Literary Giveaway Blog Hop

This is the 7th Literary Giveaway Blog Hop, hosted by Leeswammes, with 42 blogs offering up an array of literary prizes. My offerings have a Greek mythology theme this time, and as I can never decide on just one, I will be giving the winner a choice of The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller or The Penelopiad by Margaret Atwood.

This is an international giveaway (providing The Book Depository ship to your country). Edition may differ from those pictured.

If you're stopping by my blog for the first time, you may be puzzled at why I'm taking part in a literary blog hop. Well I read a little bit of everything and go through phases. If you consider yourself an eclectic reader too, I would love it if you'd follow me BUT it is not a requirement to enter. Everyone gets one free entry.

You can follow the blog via RSS, email subscription, Networked Blogs, Google Friend Connect or G+. I am also on Twitter, Goodreads and Pinterest.

My Facebook is a personal account and I do not accept friend requests from people I don't know.

  1. Thanks for the giveaway, it's always good to meet other eclectic readers!

  2. Thanks for the giveaway! I love Greek mythology :-)

  3. Yay for mythology! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  4. Nice choices - I own both so I won't enter.

    Thanks for joining the blog hop. I hope you'll enjoy hopping and being hopped to. :-)

  5. Thank you for the giveaway! I have already read The Penelopiad, so I am keeping my fingers crossed for The Song of Achilles :)

  6. The Penelopiad for me - thanks, Ellie!

  7. These both look so great, I've been hoping to read more Margaret Atwood! Thanks for the chance :)

  8. I just found your blog through a RT on twitter. I love the look! Can't wait to read more reviews in the future. I'm trying to mix my reading up a bit (haven't been so successful) so this seems like the perfect way to learn about books outside of my usual genre preference. A giveaway is awesome as well. I'm hosting one tomorrow for a signed copy of Ann Patchett's State of Wonder, so stop by and enter if you think you'd enjoy it!

  9. I also read a little bit of everything! The Penelopiad is on my wishlist for this year so I'm excited! Thanks--

  10. Thank you for such a generous giveaway. These are 2 great book choices. Song of Achilles has been on my wish list for months so if I win your giveaway, it's my choice.

    Thank you!
