Booklover Bites – Audiobook Challenge, Literary Blog Hop and Giveaway Winner

2015 Audiobook Challenge Progress

audio2015As we reach the three month mark, how am I doing with my Stenographer level (10 – 15 audiobooks) commitment to the 2015 Audiobook Challenge?

Not as well as I’d hoped I’m afraid – only 2 audiobook reviews completed:

1. Cairo by Chris Womersley, narrated by Damien Warren-Smith
2. Present Darkness by Malla Nunn, narrated by Rupert Degas

Both really great narration, and excellent stories – clicking on the links will take you to my reviews. Must do better, because whenever I get immersed in an audiobook I love it. Next up on my audiobook list is:

3. The One Plus One by Jojo Moyes, narrated by Elizabeth Bower, Ben Elliot, Nicola Stanton, Steven France

You can sign-up for this challenge and see what other participants have been listening to HERE.

Literary Blog Hop – You Choose

blog-hopI have signed up to offer an international giveaway as part of the upcoming  Literary Blog Hop that will run over April 3 -12, hosted by My Book Self.

My giveaway will offer entrants the chance to win a paperback copy of their choice of a title from a list of say 3-5 great literary titles I’ve reviewed here at Booklover Book Reviews.

I am asking for your help in coming up with that list of titles.

The books I’ve categorised as ‘Literature‘ can easily be found by selecting the appropriate link in the Book Reviews by Genre listing in the left sidebar.

In the comment section below simply tell me which book(s) you’d like the chance to select from in this giveaway, and they will be considered for inclusion. I look forward to seeing which titles you identify!

*Note book value, popularity with other respondents and availability via Book Depository will factor into my decision as to whether it will be included in my final list of potential prizes.
