Back to the Future - A Giveaway Hop Across Time

January 22nd to 28th


This hop features books in the past and future. No present day. Anything dealing with time-travel to historical times are welcome. Unless it's a historical setting where they travel to present time. Historical Novels and Futuristic novels are also welcome even with no time travel.

Here's what I have up for grabs on my stop of the Back to the Future Giveaway Hop:

US - a hardcover of Tempest & the Vortex audiobook

The hardcover of Tempest is unread.  I reviewed an ARC last year and received an unsolicited copy after the fact.  The audiobook of Vortex is ten CDs, which have been listened to once, in order to review it for the publisher.  So, thanks to St. Martin's Griffin/Macmillan and Macmillan Audio for providing the prizes for this giveaway.

If the winner is international, they may choose either a paperback of Tempest (with the new cover that matches the cover of Vortex) or a hardcover of Vortex, to be shipped from The Book Depository.

Rules:
  • This giveaway is international.  As long as The Book Depository ships to your location, you are good to go.  (You can double-check that here.)
  • One entry per household.
  • All entries will be verified.  Any entry found to be falsified will result in disqualification of all entries for that participant.
  • Winner will be notified via email.  Winner will then have 48 hours to respond before another winner will be selected.  Please check your SPAM folders!
  • I am not responsible for lost packages.

And now on to the fun stuff!  You only have to follow my blog to enter, but all other entries/follows are appreciated!  :D

a Rafflecopter giveaway

  1. I would definitely want to go back to the 80s! It's not too far in the past, but it's a time period that everyone is always talking about so I would have liked to see what it was like. I would definitely NOT want to go to the future and never be able to come back to the present.

    What great questions! If I had to go back in time, I'd probably pick the 1980s. I still have great memories of my childhood decade and would love to experience it as an adult. =)

    The question about the future is trickier because I'm curious about it, of course, but not that curious. LOL! If I were more adventurous, then I'd take my chances and hope that I don't find myself in a huge dystopia. But I like where I am now and think the present is a big enough adventure in itself. So I guess I'd stay!

    ReplyDelete
