British Books Challenge 2012: Recommendations
So in no particular order (because I love them all) here are some of my favourite British Authors
Stolen by Lucy Christopher.
I read this before I started blogging and loved it. The whole concept was totally unique and I loved getting under the skin of the main characters.
The Declaration by Gemma Malley
Another one I read before blogging and loved it entirely. Yes I will admit a lot of my intial love for this book came from falling in love with the cover but the stuff inside is just as good
Before I die by Jenny Downham
This is one of the very few books that has made me cry because it's beautiful. I was also epically excited as it has scenes set in Cromer which the geeky part of me loved!
Long Lankin by Lindsay Barraclough
This is one creepy book written by one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met. Loved every page.
0.4 by Mike Lancaster
I'm not a huge Sci Fi fan but I loved this. Really creepy and highly unnerving.
The truth about Celia Frost by Paula Rawsthorne
Another author that I met and who was lovely. I loved this books because it was really pacey and had loads of fantastic twists.
VIII by Harriet Castor
I loved this book because it is the type of historical fiction book I have wanted someone to write all my life (even though I didn't know it until I read it)
Someone else's life by Katie Dale
A new one for me. This is out in 2012 by a debut author. I got it and read it within the space of a few hours because it was awesome.
I also could have added the epicness which is Harry Potter, His Dark Materials and the Noughts and Crosses series to this list but I'm assuming that I'd be going some to find someone who hadn't read or at least knew how awesome they all were.
