Brilliant Books By British Authors

Hey Guys!

A few weeks ago i made a post all about books that are set in London. And when I was writing it I realised that most of the books were by non-English authors. As a brit that makes me really sad. Generally speaking, English authors don’t really get as much recognition as others within the bookish community. American publishes just seem to promote their books more.  So today I want to take the opportunity to tell you all about some really, really incredible books by some really incredible authors from the UK, predominantly British ones. I’m going to focus on YA books (and books classed as ‘teen’) and if you like this post I will happily do another one middle grade and/or general adult fiction. So, let’s stop talking and get the actual post!

State Of Sorrow by Melinda Salisbury (also The Sin Eaters Daughter)

Half Bad by Sally Green (also The Smoke Thieves)

The Spinster Club by Holly Bourne

The Unexpected Life Of Jessie Jefferson by Paige Toon

His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman

The Confessions Of Georgia Nicholson by Louise Rennison

Howls Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

The Mortal Engines by Philip Reeves

The Spooks Apprentice by Joseph Delaney

Say Her Name by Juno Dawson

Eve Of Man by Tom and Giovanna Fletcher

The Kissing Booth by Beth Reekles

Floored by Eleanor Wood, Holly Bourne, Lisa Williamson, Melinda Salisbury, Non Pratt, Sara Barnard, and Tanya Byrne (A collaborative novel by 7 British authors)

And there we have it. Those are some YA books, written by UK / British authors, that are completely brilliant. What is your favourite book by a UK author? What country are you from? I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s post and I will see you all again very soon
