Back of the Book Competition – Week 9

Back of Book CompetitionIt’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.

I need new pictures! You will be featured on my blog and you will get a win for the week that your cover is placed. See full information here. *** Seriously, I’m now out of pictures!! ***

Today’s featured blog is from Rachel at And The Plot Thickens. She reviews mainly contemporary fiction and mystery, but she also does a regular feature called ‘Bibliobanter’ where she talks non-review book stuff. She writes for Suite 101 and lives in Australia.

About this week’s book: “Lots of suspense in this book about a small town where strange things are happening.”



Which book is this?

  • The Slap by Christos Tsiolkas
  • The Collector by John Fowles
  • Paradise of the Blind by Duong Thu Huong
  • Under the Dome by Stephen King

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.

This Week

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 Kates, 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?

    It is fun but it is getting harder and harder each week…..

    • Leeswammes says:

      Oh, I hope it’s not off-puttingly hard, Suzanne! I’ll try and make next week’s a little bit easier -I’ll make sure there is some information on the back cover that is of use! 🙂

    I made my guess!


    • Leeswammes says:

      OK, Shelleyrae, I can only hope you got it right… there are quite a few people that chose the wrong answer. Maybe next week it should be a bit easier again….
