Armchair BEA – Day 3: Giveaway Day! (WW)

Armchair BEA

Armchair BEA is for those people who cannot visit Book Expo America but still want to join in the fun. This week, May 28th to June 2nd, there are celebrations for those who stay at home rather than make it to New York. Look out for a new post every day from me!

This third day of Armchair BEA includes a giveaway. Yes, I love to give away books. The full linky list of people that are giving away books during Armchair BEA can be found HERE.

What can you win? You can choose any of the books that I have reviewed in 2012 and 2013 (see the list HERE) as long as I gave it 4 or more stars (I wouldn’t want you to read a book that I only thought was so-so) under 15 euros (20 US dollars, 13 British pounds) at Bookdepository. The list is not completely updated, so check out my more recent review posts too!



I’m going to give one entrant one book (your choice, as explained above – check this or your entry will be void). I’m going to send via Bookdepository, so make sure they deliver to your country.

How to enter: In the comments, tell me your favorite book of this year. Then let me know what book you’d like to win.

If you’d like to tweet about this giveaway, that would be so nice! You’ll get one extra entry if you do. Add the tweet link to your comment (click on Expand under the tweet, and then on Details, copy the link from the Address bar). You can get a total of two entries for this giveaway.

You don’t need to be a follower of this blog. On Sunday June, 2nd, I’ll draw a winner. I will send the winner an email and they have 3 days (72 hours) to reply or a new winner is chosen.

  30. Oh, my goodness! I have just been schooled in a major way!!! I was amazed and I’m in awe of all the great books you’ve read!! I have so many on my TBR list and sadly, my list just keeps getting higher! I’d love to read The House Girl. It’s been on of my TBR books and I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews. After reading Yellow Crocus, I was enamored with reading more about the personal journey of slaves (from their perspective). The Help was another fantastic read that I enjoyed and think The House Girl may just be on of those great ones, too!

That was such an entertaining book! From your list, there are quite a lot of books I would love to read now. My first pick would be The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes

    My favorite so far is probably The One and Only Ivan (although that answer might change if I responded on a different day).

    I’m tempted by many of the titles you’ve reviewed, but Barbara Kingsolver remains a favorite of mine and I haven’t yet had a chance to read Flight Behavior, so that’s what I’d pick.
