YA Bliss's Ubercool Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

It's no secret that I strongly believe historical fiction rocks (see some of my previous posts on this subject: Five Reasons Why Historical Fiction Rocks, You Know You're a Historical Fiction-Writing Geek When..., History, Sexypants-Style).

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.
She offers her own Amazon and Goodreads lists as examples of where to find historical fiction reads, plus you can check out 2012 YA and MG historical debuts over at The Apocalypsies

Thanks so much for celebrating historical fiction, Sab!!!

I'm heading over to sign up for the challenge right now...

Cool idea! If I didn't have a huge stack on contemporary YA from the library waiting to be read this month, I'd sign up. Please let us know if you discover a book that winds up being one of your favorites this year.

I'll definitely rave about my favorites.
