British Books Challenge 2013



I've really enjoyed taking part in the British Books Challenge for the last two years, so I'm signing up again for 2013. This year it's being hosted by Sarah at Feeling Fictional, but the basic challenge remains the same: to read and review at least 12 books by British authors. I managed 43 last year, out of the 100 books I read in the year (of which I reviewed 72 overall on the blog). Dare I go for 50 this year? My Goodreads target for 2013 is 100 books (same as 2012), so can I make half the books I read, and potentially two thirds of those I review, British? Let's see...

This is the list of books I plan to read in 2013 and review here (to be updated as time goes on):

  1. Operation Eiffel Tower by Elen Caldecott
  2. North of Nowehere by Liz Kessler
  3. Hold On by Alan Gibbons
  4. Siege by Sarah Mussi
  5. A Witch Alone by Ruth Warburton
