Witch Week 2015 Giveaway

Posted November 1, 2015 by Lory in giveaways / 30 Comments

This post is part of Witch Week, an annual celebration of fantasy books and authors. This year’s theme is New Tales from Old, focusing on fiction based in fairy tale, folklore, and myth. For more about Witch Week, see the Master Post.

Welcome, Witch Week participants! I’m SO thrilled to have two wonderful books to offer this year, thanks to the generosity of their publishers.

BitterGreens smallBitter Greens by Kate Forsyth was one of my favorite reads in 2015, a lush, opulent retelling of the Rapunzel story that also illuminates the life of a long-forgotten storyteller, Charlotte-Rose de la Force. I loved how Forsyth intertwined history and legend together in such a compelling and dramatic way, and I hope you will too. Thanks to Thomas Dunne Books for offering a paperback copy to one lucky entrant, and to Kate Forsyth for kindly answering some questions about her books and writing process. The interview will appear on November 4. This giveaway is international (Book Depository must ship to your country).

BloodyCFolioThe Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter is our reader-chosen readalong book this year, a dark and sensuous retelling of traditional tales that influenced many later writers. The Folio Society, publishers of beautiful illustrated editions of classic and contemporary literature, is offering their gorgeous version illustrated by Igor Karash and introduced by Marina Warner. This copy is also signed by the award-winning illustrator! Please check out more images from the book at the link, and peruse the Folio catalog while you’re at it. Don’t forget to come back for the readalong on November 5, though. This giveaway is US only.

If you have a US address, you may enter one or both of the giveaways. Two different winners will be chosen. Both giveaways will close at 12 a.m. Eastern Time on November 8. Good luck!

  1. I’d be interested in both: I’d love to have my own copy of Bloody Chamber, and Bitter Greens has been on my Want to Read list since it came out! Thanks.

    Bitter Greens is captivating and memorable. Thanks for this great feature and giveaway.

  3. I don’t live in the US so sadly can’t enter for The Bloody Chamber however Bitter Greens sounds great too; for a while I have wanted to read something by Kate Forsyth. Thank you for holding this great give away.

    • It would be wonderful for you to get to read something by Kate Forsyth very soon. And watch out for another Folio giveaway later in November…this one will be international!

    Hi! I think I’m interested in Bitter Greens because I really like Love’s stories and the principal idea is amazing ♥

    I would love to get both! I adore both Kate Forsyth and Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber, The Bloody Chamber is one of the most formative books for me personally. I only have the ebook version of Bitter Greens and would love to get a non ebook so I can hold and hug it haha because it’s one of my all time favorite books.

    Also I just saw that there will be another Folio giveaway and I’m really excited about that because their illustrations and covers are so amazing, which is why I’d love that folio version of Bloody Chamber if possible.

  6. I’d definitely be more excited about Bitter Greens! The stories in The Bloody Chamber were hit or miss for me and I’ve been intrigued by Bitter Greens for a while 🙂

  7. As soon as I clicked on the Folio Society link all the bells and whistles on my computer went off screaming VIRUS< VIRUS< call this number… which I did not.

    So I am not clicking any more.

  8. I love a mix of fairytale, mystery and history. Would love to win Bitter Greens. I met Kate recently at a writers’ congress and her energy for writing is infectious.

    My only chance is Bitter Greens actually, but I’ve always wanted to read this book and never had the chance to buy it but it’s sounds amazing. The blurb promises an amazing story. Thanks for the chance <3
