Bestseller Giveaway: 35 Prizes, 35 Winners

THERE ARE 35 prizes, 35 winners. This new type of giveaway at Bookwrapt consists of individual giveaways for almost 3 dozen of Amazon’s top bestselling books, plus a grand prize giveaway for a Kindle Paperwhite.

This is my favorite giveaway among those I’ve entered.

You get to pick the author and the bestseller she/he is offering in the giveaway.

As you can see, I’m providing Give Me Your Hand by Megan Abbott. On BookBub, I’ve given it 4.5 stars.

If you’re a reader, you know reviews are personal, and subjective. Mine, is not. Ms. Abbott captures her intent with precision, in my estimation. Love it or hate the subject or the story, the technique and talent with which she attacks her plot line is pure. What more can a reader ask?

I have noticed, however, that women authors in the thriller category get among the harshest reviews. The subjects we tackle aren’t comfortable for some, and the risks authors like Gillian Flynn, Megan Abbott, Rachel Hargrove and Barbara Copperthwaite, as well as other authors down the same shelf take have historically been written by men. The bad acts perpetrated by men.

From New York Magazine

As the afternoon shadows lengthen, our conversation ranges from the recent death of Philip Roth — “His books were smart and dirty, and until then, I didn’t know you could be both,” [Megan Abbott] wrote in an appreciation — to Flowers in the Attic… “All those dark feelings you’re not supposed to have as a girl, it gave you license to have,” Abbott says. It’s another novel with — spoiler alert — a female killer. “There’s so few examples of the dead boy who everybody fantasizes about or projects things onto,” she muses later. “It just never happens.” I ask why. “Patriarchy!” she replies.

Hope you jump into the giveaway.
