Literary Blog Hop Giveaway

LiteraryBlogHopNovember


Welcome to the Literary Blog Hop hosted by Judith at Leeswammes' Blog. Today, I am giving away two novels. You can enter to win one or both.

From the publisher: Charlie Lovett’s best-selling debut novel The Bookman’s Tale introduced scores of readers to the true meaning of the word bibliophile. In his delightful second novel, FIRST IMPRESSIONS: A Novel of Old Books, Unexpected Love, and Jane Austen, Lovett once again immerses readers in a world where books hold closely guarded secrets that threaten to turn the literary world upside down. For Lovett, a former antiquarian bookseller and collector, old books hold a power like none other; in his thrilling, suspenseful mysteries, their contents become matters of life and death.

From the publisher: Like her earlier work, THERE ONCE LIVED A MOTHER WHO LOVED HER CHILDREN, UNTIL THEY MOVED BACK IN is written with the same mordant wit and profound pathos that Petrushevskaya is known for. In these heartrending novellas impoverished heroines chronicle tales of family and friendship that under the conditions of post-Soviet Russia have turned hellish and ugly. With exceptional eye for (often painful) detail, Petrushevskaya gives voice to those who wouldn’t normally be heard. Considered modern classics in Russia, these novellas confirm the brilliance of an author with a gift for turning suffering and degradation into compassionate art.


Thank you to Viking/Penguin for donating the books in this giveaway.

  1. Thanks for participating in the blog hop. I haven't heard of these books but they look great!

  2. Two books I'd love to read, including one I hadn't heard of before, though I think I remember the title of Ludmilla Petrushevskaya's last book being very unusual and striking, as well!

    1. Yes, her previous book has a similar, unusual title. I'm halfway through this one and it's definitely different, but quite interesting.

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …

The contest ends on Thursday, July 5th at midnight Eastern Time. The winner will be notified by e-mail. If they do not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.

Happy 4th of July! I hope you have a safe and fun holiday!
