108 thoughts on “Literary Giveaway Blog Hop: 9/2/13-13/2/13

  1. I’d love to read Life! Death! Prizes!

    My post is not up for another 5 or so minutes (just after midnight here) but I’ve got a list of 25 books to choose from so do come have a look πŸ™‚


  2. I loved the TV show about midwives so I would love to win “Call the Midwife”. Love the blog too. Thanks.

  3. Fun! I’ve been wanting to read ‘Gillespie and I’ since reading a glowing review of it a while back, so I think I’d pick that one. Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Hmm, this would be a really difficult choice between “Gillespie and I” and “Rules of Civility”… Maybe I would enjoy Jane Harris, as I am not in America-in-the-beginning-of-the-century right now πŸ™‚

    Very nice giveaway, thank you!


  5. I would love to win The Rules of Civility.
    A book I would recommend is Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson πŸ™‚
    Thank you for the international giveaway!

  6. What a great list of books, Sam! I’ve heard a lot of good things about Rules of Civility so I’d choose that if I won. Thanks for joining in the blog hop.

  7. CALL THE MIDWIFE sounds like a book I would thoroughly enjoy thank you.

  8. Wonderful choices – I am torn between Gillespie & I and Life! Death! Prizes! but if I was to win would probably go for the latter as you’ve just recommended it to me over on my Blog Hop post! Thanks for the giveaway and hope you’re enjoying the hop πŸ™‚

  9. I’d like to win ‘Call the midwife’ as I have heard lots of good things about it.
    My recommendation: ‘The Time Traveler’s wife’ by Audrey Niffenegger.

  10. I’d love to win Rules of Civility by Amor Towles. It sounds like something a little different to what I would normally read, and I’ve been looking to branch out. Thanks so much for running the giveaway πŸ™‚


  11. Thanks for participating and hosting such a fantastic giveaway! I’d love to win a copy of Rules of Civility since my bookclub is reading that this year. Email Address: bblanton(dot)84(at)gmail(dot)com.

  12. I would love to win a copy of Rules of Civility. You chose 4 wonderful books, Thank you!
    If you’ve never read any of Wallace Stegner’s books I highly recommend them especially Crossing to Safety and Big Rock Candy Mountain.

  13. Thank you for the giveaway! I would love to win Gillespie and I, it is on my wishlist for quite some time πŸ™‚ AS for good books, I started The Book of Human Skin for the Venice in February reading challenge and it is absolutely brilliant πŸ™‚

  14. I would love to win Call The Midwife. Thank you for this chance to win! πŸ™‚
