Another day, another giveaway hop! This week, I'm taking part in the Literature Blog Hop, hosted by Leswammes

This hop came with only a teeny bit of small print, and that was this: "...if you’re giving away a book, that it should have some literary merit." Fair enough, eh?

So! Within the Rafflecopter sign up, you'll get a space to say what book you'd like to win and why you think of it as "literature". I'd say the idea of literary merit is open to interpretation, but figured I'd recommend two books in particular: The Helpas it seems to pup up in most of my "Top Ten Tuesday" recommendations, and Room as I love it so much that I volunteered (and was accepted) to give 25 copies away for World Book Night (why not make it 26, right?).

Nearly 60 blogs are taking part in this hop, so be sure to check out the link list below to increase your chances of winning!

  28. Always Cooking up Something


  1. I´d love to read The particular sadness of a lemon cake, because I have heard a lot of good things about it :)

  2. I would love to have the Wolf Gift! I think anything that Anne Rice writes is pure, perfect literature. If i can escape to another place without leaving my couch... she is my ticket there!

  3. I want dearly, departed because true literature comes form within.

  4. I'd like to win my own copy of 1Q84. I just finished reading it and it left me longing for a reread. In my ideal world, I'd love to win an e-book of this novel, as it weighs in at a hefty 900+ pages!

    Here's my e-mail address: debnance at gmail dot com

    I'm a new follower!

    I'd love to have you stop in and sign up for my giveaways!

  5. I'd love to win Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer. I think it's literature because it deals with issues that makes me think.

  6. I think I'd have to choose 'The Paris Wife' by Paula McLain. It's about the Hemingways, the Fitzgeralds, and bohemian Paris in the twenties - you don't get much more literary than that! :)

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  7. I'd like to read The Sisters Brothers by Patrick DeWitt. I'm interested in this book because it doesn't seem literary to me (it's sort of a comic/violent/Western) but it was nominated for a Man Booker Prize and everyone seems to love it.

  8. I'd love to have my own copy of Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides, and I think it's literature because... I guess because it makes me feel things and has beautiful words that it backs up with a beautiful story, and while the subject matter of literature doesn't have to be beautiful, I think it all ends up being beautiful anyway. That, quite possibly made no sense...

    Also, I agree with you on Room because it is incredible, but not so much with The Help because I have... issues with that book.

  9. The Detective by Imre Kertesz, this was described by The Times Literary Supplement as, " a sophisticated and brilliant dissection of nihilistic power & it's servants" this is a writer whose works I want to explore.

  10. Great ideas so far, guys! I'm going to have a whole bunch of new books to add to My Goodreads Wishlist

    *checks bank balance*

  11. I'd love to win The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. It shows how it really takes a village to raise a child.

  12. I'd like to read Room.


  13. I want to read The Help and Room. Both on my list of things to read.

  14. Hmmm... I would like to win a translated (easier to read) version of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" if one is available. I've read many books that use it as a basis but I have never read it!


  15. I'd love to have the Room book, please! I received the Help and just finished it - absolutely amazing :D

    Thanks !


  16. I'd love to read IQ84! I've received so many recommendations on it that I have to read it!

  17. hunger games - still haven't read it

  18. I'd love to read Before I go to Sleep by SJ Watson. As for it being literature, well I'm basing it on the fact that it seems to be on all the book club reading lists that I've seen for this year so there must be some merit in it!! (And I've read an extract and I'm desperate to read the book now!!)

  19. Wuthering Heights because it is a classic (and it has a great new cover!)

  20. The Maze Runner by James Dashner because I get so many recommendations from people be it those I go to school with or friends on goodreads.

  21. I am very interested to read 'The Room'
    margueritecore [ at ] gmail [ dot ] com

  22. I would like to read The Picture of Dorian Gray. I think it is literature because it was written by Oscar Wilde.

  23. Room has been on my TBR list for a long time, so I would love a copy of it. I think it counts as literature because from all the reviews I've read it is a unique book that will hold merit in the literary community for a long time to come.

  24. You guys all have very good taste! I'll be drawing the winner on Wednesday so keep your fingers crossed!

  25. Stone butch blues by Leslie Feunberg. Its a classic, well written book about the transgendered movement from f-m

  26. thanks for the great book hop
    would love to read the Room,
    because it is different. Heard
    great reviews about this amazing
    sounding book. Have read and enjoyed
    the Help. Also, the Bakers Daughter is
    on my list too. dayle b at telus dot net
    Adore your wall paper

  27. I think I'd like to read the Night Circus. I've heard good things about it and it has a cute cover. :)
