Many of you said you enjoyed the simplicity and flexibility of the last challenge but agreed it was probably too long. Some of you wanted a theme and others didn't. And most of you loved the Hotties of History Challenge Buttons :-)
So this is how it's going to work:
- Read 3 historical fiction books in 3 months from 1st Jan 09 - 31st March 09.
- Historical fiction will be counted as anything set or written prior to World War II. This will include classic novels, time travel novels or anything you feel fits the genre.
For an extra bit of fun, you can choose to participate in one of the following themes:
- The Royal Twist - Read 3 based on or inspired by 3 different royals. Emporers, Queens, Kings whatever inspires you!
- The Twilight Twist - Read a selection of 3 of the classic novels that inspired the Twilight Saga. There's Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte or A Midsummer Night's Dream by Shakespeare.
