Escape in a Book: Give Away Week

‘A significant pattern change in the weather is on the cards for the UK, with much colder conditions set to develop through the weekend and into next week.’
So said The Weather Network on Friday, marking this week as Extremely Chilly. Not only that- January really is upon us, it’s becoming less and less acceptable to reminisce about Christmas and I for one have already forgotten my New Year Resolution (something to do with ‘chocolate’ and ‘less’). What do we recommend to get out of this slump? Well, books, of course. The power of a good novel to transport you to foreign shores is the perfect antidote to the January blues, and we’ve selected some favourites to give away to you this week on Twitter.
All you have to do is tell us your favourite novel set abroad to win one of the books we’ll be tweeting about this week. Here’s a taster of some to look out for…

The Australian island of Janus Rock is where secrets are created in this heart-wrenching novel.

Sticky, sweltering Mallorca is the backdrop for this highly charged story.









Tasmania and Antarctica are the locations in this atmospheric book.

Lake Como. Enough said.









Our protagonist runs away to Ireland in this novel of secrets uncovered…

Sark, a tiny Channel Island, sets the scene for this sweeping, gorgeous novel.









Travel in time as well as location in Santa’s latest novel.

Windswept Norway may be as cold as here, but this novel will sweep you away.

  1. Oh Crikey, there are so many! My all time favourite novel set abroad would have to be The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon – a wonderful, wonderful story and Barcelona perfectly described
