Literary Giveaway Blog Hop (June 22-26)

It's time for another round of the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop! This is an event organised by Judith over at Leeswammes' Blog and it takes place three times a year. Judith noticed that there seem to be awful lot of blog hops and giveaways around for romance and YA novels, but not so much for more literary choices:

"if you’re giving away a book, that it should have some literary merit. It does not have to be the most difficult classic ever, but please no romance, urban fiction or YA. Quality thrillers, poetry and non-fiction are fine, as are contemporary fiction, literary fiction and any other genres not in the categories above"


This time around I have decided to give away a copy of any one of the Rivers Of London series by Ben Aaronovitch to one winner. For those who haven't already discovered these books, Rivers Of London is such a great read whether or not you usually like to read fantasy. And if you're already partway through the series and would like to win the second or third books, please let me know in a comment. You can read my review of Rivers Of London here.


The giveaway is open to any country that The Book Depository ships to. The rules for entry are as follows:

1. Comment on this post telling me which of the books you'd like to win. One comment equals one entry.
2. For an extra entry, follow me on Twitter @marieemonaghan and mention your Twitter handle in your comment.
3. For an extra entry, follow me on Goodreads and let me know your Goodreads ID in your comment.
4. Please remember to leave some way for me to contact you if you win - an e-mail address or Twitter ID.
5. The giveaway will remain open until the end of the day on 26th June.

Good luck and remember to visit the other blogs participating in the hop!

    I follow on twitter (@leeswammes) but can't work out if I follow you on Goodreads. No idea where to look! :-) I'm Leeswammes on Goodreads, but I think it's clear I don't use it much. I'm a Shelfari person myself.

    Happy hopping!
