YA Historical Fiction Challenge


It’s no secret we here at yaReads love historical fiction, so when we stumbled upon this challenge the other day, hosted by Sab @ YA Bliss, we thought we’d get on board.

Historical fiction: tells a story that is set in the past. That setting is usually real and drawn from history, and often contains actual historical persons, but the principal characters tend to be fictional. Writers of stories in this genre, while penning fiction, attempt to capture the spirit, manners, and social conditions of the persons or time(s) presented in the story, with due attention paid to period detail and fidelity.

There are three levels to choose from for this challenge –

* Level 1: 5 YA HF books in 2011

* Level 2: 10 YA HF books in 2011

* Level 3: 15 YA HF books in 2011

I’m going to aim for Level 2, but only have a tentative list of books for now –

1 – Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen
2 – Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
3- Anastasia’s Secret by Susanne Dunlap
4 – Wrapped by Jennifer Bradbury
5- The Other Countess by Eve Edwards

Any recommendations to add to the list? Leave a comment to let me know 🙂
