Literary Giveaway Blog Hop


Welcome to the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop!

The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop is hosted by me, Leeswammes. Between now and Wednesday, February 13th, you can hop to 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

Waterline by Ross RaisinAs part of the blog hop I will be giving away Waterline by Ross Raisin, which is one of my favorite reads from last year. Check my review HERE. Entries are open worldwide where the Book Depository delivers.

In this book, Mick is a widower from Glasgow who moves to London to start a new life. But it’s not easy to get and keep a decent job and his life becomes quite desperate. Not a happy book, but very well written. A beautiful literary read.

The Reconstructionist by Nick Arvin

For other entrants (non-Book Depository), I have a different book, The Reconstructionist by Nick Arvin. See my review HERE. Note that you cannot win this book if the Book Depository delivers to your country. If the winner is from a Bookdepository country, they will get Waterline and if you’re from another country you will receive my gently read copy of The Reconstructionist, which I will send out to you myself.
