2013 British Books Challenge: Link your November Reviews

First I have to say a quick apology for posting the November linky so late, you may have noticed it's been a little quiet around here for the last week - I've had a rotten cold / flu bug and have been feeling terrible so haven't spend much time online. I'm very behind when it comes to the blog but rest assured things will be back to normal very soon :o)

October Winner:

The October prize pack was sponsored by my fabulous contact at Orion and the winner will be receiving an amazing prize pack containing the following books:
  • She is not Invisible by Marcus Sedgwick
  • Cruel Summer by James Dawson
  • Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher
  • The Soul Beach Trilogy (Soul BeachSoul Fire & Soul Storm) by Kate Harrison
  • Plus a few bonus books by non-British authors (The Coldest Girl in Coldtown by Holly BlackShadows and Haze by Paula Weston and Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo)
I'm very happy to announce that the October winner is:

Congratulations Vicky! You have 48 hours to email me with your address and your choice of book or a new winner will be chosen. By sending me your address you are agreeing that I can pass your details to my contact at Orion so that they can send out the prize pack.

November Prize Pack:

Our sponsor for the November prize pack is Curious Fox and they have a fabulous selection of books for one lucky winner!

  • Red Rock by Kate Kelly
  • Amber by Julie Sykes
  • The Soterion Mission by Stewart Ross
  • The Diamond Thief by Sharon Gosling
  • Soul Shadows by Alex Woolf
  • Diary of a Mall Girl by Luisa Plaja
  • Curious Fox are also going to include some tasty treats to nibble while you're reading in the form of Foxes biscuits and Foxes Glacier Mints!
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 Curious Fox 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. Oh, first in this month! That's very unusual for me... especially as it's the 9th already.

    1. I think it's partly because I was so late posting this month's linky but the challenge has been a bit quieter since October - it's obviously a busy time of year! Congrats on being the first of the month though :o)
