British Books Challenge 2015


I am super late in getting around to this post, mainly as I didn't think I had many British Books for the challenge, but after looking through my shelves I have a few that I could read and also help tackle my TRB at the same time.

So what is the British Books Challenge?

The British Books Challenge is a reading challenge that will be running here on Fluttering Butterflies between 1st January to 31st December 2015 and the main focus of the challenge is reading and reviewing books by British authors.

This challenge is available for all bloggers and/or booktubers who review books on their blogs, YouTube channels or readers who review on other websites such as Goodreads.

If you sign up for the challenge you will be aiming to read at least 12 books by British authors (which works out to one a month).

For every book you review each month you will get an entry into the draw to win a monthly prize pack (assuming that you've left all appropriate links on the monthly link page!) Therefore the more you review the more chances you have at winning that month's prize(s). There may also be some kind of special prize draw for those challenge participants who have gone to the most effort over the year and reviewing 50 or more books by British authors.

As prize packs are mainly being sponsored by British publishers I'm afraid that some of the prizes will only be available for UK participants but I hope that international bloggers will still take part. I will try to host a couple of international giveaways throughout the year but this will be dependent on my own personal finances. Please be aware that you may have to provide me with your address which may sometimes be passed on to a publicist in order for your prize to be sent out.

In terms of what books would count towards the challenge - the books can be in print or out. Old or new titles. They can be from any genre and for any age range. In previous years Becky and Kirsty focused mostly on young adult books on their respective blogs, and Sarah's reviews for the challenge spanned many genres and age ranges. The primary focus on Fluttering Butterflies will be on YA and MG, however feel free to read any books by British authors and have those books count towards the challenge: children's books, middle grade, young adult, new adult, or adult fiction or non-fiction.

If you have any questions about the challenge then make sure you check out the FAQ page HERE
