A huge thank you to Chicken House for sponsoring the first month of the challenge and being so generous with the books for the prize pack.

Below is the link widget. Please make sure that your link goes directly to your review and not to your main homepage. Thanks! (This is not the post to use to sign up for the challenge. If you want to do that, please go HERE).

Good luck BBCers and thanks for signing up to support British books.

Brilliant prize pack- Chicken House are very generous! I've had The Keeper's Daughter out from my school library for ages but I haven't got round to reading it yet. I'm looking forward to starting the challenge :)

Irena @ This Miss Loves to Read said...

Yay, the challenge begins today!

Wow, Chicken House prepared a great prize pack! They are very nice, indeed.

Pisinat said...

Yay! I'm excited to start :)
Fabulous pack !

Clover said...

Wow, those are some brilliant prizes, how fantastic of Chicken House :) Have added both my links so far!

Cliona said...

Ooh great prizes, that was so generous of Chicken House to donate those prizes. I have a question though. If you do more than one review for the challenge, do I link up those as well or do I just link one? Thanks.

Becky said...

Thanks to all the people who have already started linking up reviews. Entangled is proving a popular choice so that is wonderful.

Cliona, in answer to your question you link up all your January reviews for British books. Thus the more you write, then better your chance of winning the prize pack.

Best of luck everyone!

Cliona said...

Thanks Becky, that's great!

Caroline said...

Hee hee two books out of 12 already, I'm on a roll! (wait for next week, I have a bunch coming as weel ;-p)

Thanks again for the challenge, i looove it!! :)

Beth Kemp said...

Oooh, the prize pack is very exciting. My daughter (7) is laughing at my excited reaction to this post! First review of the year coming up ...

Nikki-ann said...

I'm loving this challenge so far and I'm only 1 book in! :D

Great prize pack!

Clover said...

Hurrah, three down already with one more coming up this month... I'm loving this challenge so far. Thanks Becky!

First review done, Jasper Fforde's The Last Dragonslayer. I find the reading much easier than the reviewing!

Joy said...

I started with Doctor Dolittle.

Irena @ This Miss Loves to Read said...

I linked up my first review, woohoo!

Bookworm1858 said...

My link for no 50 is supposed to read The Mysterious Mr. Quin-had a bit of a problem typing obviously

BookZone said...

That's three from me. Sorry they are all in one go but time has been tight recently.

Beth Kemp said...

Sorry my link just says "Beth" - I must remember to write something in the box!

I've put my second BBC review up now, adding to the chorus of voices singing Firebrand's praises.

Lucy Coats said...

I'm late to the party, as usual! But my BBC review is now up on Scribble City Central, together with Curtis Jobling's answer to my Burning Question (I've done this as a little 'added extra'). Next one will be beginning of Feb--a bit of Marcus Sedgwick never goes amiss! :-)

Lauren said...

This is fun! I never realised how many British authors I actually read and review.

Fab looking prize pack, too. :)

Nikki-ann said...

My 2nd review for the challenge is now up. I'm definitely enjoying this challenge! :)

Clover said...

Woohoo. Managed to sneak one last review in before the month is finished :) Fab challenge Becky.
