Literary Giveaway Blog Hop

Judith at leeswammes’ blog has organized another fantastic literary giveaway blog hop to give us bookaholics amazing opportunities to win a book (or two).

I am offering two giveaways, because I have found myself with extra copies of two books I really enjoyed reading.  Both are open to readers near and far.

1.  When She Woke by Hillary Jordan (bonus:  signed copy!)

2.  The Most Beautiful Book in the World by Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt (my review here)

To enter, just leave a comment below telling me if you have a preference for one or the other and just because I’m nosy, tell me what you are reading now.  Oh  yes, and please include an e-mail address so I can contact you directly.

I will randomly select two winners on February 23 and notify them by e-mail to obtain the mailing addresses.

    Great giveaway! I would love to get When She Woke. I am reading 1Q84 by Murakami!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  2. When she Woke sounds really good! I am currently reading The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides.

    Thanks for the giveaway

  3. I heard a lot about When She Woke by Hillary Jordan, so I’d choose that one. Currently, I’m reading American Gospel by Jon Meacham.

  4. Yuliya says:

    I would like “When she woke”. Now I’m re-reading Terry Pratchett “Guards! Guards!”

  5. Kinna says:

    “When she woke” sounds good. I’m currently reading Omon Ra by Victor Pelevin.
    Thanks for the giveaway.
    kinnareads (at) gmail (dot) com

  6. I wouldn’t mind either book, I read most things. I’m about to start The Red Thread (historical fiction set in Singapore).
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. I’d be happy with both books but I think “When She Woke” sounds amazing! (BTW how great are both those covers?!)

    I’m in the closing pages of Bram Stoker’s Dracula at the moment, what I’ll be reading next, though, I have no idea!

    kayleigh (dot) f (dot) murphy (at) gmail (dot) com

  8. Ally says:

    I would choose the Schmitt book because I have already read three of his books and they are gorgeous, so this one cannot be bad 🙂 I am reading Crossing the bridge of Sighs for my venice in February Challenge. Thanks for the giveaway!

  9. Nadine Nys says:

    Thanks so much for this giveaway… I would love to read When She Woke.

  10. elliepotten says:

    Hello! I’ve heard amazing things about WHEN SHE WOKE so if you could enter me for that one that’d be great!

    I’m reading a bit of a mixed bag at the moment, to say the least. My main read is Eowyn Ivey’s ‘The Snow Child’, which so far is living up to the hype. I’m also midway through Nick Krieger’s ‘Nina Here Nor There: My Journey Beyond Gender’, which is absolutely fascinating. AND I’m also reading Belle de Jour’s ‘Intimate Confessions of a London Call Girl’ during idle moments… Yup, no one’s going to be pigeonholing MY reading anytime soon… 😉

    Cheers m’dears!
    Ellie @ Musings of a Bookshop Girl

  11. Please enter me for When She Woke. Thanks!

    I am currently reading The Color Purple by Alice Walker, The Secret History by Donna Tartt, Gone with the Wind, The Crown by Nancy Bilyeau, and Shakespeare’s Macbeth.


  12. I’m reading Crown of Vengeance by Stephen Zimmer it’s good, before that I read Before She Woke so I think I’d like The Most Beautiful Book In The World should I be the winner.


  13. ellelitjp says:

    I’d really like to win When She Woke… I’ve wanted to get my hands on that book since before it was released!

  20. dogwood says:

    Oh, my gosh… how to choose?! They really and truly both sound like books I would enjoy. When She Woke is probably one that my husband and I would both really enjoy, though. But, The Most Beautiful Book in the World would be fantastic for car-line reading.

  24. Veronika says:

    Both books sounds amazing! If I have to choose, I’d say When She Woke. Thank you for the giveaway!

    Both books look interesting, but if I need to choose one I’m slightly more inclined toward The Most Beautiful Book in the World – I’m on a short story kick right now.
