Literary Giveaway Blog Hop

It's that time again. This is the 10th Literary Giveaway Blog Hop as hosted by Leeswammes. Make sure you check out the rest of the participating blogs, listed at the bottom of this post.

I usually offer a selection of favourite new releases, but I've decided to do something different this time. The Day of the Triffids is one of my favourite books and it seems that everyone is reading it at the moment. So I could offer that, but I realise a lot of people likely to stop by already have it. So, the winner can choose any John Wyndham book (currently available in paperback). I have been pretty bad in reading any of his others, and I want to, so maybe this will remind me to do so. You can choose either the Penguin Modern Classic edition or the regular Penguin paperback (providing it is available).

Giveaway open internationally.

You don't have to follow to enter, but I'd love it if you did. I read a wide range of genres and have regular giveaways (particularly within Europe). You can follow by email, RSS, Bloglovin' or NetworkedBlogs. Entry is via Rafflecopter only (please don't leave contact details in the comments).

  1. Thank you for hosting this fantastic giveaway! I haven't read a Wyndham book since high school (we had to read The Chrysalids for English class) and I've been meaning to go back to his other works

  2. I've been working my way through Wyndham for a couple of years. Just Chocky and The Kraken Wakes to go now ....

  3. I really want to read Day of the Triffids. Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Those covers, wow. So which should I start with (if I win?) ;)

    1. I love Day of the Triffids and it's his best known work. Definitely feels like a modern novel too, despite the time that's passed.

    2. Thanks for the reco, Ellie. Putting it on the TBR! :) Yet another great find on this hop!

  5. The cover artwork on these books alone make me want to pick them up! Haven't read any Wyndham, but it is about time. Thanks for the giveaway!

  6. Thanks for joining the blog hop. I think this is a great choice! I LOVED The Crysalids. I think I'd go for The Midwich Cuckoos if I'd win.
