YA Bliss's YA Historical Fiction Challenge

The other challenge I'm planning to enter is:

This challenge is hosted by YA Bliss. You can sign up here and you can read more about this challenge here. To check what books are eligible for the challenge, please go here and here.

As for the books I'll be reading, this is a working list and may change later on. The following books caught my eye:
  • Envy, Anna Godbersen
  • Splendor, Anna Godbersen
  • Bright Young Things, Anna Godbersen
  • Beautiful Days, Anna Godbersen
  • A Great and Terrible Beauty, Libba Bray
  • Rebel Angels, Libba Bray
  • The Sweet Far Thing, Libba Bray
  • Vixen, Jillian Larkin
  • Ingenue, Jillian Larkin
  • The Vespertine, Saundra Mitchell
  • The Book Thief, Marcus Zuzak
  • The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, John Boyne
  • Annexed, Sharon Dogar
  • The Season, Sarah MacLean
  • Deadly, Julie Chibbaro
If I read all these books, I'd be eligible for Level 3 (15 books), but I have no idea whether I'll be able to keep up, as many things may hinder, delay or maybe speed up my reading - among them, time, money, mood, and the fact that some of these books are published in my country (John Boyne's and Marcus Zuzak's), some I'm waiting to be published here (the first two of the list), and some are not the first books in a series. I'll probably be reading in English a lot of them, though.

After all this reasoning, I choose "Level 1: 5 YA HF books in 2011", to be safe. Hopefully I'll be able to upgrade my reading level later on.

That's all, folks! I'm going to sign up now.

  1. Thanks for entering the challenge! I'll have a chance to practice my Portuguese when reading your reviews (if you review in Portuguese). My father is from Madeira, but lives in Venezuela. You have a great list there. Good luck and happy reading ;)

  2. Hey welcome to my blog! I'm not sure in which language I'll be writing my reviews, but perhaps I'll do them bilingual. =)

    Feel free to check some old reviews to practice your Portuguese, I'll gladly answer any doubts you have. ;)

    What a coincidence to meet you. Many people leave Portugal, especially Madeira and Azores, to migrate to South America, but I had never met any. The web is that small after all. ^^

    Thanks for hosting the challenge! (:
