    I’d love to win The Handmaid’s Tale please. Thank you for a lovely giveaway, you’ve reminded me I must read my copy of Half of a Yellow Sun soon!

  2. Anindyta Audie Dhea Amanda June 22, 2013 at 7:43 am

    Thank you for the GA.
    I already read Madeline Miller’s Song of Achilles (nearly heartbreaking one) and I have the Kindle file of Handmaid’s Tale. So I’d love to join this and win the Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.
    And thank you again for the GA

  3. Joanna June 22, 2013 at 8:35 am

    I’d love to win Song of Achilles please. Thanks!

  4. Karen June 22, 2013 at 8:47 am

    Having just read a disappointing Margaret -Attwood I need to remind myself of what brilliance she can achieve. So for me I’d love to win The Handmaidens Tale.

  5. Ali June 22, 2013 at 8:55 am

    Hi, great giveaway as I have read two of the three books you are giving away I would like The song of Achilles – I had thought it wasn’t a book for me – but so many people whose opinions I trust have said how wonderful it is I now want to give it a go.

  6. Ally@ Snow Feathers June 22, 2013 at 10:01 am

    Thank you for the giveaway! I have read and loved The Handmaid’s Tale, so I would go with The Song of Achilles 🙂

    I would really love to win “a handmaid’s tale”. After all the commotion about it, I’m really curious!

  16. Bettina Grissen June 22, 2013 at 6:16 pm

    Difficult choice, but I read a lot about The handmaiden’s tale, and it is considerd to be a classic. I would love to read this myself.

  19. The Girl June 22, 2013 at 10:37 pm

    A million moons ago I picked up a copy of The Handmaid’s Tale from a classroom and I was determined toread it. Of course I was way too young and couldn’t get passed the first few pages but ever since ten I’ve had a hanckering to read it. Also it would TOTALLY count as one of my Classics of the year!

  20. Nupur June 22, 2013 at 11:36 pm

    Umm soooo glad I discovered your blog! I LOVED The Song of Achilles and recommend it to EVERYONE. Actually, in my review I kind of just yelled at people to read it.

    And The Handmaid’s Tale. . . have read 3x and is my all time favorite book.

    So I’ll pick the other one! 🙂

  36. Frederikke June 23, 2013 at 7:08 pm

    You know what, there’s nothing better than giveaways with unusual choices of books from different genres. Honestly, it’s the best. I must say I’m intrigued by all three, but I’d have to go with The Song of Achilles. 🙂

  37. Judith June 23, 2013 at 7:58 pm

    Thanks for joining the hop once again. Good choices: I’ve read the first two and own the third one (so don’t enter me).

    Have fun with the hop.

  51. Kristin June 24, 2013 at 10:09 pm

  52. Laurie C @ Bay State Reader's Advisory June 24, 2013 at 11:38 pm

    I like all three choices, too, but have already read The Handmaid’s Tale. Song of Achilles is on my TBR list because it was a Massachusetts Must-Read this year, picked by Massachusetts Book Award judges, so I would love to win my own copy! Thank you!

    I’d love to win The Song of Achilles! I have loved all three books (you have great taste!) and therefore would like a copy of the one book listed I do not own yet. I am curious how it would hold up on reread (and a little nervous about that too?)

  71. Mae June 26, 2013 at 10:13 pm

    Thanks for this opportunity! I just read your review of The Handmaid’s Tale and, although the plot makes me nauseous, I would choose that one. The best books are the ones that shock you!
