Book Giveaway!


To celebrate 12 months of books reviews at Radio Cardiff I’ve decided to do a little giveaway. Mostly because I like books and I have way, way too many in my house. I’ll be away during my September book review slot, so I’ve asked the listeners (and you guys!) to suggest books for me to read on our honeymoon (nothing too heavy, please 😉 ).

Up For Grabs:

A £10 Amazon gift voucher +  the following books:
The Psychopath Test – Jon Ronson
The C Word – Lisa Lynch
(possibly signed if Mrs Lynch is up for it 🙂 )
Tuesdays with Morrie – Mitch Albom  

Wondering why I picked those books? Jon Ronson I read recently and really enjoyed, Lisa Lynch is a personal hero and Tuesday’s with Morrie is one of my all time favourites.

To enter simply answer this question in a comment below:

What books should I read on my honeymoon?

Please make sure you enter with a valid email address so I can contact you if you win! For an extra entry you can tweet about the giveaway. “Wanna win some books? @miametro is giving them away!” (Please add a separate comment to let me know you’ve tweeted, it’ll make it much easier for me to count the entries 🙂 ) You don’t have to follow the blog or follow me on Twitter (altho I wouldn’t say no if you did, obviously!)

 Just comment with a suggestion, and comment again if you also tweet it. Simple!

The giveaway will be open until 1pm GMT on the 14th of August. Good luck!

Giveaway is sponsored by myself. Open to international entrants.

    The book I think you would like and would be a quick read on your honey moon is Percy Jackson and the Lighting Thief. Its a fantastic book and easy to read.

    I can’t actually think of any books I’ve read recently to recommend. I liked the Gossip Girl series (I like YA books!) and I thought the Pretty Little Liars series was (is) pretty good too – the problem with those is that theres 9 books so far in the series, so perhaps not the lightest thing to carry on the honeymoon!

    Hmm, I’ve looked through my bookshelf and come up with three books for you! Jeanette Winterson’s Lighthousekeeping because it’s enchanting and unconventional love story, the Laments by George Hagen because it’s easy to read, lighthearted and enjoyable, and finally How to be a woman by Caitlin Moran, to prepare you for married life 🙂

    I would think any short volume of poetry should be more than enough reading for a honeymoon.

    Recommending a book/s it’s not easy – if you like fantasy I can recommend Inheritance series – Eragon, Eldest & Brisingr – I haven’t read last part yet and for non-fiction QUITTER Jon Acuff

    I was going to suggest The Garden of Eden by Ernest Hemingway. Fairly short, posthumous novel, heavily edited apparently. It’s the only Hemingway I’ve ever read, and totally unlike what I expected from him. Deeply strange. Sexually ambiguous. I can’t locate my copy, though, and I’ve not read it for over a decade and looking it up now it seems like I’m remembering it through rose-tinted spectacles somewhat as it doesn’t have a happy ending. But the descriptions of a sun-drenched honeymooning couple really glowed. I was probably seduced by the idea of being left alone to write and then… well. But I could feel the sun, taste the pastis.

    My edition (where is it?!) also had a photograph of the photographer Lee Miller on the cover. Which is perfect.

    The Blood of Flowers by Anita Amirrezvani is a beautifully written book and I always reccommend it when I get the chance.

    One of the books I’ve really enjoyed reading recently is John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars. It’s a sweet love story although thinking about it I’m not sure it would be great honeymoon reading as it made me bawl my eyes out!

    Just tweeted this from @pickettywitch as well 🙂
