Completed 2013 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

I'm happy to announce I've completed the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2013 hosted by Historical Tapestry blog.

This year I signed up for the Renaissance Reader level to read 10 historical fiction books and ended up reading 14, details of each below:

1.  The Secret Keeper | Kate Morton
2.  Redemption on the River | Loren DeShon
3.  Chasing Odysseus | S.D. Gentill
4.  The Wild Girl | Kate Forsyth
5.  Alex Cross's Trial | James Patterson
6.  Prophecy | S.J. Parris
7.  Seduction | M. J. Rose
8.  A Great and Terrible Beauty | Libba Bray
9.  The Confessions of Catherine de Medici | C.W. Gortner
10. John Saturnall's Feast | Lawrence Norfolk

Additional books I read for the challenge:
11. Watermark: A Novel of the Middle Ages | Vanitha Sankaran
12. O, Juliet | Robin Maxwell
13. The Signature of All Things | Elizabeth Gilbert

I've signed up again to participate in 2014 by reading 15 historical novels this time.  You don't have to read that many though, you can read as little as 2 books; anyone want to join me?
