For 2011 Sab at YA Bliss is hosting the YA Historical Challenge. I love historical fiction, so I'm super excited for this! There are so many great ones coming out next year (though they don't have to come out next year to be part of the callenge).
Historical fiction: tells a story that is set in the past. That setting is usually real and drawn from history, and often contains actual historical persons, but the principal characters tend to be fictional. Writers of stories in this genre, while penning fiction, attempt to capture the spirit, manners, and social conditions of the persons or time(s) presented in the story, with due attention paid to period detail and fidelity.

There are three levels:
Level 1: 5 YA HF books in 2011
Level 2: 10 YA HF books in 2011
Level 3: 15 YA HF books in 2011
I'm planning to get to level 1, but hoping to get to level 2. To see the original post go here.
