Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop!


The Bookhounds giveaway hop is earlier this month to coincide with the 4th of July celebrations in the US... I'm not in the US, I'm British, so the 4th of July doesn't mean a whole lot to me personally but I wish for all those of you who are Stateside to have a lovely time with your families and friends. 

For this hop, I'm giving away one book of the winner's choosing - up to $10 in value - from The Book Depository. 

Rules are simple:

Entry via the rafflecopter only.
One winner will be selected randomly by the rafflecopter at the giveaways end. 
Entrants must be 18 years or older.
The winner must have a postal address that The Book Depository delivers to. 
The prize is for any one book of the winner's choosing up to the maximum value of $10. 
Winner will be contacted by email 48 hours after the giveaway ends.
Winner must respond to Sunny Buzzy Books within 48hrs of being contacted or prize is forfeit and another winner will be selected via the rafflecopter.
The giveaway is open internationally, but the winner must have a delivery dress that The Book Depository delivers to.



Don't forget to stop by the other participating blogs!

  23. For YA, I love Jenny Han, there's such great heart and warmth to her writing, and for classics, I'm a Jane Austen fan, I saw your earlier response about her, and I totally get that, with any kind of classic it's definitely a struggle to adapt to the language and the slower pace of the characters' lives, sometimes it can be forty pages or more before I really feel engaged with the story.

    1. Classics wise I'm a Bronte girl but I do feel the need to read Jane Austin... I feel a Classics reading challenge coming on at some point!

    1. I have a few Neil Gaiman books on audio that I've been putting off because I struggle to pay attention to audio books, lol. I'm thinking I need to give them another try soon. I think if I listened while doing something mind numbly boring - like ironing - I'd be able to focus!

  29. Ugh! I have so many favorite authors that I follow and buy all their books. I guess Anne Rice would qualify as my favorite. The boxset of The Vampire Chronicles was my first book purchase as an adult. I bought it at the PX after basic training graduation. My husband to me to the book signing for Prince Lestat as a valentine day gift and he always orders an autographed copy of every new release for Christmas.
