Yule Giveaway

Congratulations to Katie, the winner of the Samhain giveaway! :)



For Yule (Winter Solstice) I'm giving away a copy of Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski. It's an absolutely amazing high fantasy novel, first in the series. :)
The giveaway ends on December 19 and it's international. Before entering, please read the rules. Good luck! :)


There are 8 sabbats during the year and for every one I have a giveaway. As one sabbat is over the giveaway connected with it ends and a new one (connected with the next sabbat) starts. That’s why the giveaways last so long. I wanted continuity. Just to make things clear. :)

Showcase Sunday July - October

I was really trying not to buy many books over the last four months. I'm not sure whether I succeeded. :)


The Foreshadowing by Marcus Sedgwick
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell (Limited Collector's Edition)
Heap House (Iremonger, #1) by Edward Carey
Through the Woods by Emily Carroll


Birthday present from my brother. :))


Broken Hearts, Fences, and Other Things to Mend (Broken Hearts & Revenge, #1) by Katie Finn
Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski - This one is signed! But I read the series in Czech translation, as it makes more sence, because he's a Polish author.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee



Some books in Czech translation, mostly Russian classics. I prefer to read any Slavic author in Czech translation rather than in English.
The Double by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov
Faust by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Oblomov by Ivan Goncharov




Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke
Among Others by Jo Walton
On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King
The Clockwork Scarab (Stoker & Holmes #1) by Colleen Gleason
The Spiritglass Charade (Stoker & Holmes #2) by Colleen Gleason 

What did you get? :)
 
 


Harry Potter Moment of the Week

Harry Potter Moment of the Week is a meme hosted by Leah at Uncorked Thoughts. The aim of this meme is to share with fellow bloggers a character, spell, chapter, object or quote from the books/films/J. K. Rowling herself or anything Potter related!

 
This week's question: Which Weasley character would you be?

I love Ron, but I would really prefer to be a female character. So definitely Ginny, she's one of my favourite characters anyway. She's strong, clever, and kind. And pretty good at Reducto spell! :)


Samhain Giveaway
