Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

Historical Fiction Challenge New host, similar challenge, more delightful buttons - the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge is on again. (Which all of you probably know by know, but when your TBR pile is heading for single digits there’s not much challenging you can do. And better late than never, right?) Being a little short of books about queens, and being a rare Twilight-free zone, I picked the following books to read before the end of March:

Pompeii - Robert Harris (Ancient Rome)
To Shield the Queen - Fiona Buckley (Elizabethan)
Slammerkin - Emma Donoghue (Georgian)

  1. Another one I am in too. I enjoyed the Fiona Buckley series when I read it a few years ago.
