Clear Your Shelf Giveaway Hop (Canada/US)

Hi, everyone!

Welcome to Stop #80 of the "Clear Your Shelf" Giveaway Hop!

This blog hop is being hosted by Kathy at I'm A Reader, Not A Writer.

This purpose of this hop is to pass along some of the books on our bookshelves to other book lovers!

Over 150 blogs are offering a giveaway of a book that has been previously owned, and we are all linked up together so that you can easily hop from one giveaway to another! The hop runs from Friday, June 15th through Wednesday, June 20th.

Details of my giveaway:

 One lucky winner will win an Advance Reader Copy of Salvage the Bones by Jesmyn Ward! I actually received two ARCs, so this one is in brand spankin' new condition!

This book has won two literary awards:

A hurricane is building over the Gulf of Mexico, threatening the coastal town of Bois Sauvage, Mississippi, and Esch's father is growing concerned. A hard drinker, largely absent, he doesn't show concern for much else. Esch and her three brothers are stocking food, but there isn't much to save. Lately, Esch can't keep down what food she gets; she's fourteen and pregnant. Her brother Skeetah is sneaking scraps for his prized pitbull's new litter, dying one by one in the dirt. Meanwhile, brothers Randall and Junior try to stake their claim in a family long on child's play and short on parenting.

As the twelve days that make up the novel's framework yield to their dramatic conclusion, this unforgettable family---motherless children sacrificing for one another as they can, protecting and nurturing where love is scarce---pulls itself up to face another day. A big-hearted novel about familial love and community against all odds, and a wrenching look at the lonesome, brutal, and restrictive realities of rural poverty, Salvage the Bones is muscled with poetry, revelatory, and real.
