It’s time for the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop again. I love this giveaway hop. A lot of the hops around are centred on YA fiction, so it’s great to see some giveaways of books which are more of the types of books I would like! The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop is hosted by Judith @ Leeswammes’ Blog. It’s one of my favourite blogs so I recommend you go and have a look even if you’re not taking part in the hop.
This time I’m giving away a copy of The Memory Keeper’s Daughter from my own shelves. This giveaway is only open in Europe, sorry.
I’m doing something a bit different this time. Everyone who enters gets one free entry. Then we’re going to play a game for extra entries.
Below are the first lines of five literary novels. For each book you can guess correctly I will add an extra entry. If you’re not entering but would like to play the game then you can leave your answers in comments which I will switch to moderated for the time of the hop.
Fill in your answers on the form below, you’re answers will only be visable to me.
Right her are the quotes, I have blanked out any words which would too easily give out the answer:
“It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen”
“Dr ****** had enjoyed a satisfactory day in which none of his patients had died or got any worse”
“The world begins anew with every birth, my father used to say. He forgot to say, with every death it ends”
“‘Marx has completely changed the way I view the world,’ declared the Paliéres boy this morning, although ordinarily he says nary a word to me”
“When he was thirteen my brother *** got his arm badly broken at the elbow”
Have a look at the linky list to enter more giveaways.
Thank you 🙂

Today is my birthday, and it also happens to be the week of a Literary Giveaway hop so I thought I would share the love by joining in.
I’m making it pretty simple this time. 1 entry each and no ways of getting extra entries (but feel free to follow me, tweet, add me on facebook, comment, whatever!)
The rules are:
1) I’ve listed 25 books below, one which has been published in each year of my life (except 2013, because I haven’t read any books published in 2013 yet) you can choose one of the books from this list to win- I’m giving away one book only.
2) To enter fill in the form, answers are only visible to me and your information will not be used for any purpose other than this giveaway
3) To enter you must live in a country to which The Book Depository offers free delivery.
4) You don’t have to be a blogger to enter, you don’t have to be subscribed to my blog, following me on twitter, liking me on facebook or a fellow participant in the hop- but do feel free to do any of those things!

Judith is again running the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop on her blog Leeswammes’ Blog. This time it will take part from the 23rd to the 27th June.
The Literary Blog Hop is different because bloggers only give away books with ‘literary merit’. No romance, no Y.A and no urban fantasy. I like this because often I find giveaways fall into these genres, and they aren’t the genres I tend to read. I guess you can say it’s a breath of fresh air.
I think it’s been a while since I last did a giveaway too so I’m looking forward to this one.
If you want to join in sign-ups are open until 20th June here at Leeswammes’ Blog
