Historical Challenge Completed

Yesterday I completed the Historical Fiction Challenge hosted by Historical Tapestry.

I actually still have some historical crime fiction sitting in my TBR and will probably read more this year.

You'll see from my list below that my reading, all crime fiction titles has taken me to a great range of places and periods.

You reminded me that I was supposed to be doing this challenge too...I had completely forgotten! Just had a look at my records though and have read 13 historical books so far this year, though a couple were counted for other challenges. I think I've decided not to bother with challenges anymore and will just read what I want...I seem to be getting a nice mix of styles/genres naturally :)
