2017 British Books Challenge

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.

  1. I think it’s a great challenge, but each one requires just a bit more organisation and time, which I really don’t have. As it happens a very high proportion of my reads are British – which makes sense as I’m also a Brit, so somehow that feels as if I’m rather cheating if I part, anyhow:). Glad you’re giving it a go, though!
