Finished! ...the Typically British Reading Challenge, That Is!

A few months ago, I signed up for the "Cream Crackered" level of the Typically British Reading Challenge hosted by Book Chick City. This meant that I agreed to read 8 British books this year. Since I tend to be a bit of an Anglophile, this didn't prove to be difficult, as you can see by the eight books listed below. Each is linked to my review.

  1. Murder at Shots Hall by Maureen Sarsfield
  2. The Devil's Staircase by Helen FitzGerald
  3. Company of Liars by Karen Maitland
  4. Weeping on Wednesday by Ann Purser
  5. The Mapping of Love and Death by Jacqueline Winspear
  6. Castles in the Air by Judy Corbett
  7. Lying Dead by Aline Templeton
  8. Blacklands by Belinda Bauer

This now has the dubious honor of being the first reading challenge I've signed up for and completed. I think this calls for a cup of Darjeeling, don't you?


  1. I've just poured an Earl Grey so that'll have to suffice :) congratulations

  2. Congrats on completing the challenge!! :)

  3. Wow, you're doing so well. Have a biscuit with that cuppa!

  4. Bernadette-- Thanks! (And I'm glad you're the one drinking the Earl Grey!)

    Kerrie-- Thanks!

    Kathy-- Thanks!

    BCC-- Thank you!

    Kaye-- I had two... but don't tell anyone!

    Barbara-- Perfect for this challenge, eh?

    Jose-- Thank you!

  5. WOW -- that is awesome!

    I signed up for this one with great expectations, but so far I have only completed one book :(

  6. Molly-- You have plenty of time left. I have to admit that, since I'd never signed up for reading challenges before, I chose a couple that weren't really challenges. I tend to be too competitive sometimes.

  7. Congrats on finishing your first challenge!


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
