Welcome!

Welcome to the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop!

The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop is hosted by me, Leeswammes. Between now and Wednesday November 5th, you can hop to 30 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

The book I want to offer for this giveaway is one that I read recently and really enjoyed. The story takes place in my own country and I think it’s a very good historical fiction novel.

The Miniaturist by Jessie Burton

From the publishers: “On a brisk autumn day in 1686, eighteen-year-old Nella Oortman arrives in Amsterdam to begin a new life as the wife of illustrious merchant trader Johannes Brandt. But her new home, while splendorous, is not welcoming. Johannes is kind yet distant, always locked in his study or at his warehouse office—leaving Nella alone with his sister, the sharp-tongued and forbidding Marin.

But Nella’s world changes when Johannes presents her with an extraordinary wedding gift: a cabinet-sized replica of their home. To furnish her gift, Nella engages the services of a miniaturist—an elusive and enigmatic artist whose tiny creations mirror their real-life counterparts in eerie and unexpected ways . . .

Johannes’ gift helps Nella to pierce the closed world of the Brandt household. But as she uncovers its unusual secrets, she begins to understand—and fear—the escalating dangers that await them all. In this repressively pious society where gold is worshipped second only to God, to be different is a threat to the moral fabric of society, and not even a man as rich as Johannes is safe. Only one person seems to see the fate that awaits them. Is the miniaturist the key to their salvation . . . or the architect of their destruction?”

My review is HERE.

My Giveaway

There will be one winner who can choose one book from these four very different books:

A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley CashReady Player One by Ernest ClineThe First Book of Calamity Leek by Paula LichtarowiczThe Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling

Click on the titles to read my reviews.

A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash. A dodgy church holds a healing session for a boy. But things go wrong. 5 stars

Ready Player One by Ernest Cline. Access to a lot of money is hidden within a large computer system. An 18-year old boy who spends most of his time online tries to find clues to where the money is. 5 stars

The First Book of Calamity Leek by Paula Lichtarowicz. Brilliant but strange story about a girl who lives in a kind of farm with her 12 “sisters”. Outside the wall are injuns and demonmales. It takes a long time before you know what’s going on. Is this historical or modern fiction, fantasy or post-apocalyptic SF? You need to read it to find out. 5 stars.

The Casual Vacancy by J. K. Rowling. A death in the parish council leaves a small town in search for a new candidate. Many people get involved. 5 stars
