2011 YA Historical Fiction Challenge

I am a sucker for YA historical fiction! mostly because the characters are fiction but most of the things in that time period actually happened. Such as important historical events, the clothes they wear, and the language they use. So I end up being entertained AND I get to learn something! Much more interesting than reading a History textbook lol. Anywho, this year it's hosted by YA Bliss. Here's what it's about:

  • All Historical Fiction books must be YA or MG
  • Books don't have to be 2011 releases.
  • Anyone can join. Please link to a public (web) place I can find you.
  • You can join at anytime. The challenge runs from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011

 The Levels:

Level 1: 5 YA HF books in 2011
Level 2: 10 YA HF books in 2011
Level 3: 15 YA HF books in 2011
Some books I will most likely be reading for this:
  1. Ingenue (Flappers #2)-Jillian Larkin
  2. The Vespertine-Saundra Mitchell
  3. Beautiful Days-Anna Godberson
  4. Forgiven-Janet Fox
  5. Cleopatra's Moon-Vicky Alvear Shecter

I'm going to go for Level 2 but I will probably go over because there are sooo many good historical novels coming out next year. To Participate go HERE


  1. Wonderful choices! Thank you for participating.. Good luck ;)

  2. Great list of books! I just finished a wonderful historical fiction called Carnal Weapon by Peter Hoffmann. It's a spy, romance novel set in the 1950s Eisenhower era where the female spy seduces an attorney to obtain trade secrets of America’s scientists and engineers.


I truly appreciate your comments!
