My Reading Challenges 2010

I had to add this one hosted by Alaine at Royal Reviews. Since I am going to be reading my first Georgette Heyer novel very soon I figured I should add this one because I am pretty sure I will read more of them. I decided to go with:

– Read 3 Romance Fiction novels

My known reads so far will be Arabella and Powder and Patch both by G.H.

The Tudor book Challenge is hosted by Michelle at Benedictionary, a book worms blog. Tudor Book Challenge: From January 1st, 2010 to December 31st, 2010 The Tudor Book Challenge challenges you to read books about or inspired by the Tudor era of the English monarchy.

I choose Commoner – Your role in the kingdom is small but mighty. You are going to read at least 5 Tudor-related books. I am pretty sure I will end up reading more than that but just to be safe I picked a lower one. I plan on reading the Tudor related novels from my Arc's list and unread owned books list.

    Historical Fiction Reading Challenge is hosted by the ladies over at Royal Reviews. I chose Obsessed – Read 20 Historical Fiction novels. It is only fitting since the size of the owned unread books is over 50 novels all historical fiction.
