Historical Tour de Genre Challenge-2011

Charlie from Bitsy Bling Books is hosting the Historical Tour de Genre challenge in 2011 and I have decided to join. This one celebrates all the sub-genres in historical fiction (and there are a lot of them!). The object is to complete "tours" of the sub-genres. You accomplish this by reading 6 books in different historical fiction sub genres. The challenge lasts all of 2011.

I have been on the lookout for challenges that complement each other so I don't get too overwhelmed and I think this will fit in great with my Chivalrous Deeds Challenge and the 2011 Books To Be Read Challenge that Adam is hosting at Roof Beam Reader. Can't wait to get started on all of them!

Category 1: PLANTATION Book Read: The Long Song by Andrea Levy 1/15/11
Category2: HISTORICAL ROMANCE Book Read: The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig 2/14/11
Category 3: FANTASY: Book Read: The Raven Queen by Jules Watson 3/8/11
Category 4: YA: Book Read: Cleopatra Confesses by Carolyn Meyer 5/24/11
Category 5: MYSTERY: Book Read: The Dark Enquiry by Deanna Raybourn 6/17/11
Category 6: THRILLER: Book Read: The Hypnotist by M.J. Rose 12/8/11
