Today is Day #2 of Armchair BEA 2011! (Not sure what that means? Check out the Armchair BEA site for details.) It’s my first year participating. Today’s topic is: Giveaways Galore, and/or the Best of 2011. (There are lots of giveaways happening throughout Armchair BEA, but especially today. Check out the Armchair BEA site to see them all!)
I couldn’t choose which topic for the day I wanted to write about, so I decided to combine them: I’m giving away a copy of my favorite book of 2011, which is…
The Bee-Loud Glade by Steve Himmer!
The Bee-Loud Glade is my favorite new book of 2011 so far. I would love for more people to read it. It’s about a man named Finch. When we meet Finch, he’s an aging hermit. But soon he begins to tell the story of how he ended up where he is. It’s clever and entertaining and intriguing, deftly mixing a bizarre but absorbing storyline with a wonderful main character and plenty to think about. It utterly delighted me, and I’d like to share that with one of you. (Interested in reading more? Check out my original review.)
The Bee-Loud Glade was published in April by Atticus Books. (Isn’t the cover cool??)
