Launch Party Giveaway!


I know that The Narratologist has been online for a few months now, but still, I think we should have a party! To celebrate the launch of the website and the fact that I can now be found on Tumblr, Facebook, Goodreads, and Twitter, I have decided to host a giveaway.

What can you win?

If you are the lucky winner, you get to choose between two of my favourite books I read and reviewed this year:

Aristotle and Dante Discover The Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz (review) and
The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman (review).

(Note: difficult as it is, you can pick only one. I know. I’m sorry.)

How can you win?

It’s very simple: you leave a comment on a post on The Narratologist. Any post, it doesn’t matter. The more comments you leave, the better your chances, and only comments on the actual website count (so not on Facebook, Tumblr, or any of the other channels). Of course I would love it if you wrote something clever and wonderful that makes me smile, but really, anything goes!

Where do you ship?

Anywhere in the world, thanks to Book Depository! Wherever you live, you can participate in this giveaway.

When will you pick a winner?

January 1st!

If you’ve won, I will contact you and we’ll discuss further details by e-mail.

And finally…

A big thank you to everyone who has encouraged and helped me in setting up this website, I cannot possibly begin to tell you how much all of this means to me. Special thanks goes to Sanne van Let, who has been absolutely instrumental in creating this project and is generally absolutely wonderful. Seriously. Thank you.

Questions? Leave a comment below or on any of the other channels!

    :) I really love your posts – they’re really enjoyable to read!! XD

    I’m glad I already own one of these. If (and that’s a big if, of course) I’m lucky enough to win, and if I wouldn’t have known either of these books, you would have been the person I’d have gone to for your opinion on which one is better. :p

    Thankfully, I’ve already read (and loved) Ari and Dante so please count me in for Ocean at the end of the lane!

    Aahh how exciting! I’ve been wanting to read A&Detc for ages. Thanks so much for doing this.

    Dammit, Yara.. you’re so damn nice! I mean… not only do you run such a great tumblr/site/fb/EVERYTHING, that has CONSTANT updates and suggestions and is probably one of the best literary blogs online at the moment but now you’re also giving away books?!

    This is such a helpful website for finding books (from such a wide range) to read

    I wish I was even the slightest bit as eloquent with my reviews as you are with yours. You actually inspired me to follow my dreams and try to obtain a Bachelor in English Lit & Creative Writing at the ripe old age of 29! It’s ‘only’ online, but it the new online age and all. Just look at your amazing The Narratologist site! Keep up the good work!

      Oh wow, that is quite possibly the greatest thing anyone has ever said to me! I am so proud of you and I hope that your degree will inspire you in all the right ways. And if you have any questions or struggles, you can always come talk to me here!

    I feel incredibly lucky to have found out about this giveaway on the last day! I’ve spent most of 2014 trying to find a local book store that carries Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe but no luck. Fingers crossed that 2015 will be the year!

    I agree with Zoe. I have just heard about the giveaway, but I am not sure if I can serve with a clever post :) Maybe something about luck?: May the odds be ever in your favor! And this statement is as unappropriate as it is…

    Does it count as the last day still if I only found you…and this post at 3:40a.m., 1/1/2015? I’m hoping you’re still asleep — anyone w/your prodigious output must need her rest.

    While I’d dearly love to be the winner of The Ocean At the End of the Lane (my daughter hooked me on it while she was hear for Christmas then selfishly took it back to its proper owner at the end of our time), I feel rather secure already that any book you hold up for your readers (followers? devotees?) must be marvelous.

    Lighting a candle …(can’t shake the old, Catholic ways in this new, secular time).
