YA Historical Fiction Challenge 2011

Since today's a snow day (without the actual snow, just 'icy road conditions') in NC, I've declared today Official 2011 Challenge-Entering Day.  I'm going to post about all the awesome 2011 reading challenges I've signed up for so far, hopefully join a few more, and I will be adding a 'Challenges' page to the blog to help organize things.  If you know or are hosting an awesome YA challenge in 2011, just drop me a comment so I can come check it out. So far it looks like next year is going to be one busy year for reading and marking off challenge lists. ;)

YA Historical Fiction Challenge hosted by Sab at YA Bliss 
Choose your level:

Level 1: 5 YA HF books in 2011
Level 2: 10 YA HF books in 2011
Level 3: 15 YA HF books in 2011
  • All Historical Fiction books must be YA or MG
  • Books don't have to be 2011 releases.
  • Anyone can join. Please link to a public (web) place I can find you.
  • You can join at anytime. The challenge runs from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011 
I'm going for Level 3-- may as well shoot for the moon, right? *gags on overused cliche*  I love historical fiction, but have been neglecting it lately due to my dystopia craze.  Sab has links to several lists of YA HF on her challenge post, and I've compiled a list of books I hope to read for the challenge. *Drumroll*...
