Under The Sea Giveaway Hop!



Welcome to the Under The Sea Giveawy Hop, hosted by The Musings Of ALYMBNENR and I Am A Reader Not A Writer and is all about books with water themes, whether fantastical or not!

The only book I've read recently that features anything watery is Aimee Friedman's Sea Change but one of my favorites of the last few years is Elementals - Water by Peter Dickinson and Robin Mckinley, a book of six short stories featuring watery themes!



The winner will get to choose a watery themed book of their choice from the Book Depository as long as they live in a country that BD delivers too.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Check out the links below for all sorts of watery giveaways!

  1. OKAY.. this is a hard question! Mermaid wise.. I have a few favourites - I loved Monstrous Beauty, Ripple, and Fathomless.. all gorgeous ad super-dooper well-written. Other than that.. well, there is always The Dressmaker.. it's about Titanic, and we all know what happened to it.. does that count? :) I don't think I've read any other sea-themed books :D Unless we're taking pirates and all then I guess The Treasure Island would count!:D

    Thank you for the contest!!
    I have some International / US/Canada giveaways going on right now, too, please stop by and take a look (in the left sidebar!)

  55. The one that comes to mind is "Away" by Jane Urqhart about a woman who is drawn to the water as she discovers a man who she pulled from the water---the man she falls in love with. It's a lyrical book, lovely, but sad. Thanks for the giveaway. :D
