I stumbled upon another challenge to add to my ever growing list for 2014. Full details and sign-up can be found at host Historical Tapestry's blog.
Basic Simple Rules:
Now to contemplate, how many historical fiction books will fit into my already over-scheduled reading plan? I think I will go Medieval with my guess and shoot for 15 historical fiction books.
- Marie Antoinette series by Juliet Grey: includes three books on various stages of Marie Antoinette's life
- The Boleyn Deceit by Laura Andersen: book two in the alternate take on history, continuing the story of what if Anne Boleyn had given Henry VIII the son he wanted.
- Fever by Mary Beth Keane: a look at the life of "Typhoid Mary"
- Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo: this is historical fantasy about a young Chinese girl asked to marry the dead in a spiritual marriage
- Becoming Josephine by Heather Webb: a story about the Creole woman that become Empress Bonaparte.
- The Spymistress by Jennifer Chiaverini: a Civil War era story about Elizabeth Van Lew, a woman who risked everything to steal Confederate secrets and care for Union prisoners-of-war
