Literary Blog Hop Giveaway

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

The Literary Blog Hop is hosted by Leeswammes. Between June 21st (that’s today!) and June 25th, 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:

For my giveaway, I’m offering a choice of one of my favorite books of the year (so far) from The Book Depository. Your choices include:

  1. The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie 
  2. Where’d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple
  3. I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith

  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, June 25th. I will close the giveaway at 11:59 p.m. on the 25th and will no longer accept entries posted after that time.
  6. Note that double or invalid entries will be removed.

    Hi This is great. I would like to enter with a chance to win The Thing Around your Neck by Ngozi Adichie. Wish me luck! Glad it is open to UK residents.

  2. Claire 'Word by Word'

    Great choices, I’d choose The Thing around Your Neck, the only one of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s books that I haven’t read.

    Thanks for the opportunity to participate, I hope you enter my giveaway too. 🙂

  3. rivercityreading

    I absolutely loved Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Americanah and have been really looking forward to reading more from her, so I’d go with The Thing Around Your Neck. Thanks for the giveaway! rivercityreading [at] gmail [dot] com

  4. Leah

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway! I’d like to enter for The Thing around Your Neck. I’ve heard such great things about Adichie’s work but have yet to read any of her books.

  5. bostonbibliophile1

    I’d pick Where’d You Go, Bernadette. my email is bibliophile at Thanks for the chance!

  6. Sophie Twichell

    What a fun idea. Please enter me for “The Thing around Your Neck.” A new author for me and I can’t wait to explore her work. Loved “I capture the castle” when I read it many years ago. Great selections.

  7. Ann

    I’d get The Gods of Heavenly Punishment by Jennifer Cody Epstein. Thanks!

    ann [dot] m [dot] vuong [at] gmail [dot] com

  8. Monika @ Lovely Bookshelf

    I’m leaning toward The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, though I’ve been wanting to read Where’d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple, too. It’s a tough choice!! I’d probably decide on the Adichie. 🙂 Thanks for hosting this giveaway! monika.lovelybookshelf (at) gmail (dot) com

  9. Kara S

    Thank you for giving literary fiction readers like myself this rare treat by participating in this giveaway hop! I adore this! I think I’d likely choose Where’d You Go, Bernadette? Comic novels can really flop, but this one does sound like it’s well up my literary alley.

    ***For others without a clear pick, a recommendation: Jennifer Cody Epstein dropped the bomb on me and rocked my world with an absorbing, incredibly poignant work of art — namely The God of Heavenly Punishment” over the last couple weeks. Finished the other day and still sort of dumbstruck…Whoa!

    Thanks again for this gift to readers! –K

  10. Laurie C

    I would probably choose I Capture the Castle, because it’s the one I’ve heard mentioned most often as a favorite book of book bloggers! lauriec AT baystatera DOT com

  11. Leeswammes

    Thanks for joining the blog hop! I also enjoyed Bernadette a lot! I’d go for The Thing Around Your Neck by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie if I win! Happy blog hop!

  12. Megan @ The Whynott Blog

    Oh man. My first instinct is The Thing Around Your Neck. I just finished Americanah and can’t get it out of my head! But Bernadette is definitely a close second. I keep seeing it everywhere.

    Thanks for hosting! I’ll check out the rest of your blog 🙂
