Historical Fiction Giveaway Hop

One of my favourite genres is historical fiction, so I'm delighted to be taking part in the Partial to the Past Historical Fiction Giveaway Hop, hosted by Bippity Boppity Book.  Since starting this blog, I have read and reviewed 56 historical fiction books so I thought I would give the winner of my giveaway an opportunity to choose any book they like from the historical fiction books I have reviewed.  With 56 to choose from, there should be something to suit most historical fiction fans.

You can find my reviews by genre here, or by clicking on the 'reviews by genre' tab.  Scroll through the first few categories and you will come to the historical fiction section.

* This is an international giveaway.  Anyone can enter as long as the book depository ships to your current address.
* One entry per person, enter by completing the form below
* If you win the giveaway, I will contact you by email and give you 48 hours to respond with your shipping address before another person is selected.
* You are free to change your choice of book if you win the giveaway so don't worry too much about it, I'm just interested in which books will be the most popular.
* You don't have to follow my blog although new followers are of course very welcome.  If you want me to visit your blog in return, make sure to leave your blog address :)
* Giveaway ends midnight, August 30th.

  1. Hi Sam!
    YAY what an awesome giveaway, thanks so much! I've got TONS of historical fiction waiting to be read, and it'd be great to actually have my own copy instead of borrowing, haha :)


  2. Thank you for this giveaway! I have read so many of your reviews. I'm new to your blog of course, but I have been checking out your past reviews. I also loved Shanghai Girls and Dreams of Joy after reading Snowflower and the Secret Fan first. I have been wanting to read The Dovekeepers and was excited to see your review being so positive!

  3. hi Sam! thank you for being gracious. this is a really cool giveaway!

  4. thank you a lot for this international giveaway

  5. You've read so many historical fiction titles! It was hard to choose one :) I'm also really interested in Russian history so many of your Russian titles appealed to me. I'm adding them to my library list for some winter reading. Very cool hop- I didn't know about it until now! Thanks for the giveaway, Sam!

  6. Marvelous giveaway, Sam! I had a hard time limiting my choice for the entry -- you've read so many great historical fiction novels! Love your tastes.

  7. What a lovely giveaway - and I am pleased to see what books we have both read! I have picked one I have had my eye on for a while.

    Did not realise that you had sorted all your reviews out threw genre, what a handy little link! Not sure if I have enough hours in the day to sort mine out like that - perhaps alphabetically might be easier! That will become a one day job or one for the Christmas Holidays, my next break.

  8. I could spend a long time going through your review archives. I've seen some of those reviews- and added some of those books to my TBR pile already. But there are even more that look good.

  9. Thanks for the giveaway! You've read and reviewed some awesome HF books (and others). I see that you're reading The Vampire Lestat. I LOVE Anne Rice and that book. I've read the Vampire Chronicles twice through Tale of the Body Thief and I've read Queen of the Damned four times. It's my favorite book! I saw that you're a member of The Classics Club. I'm following you now via email. =O)

  10. Honestly, I haven't read any historical fiction in English before, for my English is not that good to understand the language. But I'd love to try some.
    Thanks for the giveaway, especially for making it international. :)

  11. Thanks for the opportunity ;) I adore historical fiction!
