YA Bliss' recently announced YA Historical Fiction Challenge. She will be sponsoring giveaways for participants throughout the year as part of the Challenge.
Of course, as a historical fiction junkie, I'm going to go for the top level of the challenge: 15 YA/MG historical fiction for 2011. For this challenge, the titles don't have to have been released in 2011, but I will be reading 15 new YA historical fiction titles. I also am challenging myself to do at least six interviews with historical fiction authors whose books I have reviewed on my blog.
Some of the titles I'm really looking forward to reading and reviewing on my blog include:
Anya's War, by Andrea Alban (Feiwel and Friends)
Death Cloud: Young Sherlock Holmes, by Andrew Lane (Farrar Strauss & Giroux)
Daughter of Xanadu, by Dori Jones Yang (Delacorte)
Fallen Grace, by Mary Hooper (Bloomsbury)
In the Shadow of the Lamp by Susanne Dunlap (Bloomsbury)
Second Fiddle, by Rosanne Parry (Random House)
Johnny Swanson, by Eleanor Updale (David Fickling Books)
Timeless, by Alexandra Monir (Delacorte)
The Year We Were Famous, by Carole Estby Dagg (Clarion)
The Revenant, by Sonia Gensler (Knopf Books)
The Friendship Doll, by Kirby Larson (Delacorte)
Sylvia & Aki, by Winifred Conkling (Tricycle Press)
I'm sure I'll discover many more to add to my list as the year goes on!
