Literary Giveaway Blog Hop


Welcome to The Literary Blog Hop hosted by Judith at Leeswames Blog.

The hop will run from November 9th – 13th. Each participating blog will be offering a book or bookish items of a literary nature. There is a linky list of participants below and many giveaways are open internationally.

New visitors, feel free to take a look around. I’m an eclectic reader who enjoys a wide range of subjects and genres. Regular visitors already know I’m especially fond of audiobooks and love to photograph birds.

Giveaway: Five Star Billionaire by Tash Aw

Five Star Billionaire by Tash AwGenre: Contemporary Literature/China
Publisher: Spiegel & Grau
Publish Date: July 2, 2013
Format: Advance Reading Copy | 400 pages
A 2013 Man Booker Prize Nominee for Longlist.

Five Star Billionaire is a dazzling, kaleidoscopic novel that offers rare insight into the booming world of Shanghai, a city of elusive identities and ever-changing skylines, of grand ambitions and outsize dreams. Bursting with energy, contradictions, and the promise of possibility, Tash Aw’s remarkable new book is both poignant and comic, exotic and familiar, cutting-edge and classic, suspenseful and yet beautifully unhurried.
