UK & EU Summer Giveaway Blog Hop

The UK & EU Summer Hop is running from Monday, August 1st, to Monday, August 8th. Over 30 blogs are giving away book-related prizes.

Many giveaways exclude people from Europe (or anyone not in North-America) so this giveaway blog hop is for anyone who lives in Europe and likes to win a book or book-related prize.

What I am giving away

One winner will win a book of their choice from the selection below. As I will send out the book myself, anyone in Europe can enter, there are no restrictions, as long as you have a postal address.

The Blessings of Animals by Katrina KittleAmong Others by Jo WaltonMalled by Caitlin KellyFirst Frost by James Henry

The Blessings of the Animals by Katrina Kittle – Unread, paperback.

Veterinarian Cami Anderson has hit a rough patch. Stymied by her recent divorce, she wonders if there are secret ingredients to a happy, long-lasting marriage or if the entire institution is outdated and obsolete.  […] But as she struggles to come to terms with her own doubts amid this chaotic circus of relationships, Cami finds strange comfort in an unexpeted confidant: an angry, unpredictable horse in her care. With the help of her equine soul mate, she begins to make sense of marriage’s great mysteries – and its disconnects. (contemporary fiction)

Among Others by Jo Walton – Gently read, beautiful hardback.

Startling, unusual, and irrisistibly readable, Among Others is at once the compelling story of a young woman struggling to escape a troubled childhood, a brilliant diary of first encounters with the great novels of modern fantasy and science fiction and a spellbinding tale of escape from ancient enchantment. My review is here (4 stars). (fantasy)

Malled by Caitlin Kelly – Gently read, hardback.

The author worked part-time at a retail store selling outdoor clothing. Having only been a customer until then, that was quite an eye-opener! My review is here (4 stars). There is also an author interview here. (non-fiction, retail)

First Frost by James Henry – Gently read, large-size proof copy

A new story about Inspector Frost, by a duo of authors, in which Inspector Frost is still youngish and dealing with some difficult cases (and a difficult boss).  My review is here (3 stars). (mystery)

    Great selection, I’m not too sure about entering the other giveaways as I’m away when it ends and will probably miss some of the winners posts but enter me in for The Blessings of the Animals please and I’ll try to pay attention!

  18. Amy says:

    LOL. So you’re all excluding North Americans?! HAHA. That’s hilarious! 🙂 Love it! 🙂 Happy a happy time without your nice friends across the Atlantic, who try to do as many international giveaways as possible. I’m just kidding. I know y’all get excluded from a lot of giveaways, so this is a great chance for you guys to save on shipping, network, using awesome Euro terms. 🙂

    • Leeswammes says:

      Amy, it’s just nice to be able to do a blog hop and be eligible for *all* prizes rather than only some. Lots of people in North-America *are* thinking of us when they do their giveaways, but it’s not the same of course.

      Don’t be insulted (I don’t think you are)! Next giveaway will be for everyone again. 🙂

  25. Iris says:

    Among Others sounds really good! Please enter me 🙂

    • Iris says:

      That is, assuming the Netherlands is part of Europe too. It is not listed as such in your post.

      • Leeswammes says:

        Oh, that’s true! I checked what the post office considered to be “Europe” but of course The Netherlands are a different postage level – so yes, it’s in!

  26. Sonja says:

  30. Hannah says:

    Ooooh! Is that adult fiction I see?! <33 I'll have to be following you via rss 🙂 Thank you for the giveaway.

    I think I'll pick Among Others. I love fantasy so I'd be interested to see what it's about. 🙂

  31. Amberini says:

    I would be interested in Among Others, but sadly it seems that Germany is not on the list of ‘Europe’. :/ Best of luck to all!

    • Leeswammes says:

      That’s odd, Amberini. I got this list from the post office website. Last time I looked, Germany was still in Europe. It hasn’t floated away, has it? Of course you’re in!

      • Amberini says:

        That’s great! I didn’t see it in the list you had in the post, so I assumed it might have been left off for a reason. 🙂 I’m still getting used to living in Europe, so not always sure what’s what. Thanks so much for the wonderful giveaway!
