Historical Fiction Challenge


I was not going to do anymore challenges. I said I have enough. I still need to start reading for the decades challenge. I am reading my last book for the Royalty Rules Challenge, so I will finish this challenge.(which is a crossover for the TBR Challenge). TBR Challenge I am on track. I am participating in Eharlequin 100,000 book challenge, but 50%of the books have to be from any Harlequin line. I will also be doing book reviews for Pump Up Your Book Promotion. I said no more challenges. And then I found Historical Fiction Challenge sponsored by Anne from Reading, Writing, and Ranting. I thought about it and I was like weelll I will finish the Royalty Rules Challenge. It is not a big stretch from Royalty to Historical Fiction sooooo and I have 6 months to read 6 books maaaybeee I could do it. Well, why not as they said in the old NIKE ad just Do It. So here are my 6 choices.
  1. The Virgin's Lover by Philippa Gregory

  2. The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant

  3. A Vision of Light by Judith Merkle Riley

  4. Mary, Queen of Scotland by Margaret George

  5. The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir

  6. Victoria Victorious by Jean Plaidy

I have the right to change any of my choices.

So wish me luck, I hope I can accomplish all of my reading goals for 2008. I also hope to read 100 books this year. Between working full time and my family I CAN DO IT!!!!

You go, girl!! :-) I have to keep my hands tied behind my back to stop signing up for more challenges. I gave in to the Non-Fiction Five a couple weeks ago. I think I'm up to about 120 books I'm supposed to read this year, and I keep looking at the Novella Challenge. Ha!

You can do it!!

Jayne,
I added the book challenge to my favorite blogs.

Lezlie,
Thanks for the support. Who knew that book challenges would be so addictive. And you can reach your goal too. 120 books, I don't think I have read that many in a year in years.

Hey, you should do it, if for no other reason than to have that challenge button on your site. History IS hot, LOL!!!

I changed Galileo's Daughter by Dava Sobel to A Vision of Light by Judith Merkle Riley. I did not realize that Galileo's Daughter is a nonfiction book.
