British Books Challenge 2015 - Link Your February reviews


Phew! I feel like I blinked and already January has come and gone!  Thank you to everyone who has signed up for this challenge and is continuing to post and link up valid reviews. I'm really grateful for all of you!

January winners: 

January's prize pack contained 5 copies of The Last Leaves Falling by Sarah Benwell and the winners of these books are as follows:







Congratulations to all 5 of you! You have one week to email me with your addresses so that I may post out your books.  Now onto this month's exciting prizes...


February Prize Pack:

February sees the publication of some fantastic titles! And wonderfully, the lovely people at HarperCollins are hosting this month's prize pack and will be sending out the books at the end of the month. This is therefore a UK/Ire only prize pack.  February's prize pack will be:



Copies of Half the World by Joe Abercombrie, The Fire Sermon by Francesca Haig and All That Glitters by Holly Smale 

One winner will be picked at random from the list of valid reviews submitted each month and will be announced in the following month's review link up post. The winner(s) will then have 1 week to contact me to claim their prize or a new winner(s) will be chosen. Obviously the more reviews you enter the greater your chance of winning but it doesn't matter if you only review one book (or even skip a month or two in the challenge!) you'll still be entered for each review you do write.


Important Information:
  • Please make sure you sign up for the challenge before you start linking your reviews, I will delete links from people who aren't registered. You can sign up HERE if you haven't already.
  • When you add your link to the Mr. Linky below please make sure you link directly to your review, not just to your blog (invalid links will be deleted)
  • Books must have been read in 2015 to count towards the challenge so those books you read in December but reviewed in January don't count!
  • Also, please make sure that the reviews you link are for books written by British Authors - they can be born in Britain (living here or abroad) or they can be adopted British Authors (who were born elsewhere and now live here) but if they don't fit into one of those categories then they don't count. (as above invalid links will be deleted and won't get you an entry into the prize pack). Please note that Britain includes England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, I'm afraid authors from Southern Ireland don't count.
  • If you need ideas for books by British Authors check out the FAQ page for lots of suggestions. You don't have to choose books from these lists though - they are just to give you ideas if you need help!


Link Your Reviews:

Now for the important part, make sure you link all of your reviews using the Mr. Linky form below. In the Your Name field please include your blog name, the title of the book and the author. Make sure the link takes me directly to your review or your entry won't count and will be deleted from the list.

For example: Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell (Fluttering Butterflies)
