British Books Challenge - Link Your April Reviews

So.... 2015 is now a quarter finished. How did that happen?! Again, as with previous months this year, I am super, super impressed with the level of commitment you guys have shown to this challenge. At last count there were close to 60 reviews linked during the month of March. There was lots of love for recent publications such as Half Wild by Sally Green and Under My Skin by James Dawson but I love seeing the vast range of books everyone has been reading and reviewing for this challenge! And I hope you've also been finding some good recommendations from the review link-up pages as well. As ever, good luck and keep reading and reviewing! 

Onto March's winner. March's prize pack was hosted by Scholastic and the prize is the absolutely gorgeous 20th anniversary editions of the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman. 

And that winner is...
Chrissi Reads

Congratulations Chrissi! You have one week to email me with your address so that Scholastic may post out your books.  And a huge thank you to Scholastic for hosting March's prize pack! Now onto this month's exciting prize...

April Prize Pack:

Well, this is awkward. I took my time organising this month's prize pack and it hasn't quite been confirmed. Do come back soon and this will hopefully have been resolved!

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: Under My Skin by James Dawson (Fluttering Butterflies)
