A Little Giveaway!



I have been blogging now for nearly six months and I wanted to celebrate by having a little giveaway.

I did a review a couple of months ago of The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen which you can find here.

I raved about how much I loved this book and I also mentioned my love of Garden Spells by Sarah too. Well it just so happens I have a double of this book, so I would like to offer one of my gently used copies as a prize on my blog.

Here is the blurb from the back of the book, so you can see if you would be interested in entering.

Welcome to Bascomb, North Carolina, where it seems that everyone has a story to tell about the Waverley women. The old house that's been in the family for generations, the walled garden that mysteriously blooms year round, the rumors and innuendoes of dangerous loves and tragic passions. Eccentric, reclusive, or renegade, there's not a one that wasn't somehow touched by magic.
As the town's successful caterer, Claire has always clung closely to the Waverleys' roots in their enchanted soil, tending the family garden from which she makes her much sought-after delicacies. She has everything she thinks she needs - until one day she finds a vine of ivy creeping into her garden and knows that everything is about to change.Then her prodigal sister Sydney arrives with her five-year-old daughter and a dark secret she hopes to keep well hidden. And suddenly Claire's carefully tended life is about to run gloriously out of control.
Sarah Addison Allen's beguiling and luminous new novel is sure to cast its spell over even the most sceptical heart.

If you love Practical Magic, Alice Hoffman books or even other books about witches, then you might want to enter it.

The cover I have for it, is as above and is all sparkly.

This is an international giveaway, so anyone can enter.

All you have to do is:

For 1 entry - leave a comment in my blog.

For 2 entries - become a follower, or be a follower already and leave a comment.

For 3 entries - Both of the above and publish this competition on your blog.

That is it!

The competition closes on Thursday 18th June at midnight GMT.

Good luck!
