Literary Giveaway Blog Hop

Welcome to the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop!

Judith from Leeswammes’ Blog has organized the third Literary Giveaway Blog Hop. It will run until October 19, and again there are awesome books waiting for a new owner. Due to real life situations (more about it here) I will probably be able to draw the winner next week only. However, only entries made by Oct. 19 will be considered. 

What am I giving away?

gavalda

My giveaway today is a book I really, really liked. It is a copy of “I wish someone were waiting for me somewhere” by Anna Gavalda. You can read my thoughts about it here.

If you like short stories, French flair and stories about men and women this should be just the right book for you.

Edit: Seems my plan to use Rafflecopter doesn’t work out as the widget doesn’t seem to work properly. So, we’ll change the plan slightly. All you need to do is comment below this post and tell me why you would like to get this book. Please don’t forget your email address! That’s it.  

Oh, and yes, the giveaway is international.  

I hope you are enjoying your stay at my blog and that you have a look around. If you would like to know about future giveaways and new posts in general please consider subscribing to my RSS feed or follow me on twitter. You can also add me on Google+.

  1. Seems I am the early bird over here as far as comments on the post is concerned.

    Well Thanks for the giveaway and if it is open worldwide please enter me.

    I looked up the book and a lot of the authors are unknown to me, so this would be an excellent time to try them out.

  10. I’ve never read anything by Anna Gavalda, and I don’t read short stories that often. Excellent reasons to read this book! I also like stories with French flair. Please enter me in your giveaway.

  11. I’m reading a lot of short stories at the moment, and based on the write up this would make a fantastic addition to this current phase of mine, thanks.

  12. Seems like an interesting book, cover is dark and mysterious, plus i haven’t read anything outside YA for a while so this could be a good choice =)

    thanks for the giveaway

  13. Hi:)

    Thanks for the great giveaway.

    I just read your review of the book and it has intrigued me. Thank you for bringing this book to my attention. As a Psychology student, human behaviour and thought processes (including the human need to connect) are subjects of great interest to me. I would love to read this book as I believe it will provide a great deal of insight into the human condition. I believe the characters and situations will be relatable and enjoyable.

    Thank you for this opportunity:)

  22. I LOVE anything with a little French flair, hence my website (a little tête-à-tête)! Plus, short stories are so perfect for when I need a little reading time in my busy schedule.

    Thank you so much for the chance!!!

  24. Who can resist a giveaway? Even me, who never wins anything. And French flair. I can never resist French flair.

    I have a little giveaway every month on my blog, though these are often (usually, actually) decidedly non-literary. I’d love to have you stop by and become a follower (for some reason, I’m obsessed with having followers). If this is not enough reason to come by, I might hope you would enjoy reading my post today, a revisit to Maira Kalman’s Principles of Uncertainty.

    I also have coffee and chocolate.

    Please come by.

  29. I’d love to have this book because I am a big fan of Anna Gavalda. I loved Zusammen ist man weniger allein. I also read her book Consolation which wasn’t that great, but I would want to Gavalda again.
