I’m really excited to announce my next giveaway, which is in conjunction with The Literary Life. The Literary Life is a podcast created, edited, and produced completely by Penguin employees! I’ve found it to be interesting, and they do cover some great books. The October episode is about books that make your heart race (very apt, considering Halloween is in a couple of days) and can be found here.
One of the books featured on October’s The Literary Life is The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters. This is one of those books for which I really wish I could rewrite my review. I feel like it didn’t adequately convey my enthusiasm for this book, and I wish I had given it a full 5/5 rating. After all, it has stuck with me much more than some other books, and was near the top of my “Best Books Read in 2009” list. I really loved this book, so I’m very excited that Penguin has agreed to give away a copy to one lucky reader!
