The Literary Blog Hop

literarybloghop_novemberBonjour and welcome to Too Fond! It’s here–the weekend of the Literary Blog Hop! This will be my third time taking part in this Hop.

The Literary Blog Hop is hosted by Leeswammes. Between Novembery 9th (that’s today!) and  November 13th, you can hop to almost 40 different book blogs, all offering one or more giveaways of books or bookish items. All books will be literary (non)fiction or something close to that. Follow the links at the bottom of this post to find the other participating blogs.

My Giveaway:

I’m coming up on my blogging anniversary, so I will be giving away any one of the following five-star rated books that I’ve read and reviewed here over the past year:

To enter, please read the rules and then leave a comment.

The Rules:

  1. Anyone can enter. You do not need to have a blog.
  2. You need a post-office recognized address anywhere in the world that The Book Depository delivers.
  3. You do not have to be a follower or become a follower, although if you like my blog I hope you will! Check out my follower buttons over on the right.
  4. Enter by leaving a comment with your email address and the book you would choose if you win the giveaway (you can always change your mind later).
  5. You can enter the giveaway until Wednesday, November 13th. I will close the giveaway at 11:59 p.m. on the 13th and will no longer accept entries posted after that time.
  6. Note that double or invalid entries will be removed.
  7. I will notify the winner by email. The winner will need to answer my email within 3 days, or I’ll announce a new winner.
  8. I will order the book of your choice from The Book Depository and have it sent to the address you provide.
  9. That’s it! Good luck and thanks for playing.

    I think I would select Life after Life. Your review was great and you mentioned that the author is an auto buy for you, but I will admit I haven’t read her yet. So, I figure I can’t go wrong there. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Wow, as I was moving through your list and reading your reviews, I kept thinking, “I will choose this one.” Then I would get to the next review and doubt myself. They all sound so awesome. I don’t know which I would choose were I selected, but I do know that it won’t be Life After Life (I’m reading that right now).
