I think that this is going to be the toughest challenge for me to complete this year. It is within my genre, but I have to focus on the subgenres.
The Historical Tour de Genre Challenge is hosted by Bitsy Bling Books. The challenge runs the length of 2011.
The general goal of this challenge is to focus on the subgenres of historical fiction. Since this is a tour, the idea is to read at least one book from each sub-category. Of course, you'll be the envy of all if you read more and can do multiple 'laps' around the track. The following are the required categories (there are 6 of them):
Historical Mystery/Whodunnit/Gas-Lit Century/Victorian -
1.) India Black by Carol Carr - finished 2/7/11
Historical Horror -
Historical Romance or Regency -
1.) The American Heiress by Daisy Goodwin - finished 7/13/11
2.) The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons - finished 11/26/11
Historical Young Adult -
1.) The Fifth of March by Ann Rinaldi - finished 2/3/11
2.) Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse - finished 7/29/11
Historical Plantation -
Historical Thriller -
1.) The Tudor Secret by C. W. Gortner - finished 1/31/11
You can substitute up to two of these categories with any of the following (which I probably will do):
Historical GLBT -
Historical Fantasy -
1.) Queen of the Summer Stars by Persia Woolley - finished 7/11/11
Historical Western -
Historical Paranormal -
Historical True Crime -
I will update as I go.

I am no longer an Amazon Associate. I am currently working on updating my posts with links to various locations to buy books. One of the links I am including is to RJ Julia - this is my favorite local independent book store. You can shop their store online and have access to pretty much anything you are looking for. I do not have any affiliation with any of these sites - just looking to support my local indie book store.
