The Bookette (the first challenge she has hosted). I think it's a wonderful idea and will hopefully give lots of support to British authors.As a British blogger, I was delighted to find and sign up for The British Books Challenge 2011 that is being hosted by Becky at
Any books written by British authors whether they are old or new and in print or out count for the challenge, any genre and aimed at any age group count for the challenge.
I am taking part in the Home Grown category for the challenge, which is for British Bloggers. The aim is to read 12 novels for the challenge, which I hope I will be able to reach.
There is also a category called International Friend for bloggers living overseas who want to support British authors.
To find out more information about Becky's challenge, go to the sign up post HERE!
At the moment this is very sketchy and will change a lot but here are a few British books I hope to read for the challenge:
Witch Child by Celia Rees
Mary Hooper’s new book (title to be confirmed)
Books from Chalet School series by Elinor M.Brent
Alice in Love and War by Ann Turnball
The Queen’s Lady by Eve Edwards
Marie Louise Jensen- Sigrun’s Secret
The Pale Assassin by Patricia Elliot
The Traitor’s Smile by Patricia Elliot
Georgette Heyer novels novels
Becky has also planned some amazing prize pack giveaways for each month of the year, sponsored generously by different UK publishers, which is very exciting.
I invite you to join with me in this challenge and head over to The Bookette!
