I have found myself reading a lot more British literature lately and for the most part I have been very pleasantly surprised.
I was lucky to find this amazing challenge, hosted by Tales of Yesterday:
The goal is to read 12 books in 2017 by either of the following:
– Authors who were born in the UK, live in the UK and are published in the UK
– Authors who were born overseas but are CURRENTLY living in the UK and his/her books were/are being published in the UK first
– Authors who were born in the UK are currently living overseas but his/her books are being published in the UK first

Sadly I cannot as I am from Portugal.
I still want to participate in the challenge and am quite excited to do so.
I think I have had quite a good head start! Here are the books I read in January:
Fungoid by William Meikle
Scottish, living in Canada.
A Bitter Chill and A Deadly Thaw, both by Sarah Ward
Dreams Before the Start of Time by Anne Charnock
The Fire Child by S K Tremayne
Never Out of Sight by Louise Stone
Born in Africa, lives in England
Hope’s Peak (Harper and Lane #1) by Tony Heale
And here are the ones I have read/plan to read in February and March:
Blink by K.L. Slater
The Breakdown by B.A. Paris
Born in England, lives in France
The Girlfriend by Michelle Frances
The House by Simon Lelic
Little Girl Lost (DI Robyn Carter #1) by Carol Wyer
And that’s it for now!
