Oh how I’ve missed Top Ten Tuesday! It’s back today after a mini break. Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the wonderful The Broke and The Bookish. This week’s list are the Top Ten Books for a certain person or subject. I decided to promote those British Authors I love so much. Here are a selection!

Orangeboy- Patrice Lawrence
I loved Patrice’s debut novel which centres around drugs, gangs, friendship and family. It’s well worth a read.
Indigo Donut- Patrice Lawrence
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
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
I enjoyed this memoir about the author’s experience with mental health!
The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time- Mark Haddon
I absolutely adored this book. So unique and special.
Am I Normal Yet?- Holly Bourne
Another mental health story… not intentional but wonderful all the same. I love Holly Bourne’s writing.
Paper Butterflies- Lisa Heathfield
Such an intense read!
Infinite Sky- C.J Flood
A beautiful read!
The Wolves Of Willoughby Chase- Joan Aiken
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
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:
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 is a brilliant writer. I loved Frost Hollow Hall and The Girl Who Walked On Air.
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!
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’s debut novel Trouble was one of my favourite books last year! I am looking forward to reading her next book, Remix soon!
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.
I loved the unique The Bone Dragon by Alexia and I am very much looking forward to reading her next book, House of Windows.
I absolutely loved Shipwrecked (note to self… need to continue with the next book!). True Face is an inspirational non fiction book!
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.
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.
