The idea of the “hop” is that a whole bunch of blogs plan different giveaways, then link up to make it easier for visitors to find and enter them. This hop runs from Friday, June 1, 2012 to Wednesday, June 6, 2012. The winner will be announced on Thursday, June 7, 2012.
For this hop, I’m giving away one of my favorite books I’ve read as an adult. It’s Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke. It’s hard to express how much I loved this book! I’m hoping to give some new readers the chance to discover it too.
Blurb (from Goodreads):
At the dawn of the nineteenth century, two very different magicians emerge to change England’s history. In the year 1806, with the Napoleonic Wars raging on land and sea, most people believe magic to be long dead in England–until the reclusive Mr Norrell reveals his powers, and becomes a celebrity overnight.
Soon, another practicing magician comes forth: the young, handsome, and daring Jonathan Strange. He becomes Norrell’s student, and they join forces in the war against France. But Strange is increasingly drawn to the wildest, most perilous forms of magic, straining his partnership with Norrell, and putting at risk everything else he holds dear.
