Huge Historical Fiction Summer Reading Giveaway!

Need some great summer reading material? Help me clear some space! I am buried in books...okay, there are worse fates, but I have to make some room! I've put together seven great historical fiction books, all are paperback, five are advance reading copies. The winner will receive all seven! This will be US only (sorry, I can't afford to ship a heavy box internationally) and you can enter thru midnight eastern on August 10. For one entry just leave your email address in the comments. If you would like additional entries you can leave a comment on any of my reviews for these titles. I have reviews up for all of them except for The Constant Princess, just click on the cover to go to the review. I won't be counting comments on the reviews that say only "please enter me"...any thoughtful comment about the book or review will be counted. Best of luck and many thanks for helping me reduce my stacks of books!!!

I would love to be entered. I've read The Return, which I enjoyed and The Constant Princess (not my favorite Philippa Gregory novel, but certainly not bad). This is fun!

Erin said...

Wow! What a great giveaway. I had already left comments on some of the reviews, and went back to the others and left left comments today. The difficulty of leaving comments when one reads blogs through Google Reader keeps me from commenting more often. Thanks for the giveaway.

I'd love to help you dig your way out of the book-pile. And I like the look of those covers, so I'm going to wander over and read the reviews. Kind of like browsing a bookstore without the coffee.

Terra57 said...

Wow! Nice Giveaway. I have read Daughters of the Witching Hill and loved it to pieces. Have read one other book by Ciji Ware but not this one and all the other authors are new to me. I have recently found a new vice in Historical Fiction and am intralled beyond belief. My hunger is so prevelent for these that my tbr pile is now two tbr piles, one Historical Fiction and one everything else.


Woud love to have a chance at these babies and thanks so much for having such an exciting array of books.
huggs,

I would love to be entered. I have already read Claude and Camille, but not the others. I have friends who love historical fiction that I can pass some of these on to when I am done reading them. :) The one I want most is the one you haven't reviewed. Bummer.

About Me

My Photo
New Hampshire, United States
Bibliophile, Anglophile, Traveller... I have been an avid reader all of my life, since I took the Dr. Seuss Dictionary away from my Mom when I was less than a year old because I wanted to read it myself. In college, where I earned my degree in English Literature, I was often asked "What are you going to do with it?" Now I finally have the answer to that question!!! Being employed as a Flight Attendant for twenty years has given me a lot of life experience and, better still, a lot of time to read. I love to travel for fun, too.
