Challenge Wrap-Up: 2014 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

2014 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

Hosted by: Historical Tapestry
Dates: January 1 - December 31, 2014

I signed up at the second level, "Victorian Reader" (5 books).

Here's what I read (still working on reviews):
  1. Coup de GrĂ¢ce. Marguerite Yourcenar (first published 1931; set in the last years of the first World War)
  2. Midnight in Europe. Alan Furst (first published 2013; set mostly in France during 1937) 
  3. The Two Hotel Francforts. David Leavitt (first published 2013; set in Portugal in 1940) 
  4. The Mist in the Mirror. Susan Hill (first published 1992; set in England, early 20th Century)
  5. The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches (Flavia de Luce #6). Alan Bradley (first published 2014; set in England in 1951) 
I'm a little surprised I didn't read more books that would qualify for this challenge, since historical fiction is one of my favorite genres. And, as usual, I'm lagging WAY behind in my review-writing. Still, I did hit my quota mark, and definitely enjoyed the challenge. Much thanks to everyone involved in this one.

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.
