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.

Books Completed:

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
5. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
4. The Wicked and the Just by J. Anderson Coats
3. Ladies in Waiting by Laura L. Sullivan
2. Renegade Magic by Stephanie Burgis
1. Bourne by Lisa T. Bergren

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


It's all about friendly conversation here at Small Review :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Be sure to check back again because I do make every effort to reply to your comments here.

Because I am absolutely terrible about following through with blog awards, I can't in good conscience accept any more. Thank you very much for thinking of me though!

Spam WILL be deleted. Attacks on myself or other comments WILL be deleted.
