British Books Challenge 2012

I wasn't go to sign up to challenges this year, but then I realised there's no good reason why I shouldn't do this one. For one thing it requires zero effort other than going about what I normally do. I read quite a lot of British Authors anyway and the minimum target of twelve in a year should be ridiculously easy (I've read two already this year) What I'm not going to do though is set myself a target. I'm just going to see how it goes. Secondly I want to show my support of authors here and this is the perfect opportunity. So consider this post as me signing up!

So what is the British Books Challenge?
The BBC is a reading challenge where bloggers sign up to read books by British writers throughout 2012 which was first hosted in 2011 by

The books can be in print or out. Old or new titles. They can be from any genre and for any age. My blog is obviously focused on YA literature but you are welcome to read adult or children's novels if you wish.
If you sign up for the Challenge you will be aiming to read at least 12 books by British Authors (which works out to one a month).  For every book you review each month you will get an entry into the draw to win a monthly prize pack. Therefore the more you read the more entries you will rack up. 

Towards the end of the year I hope to do some kind of special prize draw for those who have gone to the most effort over the year managing to read 50 or more British Books.

So there you go...head on over to if you're interested in taking part or just want to check out some books by British authors.

Here's a few authors I hope to read this year:

 Keren David
Luisa Plaja
Milly Johnson
Louise Douglas

And these also fit with my own challenge, The Oldest Book On The Shelf Challenge 2012 (which you can find out more about here) so a double win really!
