2012 Challenges: Historical Fiction

The next challenge I'm signing up for is Historical Tapestry's Historical Fiction challenge.  I am signing up for the highest level because--perhaps with the exception of mysteries--historical fiction happens to be my favorite, favorite genre.

Would you believe I signed up for this challenge last year and I think I've read 1 book in 2011 that is historical fiction. This year was a big non-fiction year.
I'll try again in 2012!

I do the same thing. I don't think I shared any of my reviews. Oops!

Welcome back to the challenge for 2012.

I was going to say something about not worrying too much about not linking up for this year, but then I would be forgiving Kailana as well, so I can't do that! *winks*
