Partial to the Past Blog Hop Giveaway!


What a great idea that Holly had for hosting a Historical Fiction focused blog hop!! I have seen many many blog hops, but not one focused on my favorite genre!
Can’t wait to clear off some shelves!

I want one easy squeezy box to ship out.. Who wants to take these off my hands?
One Lucky Historical Fiction lover will receive all of the following:

Kate Emerson’s At The King’s Pleasure
Catherine Delors’ For the King
Cassandra Clark’s A Parliament of Spies
Sandra Worth’s Pale Rose of England
Michelle Moran’s Madame Tussaud
Linda Urbach’s Madame Bovary’s Daughter
Rosemary Rogers’ The Wildest Heart
John J. Miller’s The First Assassin
CW Gortner’s Confessions of Catherine de Medici
Sherry Jones’ Four Sister All Queens

TEN Books!

These are all Used Galleys or advance readers copies available to bloggers. I realize that many of you may have your own copy of at least one of these, but perhaps you have a friend to pass them along to. It is much easier for me to put them all in one box, and frankly I just kept going till the box was full. Their condition is used and are good reading copies.

These are all Historical Fiction, one historical romance, a few historical mysteries… a great mix in my opinion!
So.. if you would like to win this box of ten books, comment here with your email address and tell me which ones caught your eye enough to make you want to enter the contest. It would also be very nice of you if you could tweet or facebook this giveaway, and of course I would LOVE it if you would follow!!!
Giveaway ends 8/30/2012. Open to US followers of Burton Book Review.

I've been in and out of the hospital and reading has really helped, I know you've had a hard month too, and just wanted to let you know, you're blogging really helps lift you're readers spirits.
