So, I’m planning on signing up for my third British Books Challenge.
I can already tell you how it’s going to go:
I’ll be really enthusiastic the first few weeks, maybe even months. I’ll tag my reviews with ‘British Books Challenge’ and make sure I’ve linked them all up before the end of the month.
And then I’ll trail off until eventually I’m not doing it at all.
That’s how it’s gone for the last two years anyway, despite my best intentions. It’s not that I don’t want to read British books, or even that I’m not doing it, I just forget to link up and eventually give up altogether.
But I’m doing it again next year anyway, because I think it’s a great thing and I do enjoy it while I remember. This year it’s being hosted by Chelley Toy at Tales of Yesterday and it sounds like she’s got some fab things lines up.
I don’t really have a list of books I’d like to read next year, but a few do spring to mind that I’m looking forward to:
- The Scarecrow Queen by Melinda Salisbury
- The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James
- Wing Jones by Katherine Webber
- Chasing the Stars by Malorie Blackman
