OK I know, I made this big speech about not joining in with any challenges this year, but I have buckled. I hate to be left out of things and this challenge just seemed far too appealing.
So I have now joined up for the British Books Challenge hosted by Becky over at The Bookette.
There are two different entry categories. One for the British bloggers called Home Grown and another one for our international friends living overseas.
As you would have guessed, I am going for the Home Grown category and aim to read 12 books through the year. Though being a little bit competitive, I have my eye on winning the Crown by reading 50 books by British authors.
So I have been thinking carefully about some of the books I would like to read and I thought I would write just a small list to get me started.
So here are a few of the books I hope to read to reach this challenge.
The Fire Eaters by David Almond
The Thirteen Curses by Michelle Harrison
Blood Red Snow White by Marcus Sedgwick
The Woman In Black by Susan Hill
Mrs De Winter by Susan Hill
Breathe by Clive McNish
Angel by Clive McNish
Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
One Day by David Nicholls
The Declaration by Gemma Malley
I am sure there will be lots of others that I will want to read but this little list will do for now.
