What is Simply...Challenging?

In brief, Simply...Challenging is my challenge blog. Here, I'm only listing the reading (and 1 writing) challenges I am/have taken part in, as well as book lists for each. My reviews are posted at Goodreads. Yes, it seems weird, but right now, it works for me. ;)

Historical Fiction Challenge

1 January 2011 - 31 December 2011
The ladies of Historical Tapestry are the new hosts of the Historical Fiction Challenge, now into it's fourth year.

The goal, of course, is to read fiction set in the past.  It can be any kind of historical fiction, such as ya, fantasy, etc., but it has to be historical fiction.

There are 5 levels to choose from:
1.  Out of My Comfort Zone - 2 books
2.  Daring & Curious - 5 books
3.  Struggling the Addiction - 10 books
4.  Undoubtedly Obsessed - 15 books
5.  Severe Bookaholism - 20 books

I'm setting the bar low for this one - I'm going to go with the Out of My Comfort Zone level of 2 HF books.  I just don't read enough of this type...

Titles will be stroked out as they are read (or replaced as needed).
1.  Girl in Hyacinth Blue by Susan Vreeland
2.  Case of the Cryptic Crinoline by Nancy Springer
