As a book blogger, I love books. I can spend hours looking at books, reading blurbs and of course sniffing them. Don't knock it til you've tried it! So imagine how sad I feel when I have them rationed.
With my birthday coming up at the end of next week, family and friends ask me what I'd like for my birthday and just as I'm about to reply with a request for the latest book I've had my eye on, they jump in with "but I'm not buying you any books because you've already got more than enough"
OMG! Really?? How can you have more than enough? There are so many fabulous books out there I haven't read yet and that I NEED to add to my bookshelf, kindle . . . . . .and other various places around the house. I have to try and sneak them into the house without my husband seeing them and remember to hit the "Don't share" button on Amazon whenever I buy a kindle version. Whoops that's me in trouble if he reads this! Despite being an avid reader himself, he just doesn't understand the addiction I have for books. A couple of days ago he proudly announced that he'd read all of the books on his kindle. Yes, you read that right, ALL of them! How the hell did he manage that? I've got 17 pages and counting on mine and I haven't bought any for ages, well, apart from a sneaky visit to Amazon last week to buy This Love, the latest book by Dani Atkins 😳 but don't tell my husband!
So I've decided to share the book love by giving away one of my own books. I've enlisted the help of my two trusted hippo helpers/models, Hamlet and Howie and they've chosen the book that I'm giving away.
If you haven't read it yet, here's the blurb:
A tragic accident. It all happened so quickly. She couldn't have prevented it. Could she?
In a split second, Jenna Gray's world descends into a nightmare. Her only hope of moving on is to walk away from everything she knows to start afresh. Desperate to escape, Jenna moves to a remote cottage on the Welsh coast, but she is haunted by her fears, her grief and her memories of a cruel November night that changed her life forever.
Slowly, Jenna begins to glimpse the potential for happiness in her future. But her past is about to catch up with her, and the consequences will be devastating . . .
To be in with a chance of winning this fantastic book, and a few extra goodies as well, all you have to do is leave a comment for my family and friends telling them why you think they should buy me books for my birthday!
You've got until 7pm on Saturday the 8th of April to enter and the lucky winner will be announced here later that evening. This giveaway is open to UK and Ireland residents only due to postal costs.
