Historical Fiction Challenge 2011 Wrap-up

27 Dec

This challenge was hosted by Historical Tapestry.

For this challenge I signed up at the Daring & Curious level. This meant I had to read 5 books in the genre to complete the challenge successfully. I’m really glad to announce that I read double the number I signed up for. Here is my list. Follow the links to read my reviews.

I have not been too good at keeping track of these and have not update the monthly posts Linky at the host blog in many months now. Will try and get that done over the next few weeks.

I’ve almost decided to sign up for this challenge again. I’ll probably stick to the same level as this year, just so that I have some chance of completing this challenge.
