BBC Top 100 Big Read's

Thanks to Amy from Shoutme. She told me a long time ago about this BBC book list.
So she decided to print out the list and gradually work her way through it over time.
But however, I tweaked some of the books from the list that I didn't know and replaced them with books that have appeared on the best selling lists and "BOOKTUBER'S" recommendations.
So I thought that every month I would draw one number from my trusty "BBC TOP 100 BOOKS BOX" that matches, the number of the book and I will read it for the month.
Here is my list, with my "tweaked" books.
