YA Historical Fiction Challenge

Historical fiction: tells a story that is set in the past. That setting is usually real and drawn from history, and often contains actual historical persons, but the principal characters tend to be fictional. Writers of stories in this genre, while penning fiction, attempt to capture the spirit, manners, and social conditions of the persons or time(s) presented in the story, with due attention paid to period detail and fidelity. (Wikipedia)

 There are three levels for this challenge:

Level 1: 5 YA HF books in 2011
Level 2: 10 YA HF books in 2011
Level 3: 15 YA HF books in 2011

For now, I'll stick with 5 YA HF books--if and when I reach that, I'll level up. ;)

Here's my list:

  1. Deadly - Julie Chibbaro
  2. In the Shadow of the Lamp - Susanne Dunlap
  3. Between Shades of Grey - Ruta Sepetys
  4. The Lost Crown: A Novel of Romanov Russia - Sarah Miller
  5. A Great and Terrible Beauty (Gemma Doyle, #1) - Libba Bray
  6. The Season - Sarah MacLean
  7. Beautiful Days (Bright Young Things, #2) - Anna Godbersen
