Complete: The Typically British Challenge

If you look back on the comments in my sign up post, Lauren from I Was A Teenage Book Geek predicted that I would finish The Typically British Challenge by April and she was CORRECT. Lauren, I think I am either very predictable or you are a secret psychic...

These are the eight Typically British Books that I read:
  1. When I Was Joe by Keren David - review here
  2. The Crowfield Curse by Pat Walsh - review here
  3. Bad Faith by Gillian Philip - review here
  4. Mission Telemark by Amanda Mitchison - review here
  5. Solace of the Road by Siobhan Dowd- review here
  6. Crossing the Line by Gillian Philip- review here
  7. Song Quest by Katherine Roberts - review here
  8. Numbers by Rachel Ward - review here
I enjoyed every one of these novels. Keren David and Gillian Philip are now firmly entrenched on my favourite authors list. They are both amazingly talented. I think you'll find I read more than eight British Books in 2010 and I officially earned the title CREAM CRACKERED! 

Thank you to Book Chick City for hosting such an awesome challenge!

Congratulations you :)
My "UK author" label on the blog has 30 articles so even if a few are author events, I think it is fair to say I read 8 LOL
Ok, next year I sign up ;)

Way to go, Becky! I have no recollection of making that prediction, but I still feel a little smug about it nonetheless. :D

Go British authors!
