Join us for our #CHALLENGEBEAUTY week

Dhonielle Clayton’s The Belles publishes today and in celebration of the important messages this book has for us about beauty and the value we assign to outward appearance we are issuing a #ChallengeBeauty week. This is a week dedicated to celebrating beauty in all its forms and talking about the sheer awesomeness that is The Belles, the book Rick Riordan called ‘The next big groundbreaking event in YA’!


8th: we kick off the week with an author takeover on the Gollancz twitter where you can #AskDhonielle your questions about the book.

9th: then we’re asking you to share your #beautifulbook – they say never judge a book by its cover, so we are celebrating the beauty we see in our favourite books, no matter how well-loved the cover!

10th: some books have the power to change us. What was the one that changed you?

11th: show off your gorgeous shelves – no matter how crowded, we know they’re beautiful to you!

12th: some books are great for a day, while others linger for a lifetime – which is your most cherished book?

13th: Parks and Rec gave us so much to be thankful for, and in particular it gave us Galentine’s Day, so we can celebrate the incredible women we call friends. Which book would you give to your Galentine?

14th: books are windows into so many worlds. Which one did you see yourself in?
