Books to Movies Giveaway and HOP!



Announcing the Books to Movies Giveaway Hop

October 2nd to 10th

Hosted by Mary from Bookhounds &  I Am A Reader, Not A Writer
This hop features books that have been made into movies or TV shows.   
Some blogs will be giving away the book, some the movie & others both!
Oh my goodness guys!  A Cup of Tea & A Big Book is participating in the Books to Movies Giveaway hop!  Are you as excited as we are?  We love giveaway hops.  They are just so much fun and they give you a chance to look around at other blogs you may not have seen otherwise!

This particular blog hop sounded like quite a bit of fun!  It's always interesting to see what books are next to be put on the movie making train!  Sometimes the movies crash and burn.  Other times, they do so well, they even convince some kids and adults to start reading! Can't complain with that!  At least, I know I can't.  :)

We have three prizes here for this giveaway, so there are three chances to win!  YAHOOO!  Exciting, right?  I think so!  So take a look at the prizes, enter the giveaway, and check out the rest of the blog hop with the linky at the bottom of the post!  Good luck!

Prize 1:
Atonement
Ian McEwan
Ian McEwan’s symphonic novel of love and war, childhood and class, guilt and forgiveness provides all the satisfaction of a brilliant narrative and the provocation we have come to expect from this master of English prose.

On a hot summer day in 1934, thirteen-year-old Briony Tallis witnesses a moment’s flirtation between her older sister, Cecilia, and Robbie Turner, the son of a servant and Cecilia’s childhood friend. But Briony’s incomplete grasp of adult motives—together with her precocious literary gifts—brings about a crime that will change all their lives. As it follows that crime’s repercussions through the chaos and carnage of World War II and into the close of the twentieth century, Atonement engages the reader on every conceivable level, with an ease and authority that mark it as a genuine masterpiece.

Prize 2:
The Maze Runner
James Dashner
If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.

Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Everything is going to change.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

Remember. Survive. Run.

Grand Prize:
Dear John( Hardcover)

The Notebook (Paperback)

Nicholas Sparks

DJ:
 When Savannah Lynn Curtis comes into his life, John Tyree knows he is ready to turn over a new leaf. An angry rebel, he had enlisted in the army after high school, not knowing what else to do. Then, during a furlough, he meets Savannah, the girl of his dreams. The attraction is mutual and quickly grows into the kind of love that leaves Savannah vowing to wait for John while he finishes his tour of duty. But neither can foresee that 9/11 is about to change the world. Like so many proud men and women, John must choose between love and country. Now, when he finally returns to North Carolina, John will discover that loving Savannah will force him to make the hardest decision of his life.
