So as everybody in Britain knows, this weekend is the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, which means that she’s been on the throne for a whole 60 years. She’s only 4 years away from being the longest reigning monarch of all time, after Queen Victoria.
There’s a public holiday next week and shops everywhere are closing to celebrate. Street parties are popping up and you just can’t walk past a shop window without seeing British flags. Honestly? I love it. I’m a staunch monarchist and it’s wonderful to see everybody uniting to celebrate our Queen.
Ellie, from Curiousity Killed the Bookworm, is also doing her part! She’s set up the Jubilee Giveaway Hop and Booking in Heels is proud to be a part of that.
Two people will win one of the following books by British authors. If you want a later book in that particular series, that’s okay too. Open to anywhere The Book Depository ships.
So, that’s –
We Bought A Zoo by Benjamin Mee
The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne
The Prestige by Christopher Priest
How to Be a Woman by Caitlin Moran
Before I Go to Sleep by S.J. Watson
The Pirates! in an Adventure with Scientists by Gideon Defoe
