 It's that time again! Signing up for reading challenges. 

I'm starting with The Historical Fiction Reading Challenge hosted by The Intrepid Reader. The sign-up link with rules is here

Last year I went for the "Ancient History" level, 25 books, and blew right past it. I squeaked past the next level, "Prehistoric"- 50 books. So this year, I'm going out on a limb and setting 50 as my challenge. 

To wrap-up last year, a link to my 2021 challenge with links to all review is here.

I'll tally my 2022 books with links to reviews below.

  1. I'd love to read Louisville Saturday--especially since I lived there for a while in a part of town that was around during WWII. Good-bye Mr Chips is a lifelong favorite of mine. I've read a couple of others on your list--Bloomsbury Girls was really good. And a few others are on my TBR.
