British Book Challenge 2013

This is where I post the details of the reading challenges I'm participating in for 2013. The details of the challenges are below along with links to the related reviews as and when they go up.
This year the British Books Challenge reigns has been passed over to Sarah at Feeling Fictional

So what is the British Books Challenge?

The BBC is a reading challenge that was created by Becky from The Bookette in 2011 as a way to encourage people to read more books by British authors. The challenge was taken over by Kirsty at The Overflowing Library for 2012 and this year it's Sarah at Feeling Fictional turn.

The books can be in print or out. Old or new titles. They can be from any genre and for any age range. The aim is to read 12 books over the year - just one a month.

I hope to read  more than one a month - my aim is three a month so 36 books over the year, but I would love to beat that and make 50 books! Below will be my links to my review of British Books for 2013 that will count for the challenge! Wish me luck! :-)
