British Books Challenge 2011!

My amazing bloggy friend Becky @ The Bookette is hosting a very cool British Books Challenge for 2011.
For more information, read Becky's post on the Challenge here.

The idea is to read British novels (both new releases or older titles!) and since I am a massive fan of British Literature and it isn't a big stretch for me to do this challenge!

Think Jane Austen, JRR Tolkien, George Orwell, William Shakespeare, Mary Shelley, the Brontë sisters, Bram Stoker, Virginia Woolf, Neil Gaiman, Terry Pratchett or J. K. Rowling! If you haven't signed up for the Challenge, go sign up now :) There are even some great prizes every month to be won!

Since I live in the UK, I will do the Home Grown challenge! 

My list (to be updated!):
1. Almost True, by Keren David (my review here)
2. Wereworld: Rise Of The Wolf, by Curtis Jobling (my review here)
3. The Hand That First Held Mine, by Maggie O'Farrell (my review here)
4. Firebrand, by Gillian Philip (my review here)
5. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me, by Sarra Manning (my review here)
6.1 Before I Die, by Jenny Downham (my review here)
6.2 You Against Me, by Jenny Downham (my review here)
8. A Most Improper Magick, by Stephanie Burgis (my review here)
9. Escape From Shadow Island (Max Cassidy #1), by Paul Adam (my review here)
