Challenge Wrap-Up: Historical Fiction 2015

The 2015 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge was hosted by Amy @ Passages to the Past. (Thanks so much, Amy!) I had five books as my goal ("Victorian Reader" level), and actually read eight -- although I didn't manage to get them all reviewed. A pretty successful result, I think.

Here's what I read:
  1. As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust (Flavia de Luce #7). Alan Bradley (published 2015 / set around 1950)
  2. The Witch of Painted Sorrows. M.J. Rose (published 2015 / set in 19th Century France)
  3. A Fine Summer's Day (Inspector Ian Rutledge #17). Charles Todd (published 2015 / set in 1914)
  4. The Silence of Ghosts. Jonathan Aycliffe (first published 2013 / set during World War II)
  5. The Angel Court Affair (Charlotte and Thomas Pitt #30). Anne Perry (published 2015 / set in Victorian England) 
  6. Newport. Jill Morrow (published 2015 / set in 1921) 
  7. The Quick. Lauren Owen (published 2014 / set in late 19th Century England) 
  8. A Man of Some Repute. Elizabeth Edmondson (published 2015 / set in 1953)

  1. I'm so glad that I've stumbled upon your fine blog -- via another blogger's links -- and I've enjoyed browsing through your postings. Tell me, though, which was your favorite historical novel? It is a genre that has been a favorite of mine, especially historical detective fiction. I especially like the books by Michael Gregorio (set in Kant's environment). All the best from R.T. at Beyond Eastrod.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
