Welcome to The Literary Blog Hop!
My Giveaways: The Story of a New Name by Elena Ferrante
The Children Act by Ian McEwan
(I will ship to international addresses.)
Books Can Save a Life is participating in the 2015 Literary Blog Hop, hosted by My Book Self.
Between now and midnight on Sunday, April 12, you can hop over to a dozen or so blogs, all offering giveaways of books, book gift cards, or bookish items. Click HERE to see the many fabulous blogs participating in this hop!
I will be giving away two works of literary fiction by renowned authors. (One book each to two lucky winners.) Just leave a comment about books on my blog (see left sidebar) between now and April 12 and you’re eligible. Winners will be notified via email and will have 48 hours to respond or an alternate winner will be selected.
According to The New Yorker, “Elena Ferrante is one of Italy’s best-known least-known contemporary writers.” An international literary sensation, Elena publishes under a pseudonym, so her identity remains unknown. I’m pleased to offer The Story of a New Name, the second in Ferrante’s best-selling Neapolitan trilogy. You’ve just got to experience her remarkable voice! Click HERE to read a previous post about Ferrante.
Ian McEwan has long been one of my favorites. The Children Act is the haunting story of a teen-age boy with a life-threatening disease who refuses medical treatment on religious grounds.

I would love to win The Story of a New Name, but both books sound great. Thanks for the giveaway.
Thanks for the chance.
Both of these books sound intriguing! Thanks for the chance!
The Story of a New Name seems interesting. I’ll love to discover more of Italian lit. Thanks.
Valorie, I’m too curious about these intriguing books not to enter the contest. One can never have too many books since they’re the good friends that are always welcome to stay past tea-time.

Thanks, Wendy, I’m so glad you stopped by. I always have plenty of book guests when I take tea!
Hi Valorie! Thanks for this wonderful giveaway; both books sound very interesting. I’ve enjoyed most the Ian McEwan books I’ve read since first reading Atonement years ago. But I’ve also been very curious of Elena Ferrante’s books, I’ve heard so many good things about the series and I’m always up for reading more Italian authors so I think I’m more interested in her book between the two 🙂
Lianne, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed in Ferrante. I truly haven’t read anyone else like her. I’m so glad you stopped by.
I’m excited to discover your blog! I blog about Children’s/YA/Adult literature and spirituality so am really interested in your discussions of books here. I would be happy to win either of these books. I have been wanting to get into the Ferrante series for awhile so this is a perfect giveaway! Thank you!
Katie, I’m glad you stopped by. I will head over to your blog too. Back in the day I was a nonfiction children’s book editor so I always love people who love children’s & YA!
Thanks for the chance to win some great books, I now follow you on fb as CindyWindy Blogs.
