Literary Giveaway Blog Hop

Literary Giveaway Blog Hop

It’s time for another literary giveaway blog hop courtesty of Judith at Leeswammes’ Blog. This time there are over 50 book bloggers joining in which means…..even more chances to win something! πŸ™‚

I’m going to go with a spooky theme this time, what with it being October and the nights drawing in. So, have a little peruse of the books below and then follow:

THE RULES

Please pick ONE book from this list and all you need to do to enter is to comment and tell me which book you have chosen and why you want to read it. How simple is that? Once the competition closes on 19th October I will pick one winner using random.org and I will send you a brand new copy of the book you have chosen using either Amazon or The Book Depository.

Book #1

“Chilling, thrilling, mysterious and very dramatic! A mysterious figure, a woman in white, appears out of nowhere on a London street at midnight – she is running away from someone or something. The only person she meets on that lonely road is Walter Hartright, an Art teacher, and little does he know it but he is about to have his life tured upside down. Mysterious letters, ghostly figures by gravesides, kidnapping and poison all follow through the next 700 pages and not a word is wasted! Narrated by several different characters, all portraying their their own experiences, the reader sees the story unfolding before them.”

Β 

Book #2

“Spooky goings on and things that go bump in the night at a crumbling old manor house in 1940’s rural England. Dr Farrady Β finds explanations for them all, but is there really something more sinister going on in the house or maybe even a member of the household is going slightly mad? You decide.”

Β 

Book #3

Throw a huge cemetery, a cold & wintery London, bizzare mirror twins, a ferrel kitten and a recntly dead Aunt into a pot together and the result is a wonderfully quirky, melancholoy, spooky book. Some great surprises in this book and I have toΒ admit that I never saw what happened in the last 50 pages coming at all! It is ultimately a book about love, loss and betrayal with a gothic backdrop of ghosts, cemetaries and enough twists and turns that you never feel completley comfortable.”

Β 

Now you have chosen your book, pop over to all the other blogs and get entering there too! Good luck!

  1. I’d love to have “The Woman in White”. I’ve been wanting to read that for a while, but I’ve never gotten the chance to. It’s just one of those mystery stories you can’t help but be interested in. Thanks for the opportunity to win it!

  2. I read all the bits about the three books and they all sounded very good. But, I think I like The Woman In White the best.

  3. I read The Woman in White very many years ago and although I still remember the basics of the story, I would like to re-read it as I think with being older now I probably would see the whole book in a new light.

    So please enter me for that.

    Thanks for the giveaway and for opening it to worldwide entries.

I read the Little Stranger last year and adored it and “Her Fearful Simmetry” is on my TBR pile.My best friend was talking about it on the phone last night and telling me how good it was, she just finished it…
    Thanks for being part of this fun event,Boof!

  10. I would like to enter and my choice is ‘The Woman in white’ by Wilkie Collins. this book is on all the reading lists I come across at present including the local library reading group list. I wanted a copy to offer to my reading group but the library wait is so long, I can’t see me getting the book until next year! I am intrigued to read it.

  11. Oooh, I love getting stuck into some spooky Hallowe’en reading! I think my choice would have to be ‘The Little Stranger’. Mostly because I’ve already got the other two so that’d be a bit silly, but ALSO because ‘Tipping the Velvet’ was amazing, and transferring that amazingness to a ghostly story bodes well for all-round book appreciation. Thanks! πŸ™‚

  16. It’s got to be The Woman in White – one of my all time top ten favourites. It’s generally considered to be among the first mystery novels and the story is widely regarded as one of the first (and finest) in the genre of detective fiction.
