Literary Giveaway Blog Hop




Over 50 blogs participating all offering one or more giveaways of literary (non) fiction or bookish items.
 My Giveaway - International

One winner can choose one book from the six pictured below which will be sent from the Book Depository. In keeping with the theme of A Victorian Celebration which I'm participating in during Jun/Jul  my choices for this giveaway are all classics by Victorian authors - Vintage Classics editions.
  
The Ladies


The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot.......tells the story of Maggie Tulliver and her brother Tom as they grow from children to young adults in a small English rural town.
North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell........leaving a rural idyll in the south of England, Margaret Hale is initially shocked by the social unrest and poverty she finds in the north.
The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte.........when the mysterious and beautiful Helen Graham becomes the new tenant of Wildfell Hall rumours immediately begin to swirl around her.

The Gentlemen


No Name by Wilkie Collins.........after the tragic deaths of their parents, Magdalen and Norah discover the devastating news that they are both illegitimate and not entitled to any inheritance.
Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens........John Harmon returns to England after years of exile to claim his inheritance: a great fortune and a beautiful young woman to whom he is betrothed, but has never met. 
The Way We Live Now by Anthony Trollope.........when the Melmottes arrive in London everyone agrees their manners are wanting, their taste is excreable and their lineage and background decidedly shady. But their money is far from revolting!

  6. I either own or have read your selection, so please accept my warmest wishes on enjoying the hop.

    Shakespeare - Marin Sorescu

    Shakespeare created the world in seven days.

    On the first say he made the heavens, the mountains,
    and the abyss of the soul.
    On the second day he made rivers, seas, oceans
    And all the other feelings—
    Giving them to Hamlet, Julius Caesar, Mark Antony,
    Cleopatra and Ophelia,
    Othello and the rest, to master them, and their descendants
    For evermore.
    On the third day he brought the people together
    And taught them about taste
    The taste of happiness, of love, of despair
    The taste of jealousy, of glory, and still more tastes
    Until they went through them all.


    Then some latecomers arrived.
    The creator patted them sadly on the head
    Explaining the remaining roles were for
    Literary critics
    To challenge his good works.

    The fourth and fifth days he kept clear for laughs
    Clearing way for clowns
    Turning somersaults,
    And leaving the kings, emperors,
    And other poor wretches to their fun.
    The sixth day he reserved for administrative tasks:
    He let loose a tempest
    And taught King Lear
    To wear a crown of straw.

    Some spare parts remained from the world’s creation
    And so he made Richard III.
    On the seventh day he looked about for something to do.
    Theatre directors had plastered the land with posters
    And Shakespeare decided after all his hard work
    He deserved to see a show. but first,

    tired down to the bone
    He went off to die a little.

  7. Oh my God, I'm so happy! I'm trying to read all the classics I can. I love them recently! My choice would be The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Bronte or The Mill on the Floss by George Eliot. It's hard to choose!

  8. Oooh, I love Vintage Classics editions! I genuinely can't decide between North and Sounth and No Name. Either would be wonderful, and it's always nice to have an element of surprise! Thanks so much for the giveaway.

  29. Oh, my gosh - amazing choices! I'm participating in the Victorian Celebration too (and I'm hosting a giveaway challenge for participants next week.. shhh!)

    I read Gaskell's Cranford recently, as part of the celebration, and really enjoyed it. I also read Agnes Grey by Anne Bronte and enjoyed that, too. So difficult. BUT I did make a commitment to read all the Bronte sisters' works, and I haven't yet read (nor do I own) Tenant of Wildfell Hall... so I'd like to win that!

    Thanks so much for the chance.
