Why I'm Interested:
I LOVED this challenge last year! I was hoping Sab would host the challenge again in 2012. Historical fiction is a genre I love, but I don't read it as often as I wish I did. There are also a bunch of Big Name historical fiction authors I've been meaning to read...but still haven't (like *cough* Mary Hooper). Hopefully 2012 will be the year!
Some books I'm considering:
Books from my Goodreads shelf. Last year historical fantasy was acceptable, so hopefully the same holds true this year. If so, then I have a whole 'nother list to pull from.
9. The Dark Unwinding by Sharon Cameron
8. Duchessina by Carolyn Meyer
7. Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard
6. The Queen's Vow by C. W. Gortner

Have you signed up for this challenge? What books are you planning on reading? Do you have any suggestions that I absolutely MUST read?
