Thankfully, I'm by no means the only person who shares this opinion about the genre. The amazing Sab H. over at YA Bliss runs an annual Historical Fiction Reading Challenge, and she's just posted info about the 2012 challenge:
Her rules are simple:
- All historical fiction books must be YA or MG.
- Books don't have to be 2012 releases.
- Anyone can join.
- You can join at anytime. The challenge runs from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012.
Thanks so much for celebrating historical fiction, Sab!!!
I'm heading over to sign up for the challenge right now...
