British Books Challenge – update

british books challenge

The British Books Challenge is being hosted by Fluttering Butterflies.

Hey guys! I realised that while I was checking out some books via Goodreads and other blogs, I noticed that I hadn’t done an update of the British Books Challenge since I started! Now, I know that this isn’t a requirement of the challenge, but I think it is a good idea to update it so that I have an idea of what I need to read and you guys have an idea of how far along I am. I haven’t actually read one book per month written by a British author – which I guess almost defeats the point. I will still, however, have read 12 books by the end of the year and hopefully more! I am going to add some books to the original list and I am going to leave links to the reviews that I have already written and, obviously, links to the Goodreads page themselves!

Stolen Stolen: A Letter to my Captor. I have actually already read this… So to speak. I had such high expectations of this book, but it just didn’t deliver and I ended up DNFing it! Here is a link to my review with the reasons why.

you against me You Against Me by Jenny Downham. I still have to get a copy of this book and actually open it! However, this, I think, is one of those books that you really have to be in the right mood for and, till now, the mood hasn’t really taken me! Hopefully it will do soon!

hunting lila Hunting Lila by Sarah Alderson. I actually have a copy of this book sitting and waiting for me to open it. I am planning on doing that fairly soon!

hurt Hurt by Tabitha Suzuma. I fell in love with Suzuma’s writing after reading Forbidden. Again, this is a book that has to be read when in the right mood.

me and mr J Me and Mr J by Rachel McIntyre. As someone who had both a high school crush on a teacher and was in the position of having a student crushing on me when I was their teacher, I am looking forward to seeing just how close to the mark this book is!

Dangerous Girls Dangerous Girls by Abigail Haas. Even thinking about this book has my skin tingling! I adored this book, just like I did Dangerous Boys and I feel like I need another one! Even if it is in the form of Dangerous Babies… I just want another! Here is my review!

cruel summerCruel Summer by James Dawson. I should have probably guessed from his name that James Dawson a British author is. I just didn’t – I am a fail of an English person! I adored his book Say Her Name and I recently decided to add this book to both my TBR and my British Books Challenge.

a kiss in the dark A Kiss in the Dark by Cat Clarke. I have had this book on my TBR for absolutely ages now – and I only recently realised the the author is British! Win win! Time to take this book off of my leaning tower of TBR!

the two towers The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkein. So, my dad actually has the limited addition “Lord of the Rings” book, which has all three books with illustrated pictures to go along with it. He also owns each book separately – which are all looking a bit worse for wear. However, his second book went missing quite a while back (I’m assuming after some little tyke ruined it and made it unreadable), and I was forced to take his limited edition book under threat of death if I creased on page or even marked it in any sense or form. I have now had this book for absolutely ages – I think going on 2 years – because I started the second book, but never actually finished the book. I guess this is a good time to finish said book and a challenge gives me an incentive to read it sooner rather than later.

I think that is it for now! I should probably go and find some more authors to add to this list! Or, if you have any suggestions, feel free to leave them in the comments section below
