I'm Giving Away the Secrets of Love…

(disclaimer: I’m not really)
(clarification: I’m giving away some books, not any actual secrets of love)
(author’s note: I don’t have any ‘love secrets’)

I should have done this giveaway months ago, but you know how March wasn’t the best month in the history of my life which totally jacked up April, and well it was almost mid-May before I really started to feel like me again. So here we are, almost June and I’m finally getting around to tell you about Hector and the Secrets of Love and to see if anyone would like a copy because I’ve got three copies to giveaway.

Written by François Lelord, Hector and the Secrets of Love is the follow up to Hector and the Search for Happiness.  Hector is a young psychiatrist who sets off to track down a rogue scientist who has fled a pharmaceutical company with their love potion. Naturally,  Hector has a few adventures along the way and stumbles upon a bit of love himself (no potion required).

It was a sweet, lovey-dovey, easy read with enough doses of real-life relationship drama to keep it grounded and my eye-rolling at bay (I’m an eye roller… give me a sappy scene and my eyes look straight to heaven, and that may or may not be followed by a finger jabbed into the mouth tongue stuck out kind of look… I’m very mature, I know).  In short, it’s perfect for these summer days; a little sun, and a little Hector, and you’re all set.

There are four chances to win… 1. If you’d like to enter the giveaway, leave a comment telling me your favorite summertime book and you’ll have one entry (and I’ll have a book to add to my ever growing amazon basket). 2. For an additional entry, follow my blog and leave another comment letting me know that you do. 3. If you’d like another chance at Hector, ‘like’ me on Facebook, and leave a comment. 4. And, if you really really want to win, follow me on Twitter (but be sure to let me know, in a comment).

Giveaway closes Thursday, 2nd June.

  2. I found you through …Australia! I have a similar life story only it led me to Norway. You have a beautiful blog and I will love to enter your giveaway. A good book I read some summer ago was : THe colony of unrequited dreams by Wayne Johnston. Not exactly a summer book but a good book nonetheless….

  4. I'm glad that you're back in the swing of things! I hope everything went okay on your trip back to the states. I'm jealous that you're in France again. As for your competition, I believe that I am a follower on Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, and if I lived near you, I'd probably follow you around there, also!As for my favorite summer reading, so far, it has been Committed, the new book by Elizabeth Gilbert. 🙂 Ciao

  5. Sounds like a cute story! My favorite genre of books is crime fiction and mysteries but I have read a few really good books that fit the generally accepted “summer read” category. Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos was amazing and so was Summer Sisters by Judy Blume. Happy reading!

  7. There is this really cheesy book: Sushi for Beginners which I quite not so secretly enjoy and also Serendipity (I think that's the name of it). Which is mostly ridiculous, but I like it for brainless reading.

  11. Just found your blog after following you on twitter. Excited to read about your life in Provence. I lived in Nice for one year during university and did a high school exchange to Hyeres, so I absolutely love the South of France and hope to live there again someday, or at the very least visit again soon.

  12. My favourite summer read is EVERYTHING I can get my hands on because I finally have time to read during the summer. I just bought a kindle and can't wait to get lots of e-books to read while I travel this summer – one of my favourites is Canadian author Margaret Atwood.
