BookPage’s motto is “discover your next great book,” and I take particular pleasure in introducing readers to lesser-known books they might never have heard of otherwise.
This week’s contest highlights three novels that were out of print until Bloomsbury reissued them thanks to bloggers and fans who believed these books were too good to be widely unavailable. We’re giving away:
Let’s Kill Uncle by Rohan O’Grady, a clever story of a little boy who conspires to murder his evil uncle. Donna Tartt calls it “a dark, whimsical, startling book, far ahead of its time.”
Mrs. Ames by E.F. Benson, an English comedy about what happens when the “undisputed queen bee of Roseborough” gets a rival.
Henrietta Sees it Through by Joyce Dennys, a big-hearted story of friendship during World War II.
To enter to win this trio of novels, leave a comment with your answer to this question:
All great readers love to recommend great books. What’s the last book YOU recommended to a friend?
By the way, aren’t those book jackets adorable? Click each jacket to see an enlarged image.
