Literary Giveaway Blog Hop

Update: This giveaway is now closed and the winner is Zsuzsanna. I will be contacting her as soon as I can get to my email account. Thanks for stopping by literary explorers.

literarybloghopjun13-200x200 Judith from Leeswammes blog is hosting another literary blog hop and I am happily taking part. There is a list below of websites which are hosting giveaways of books that have some literary merit. Some great sites take part and you don’t have to have a blog to take part.

I am offering a £10 voucher from the Book Depository. To enter simply leave a comment telling me which book you are likely to buy. You can of course buy anything you like but I would love some suggestions for my wish list. You must leave an email address, entries without one will be removed because they ruin the chances of other people and leave me no way of contacting the winner.

Have fun! I intend to visit as many blogs as possible.

  3. Thank you for the giveaway 🙂 I would probably choose Gone Girl, mainly because it seems everybody is thrilled about it and the subject appeals to me 🙂

  4. I’m not sure what I’d buy if I won! Maybe The Humans by Matt Haig, or The Middlesteins by Jamie Attenberg. They’re both at the top of my wishlist so… priorities! 🙂
