Orangeboy- Patrice Lawrence

Orangeboy

I loved Patrice’s debut novel which centres around drugs, gangs, friendship and family. It’s well worth a read.

Indigo Donut- Patrice Lawrence

Indigo Donut

I recently read and adored this book which is another heart-warming family read. I gave this one five stars.

The Next Together- Lauren James

The Next Together (The Next Together, #1)

I didn’t expect to like this book as much as I did. Packed full of time travel which isn’t usually my thing!

Mad Girl- Bryony Gordon

Mad Girl

I enjoyed this memoir about the author’s experience with mental health!

The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time- Mark Haddon

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

I absolutely adored this book. So unique and special.

Am I Normal Yet?- Holly Bourne

Am I Normal Yet? (The Spinster Club, #1)

Another mental health story… not intentional but wonderful all the same. I love Holly Bourne’s writing.

Paper Butterflies- Lisa Heathfield

Paper Butterflies

Such an intense read!

Infinite Sky- C.J Flood

Infinite Sky (Infinite Sky, #1)

A beautiful read!

The Wolves Of Willoughby Chase- Joan Aiken

The Wolves of Willoughby Chase (The Wolves Chronicles, #1)

I only discovered this book last year! I absolutely lapped it up. A stunning piece of children’s literature.

A Boy Made Of Blocks- Keith Stuart

A Boy Made of Blocks

Oops, another book featuring a character on the autistic spectrum. This one is WONDERFUL and I can’t recommend it enough. A raw account of the main character’s struggle with his son.

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list is a Top Ten Freebie, so we get the chance to make up our own topic. In celebration of all things British, I’m going to list my Top Ten British Writers. This list constantly changes but these authors always seem to crop up at one point or another!

In no particular order:

James Dawson

Hollow Pike, Cruel Summer, Say Her Name and Under My Skin are James Dawson’s fiction books, all of which are fabulous. For an LGBT non fiction read, I highly recommend This Book is Gay.

Emma Carroll

Emma Carroll is a brilliant writer. I loved Frost Hollow Hall and The Girl Who Walked On Air.

Alison Rattle

I have given The Quietness, The Madness and The Beloved 5 stars. I have loved every YA book Alison has come out with. I highly recommend her work if you’re into historical YA!

Cat Clarke

Undone and A Kiss In The Dark are my two favourite Cat Clarke books. They both deal with serious issues in a sensitive and very readable manner.

Non Pratt

Non Pratt’s debut novel Trouble was one of my favourite books last year! I am looking forward to reading her next book, Remix soon!

Jojo Moyes

It’ll be no surprise for regular readers of my blog to see Jojo Moyes on my blog. I absolutely adore Me Before You and also enjoyed The Girl You Left Behind and The One Plus One too.

Alexia Casale

The Bone Dragon

I loved the unique The Bone Dragon by Alexia and I am very much looking forward to reading her next book, House of Windows. 

Siobhan Curham

I absolutely loved Shipwrecked (note to self… need to continue with the next book!). True Face is an inspirational non fiction book!

Dorothy Koomson

It’s hard to pick my favourite Dorothy Koomson book, but I adore My Best Friend’s Girl, The Ice Cream Girls, The Flavours of Love and The Rose Petal Beach.

Patrick Ness

I know that Patrick Ness was born in the U.S but he’s an honoury Brit! I loved The Knife of Never Letting Go (…Manchee!) and A Monsters Calls.
