My 2012 YA Historical fiction challenge post

I completed this challenge last year and really enjoyed it (since historical fiction is my favorite genre), so I am glad YA Bliss is hosting it again. You can read more about the challenge and sign up here.

Once again, I am going for level 3, which is to read at least 15 YA & MG historical fiction books. This year, I think I read around 40, maybe I'll get 50 next year! Here is my list of books read as well as a tenative list of some of the books I hope to read, I split it into books I already have a copy of, and upcoming releases I am looking forward to. It's a long list but I hope to read a lot of these. Most of these are historical fiction, but a few are historical fantasy.

1. Dragonswood by Janet Lee Carey
2. The Pirate Captain's Daughter by Eve Bunting
3. My Story: No Way Back by Valerie Wilding
4. A Temptation of Angels by Michelle Zink
5. Gilt by Katherine Longshore
6. Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
7. Making Bombs for Hitler by Marsha Forchuk Skypruch
8. Dear Canada: Torn Apart by Susan Aihoshi
