Historical Fiction Challenge 2011




I usually find myself reading a few books throughout the year that would be considered Historical Fiction so I have decided to go ahead and sign up for this challenge for 2011.  Historical Tapestry is hosting this challenge and you should head on over to check out the rules and guidelines if you think this might interest you. 



Here are the levels of participation:

Severe Bookaholism: 20 books
Undoubtedly Obsessed: 15 books
Struggling the Addiction: 10 books
Daring & Curious: 5 books
Out of My Comfort Zone: 2 books

So I am going to sign up for the Daring and Curious level, which means I need to read 5 Historical Fiction Books between January 1 and December 31, 2011.  I think I can do it!

I will update this post as I complete books for this challenge.

1. Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez--Completed 1/6/2011

You could include "Partners" and "Homesteader" in your HF challange and get a glimpse of Canada in the late 19th. There's a link to them on my blog.
