2013 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

The Historical Fiction Reading Challenge is hosted by Historical Tapestry, and it goes from January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2013. I participated in this challenge last year and ended up reading 13 historical fiction books so I am going to push myself to read a few more this year.

I'm joining at the Ancient History level, which means I need to read at least 25 historical fiction books in 2013. I'll keep track of them here.
