British Books Challenge, which is being hosted by Becky a.k.a. The Bookette. Because let's face it, if I can't find time to fly the flag for British authors, I pretty much fail as a British blogger.
HOWEVER, this is by no means just a challenge for the Brits in our little community of blog. Becky has divided the challenge into two categories, Home Grown (for Brits like me) and International Friend, which is for anyone else who wants to support British authors and join in the fun. You can read old or new titles, from any genre, and even read outside of the YA category if you wish. And, Becky has mentioned that there will be awesome prize packs up for grabs in giveaways open exclusively challenge participants. Interested? You can find out more about the challenge here.
The Home Grown challenge is to read and review twelve books by British authors in 2011. I'm not sure yet of all twelve books I'll be reading, but I'm currently most excited about these upcoming titles:
Kiss, Date, Love, Hate - Luisa Plaja
Rockaholic - C.J. Skuse
A Year Without Autumn - Liz Kessler
Pride and Premiership - Michelle Gayle
0.4 - Mike Lancaster
The Iron Witch - Karen Mahoney
Shadows On The Moon - Zoe Marriott
2011? Bring. It. On.
