It's My Birthday Week: Today I'm giving away A Mad Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller!!

Well, well, well! Today it's Saturday and it's the day before my birthday, so it's the last day of the giveaways!

And I've saved quite a special book for last. This has to be hands down my favourite debut of the year, I adore this book to bits and I continue to push it on every single one of my bookish friends that still hasn't read it! I feel that it's also one of those books that hasn't got as much hype as it deserves, so I'm doing my part, small as it may be to get it out there more!

As all the previous giveaways, this one is open INTERNATIONAL!






A Mad Wicked Folly is historical fiction, and what a wonderful book it is! I loved the period that the book is set on, and all the fight for getting the right to vote for women. Something that we take quite for granted nowadays, but it's been so for less than a century and in some places it isn't still recognized. Sharon Biggs Waller did an amazing job at making us feel the restrictions of society and at least for me, to get really angry to see how society in general, and not just men, treated the Suffragists.

I adored the book so much that not only I gave it 5 stars on my review HERE but I also made decorated cupcakes inspired by it in my Ink & Batter feature!

Now if you want to get a copy of this gorgeous (in & out) book and I do hope you do, just enter the Rafflecopter below!

  5. If I could choose a dessert to have on my birthday it would be a really fancy cupcake. I'm always searching for the most eccentric cupcakes. I've had everything to cherry-limes to s'mores. A classic I always have though is tuxedo cake. Its the best of both worlds, chocolate and vanilla.

  6. COOKIES! I love cookies. I am a total cookie person over all the other desserts. The more chocolatey the cookie, the better!! Hope you've been enjoying your birthday week. Entering your giveaways and reading all your posts have been really fun. :)

  14. Here in our country (the Philippines) we have this dessert called Leche flan. I believe it's custard for other people? Hahaha, I really don't know. But um yeah, everytime there's an occasion in our home my mom would make lots of them. It has always been my favorite dessert. Oh, also, brownieeeees.
