Literary Giveaway Blog Hop June 21-25 badge

Welcome to the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop!

The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop is hosted by Judith at Leeswammes Blog. Between now and Wednesday, June 25th, you can hop to over 30 different book blogs, all offering one or more giveaways of books or bookish items. All books on offer should be more literary than genre, under the terms of the hop. Follow the links at the bottom of this post to find the other participating blogs.

My Giveaway

For the blog hop I will be giving away my latest literary fiction favorite — The Orphans of Race Point by Patry Francis.

I just loved this book! Set in Provincetown and New Bedford, Massachusetts, as well as a couple of other spots, it’s got a little of everything — friendship, love, passion, betrayal, faith, and family. Very readable with a strong story line and many conversations, but definitely literary in the complexity of the characters and the subtlety of the themes of darkness and light woven throughout. If you liked The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, this book gave me the same mixture of intense emotions while reading — sadness, happiness, and full engagement with the story and the characters. Read my review here!
