Welcome to the fourth month of the British Books Challenge
The winner of the March Prize Pack is the blogging team at We Sat Down (please email me your address by 5th March)
I am no longer offering first to review prizes. Put quite simply this is because I have received abusive emails from bloggers demanding free books (which is rich when the books they are reviewing aren't even British) and I do not have the time or energy to have to deal with such rude and selfish behaviour. I know the majority of bloggers doing the challenge are more concerned with the achievement of having read a wider variety of British Authors so I'm sure they won't be too worried about this news.
The thing that actually makes me most angry is those people who have been rude to me would have had more luck had they just been pleasant. My blogging friends are the most generous bunch I know and had they got involved in the lovely UK blogging community a bit more I'm sure one of us would have offered them to send them books at some point anyway. Anyway ....
April Prize Pack
April's Prize pack will be a lovely Young Sherlock Holmes Prize Pack donated by Macmillan
I have to confess that I've been enjoying this challenge more than any I did last year because I never feel like I have to read British books or am limited to a certain genre. Plus I've read a few books that I might have picked up so quickly if they weren't by British authors! So I'd like to say thanks Kirsty for all your effort!
Anyway, my first review is up - Jennie Dodd's The Gemini Spell (which is set in Australia but the author is English) !
Sorry, I mighn't not have reaslised when I read some books not by British authors! So I have been researchign teh authors trying to find out which ones are British!
I've just posted a link to a review for Becoming Nancy (which I won for being an early reviewer). I see that you'd reviewed it too, and I made a sure to write mine before I read yours.
It's not on my blog, but linked to my GoodReads review.
They are not good bloggers at all.
That's it for this month (April), I'm looking forward to May!
