2012 Tudor Reading Challenge

Challenge complete! See what I read at the bottom of the post.

2012 Tudor Reading Challenge Hosted by The Musings of ALMYBNENR

The 2012 Tudor Reading Challenge is hosted by The Musings of ALMYBNENR.

*Click the above links or the image to sign up

Details/Rules (from Amber):
The challenge runs from 1 January 2012 to 31 December 2012.

All book formats are allowed for this challenge as long as they have an ISBN number or the equivalent. Both fiction and non-fiction are allowed as well. Re-reads ARE allowed but your review must be a new one.

All the books read for this challenge must be Tudor related. Books that feature any Tudor from Henry VII to Elizabeth I and any spouses, lovers, close family members, or themes count. There are a lot out there, so no worries!

Each month, I will create a new post dedicated to the challenge where you can link your Tudor reviews for that particular month. You do not need a blog to participate! Posting on Goodreads or wherever you post your reviews is fine.

There is no need to list the books you will read for this challenge in advance. Feel free to list them as you go. Join the challenge at any time before 31 December 2012. Crossovers from other reading challenges do count.

Now, for the levels!
Henry VII (Creator of a dynasty): 5 books
Henry VIII (Larger than life): 10 books
Mary I (The first queen of England): 15 books
Elizabeth I (Gloriana & the Golden Age): 20 books

Of course, I couldn't resist this challenge! So one more for the docket.  I'm signing up for the Henry VII (5 books) level, to be safe since I've already signed up for so many others!

2.  At the Mercy of the Queen by Anne Clinard Barnhill (completed March)
3.  The Sumerton Women by D. L. Bogday (completed May)
