(for her review of Half Bad by Sally Green)

Congratulations Chrissi! You have 1 week to email me with your address or a new winner will be chosen. By sending me your contact information you are agreeing that I can pass it on to my contact at Orion so that they can send out your prizes.

August Prize Pack:

One of my favourite British authors is Sarah Alderson, she writes such fantastic thrillers and her characters are some of the best you'll come across. Since I'm getting the chance to meet Sarah tomorrow I thought I'd buy an extra copy of her latest YA release, Out of Control, to give away to one of the British Books Challenge participants. As long as nothing goes wrong in the next 24 hours I'll get this extra copy of Out of Control signed for the winner, obviously it won't be personalised since the winner won't be announced until the end of August but I'm sure you'll love the book just as much as I have.

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 winners will then have 1 week 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. Since I'll be sending the prize to this month's winner this giveaway is open internationally, I will use the cheapest form of postage possible to send it though so it may take a while for the book to reach you if you if the winner is international.

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 2014 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. I hope to add more books this month!

    1. Good luck Tina, I hope you're enjoying taking part in the challenge :o)
