leaving a comment or following on my social media channels (I especially recommend following on Bloglovin’, so you don’t miss out on future posts and giveaways!). Good luck!

    My favourite’s not exactly set in space but is about a conspiracy surrounding a Mars landing and the subsequent efforts to cover up the hoax. Capricorn One (1977) is a great film and highly recommended (by me) even though the special FX are a bit dated.


    Does anyone else love the ’50s Sci-Fi movies? The original War of the Worlds, Invasion Of The Body Snatchers & The Day The Earth Stood Still were brilliant for their time while others are so bad they’re good: It Came From Outer Space, Devil Girl From Mars, & The Brain From Planet Arous – great fun!

      I really liked the original Body Snatchers and wasn’t too thrilled with the Nicole Kidman remake. It just lacked the same fright factor!!

    I have yet to have a favorite novel set in outer space but I just found out about The Martian and got soooo interested in it. I hope to win the giveaway cos I cant wait to read it. I don’t think I’ve seen a book displayed in the nearest bookstore here :( So, I really wish to win this.
