Has anyone received an email to say they have won One of the July books yet? I know the last couple of months they have gone out on the Friday following the giveaway so am presuming I have been unsuccessful this month but just thought I'd check!
I didn't get an email to say that I would be receiving a book, so was really surprised when the postman just brought a copy of The White Lie. Thank you so much - a pleasant start to a bleak, rainy day. Looking forward to reading it.
All the books from July's giveaway have now been sent out. We are testing different ways of managing the giveaways to figure out the easiest and most time efficient method. This month we organised the giveaway as usual, picked the winners, informed the publisher but didn't send emails out to inform you that the book was coming. We'll keep you posted on whether this changes again.
July's book giveaways were: You by Joanna Briscoe, Cavalier Queen by Fiona Mountain, The Antidote by Oliver Burkeman, The Child Who by Simon Lelic, Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and The White Lie by Andrea Gillies and The Two Week Wait by Sarah Rayner. If you have received a copy of one of these books please do post your thoughts or reviews on this thread when you've had chance to read the books. Without wishing to sound like a stuck record the more feedback we get, the easier it will be to convince publishers to give us more books to give away in the future.

I've just finished The White Lie - Andrea Gillies. Really, really enjoyed it. Lovely to have a book that takes some reading - recent circumstances have reduced my normal reading to very light/easy reading and it was refreshing to be presented with a book that I could really engage with rather than gloss over - something I may not have done had the book not just popped through the letterbox (can I jsut say surprise books are fabulous - really brightens the day!). Improving my mental health notwithstanding, this is a beautifully written book, intruiging complex characters and a quite gripping plot. Looking forward to more from her.
