 Giveaway: Genesis (Rosie Black #1) by Lara Morgan

Rosie Black is on the run to save her family and uncover the truth.

Five hundred years into the future, the world is a different place. The Melt has sunk most of the coastal cities and Newperth is divided into the haves, the 'Centrals'; the have-nots, the 'Bankers'; and the fringe dwellers, the 'Ferals'. Rosie Black is a Banker. When Rosie finds an unusual box, she has no idea of the grave consequences of her discovery. A mysterious organisation wants it ' and they'll kill to get it. Forced to rely on two strangers, Rosie is on the run. But who can she trust? Pip, the too attractive Feral, or the secretive man he calls boss? From Earth to Mars, Rosie must learn the secrets of the box. Before it's too late.

    I would follow my heart it dictates what I do and from most of my experience has helped me make the right decisions.

  2. She should always follow her heart because thats where the love is. In times of hardship, it will guide her through and leave herself with no regrets.
    Jennifer K. recently posted..underhero- RT @lazyshoutout- Apple gift card will be given out at 9pm PST tonight TGIF! RT and follow for your chance to win

  3. Thanks for the chance to win this book! Ive been seeing this one around lately, and am honestly pretty interested. :) I also would follow my heart. Although the two are connected, my head would probably lead me away from the right path

  4. Lauren /

    Whats wrong with following your head? OK, maybe its not the best course of action 500 years in the future, but Im going to stick up for rational action here!

  5. Breanna Wright /

    Very interesting, think I would have to go with logic in this situation

  6. I would follow my heart thats where the best adventures lie.
    Mandy recently posted..Bayou Moon The Edge- 2

  7. Im with Lauren and Breanna: use your head! Im assuming the Melt is drastic climate change, which would require a rational and long term solution (or at least long term strategic management). Following ones heart might lead on to focus only on benefit to oneself and those close to you.

  8. having followed my heart twice i say follow your head your heart is an idiot!

  9. hmmmm. were talking survival and that instinct can override logic, heart, principle, ethic and sometimes even reason . so id run with neither heart nor head . at least until i read the book;)

  10. Qi Zhi /

    If I were her, I would follow my heart. Its where your subconscious is, and will unknowingly guide you along through times of hardship, your heart will always be there to tell you what you should do, whether youre following the right path, or onto a dead end.

  11. Jennifer /

    use your head! Its where the brain is and where your logic is, it will end up taking you along the right path no matter the circumstances. it has suffered through and gone through A LOT, and you obviously learn from your experiences.. so go with your head.

  12. Roger /

    Hmm I guess she should use both her HEAD and HEART. Follow her heart to know what she really wants, and use her head to protect the secret, or reveal it. It will lead her the right way if she uses both, her head will make up for her mistakes and help her protect her family with love and care from her heart

  13. To learn the secrets of the hoax Rosie will need to use her brain. To learn who to trust shell use her heart. With both combinations (if she can manage it) then she will make the right choices and be granted freedom & survival for sure ;)

  14. Jackie /

    I always follow my heart. I dont know how to follow my headand it always gets me into trouble, so Im going to have to suggest Rosie follow her head if she wants a positive outcome.

  15. Sophie /

    heart heart heart heart heartyep yep yep yep yep.
    The heads logic can be faulty, the hearts never is

  16. Just a note that we posted about this at Winning Readings:

  17. Follow your heart, it knows better than your head!
    Jess recently posted..Not with a Fizzle but with a Bang

  18. Clarissa /

    I think Id have to say head, following my head hasnt got me evry far thus far

  19. Janelle /

    Heart all the way, no matter the consequences! This looks to be a great series, Id love to get my hands on a copy.

  20. keppers /

    Definately my head because in these kind of situations you need to think things through and make the right decision but of course your heart always has some kind of impact on any decision

  21. speakersloud /

    your head has the knowledge but can be dodgy.. but your heart has everything you need :)

  22. Thanks for this opportunity. Just caught it on twitter.

    Definitely Id follow my heart as it usually is the correct decision.
