Literary Giveaway Blog Hop

literarybloghopI am thrilled to participate once again in leeswammes‘ Literary Blog Hop, a great opportunity for readers to win books and hopefully discover new blogs and fellow book-lovers.

Since it is World Cup season, I am giving away a copy of one of my favorite novels of 2014 so far:  The Sun and Other Stars by Brigid Pasulka.  You don’t have to know anything about soccer/football to enjoy the story, but by the end you will certainly understand the passion that the game generates.

To enter, leave a comment and let me know what has been your favorite book so far this year.  I, of course, have nothing to read so I need the extra recommendations 😉

I will select a random commenter on the evening of June 25 and will notify the winner by e-mail.  My giveaway is open internationally!

And make sure to hop to the other participating blogs, listed below — you can’t win if you don’t hop!  Have fun!

    There are some close contenders, but when I consider the question closely I find that my favorite of 2014 is decidedly the recently released O, Africa! by Andrew Lee Conn — it’s not getting enough buzz in my view. Go check it out online and see what you think of the premise…please. Thanks all!

  28. lawonder10 says:

    Jacob Whaler’s new Stones data series is really great! Thi first quarter of the first book is a little slow while it sets the foundation but then it “takes off” and the reader is captivated until the very end. His second book comes out in print next moth but the e-book is already available. His third will be out this fall.
