Win a six month subscription to Buddy Box worth over £100 and a Victoria sponge cake

something to live for competition

Looking for an uplifting new book? We're giving you the chance to win a copy of Richard Roper's debut novel Something to Live For, along with some extra treats to enjoy while you read your copy. The winner will receive a six month subscription to Buddy Box - worth over £100 - and a Victoria sponge cake.

With the warmth of David Nicholls and the charm and humour of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Something to Live For explores one man's attempts to let go of the past and start his life afresh.

Meet Andrew.

Everybody likes Andrew. But they don't really know him.

They know what he's told them - that he's happily married with two kids. Living the kind of life that's either so boring it's true, or so perfect it's a lie...

Enter Peggy.

Peggy arrives in Andrew's life in a burst of kindness and possibility. For the first time in ages, Andrew feels alive again. So now that he has everything to lose, can he risk it all and tell Peggy the truth?

A big-hearted story about love, loneliness, and the importance of taking a chance when we feel we have the most to lose.

"A perfect, quirky summer page-turner. A life-affirming debut" - The Sunday Times

"Funny, moving and thought-provoking - I loved this" - Clare Mackintosh

"If you loved Eleanor Oliphant, try this brilliant new read" - Fabulous

The lucky winner will receive one BuddyBox a month, for six months. Each BuddyBox contains at least five products hand-picked to nourish, inspire and encourage self-care. The contents of the BuddyBox vary from month to month and remain a closely guarded secret. (The surprise is very much part of the experience.) All the items included in the box are intended to make you feel good: helping you de-stress, find calm, feel pampered, relax, get creative, or simply have fun. And what could be more uplifting than a delicious slice of Victoria sponge cake from sponge.co.uk while you cosy up with the book? 

Something to Live For is published by Orion and is available online and from all good bookshops.
