New Giveaway - Sister (Rosamund Lupton)

I've just finished reading my own copy of Sister by Rosamund Lupton after it was recommended to me by a work colleague. Though I didn't fall in love with the book, I did find the device used by the author to move the story along quite interesting. So, when a copy came into stock recently I thought why not give it away and see what everyone else thinks about it!!

Sister is written as a long letter from one sister to another, the latter having been recently found suspiciously dead in a dirty building block on the edge of a park. I'm not giving anything away here. It's plainly written on the back of the book and as the reader we know pretty early on that one sister is no longer with us. The police believe that it was suicide, but the victim's sister believes otherwise and sets out on her own to uncover the mystery of her death. The book includes notes and questions for reading groups at the rear.

To enter our book giveaway just leave a comment on our blog. Make sure to tell us your favourite novel written in letter format. My favourite is probably We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver. I'll also give an honourable mention to the classic 84 Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff which doesn't really fit the criteria as it's a true story. Bonus entries can be earned for this giveaway. Just read the following for more information.
