Book Spotlight and a Giveaway! The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Pötzsch

I have sooooo many books! I have a ton of print books and probably even more e-books. The Book Spotlight feature that I typically post every Saturday is a way for me to clear my shelves and to share some of the books I have. There are a lot of different reasons that I might be letting some of my books go, the biggest one is that we recently moved and I discovered how many books I really do have. This feature is a way for my to cull my collection and to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy them.

The book that I am featuring this week is one that is on my TBR list. When we moved, I discovered that I had this on my Kindle so I am letting my paperback copy go. I really need to read this series!

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!
