It’s been a bit of a slower start to the year on the blog than I’d intended as I’ve been recovering from my fall on the bus (bruised bones are no fun as it turns out), so I’ve decided to kick things of with a giveaway celebrating the fantastic books that made my ‘10 favourite books of 2022‘ list and my book of the year.

First/Second Prize are open internationally. The Runner-up prize is UK only due to the restrictions on sending ebooks.

To enter, retweet the pinned tweet on my twitter, follow me and comment with which book you’d like to win. If you are in the UK and want to be considered for the runner-up, please put UK after the name of the book.

The Giveaway will close at Midnight on January 31st.

Details of the prizes (and a few alternate options as there were ebook only books, and seqels in the mix) are below.

There are wonderful trad books out there and I still really enjoy them, but indie books are just so wonderfully varied and the community so rich that I find myself leaning that way more and more.

Now without further ado…the list!
