2013 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge: Wrap-Up

Isn't that a wonderful button?

The 2013 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge was hosted by Historical Tapestry.  I signed up at the "Victorian Reader" level (read five books), and actually read seven books that would qualify.  As usual, I haven't managed to review ALL of them (I might work on that in the next couple of days), but here's my list, with links to the reviews that I did get written:
  1. The Heat of the Sun. David Rain
  2. The Flamethrowers. Rachel Kushner 
  3. Clea. Lawrence Durrell 
  4. Is This Tomorrow. Caroline Leavitt (review to come)
  5. A Fatal Likeness. Lyn Shepherd (review to come)
  6. The Shooting Party. Isabel Colegate  
  7. The 13 Clocks. James Thurber 
I was hoping to do a little better than that - this is one of my favorite challenges, and I want to say thank you to the challenge hosts.  If there's a 2014 edition of the challenge, maybe I can give it another try.

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.
