Literary Giveaway Hop 8-12th February

I always love The Literary Blog Hop, hosted by Judith @ Leeswammes

The idea behind the hop is to giveaway a literary book, so no YA or chick-lit here.

As this one falls over my birthday I’m going to do what I did last year, and make a list of books to choose from which I have read, and loved, published each year from the year I was born (1987) to last year. The winner can pick any book from this list. Where possible I have linked to reviews of these books (in bold), if I haven’t reviewed them then I link to amazon.

You don’t have to follow me to win (although it’s nice if you want to). And anyone can enter so long as The Book Depository ships free to your county. Just fill in the form below the list.

1987- Norwegian Wood- Haruki Murakami

1988- Matilda- Roald Dahl

1989- Like Water For Chocolate- Laura Esquivel

1990- The War of Don Emmanuel’s Nether Parts- Louis de Berniéres
