The British Books Challenge is the only reading challenge I historically sign up for, so it should come as no surprise that I'm signing up for it this year as well! This year, Chelley from Tales of Yesterday is hosting and I'm really looking forward to all the prize packs, authors of the month etc that will be coming from her through 2017!
The aim of this particular challenge is to read at least 12 books by British authors during the year, review them and for every link added to the monthly link up pages you are in for a chance of winning prizes. It's pretty simple but fun. And, as you know, I very much enjoy supporting British authors when I cam.
Normally at this point I'd be sharing with you some of the UKYA books that will be published this year that I'm hoping to read for the challenge ... but I think I'll mostly be focusing on some of the books by British authors that I already own. So, some, but not all, of the books I'm hoping to tackle this year include:
The Dreamsnatcher by Abi Elphinstone
The Ghosts of Heaven by Marcus Sedgwick
All About Pumpkin by Natasha Farrant
The Good Immigrant edited by Nikesh Shukla
Welcome to Nowhere by Elizabeth Laird
Blade and Bone by Catherine Johnson
The Deviants by CJ Skuse
Which books by British authors are you hoping to read in 2017? Have you joined the British Books Challenge?
