It’s Literary Giveaway Bloghop Time


literarybloghopYay, it’s blog hop time. I am participating in the literary giveaway bloghop hosted by Judith from Leeswammes’ Blog.

I am a little late prepping my giveaway post. Sorry about that.

Here are the books I am giving away in this blog hop:


The Road by Cormac McCarthy is a book I read a couple years ago and liked very much. It’s a bit grim but beautifully written.

In Custody by Anita Desai is a book I finished today. It’s not a new book, it made it into the Man Booker short list in 1984.

I don’t have a review up, but it’s a lovely humorous tale of a man trying to interview a famous poet. It’s humor makes a pleasant juxtaposition against the grimness of The Road.

Rules of the Giveaway

There are no rules. The giveaway is international. Just fill up the rafflecopter and try your luck.

    Thanks for the giveaway.

  • cherylslife

    Both these books sound interesting and I need to get a different genre in the between all my romance and historical books.

  • bn100

    These sound interesting

  • marypreston

    I have heard of THE ROAD, but not IN CUSTODY. Thank you.

  • I read The Road abut four years ago and really enjoyed it but I don’t own a copy. In Custody also sounds like a fun read. Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Elizabeth

    In Custody sounds quite interesting!

  • Courtney Whisenant

    Great choices! I’ve heard great things about both books but haven’t read either πŸ™‚ Thanks for the giveaway!

  • Jenna

    Thanks for the giveaway! I still need to read The Road – nice choice!

  • mastbrat

    I’ve had The Road on my list since the beginning of the year when a friend recommended it

    to me. I need to get it!

  • I really need to get to The Road. I tried to read it a few years ago, but I couldn’t get into it. I’ve been told many times that if I stick with it I’ll be riveted, so I really want to give it another try.

    Thanks for hosting this!

  • I was late with my first Literary Blog Hop post two times ago, was accidentally early last time due to a scheduling mistake, and this time I was right on time but somehow disabled comments so no one could enter my giveaway for a while. I may need to give up on participating, but I love the books that people post about for this hop!
    I have read several books by Anita Desai, but In Custody doesn’t sound familiar. I have tried The Road and didn’t get into it, but maybe having my own copy would make all the difference!

  • stephanie

    Books sound great,holding thumbs

  • seeword

    OK, The Road is on my SHR (Should Have Read) list. In Custody seems like a nice change of pace.

  • Thanks for being part of the blog hop! I loved The Road, good choice. Haven’t read In Custody but I think it’s something I would enjoy.

  • Martine

    Loved The Road, what an enthralling book. Also love Anita Desai so would enjoy reading ‘in Custody’ . thanks for the giveaway.

    I love the way the two books you’ve selected complement each other. They both sound interesting to me. I’m really interested in reading the humor demonstrated by the author of In Custody.
