Hi, everyone! This is a very, very special Feminist Sunday because we’re celebrating our first giveaway!

One of the keys to celebrate women writers is to promote their works. As you know, I am a huge Kate Atkinson fan and a few days ago her latest novel, Life After Life got a paperback release. In the book, 11th of February plays a key role and to celebrate the date we have:

  2. You must live in the UK or any of the countries to where BD ships.
  3. You must leave a comment below.
  4. Entries are open from the 2nd of February at 7.30 a.m to the 9th of February at midnight (GMT).
  5. If the winners do not reply in 72 hours after being contacted, another one will be chosen.

What do I have to do to enter?

Just leave a comment below indicating your country.

The winners will be announced on the 11th to celebrate Ursula’s birthday. Best of luck!!

  1. How exciting! I love Kate Atkinson but I haven’t read Life After Life yet. I will keep everything crossed that I win πŸ™‚ I live in the UK. Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I’ve heard this is amazing! If her other novels are anything to go by it surely will be! I’m in the UK.

  3. Yesterday I was in Waterstones dithering over weather to get this or not. I’ve not read any Kate Atkinson before, but this one sounds like something I’d love. Thanks for the giveaway! Oh, and I’m from the UK if being in Waterstones didn’t give it away πŸ™‚

  4. I’ve been waiting for this paperback for nearly a year now! So excited to read it. Fingers crossed for a UK win!

    Thanks for offering this!

  5. So many awesome things have happened around here since I got buried under a pile of unfinished papers! In order: 1) I just finished reading the Feminist Sunday feat. Jazz Age January posts and added Gerda Lerner to my TBR list. 2) Happy birthday again! It looks like you had a wonderful time! 3) I almost bought Atkinson in the airport a couple of days ago, but I didn’t have any room in my bag and had to give it up. So let me enter the giveaway from snowy Arendelle – er, Romania:)

    1. Thank you, thank you! I think you will love Lerner. I am glad you didn’t buy the book and this giveaway comes in such a perfect time. Best of luck!

  6. Hi Elena! I would love to enter for Life After Life, please and thank you! I was browsing through this book in the bookstore last week and really thought it very interesting. I was thinking to purchase it after I’ve finished about 80% off my TBR, but here the opportunity presents itself early, hey! I’ve read Kate Atkinson’s first book, Behind the Scenes at the Museum when it first came out years ago and I really, really liked it. Haven’t had a chance to read other books by her but this one really piqued my interest. Thanks for the chance x

      1. Thanks for entering! And if you loved Behind the Scenes at the Museum, you’ll adore Life After Life. One of the things that came to my mind when I read it was: “Ursula’s ghost haunts Behind the Scenes!”. Somehow, you see a kind of connection πŸ˜‰ Good luck!

  7. What a wonderful idea! Celebration through promotion (and thereby stimulating others to read particular genres/fields/writers) is a great & effective way of going about it, in my opinion. I do the same thing. Thanks for this opportunity – I’ve had this book on my radar since its release, but haven’t managed to get myself a copy, yet. Good luck to all!

    1. Please indicate your country to enter, Adam.

      If it were up to me, everyone would read Atkinson πŸ˜› Best of luck! πŸ˜‰

  8. This book sounds amazing, so I hope I’m lucky. Thanks for giving us an opportunity to win it – how exciting! : )

    1. You’re welcome, Amanda. But if you want to participate, please indicate the country you live in. Thanks and good luck πŸ™‚

  9. Life after Life is a blueprint for everybody – you either see yourself in one vital possibility or you wait for the next. It is nostalgic though, you cannot avoid pondering on the worst outcomes and regretting they may happen! The passage about the bombings is superb, first class war literature.
    Why do I bid for the book if IΒ΄ve already read it? Because I want to reread it, highlight sentences, mark passages, and keep it to reread when I am old (or maybe not? πŸ™‚

    1. Totally, MarΓ­a! I think we ought to own those books we love and change our lives and/or the way we see the world. Best of luck! πŸ™‚

  10. MarΓ­a SuΓ‘rez-Lafuente is from Spain!! ElenaΒ΄s country.
