Year of the Historical Challenge


Year of the Historical challenge is hosted by Lurv A La Mode. (click challenge title to sign up)

Basic Rules/Guidelines:

  • You may read any historical fiction book for this challenge: straight historical fiction set in the English Regency, or in Asia, or in Europe, or in Africa, or in Prehistoric times etc. You may read young adult, romances, historical paranormal romances (i.e. Kim Lenox’s Shadow Guard series), historical fantasy – as long as it takes place in a historical time that at least originated with a real historic time period or event (therefore YES, steampunk is an option!) and it is fiction, it is game. Please, no nonfiction, biographies, or the like.
  • Please label your reviews in a way that associates them with this challenge. I’ll be using “YotH: (Book Title)” format for my review headers AND linking the original challenge notice/sign up post in each review so that interested readers can see why/what challenge it’s associated with.
  • I will do a post every month during the last week – this is where you need to link, in the comments section, your monthly review. I will then edit into the body of the post links for everyone’s reviews.
  • There is no limit to how many reviews you can do per month, but I am only requiring one review for a total of 12 books.
My list so far:

1.  The Silent Governess--Kathleen Klassan
2.  Labyrinth--Kate Mosse
3.  Anastasia's Secret--Susanne Dunlap
4. Virgin and the Crab--Robert Parry
5. Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show--Frank Delaney
6. The Wives of Henry Oades--Johanna Moran
7. The Queen's Pawn--Christy English
8. The Other Queen--Philippa Gregory
