British Books Challenge 2015



I actually decided that I wasn’t going to participate in any reading challenges this year. It takes the fun out of reading for me. When I came across this challenge, I knew I could manage it. The British Books Challenge hosted by Michelle over at Fluttering Butterflies aims to get people reading, reviewing and supporting more British authors.

It will help me to decrease my TBR (as the books can be old, new, any genre, in print or out of print), whilst discovering some new British authors. You only need to read & review one book per month too, do-able!


Here are some of the books I am going to be reading for this challenge (I haven’t made a full list, please see my page here for full details, as I will be updating regularly).

1. The Girl with all the Gifts – M. R. Carey
2. Stolen – Lucy Christopher
3. More than This – Patrick Ness
4. Wedding Night – Sophie Kinsella
5. Neverwhere – Neil Gaiman
6. Slated – Teri Terry
7. Fractured –
Teri Terry

Are you taking part in the British Books Challenge?

Happy Reading,

  1. I have some Patrick Ness on my challenge list too, such a fan of his!

    • I recently read A Monster Calls and loved it – now being made into a film. I am interested in reading The Chaos Walking trilogy too.

      • I got A Monster Calls yesterday and can’t wait to read it. Chaos Walking is amazing, I think there’s a film of the first one coming soon.

      • It is wonderful, the illustrations are perfect. I read Monsters of Men for an Open University course, but didn’t get to read the first two at the time – in hindsight this is madness, but to be honest I can’t really remember what happened. I am hoping to read all three eventually, from the beginning!
