2014 British Books Challenge: Link your October Reviews

September Winners:

The September prize was sponsored by Curious Fox and they are sending FIVE lucky winners a copy of The Baking Life of Amelie Day by Vanessa Curtis. I'm happy to announce that the lucky winners are:

Michelle from Fluttering Butterflies
(for her review of Say Her Name by James Dawson)

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

October Prize Pack:

A couple of months ago I got the chance to meet one of my favourite British authors Sarah Alderson to celebrate the release of her NA novel Come Back to Me which she has written under the pen name Mila Gray. The lovely people from Macmillan very kindly let me sneak an extra copy of the book so I could give it away to one of the participants of the British Books Challenge and Sarah / Mila even signed it for you!

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. Whoa, I can't believe I am first link up - that never happens!!

  2. Just saw your comment and thank you very much but I've already got a copy of Amelie Day (and read it and loved it!) so please pass it on to someone else :)

    1. Thanks for letting me know Michelle :o)
