I wish everyone a Happy and Healthy New Year!
Well, it is that time of the year again - time to sign up for reading challenges. There doesn't seem to be as many challenges as there have been in the past, but luckily for me, I had already decided which I wanted to participate in. This year, I am returning to three old favorites and two new challenges.
The War through the Generations 2013 American Revolution Reading Challenge sounds very interesting. My goal is to read 4-10 books in any genre with the American Revolution as a primary or secondary theme. I even have some books picked out about the American Revolution.
And I will be returning to the 2013 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge hosted each year by Historical Tapestry. And since the Medieval period was always a secondary interest of mine, I thought I would go for the Medieval level of 15 books. I know, almost everything I read for The Children's War is historical fiction, but not everything I post qualifies.
The third reading challenge I am returning to is Rose City Reader's European Reading Challenge. I am going for the Five Star (Deluxe Entourage) level of reading at least five books by different European authors or books set in different European countries.
The two new Reading Challenges I have decided on are:
The 2013 Cruisin' thru the Cozies hosted by Socrates' Book Reviews. I am going for level 1, Snoop, and reading at least 6 books. There are still a few mystery books I want to read that take place in WW2 and that would have lots of appeal to YA or N/A (New Adult) readers.
And last, but not least, I am participating in 2013 Pre-1960 Classic Children's Books Reading Challenge. This is a good challenge for me since I have not been very good about my From the Archives book reviews.
I am looking forward to a very interesting reading year in 2013.
