If I wasn't already signed up for my limit of challenges I would so do this one. I love historical fiction!

I have to limit mine too. I'm probably being optimistic that I can manage two here, one at my Books Can Be Deadly blog, and one at The Children's and Teens' Book Connection. We'll see how it goes. Good luck!

I just signed up for the third year! I'll certainly surpass Victorian, but I don't think I'll get to Renaissance. Good luck!
