After a big 2010 YA Reading Challenge, I told myself that I was going to do something much smaller for 2011 and concentrate more on just reading the books I own. But today I came across this and I can’t pass it up! I love all (well most) things British and love reading books by UK Authors.
I linked to it above, but you can read more about the challenge here on the hostess’ (The Bookette) blog. For international folks, there are two options – Winston Churchill (6 books) and the Royal Family (12 books). At this point, I am only committing to Winston Churchill, but after making a list of the books I own that work for the challenge, I will probably end up as part of the Royal Family!
- Trash by Andy Mulligan (1/11/11)

I am not committing to reading all of these, but here’s what I own right now:

Plus there are several books coming out in 2011 that I know I want to read, like Jessie Love NYC by Keris Stainton, so this list will grow and change. I’m sure I also own books by UK Authors that I just don’t realize are from the UK. Will be doing more research on that!
So I’ll be back in 2011 to update this post as I read the books!
