This reading challenge changes each month or so. And there are PRIZES! I mean, who doesn’t love free stuff, right? Random House Canada is the host of this one and the first reading challenge has to do with all things hist-fict.
Basically they have a list of historical fiction books on their website and the challenge is to read one from the list by February 29th(yay leap year!). I’m not a HUGE hist-fict reader, although I have already read one from the list and it made my best of 2011 list (The Virgin Cure). I’m not sure which book from the list I’m going to read. Here are the choices:
The Winter Palace by Eva Stachniak (Available January 3. Check out the video trailer!)
The Virgin Cure by Ami McKay
The Paris Wife by Paula McLain
Midwife of Venice by Roberta Rich
The Salt Road by Jane Johnson
Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran
Anything in the Outlander or Lord John series by Diana Gabaldon (If you haven’t met Jamie Fraser yet, are you ever in for a treat!
What say you, hist-fict fans? Which book should I read for this challenge?
