Historical Fiction Challenge Completed!

I am pleased to announce that I have completed the Historical Fiction Challenge this year that was hosted by Historical Tapestry!

I signed up for the challenge intending to read at least 5 historical fiction novels and as of today's date I have surpassed that goal.  If I happen to read more novels that fit into this challenge I will add the titles to this post.  You should be able to click on the title below to read my review if you are interested.  Here are the books that I read for the challenge:

1. Wench by Dolen Perkins-Valdez--Completed 1/6/2011
2. Nefertiti by Michelle Moran--Completed 3/4/2011
3. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows--Completed 3/31/2011
4. Too Jewish by Patty Friedmann--Completed 6/27/11
5. Dreams of Joy by Lisa See--Completed 7/17/11
6. The Traitor's Wife by Kathleen Kent--Completed 8/19/11
7. The Soldier's Wife by Margaret Leroy--Completed 9/10/11
8. All the Flowers in Shanghai by Duncan Jepson--Completed 12/27/11

So even though I am concerned that I may not be able to finish one or two other challenges, at least this one is under my belt!  Did you happen to join this challenge or read any of the books I have listed here?  I am curious to hear how you are coming along in the challenge or what you thought of these titles.  I have to admit to you that I loved all of these books!
