Literary Blog Hop Giveaway! – 8th-12th of February 2014

literarybloghop_februaryPlease note that this competition is now closed.

Over the next couple of days I will be taking part in The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop, which is kindly hosted by Leeswammes’ Blog. This time, 42 different book blogs will be offering giveaways of various literary delights, and all of the treats on offer will be literary fiction.

From today (Saturday 8th of February) until Wednesday the 12th of February, you can hop on over to the different book blogs which are all taking part in the giveaway too. Click on the links in the list at the bottom of this post to see what they’re offering and discover some brilliant new book blogs!

My Giveaway

I will be giving away a copy of one of the books below. The competition is open to readers worldwide, so long as The Book Depository delivers to your country (check here to see if your country is one of them). The books you can choose from are three of my favourite books by female writers from my top 13 books of 2013 *cue drumroll*…

Life After Life by Kate Atkinson
Life+After+Life+Cover
From my review: ‘Ursula is born on a snowy winter’s night, and as the cord is wrapped around her neck she draws what will be the first of her last breaths. This is a story of multiple chances at life and explores that notion of ‘What if?’ which I find fascinating…’

Tigers in Red Weather by Liza Klaussman
9781447212201
From my review: ‘Nick and her cousin Helena open the novel in a heatwave, dancing and drinking on their lawn as they look forward to their lives restarting. From the offset, the book is sultry, you can feel the heat and imagine the moonlit nights and salty air and feel the women’s excitement… It’s a heady book to get wrapped up in…’

The Panopticon by Jenni Fagan
panopticon
From my review: ‘The novel opens with fifteen-year-old Anais Hendricks on her way to the Panopticon, a care home for young offenders in rural Scotland somewhere… [but now] Anais is fighting back, trying to reclaim her life and live out opportunities that never seemed to be available for her.’

I will be giving away one book from the selection above to the lucky winner so please do let me know which book you would like to receive in the comments below.

    I’ve been meaning to pick up Life After Life for a while so that would be my choice if I won. I’m not going to leave my email address here just in case it gets picked up by spammy spammers scouring the internet. But there’s a contact form in my about me page on indenialbibliophile.wordpress.com 🙂

  4. Would like to win Life after Life. Thanks for the choices offered.

  5. Awesome! Thanks for this giveaway. I’ve already read Life after Life, which I loved, but I’d love to read The Panopticon 🙂

  6. Hmmm… I think it’s going to have to be Life After Life! I’ve just heard so many amazing things about it, and to my utter shame still haven’t read any Kate Atkinson, which is probably illegal. *looks around shiftily* Good choices!
    Ellie (emp501@hotmail.co.uk)
