Around the UK in 144 Books – The Mega Map

  • Submitted: 23rd January 2017

The #AroundtheUKin144books is well underway. Each week we’ll be popping back here to map out the latest novels on the map and see those pins multiply!

The Challenge is a good one – just read a book set in any one of the UK’s numerous counties and we’ll pop it on the map. This is going to take some mapping as you might imagine so weekly updates will be made to the map below or less if it’s possible.

There have been some miles recorded so far! Highlights include these  stops:


Bridgend – The Black Path by Paul Burston

Bristol – How to Get a (Love) Life by Rosie Blake

Cambridgeshire – Watch Her Disappear by Eva Dolan

City of Edinburgh – Perfect Remains by Helen Fields

Cornwall – A Cottage in Cornwall by Laura Briggs
Devon – The Cosy Coffee Shop of Promises by Kellie Hailes

Dorset – The Winter Folly by Lulu Taylor

East Sussex – The Lavender House by Hilary Boyd

GL: Greater London – Tattletale by Sarah J Naughton | Lies by TM Logan | The Sweet Revenge by Jane Fallon

Greater Manchester – Strangers by Paul Finch

Hampshire – The Good Girlfriend’s Guide to Getting Even by Anna Bell

Highlands – Mary’s The Name by Ross Sayers

Northumberland – Holy Island by LJ Ross

Oxfordshire – Meet Me At Willoughby Close by Kate Hewitt

Staffordshire – Don’t Look Behind You by Mel Sherratt

West Sussex – Sister, Sister by Sue Fortin



The three travelling museketeers:

Jenne from  https://jenmedsbookreviews.com/
Abbie from- www.bloominbrilliantbooks.com
Rachel from https://rachelsrandomreads.blogspot.co.uk/

With each book their reviews are colour coded so you  know who has reviewed each book – and travelled to each county. Booktrails follow with each individual book mapped out so you can not only visit that county and town but see the book on location!

Check back regularly when the girls will park up, stretch their legs and get the map out for the next leg of the tour!
