I love YA fiction and historical fiction so when I found out that YA Bliss is hosting a YA Historical Reading Challenge, I knew I had to sign up!

The YA Historical Fiction Reading Challenge runs from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2011. 

The rules:

All books must be YA or MG

Anyone can participate
You can join at any time

There are three levels to the challenge:

Level one-read 5 YA historical fiction books

Level three-read 15 YA historical fiction books

I am going to aim for level three. Here are some of the books I plan to read:

Wildwing by Emily Whitman
Wrapped by Jennifer Bradbury
In the Shadow of the Lamp by Susanne Dunlap
