British Books Challenge 2017


I’m super excited to be taking part in the British Books Challenge in 2017. The lovely Chelle over at Tales of Yesterday is the 2017. Find out more here.

The idea is the read a minimum of twelve books (one per month) that fit the following criteria:

  • Authors who were born in the UK, live in the UK and are published in the UK
  • Authors who were born overseas but are CURRENTLY living in the UK and his/her books were/are being published in the UK first
  • Authors who were born in the UK are currently living overseas but his/her books are being published in the UK first

Chelle is also going to be running some features such as monthly authors and books as well as prizes to keep us motivated along the way. To be entered for the prizes, you simply have to review the books you read and link up on her blog.

I’m excited to read more from British authors. Most of my books will be YA focused as I have a lot of those sitting on the shelves but a few adult novels may sneak their way in.


Here are some of the books I’m considering reading for this challenge (these are all subject to change throughout the year!). Most of these I already own and need to read. Click the cover for the Goodreads page.

Solitaire  Am I Normal Yet? (The Spinster Club, #1)  Seed  The Square Root of Summer

Birdy  Traitor to the Throne (Rebel of the Sands #2)  A Quiet Kind of Thunder  Gilded Cage (Dark Gifts, #1)
