2017 Reading Challenge: The British Books Challenge 2017.

One of my biggest problems when reading is choosing what to read, so I quite like having a list or challenge to go by, as it helps me out sometimes. This coming year I've therefore decided to participate in the 2017 British Books Challenge.

I'll be honest to thinking I read widely and yet both times I've attended YALC, hosting mostly British authors, I've been surprised by how many I haven't heard of, or at the very least haven't read. This year, I'm determined to do better.

Hosted by the wonderful Chelley Toy, I'm very excited for this challenge to begin. 2017 is going to prove an exciting year for books I'm sure. Below you'll find my preliminary reading list.

1) The Scarecrow Queen by Melinda Salisbury - Review here.
2) Ink by Alice Broadway - Review here.
3) All of the Above by Juno Dawson.
4) The Spinster Club trilogy, plus And A Happy New Year by Holly Bourne.
5) Wing Jones by Katherine Webber - Review here.
6) Rockoholic by C J Skuse.
7) Lydia by Natasha Farrant.
8) Under Rose Tainted Skies by Louise Gornall.
9) The Bookshop Girl (ARC) by Sylvia Bishop - Review here.
10) The Catalyst by Helena Coggan.
