Literary Giveaway Blog Hop

The Literary Giveaway Blog Hop is an event taking place from Saturday February 18th until (and including) Wednesday February 22nd, hosted by Judith @ Leeswammes Blog.

So for this literary hop I am offering the winner a choice from a range of novels published by Australian authors.
