HFReadingChallenge2013-V2

This summer I decided to hop into Historical Tapestry’s 2013 Historical Fiction challenge. I pledged to read 15 books for the Medieval Level, and surpassed by goal by 7 books. Unfortunately, I fell short of making the next level, Renaissance Level, by just 3 books. However, since I didn’t start this challenge until July, I think I did pretty damn good. Next year, I plan to reach 25 books and have pledge to do so for 2014. This challenge was really fun, and forced me to read with a purpose and focus, and I had a blast! So much so, that I even read three historical books to boot. You can view the books I read in the list below.
