Happy Friday! Welcome to the Literary Blog Hop, where book blogs will be hosting giveaways for books from April 3rd-12th. Be sure to check out all the other blogs on the linky below.
So what am I giving away? (Shipped by The Book Depository!)
A gorgeous hardcover Penguin Edition in Clothbound Classics Series of one of my favorite 19th century British sensation novels:
The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins!
Synopsis: ‘In one moment, every drop of blood in my body was brought to a stop… There, as if it had that moment sprung out of the earth, stood the figure of a solitary Woman, dressed from head to foot in white’
The Woman in White famously opens with Walter Hartright’s eerie encounter on a moonlit London road. Engaged as a drawing master to the beautiful Laura Fairlie, Walter becomes embroiled in the sinister intrigues of Sir Percival Glyde and his ‘charming’ friend Count Fosco, who has a taste for white mice, vanilla bonbons, and poison. Pursuing questions of identity and insanity along the paths and corridors of English country houses and the madhouse, The Woman in White is the first and most influential of the Victorian genre that combined Gothic horror with psychological realism.
I can’t say enough about how much I love this book–I first discovered it as a 20 year old student studying abroad in London and I found the book on a shelf in a bookshop on Charing Cross Road. This was my first encounter with Wilkie Collins.
I even saw the musical of The Woman in White by Andrew Lloyd Webber in London years later!
AND I’m giving away An Amazon Gift Card ($10) in case you have The Woman in White and want to shop for a different book! (US Only)
