BBC: October Review Link Up

Well September was actually a good month for me. I read five British books even if I didn't quite manage to get all the reviews posted.

These are the book that I read:
The Thief Taker's Apprentice by Stephen Deas
Cross My Heart by Sasha Gould
Fallen Grace by Mary Hooper
My Sister Lives on the Mantelpiece by Annabel Pitcher
Midwinterblood by Marcus Sedgwick

Not bad. Not bad at all! I really enjoyed all of them but my favourite was Midwinterblood with The Thief Taker's Apprentice coming a close second.

Which British book did you read last month really enjoy? Let me know in the comments...

Anyway, I'm sure you're all keen to know the name of the winner of the September book which was The Spook's Apprentice. The winner was... Jenni of Juniper's Jungle.
Congratulations. I will send you an email.

The October prize will be a copy of Velvet by Mary Hooper.

Now let's link up those October reviews. I know this is going to be a challenging month for me because I'm reading for my WIP, the staff book group and the writing class book group. It doesn't give much time for fitting in those all important British authors.

Oh and before you do that I want to give a huge shout out to Michelle at Fluttering Butterflies who has now read her 50th British book. What a star!

If you want to know which British books are released this month, check out Karen's post over at Reading Teenage Fiction.

I haven't finished a book since I went back to work. I'm determined to do so THIS WEEKEND.

Ugh I've been so bad! I need to read more British books! The prize is pretty great this month...

I'm so bad, I keep forgetting to link my reviews and I keep forgetting which authors are British! I will be better this month!

Oh how exciting!

Watching the English was great for an American reader looking at all things English as an outsider. That's book 5 of the 6 that I signed up for in my challenge!

Sorry - hit enter too quickly so I have a half-entered link there. I added the correct link right below it.

I read The Very Thought of You by Rosie Alison but realized I did not link up.

Don't know why but seem to be getting through very few books at the moment! Life and socialising conspiring against me! Anyway, finally posted another BBC book! Yay.
Lynn :D

I've been merrily reviewing and forgetting to link them up. Clearly, I expected your British Book review radar to be working and to find them! Sorry. Have added the October ones (but I did miss a couple in Sept; how stupid of me!)

Hi Becky, Please don;t enter me for the giveaway this month as I've already read and reviewed Velvet. Thanks!

Hi Becky, I'm not 100% sure if the Haunted anthology counts towards this challenge or not. It's got stories from 11 different authors in there & most of them are British but there are a couple of international ones in there. Feel free to remove the link if you don't think it should be included :o)
