2010 Christian Historical Fiction Challenge

I would like to "thank" Margaret at Christian Historical Fiction for issuing this lovely challenge. Grrrr I have avoided reading challenges other than the ones with Callapidder Days because I'm terrible at them. Of course, when you put those 3 words together: Christian, Historical, and Fiction, I'm all over it!!

So, here are the rules:

  1. The goal is to read and promote Christian Historical Fiction by reading at least 24 titles. That is two per month, but anyone who wants to commit to more or less is welcome to join in on the fun. Anyone can join. You do not need a blog to participate. I have started a CHF Ning to promote discussions as well.

  2. Audio, Re-reads, eBooks, and other formats are all allowed. As long as the book can by purchased it counts.

  3. Feel free to list a proposed lists of TBR (to-be-reads) but you can also list them as you go.

  4. Duplicates from other reading challenges can also count.

  5. Challenge begins January 3rd through December 31st. Books started before count. *wink*

So, here are a few ideas of the books I'm hoping to read this coming year:

A Kiss For Cade by Lori Copeland

The Silent Governess by Julie Klassen (Bethany House)

The Country House Courtship by Linore Rose Burkard (Harvest House)

A Hopeful Heart by Kim Vogel Sawyer

Love Finds You in Bridal Veil, Oregon by Miralee Ferrell

Winter's Awakening by Shelley Shepard Gray

Somewhere to Belong by Judith Miller (Bethany House)

Serendipity by Cathy Marie Hake (I just found this at Bethany House and it made my night!)

Here Burns My Candle by Liz Curtis Higgs (Waterbrook/Multnomah)

The Raven Saint by MaryLu Tyndall

Abbie Ann by Sharlene MacLaren (Whitaker House)

Surrender the Sea by MaryLu Tyndall

A Hope Undaunted by Julie Lessman

The Bridge of Peace by Cindy Woodsmall

Mimi, thanks SO much for including A Hope Undaunted on your list. Sure wish I had cover, but they tell me it won't be ready until March. Sigh.
