Book Giveaway: The Dressmaker by Rosalie Ham


I have a great giveaway for you this week! I'm giving away a copy of The Dressmaker by Rosalie Ham. According to the publisher: "This darkly satirical novel is a perfect fit for the dog days of summer: Ham sets her tale of haute couture and revenge in small-town Australia, where the nosy neighbors think they know all your business and don’t like any of it one bit."

The main character is Tilly Dunnage, who left town many years ago but has returned to take care of her mother. The townspeople hate Tilly because they think she killed a boy back when she was a child. They also look down on her mother, whom they call Mad Molly. I'm only halfway through, but it's an entertaining story and has just started to take a dark turn, I believe. I'll write a full review once I'm done.

In the meantime, you can win a copy of The Dressmaker by completing the Rafflecopter down below. Also, be sure to check out the movie trailer. The Dressmaker will soon be out in theaters starring Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth.



This giveaway is open only to U.S. mailing addresses per the publisher's request. To enter, complete the following Rafflecopter by midnight Eastern time on August 18. The winner will be notified by email and will have 48 hours to respond before a new winner is selected.

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

Another woman who appears in the advertisement is murdered and Zoe starts to ge…
