Whoop!!! I’m still celebrating here on Swirl and Thread with my Blogiversary!!
As today (8th February) is the actual anniversary of my very first post two years ago, I have another incredible Giveaway this week, this time courtesy of the fabulous Harper Collins (Ire).
I am so excited to have not one, but TWO awesome book bundles up for grabs over on Twitter!!
Firstly I will tell you about the books and then I will fill you in on how ridiculously easy it is to ENTER..
So read on to find out more….
THREE THINGS ABOUT ELSIE ~ JOANNA CANNON
There are three things you should know about Elsie.
The first thing is that she’s my best friend.
The second is that she always knows what to say to make me feel better.
And the third thing… might take a little bit more explaining.’
84-year-old Florence has fallen in her flat at Cherry Tree Home for the Elderly. As she waits to be rescued, Florence wonders if a terrible secret from her past is about to come to light; and, if the charming new resident is who he claims to be, why does he look exactly a man who died sixty years ago?
Set against a background of befuddlement, Battenburg and beige, Three Things About Elsie is a hilarious and heart-breaking novel exploring memory, friendship and old age.
ELEANOR OLIPHANT IS COMPLETELY FINE ~ GAIL HONEYMAN
(Costa Award winner with Sparkly New Cover)
Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive – but not how to live
Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend.
Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything.
One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world that everyone else seems to take for granted – while searching for the courage to face the dark corners she’s avoided all her life.
THE COTTINGLEY SECRET ~ HAZEL GAYNOR
Cottingley, Yorkshire, 1917
When two young cousins, Frances Griffiths and Elsie Wright, announce they have photographed fairies at the bottom of the garden, their parents are astonished. The girls become a sensation; their discovery offering something to believe in amid a world ravaged by war.
One hundred years later… When Olivia Kavanagh finds an old manuscript and a photograph in her late grandfather’s bookshop she becomes fascinated by the story of the two young girls who mystified the world. As Olivia is drawn into events a century ago, she becomes aware of the past and the present intertwining, blurring her understanding of what is real and what is imagined. As she begins to understand why a nation once believed in fairies, will Olivia find a way to believe in herself?
