YA Historical Fiction Challenge

Sabrina from YA Bliss is hosting the YA Historical Fiction challenge for 2011 and, because I’m addicted and will be reading them anyway, I thought I would sign up. I’m going to be doing the Level 3 which is 15 books in 2011, though I’ll probably go way over that. Below are the books I will start with and what era they are set in if I could find it. Also, if you love HF, stick around. During the months February-April I will be spotlighting Historical Fiction stories and authors on the blog.

  1. Wicked Girls by Stephanie Hemphill (Salem 1692)
