2013 British Books Challenge: Link your September Reviews

August Winner:

The August prize pack was sponsored by me and the winner gets a book of their choice from the following selection:
  • Pantomime by Laura Lam
  • One Seriously Messed-Up Weekend in the Otherwise Un-Messed-Up Life of Jack Samsonite by Tom Clempson
  • Darcy Burdock by Laura Dockrill
  • On Dublin Street by Samantha Young
I'm very happy to announce that the August winner is:

Kirsty from The Overflowing Library
(for her review of Undeniable by Liz Bankes)

Congratulations Kirsty! You have 48 hours to email me with your address and your choice of book or a new winner will be chosen. I will purchase your choice of book from either Amazon or the Book Depository and will have them sent straight to your address.

September Prize Pack:

Our sponsor for the September prize pack is Macmillan and they have a fabulous selection of books for one lucky winner!
  • Saving Silence & Forget Me Never by Gina Blaxill
  • Downside Up by Hayley Long
  • Kite Spirit by Sita Brahmachari
  • Lost Worlds by Andrew Lane
One winner will be picked at random from the list of valid reviews submitted each month and will be announced in the following month's review link up post. The winner will then have 48 hours to contact me to claim their prize or a new winner will be chosen. Obviously the more reviews you enter the greater your chance of winning but it doesn't matter if you only review one book (or even skip a month or two in the challenge!) you'll still be entered for each review you do write. I'm afraid that due to postage costs this month's prize pack will be open for UK participants only, the winner will need to give me permission to pass their address to my contact at Macmillan for them to send out the prize pack.

Important Information:
  1. Please make sure you sign up for the challenge before you start linking your reviews, I will delete links from people who aren't registered. You can sign up HERE if you haven't already.
  2. When you add your link to the Mr. Linky below please make sure you link directly to your review, not just to your blog (invalid links will be deleted)
  3. Books must have been read in 2013 to count towards the challenge so those books you read in December but reviewed in January don't count!
  4. Also, please make sure that the reviews you link are for books written by British Authors - they can be born in Britain (living here or abroad) or they can be adopted British Authors (who were born elsewhere and now live here) but if they don't fit into one of those categories then they don't count. (as above invalid links will be deleted and won't get you an entry into the prize pack). Please note that Britain includes England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, I'm afraid authors from Southern Ireland don't count.
  5. If you need ideas for books by British Authors check out the FAQ page for lots of suggestions. You don't have to choose books from these lists though - they are just to give you ideas if you need help!
Link Your Reviews:

Now for the important part, make sure you link all of your reviews using the Mr. Linky form below. In the Your Name field please include your blog name, the title of the book and the author. Make sure the link takes me directly to your review or your entry won't count and will be deleted from the list.


  1. It's great to see so many British Authors being read!

    1. It's fantastic isn't it Chrissi! I'm adding so many new books to my wish list every month though LOL
