#Giveaway: The House at the End of Hope Street - Menna Van Praag

Which cover do you prefer? The hardcover's blue with whimsical tree, or the paperback's lady who must love books?
I pick the tree only because I don't think shoes should be on books, though I love shoes. Just like shoes don't belong on a kitchen counter. Good thing the cover doesn't make the book. This was an almost perfect read in my opinion, which you can recount the details over here.
So a little while back I hosted a cover reveal and promised a giveaway today. It is for a paperback copy with the new cover. You'll have to pardon the shoes.
Knocked off-kilter by the Worst Event of Her Life, Alba Ashby finds herself in front of a house in Cambridge, England, that she's never seen before. There, a beautiful older woman invites her to stay on the house's usual conditions -- she'll have ninety-nine nights, and no more, to turn her life around. With nothing left to lose, Alba takes a chance and moves in.
She soon discovers that 11 Hope Street is no ordinary house. Past residents have included Virginia Woolf and Dorothy Parker, who have hung around to help newcomers -- literally, in talking portraits on the wall. Here Alba begins a journey that will heal her wounds -- and maybe even save her life.
The House at the End of Hope Street is a charming, whimsical novel of hope and feminine wisdom that is sure to appeal to fans of bestselling authors Jasper Fforde, Lev Grossman, and especially Sarah Addison Allen.

  1. I pick the tree as well, and your point is good, but also, the tree just seems to have that whimsical draw pulling me in.

  7. I like the cover with the lady and the books. But I think she should have found matching shoes! Thanks, Freda, for the giveaway. Looks like a good read.

  8. I'm a little weird, I like both covers for different reasons but the winner for me is the paperback, especially because of the mismatched shoes. Thanks.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
The hubby had lots to say about this one. He was happiest that the film focused on one of the original Spider-man nemesis', Mysterio. He is one of the best Ma…
