YA Historical Fiction Challenge 2011

The Challenge

I am a huge fan of historical fiction and have already joined several challenges in that domain, so when I saw this challenge, I couldn't resist.  Hosted by Stephanie @ Books Are a Girl's Best Friend, she has also compiled a list of a variety of books that can help the newbie YA reader to find books to get started.  If interested, go take a look and sign up!!!

Levels:  You can choose any of the following levels to aim for. 1) Inquisitive- read 1-3 YA HF novel in 2011
2) Fascinated- Read 5 YA HF novels in 2011
3) Captivated- Read 10 YA HF novels in 2011
4) Head over heels in love- Read 15 YA HF novels in 2011
5) Addicted- Read 15+ YA HF novels in 2011

All books read for the challenge must be YA (or for slightly younger children.) For the purposes of this challenge, anything set in the past and centering around the historical period will count.

The challenge is open to everyone, and you do not need a blog to participate. 

It does not matter when the books were published or what time period they were set in.

The challenge starts on 1st January 2011 and ends on December 31st and you can sign up anytime.
