Anna Karenina Giveaway

If you are like me, you are dying to see Focus Features' Anna Karenina at the movies, but first, like any good book nerd, you are going to want to read the classic novel first.....if you haven't already.  Confession: I have actually never read it, but am hoping to before I see the movie. Have you read it? Let me know what you think.



The movie, which comes out November 30th, has the same director from Pride and Prejudice (love!) and Atonement.  If you haven't seen the trailer, you can check it out here.  Here's some information about the movie:

"Anna Karenina is acclaimed director Joe Wright’s bold, theatrical new vision of the epic story of love, stirringly adapted from Leo Tolstoy’s great novel by Academy Award winner Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love). The film marks the third collaboration of the director with Academy Award-nominated actress Keira Knightley and Academy Award-nominated producers Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner, and Paul Webster, following their award-winning box office successes Pride & Prejudice and Atonement." 
Thanks to Focus Features, I have an exciting giveaway to share with you guys!



Two Winners Will Receive:
Copy of the book (movie tie-in edition)
Official Soundtrack
Votivo Candle with bookmark


Isn't this giveaway awesome! It is for US readers only and the deadline is December 9th. Good luck and let me know if you are looking forward to seeing Tolstoy's Anna Karenina on the big screen!

  1. I have been hearing a lot about the movie, but yet to look into it. Now that I know it has a book...I have to read it before I see it. I don't want it to be ruined for me like every other book I saw on screen first.

  3. With two small kids I doubt we'll get out to see the movie, but hopefully once it goes to video we'll have a chance, as I loved the book! Thanks!

  6. I think I should read the book (even if it's extremely long) before watching the movie. I want a really good sense of what's going on during a movie before I watch it, which is probably why I wait a few weeks after the premiere to watch a movie.

  15. I haven't read it, but I remember a scene from the movie Music from Another Room where the book was being read aloud to one of the characters. Seeing that scene made me want to read the book. And still . . . I haven't yet.

  18. I read Anna Karenina in high school but I don't remember it very well. I should reread it now as an adult. I'd probably appreciate it more. I am planning to watch the movie when it is released on DVD. I doubt it will play at a theater near me.

  20. I haven't read it but I would like to so I can watch the movie. I've always had a thing about reading the book first before watching the film adaptation.
