It’s time for the Back of the Book Competition! In this competition, I show you the back cover of a book each week, and you need to guess which book it is. There are prizes to be won, and the more often you participate, the more chances you have to win.
This is already week 23! Since the competition is planned to run until June 30th, that means there’s only 3 more weeks after this week! We’re nearing the end.
So, if you have wanted to enter a picture but still haven’t, now really is the time to get a move on!
About this week’s book:
This week’s book was sent in by Boof of The Book Whisperer. She’s known for her thriller and mystery reviews, but actually reads a lot of other books as well, especially contemporary fiction. Have a look, her blog is beautiful!
Boof about the book: A female detective is sent on the undercover mission of her life to persuade a group of college friends that their housemate isn’t where they thought she was.
Which book is this?
- Girl Missing by Tess Gerritsen
- Now You See Me by S J Bolton
- The Missing by Jane Casey
- The Likeness by Tana French
To enter, fill out the FORM!
Anyone can enter and you can start joining the competition at any moment. The form will be valid until the next post of the Back of the Book competition is up.
Even if you have no idea, enter anyway, as you will gain a participation point. The more participation points you have, the more entries you will get for the final prize draw.
The cover was Dirt Music by Tim Winton. It was sent in by Cindy from The Only Cin.
The book is about an Australian woman who is stuck in a loveless marriage raising the children of her husband’s dead first wife. She drinks too much and doesn’t see a way out. Until she meets the local poacher.
Of the 22 participants this week, 21 got this right !! Again, I’m amazed how many people guessed or knew this!

Note: In the current standings I have removed everyone who hasn’t played for the last 7 weeks. Their scores are saved and I’ll add them in again when they play next time.
Thanks everyone for playing!
Anyone can join in, you can join in at any time. Why not this week? You don’t need a blog. Just a name and an email address is enough (Email address is needed in case there are two people with the same name, or when someone uses their blog name one week and their real name the next).
Everyone is entered for a prize at the end of the competition, even if you only played once. But the more you play, the more entries you’ll get in the prize draw (even if you got some of the answers wrong).
Send in a book picture if you’d like (not compulsory at all).
Have you filled out the form?
