Princess Bari by Periscope Books to the #wherebooksgo giveaway today. The winner will be announced on AUGUST 15th!
I am particularly pleased because Periscope is a fabulous new indy publisher and I absolutely LOVE this book. It is my favourite read of 2015 so far. Not only does Sok-Yong create a wonderful resilient heroine but also weaves in magic, fable and politics with lyrical ease. The novel is both timeless and topical as it follows the migrant heroine from Korea to London, and is both poetic and hardhitting.
We already have announced the first winner, and more coming up in the weeks ahead. So take a pic of Hotel Arcadia wherever you are reading it and email, tweet, or instagram it with the #wherebooksgo hashtag for a chance to win Princess Bari AND more wonderful books (see below for the full list).
There are still TWO more copies of David's wonderful book to be won. We also have a copy of Paul Hardisty's debut thriller set in Yemen, The Abrupt Physics of Dying as well as a SIGNED copy (exclusive first edition hard back) of Ragnar Jonasson's Snowblind. And we are adding one of my favourite reads of 2015 on Monday so keep an eye out.
UPDATE. July 13th 2015. We have hit 120 pics though the protagonist of the photograph should not be reading any of the books on our giveaway list. Instead she gets a copy of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, probably far more appropriate for her.
