Win a copy of Atonement by Ian McEwan

It’s been a while since I ran a competition due to troublesome morning sickness and extreme tiredness! So now I am feeling much better since hitting the second trimester, I want to get back to some kind of normality which is blogging and comping.
I first read this exact book over 10 years ago, and is one of my favourites, now I would like to share this beautifully written book with you. Atonement by Ian McEwan was also made into a film starring Keira Knightley and  James McAvoy. 
The story is a gracefully written English drama about two young lovers, Cecilia Tallis and Robbie Turner. Their lives are torn apart one summer’s day in 1934 when Cecilia’s jealous younger sister Briony constructs a lie and accuses Robbie of a crime he didn’t commit. This results in Robbie being placed in prison. The consequences of that day are shown over the course of six decades where Briony spends the rest of her life trying to atone for what she did.
           
You cannot cosy up with a great book without some chocolate, so I am also giving away a few little chocolates to go with Atonement.
To enter this giveaway, please fill in the Rafflecopter below. Due to postage costs this will be a UK only competition. Good Luck.

    When I get the time after running round after my toddler I love to sit in my extension! The light shines through from the garden onto my settee and I love just curling up with a good book in the warmth!

    I saw the film and I burst out crying half way though. totally gutted.
    My favorite place to read is either in the bathroom so I can lock the door or on a balcony somewhere warm and balmy.

    I love being curled up on the couch or a comfy armchair.

    Either in bed last thing at night, or sitting in the car waiting to pick the kids up from school, holidays, well to be honest, anywhere you can just grab 5 minutes!

    I loved the film and have always wanted to read the book. My ultimate place to read is laid out on top of the bed, with some chocolate cold out of the fridge by my side! 😉

    I love to read in an evening snuggled up in bed, then suddenly having gotten carried away with the book realise its 1:30am! But some books you just can not put down.
