2011 Historical Fiction Challenge

This is possible the most apt challenge for me and (hopefully) the last challenge for the new year. Hopefully, I add.
So all you have to do is read between 5-15 (whatever amount you set yourself) books what are of the historical YA fiction genre e.g. set in the past. If you would like to enter, click here

If you look over my blog, you can see the amount I read is ridiculous. Serious ridiculous.

So I plan to read 10 books. Here is my possible list:

1. I Was Jane Austen's Best Friend - Cora Harrison
2. The Queen's Lady - Eve Edwards
3. Bright Young Things - Anna Godberson
4. A Company of Swans - Eva Ibbotson
5. Masquerade - Nancy Moser
6. The Fool's Girl - Celia Rees

So. To see my review of that book, click on the title, they should all be linked up.
Here we go:
1. A Song For Summer - Eva Ibbotson
2. Bright Young Things - Anna Godberson
3. The Queen's Lady - Eve Edwards
4. Chocolate Cake With Hitler - Emma Craigie
5. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas - John Boyne
6. I was Jane Austen's Best Friend - Cora Harrison
7. Of Mice and Men - John Steinbeck
8. The Morning Gift - Eva Ibbotson
9. Annexed - Sharon Dogar
10. Girl with a Pearl Earring - Tracy Chevalier
11. The Roman Mysteries: The Man from Pomegranate Street - Caroline Lawrence

    A historical-based book I loved was "The Secret Diary of Marie Antoinette", by Carolly Erickson.
    Also, "The Other Boelyn Girl" and the "Once", "Now", "Then" is amazing
