HIstorical Fiction Challenge 2009

This year the Historical Fiction Challenge is being hosted by Royal Reviews.

Here are the Guidelines set by Royal Reviews:

Read 3 historical fiction books in 3 months from 1st Jan 09 - 31st March 09.
Historical fiction will be counted as anything set or written prior to World War II. This will include classic novels, time travel novels or anything you feel fits the genre.

For an extra bit of fun, you can choose to participate in one of the following themes:

The Royal Twist - Read 3 based on or inspired by 3 different royals. Emporers, Queens, Kings whatever inspires you!

The Twilight Twist - Read a selection of 3 of the classic novels that inspired the Twilight Saga. There's Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte or A Midsummer Night's Dream by Shakespeare.

I will try to go do The Royal Twist. My three books are as follows:

1. The Lady Elizabeth by Alison Weir
2. Victoria Victorious by Jean Plaidy
3. Mary, Queen of Scotland by Margaret George.

As you know from the previous post; these three books are the three that I did not read for the Historical Challenge 2008. Hopefully, I will finish the challenge this year.

Happy Reading

Thanks for the comment about I'm off to check it out. Before your comment I had decided to go with shutterfly

Best of luck with your challenges for 2009. I'm trying hard not to join any but I may cave in. I have quite a few ARCs that I need to read.

I've added you to my Sage reader so I can come back and visit.
