Well since the last one was so much fun, I’ve decided to hold another giveaway, in fact make that two giveaways! Yep that’s right, two giveaways (and it’s not even a month since my last one!)
First up is my copy of, The End of Mr. Y by Scarlet Thomas, a book I had mixed feelings about, but I know is loved by many of it’s readers, so this could be your chance to make your own mind up, should you win!.
A cursed book. A missing professor. Some nefarious men in gray suits. And a dreamworld called the Troposphere?
Ariel Manto has a fascination with nineteenth-century scientists—especially Thomas Lumas and The End of Mr. Y, a book no one alive has read. When she mysteriously uncovers a copy at a used bookstore, Ariel is launched into an adventure of science and faith, consciousness and death, space and time, and everything in between.
Seeking answers, Ariel follows in Mr. Y’s footsteps: She swallows a tincture, stares into a black dot, and is transported into the Troposphere—a wonderland where she can travel through time and space using the thoughts of others. There she begins to understand all the mysteries surrounding the book, herself, and the universe. Or is it all just a hallucination?
With The End of Mr. Y, Scarlett Thomas brings us another fast-paced mix of popular culture, love, mystery, and irresistible philosophical adventure.
Second, is a pair of books by Michael Molloy I mooched some time back, but have been languishing in my TBR pile, and as other books are calling out to me more at the momemt, I think they may be better served in a new home where they’ll be read and loved!
The Witch Trade:
In a strange world where good is threatened by evil night witches, a thrilling adventure is about to begin. Meet Abby, Spike, Captain Starlight, and Benbow, the Captain’s faithful albatross. Spurred on by Sir Chadwick, the flamboyant leader of the Light Witches, they set off on a journey across shark-boat infested seas to discover the hidden source of all Black Witch power.
The Time Witches:
In this rollicking new adventure, we are reintroduced to Wolfbane, the escaped leader of the evil Night Witches. Wolfbane and his dreadful mother, Lucia Cheeseman, plot revenge on the heroes of THE WITCH TRADE.
Between them, they conspire to summon up a long dead witch who knows the secret of time travel, allowing them to go back in time to change the course of events that led to their downfall. This sequel offers a hilarious second glimpse into the world of THE WITCH TRADE, but for children who haven’t read the first book, it can easily stand on its own as a brand new adventure.
