I'm a librarian based in the UK who loves books. I'm happiest when I'm either talking about them, reading them or buying them. This blog is dedicated mainly to my addiction to YA fiction but you will also find some adult and non-fiction book reviews as well.

British Book Challenge 2012

I've decided to take part in the British Books Challenge for 2012 hosted by The Overflowing Library.  You can find out more about it and sign-up to take part here


So what is the British Books Challenge?

The BBC is a reading challenge where bloggers sign up to read books by British writers throughout 2012 which was first hosted in 2011 by www.thebookette.co.uk

The books can be in print or out. Old or new titles. They can be from any genre and for any age. My blog is obviously focused on YA literature but you are welcome to read adult or children's novels if you wish.

If you sign up for the Challenge you will be aiming to read at least 12 books by British Authors (which works out to one a month). For every book you review each month you will get an entry into the draw to win a monthly prize pack. Therefore the more you read the more entries you will rack up.

I haven't finished compiling my list of books I want to read for the challenge but it will include:

1. Jasmine Skies by Sita Brahmachari

2. Pop! by Catherine Bruton

3. Shadow of the Hawk by Curtis Jobling

4. Someone Else's Life by Katie Dale

5. Hollow Pike by James Dawson

6. Mice by Gordon Reece

  1. I'm doing this challenge as well, I think it's a fun thing to do! I've been noticing more and more over the past couple of years just how few British author's I read. I'm looking forward to hopefully getting to know new authors from seeing what people are reviewing for the challenge.
