Project UKYA


Have you heard of it?
What do you mean “huh?”

UK Authors writing YA books. From the Phil Earles via Kim Kurrans and the Patrick Ness’ of this world. More of the U (you know like humour and favourite) and less of the Z. (like when you realise that most of the books you read don’t spell words the ‘English’ way.)
Check out the twitter HT #ukya on twitter, a great place if you have love your books. Don’t forget to hunt them down on Facebook as well.

Yes I know there are some fab books from some wow authors from all over the world. But there are some GREAT books from Britain. (Some are even from BRITISH publishers too, go figure.)

APRIL EXTRAVAGANZA: #readukya – UKYA Readathon!

From Thursday 17th April to Sunday 20th, there will be a UKYA readathon. The aim of this is to read lots of amazing UKYA books and have fun at the same time.
The details:
– The readathon will start from 9 AM on the 17th and finish at 11 PM on the 20th.
– During the readathon, there will be reading sprints and activities going on over on the Project UKYA Twitter and Facebook page.

– We will ONLY be reading UKYA books – that’s any book written by an author born or currently residing in the UK.
(So Mr Ness counts!)
