Historical Fiction Reading Challenge


I think this is going to be my last reading challenge for 2010.  (Okay, well, until I find another one!!)

The Royal Reviews is hosting a Historical Fiction Reading Challenge, and like the audiobook one I just posted about, it has several levels.  For this challenge, I am going for Obsessed, which means 20 historical fiction titles this year.  Anyone want to predict what month I'll hit 20?  I'm certain it will be before December!!

So, here is my list for tracking this challenge.  What is unusual is that I actually don't have a historical fiction title going right now, though there is one waiting for me at the bookmobile today... so I'll list that as my first tentative title.

  1. The Centurion's Wife by Davis Bunn and Janette Oke
  2. The Hidden Flame by Davis Bunn and Janette Oke
  3. Hearts Awakening by Delia Parr
  4. Andrea Carter and the Trouble with Treasure by Susan Marlow
  5. Sixteen Brides by Stephanie Grace Whitson
  6. The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas (It hadn't occurred to me to categorize this book in this way, but I was reading about the historicity of the novel, and I think it fits.)

Another book challenge? I'm going to have to check this out, because I can't handle peer pressure. LOL

Oh, come on Heidi, you can do it...

It's at least partially your fault I got started on these challenges in the first place. You are such a bad influence on me... LOL!

LOL! I love reading your blog btw. I am so excited to see your reviews! I keep reading on my iphone, and almost never comment because it is such a pain in the neck to type on the iphone. I'm on hubbys computer today :). As soon as I get my computer, I am definitely going to do some reading challenges. You should check out the spring reading fling. Can't remember the url but you should be able to google it. Amy B (bowofbronze.com/blogs)

Just for the record, you will really like Artisan Bread. You can save an old gallon ice cream bucket from the generic brand, leave the lid half cocked so it can breathe, and put two recipes in it a time in the fridge. We love it. Amy B

I understand about not posting from the iPhone! I hope the new computer is coming soon though, because wow do I miss you...

And thanks for the excuse to buy a gallon of ice cream! Love it!!!

We are completely out of yeast here right now, so I haven't been reading Artisan Bread. I want to get started, and reading really makes it worse! So, I'm focusing on other stuff. Hopefully sometime next week.
