2018-09-24-weekly-book-giveaway-year-one-by-nora-roberts

This week's Book Giveaway is Year One, the first book in Nora Roberts's Chronicles of The One series.

This week's Book Giveaway is the graphic novel adaptation of Ransom Riggs's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

2018-08-06-weekly-book-giveaway-dune-by-frank-herbert

We are currently giving away a copy of Deborah Harkness's novel A Discovery of Witches, which the author describes as a book about books. I'm going to post our full review shortly, but: no, it isn't. A.S. Byatt's Possession is a book about books, as are Jasper Fforde's Tuesday Next series and...

Weekly Book Giveaway: Royals, by Rachel Hawkins

2018-07-16-weekly-book-giveaway-royals-by-rachel-hawkins

If you're going through Royal Wedding withdrawal, we have just the book for you: we're currently giving away a copy of Rachel Hawkins's new YA novel Royals. Sure, this book is pure fluff, but it does feature embarrassing relatives, snotty aristocrats, silly hats, and an American/royal engagement, so the parallels are uncanny, at least as far as I'm concerned. A full review will follow shortly...

We are currently giving away a copy of this extremely ugly but amusingly-titled P.G. Wodehouse collection: Wodehouse on Crime: A Dozen Tales of Fiendish Cunning, originally published in 1990. A full review will follow shortly, but meanwhile, take a gander at that guy lurking on the far left of the cover. Doesn't he look like a beefier Benedict Cumberbatch...

This week's Book Giveaway is Jules Feiffer's 1995 children's book A Barrel of Laughs, a Vale of Tears. You'd be forgiven for thinking this is one of those deeply weird, self-published books (because that's what it looks like), but I promise that is only half true. A full review will follow shortly.

This week's Book Giveaway is The Unknown Ajax, one of my favorite books by Georgette Heyer. The title refers to a character in one of Shakespeare's messier tragedies (Troilus and Cressida), but, thankfully, Heyer's storytelling is considerably more fun. A full review will follow shortly...

2018-05-29-weekly-book-giveaway-act-like-it-by-lucy-parker

This week's Book Giveaway is Lucy Parker's debut romance novel Act Like It, published in 2016. It's been a while since I've discovered such a promising new-to-me author, so I'm both excited (yay, she has two more books out!) and chagrined that I just started a month-long shopping ban (delayed gratification is for suckers!).

This week's Book Giveaway is Patricia Briggs's latest Alpha and Omega novel, Burn Bright. I'm hoping this cover art isn't literal, because the idea of being tangled up in thorns is legit creepy. A full review will follow shortly...

2018-05-07-weekly-book-giveaway-not-if-i-save-you-first-by-ally-carter

This week's Book Giveaway is Ally Carter's latest YA thriller, Not If I Save You First. I usually like Carter's books, but I'm a little confused about this cover art. Are those letters... popsicles? Candy? Jello shots? It's a mystery. A full review will be posted shortly...

This week's Book Giveaway is the first volume of the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which combines the first six issues of the much more horror-focused reboot of the Archie comic Sabrina the Teenage Witch.

This week's Book Giveaway is the first volume of Naoshi Komi's series Nisekoi, originally serialized in Shonen Jump magazine. The back cover promises a "laugh-out-loud feel-good" time. (Here's hoping this series can deliver on all those hyphens.) A full review will follow shortly...
