Giveaway: Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

Finnikin of the Rock
As it happens, there are multiple copies of this at my house, so surely I can give one away to a good home. I reviewed Finnikin of the Rock here: not quite for me, but as you know, that doesn't mean it's not for anyone else! I like matching books with people, and it's often more fun to match that book that wasn't quite for you up with a reader who will enjoy it wholeheartedly.


To enter the giveaway, please leave me a comment no later than midnight Friday with your e-mail address (okay to break it up @ your e-mail to stop spam) and your favorite story with swords in it, and why. You must be a follower to win, but that's on your honor, as there are lots of ways to "follow" (and to be honest, I don't even check).

When I wake up on Saturday, I'll choose a random winner, and ask for a U.S. mailing address. I don't get to the post office as often as I'd like, but while the roads are clear for summer, I go about every other week.


  1. Hmm my favorite story with swords in it would be Poison Study! Thanks for the giveaway! (:


  2. Thanks for the giveaway :) I unfortunately don't think I've read too many books with swords... but I love Graceling by Kristin Cashore if it counts :)


  3. Thanks for the giveaway!

    My favorite book with swords in it is Retribution Falls by Chris Wooding because it's like the show Firefly but more steampunky with a tad of the supernatural.

    I would have to say my favorite book with swords in it is...well...that one...or that one...bother. there are so many wonderful books with swords in them, but I am going to have to go with The Lord of the Rings. :)

  6. Thanks for the giveaway! My favorite swords-related story is the Tortall series by Tamora Pierce, because they have great female characters and lots of action.
