Wilkie in Winter - Hosted by The Estella Society (#WilkieWinter) & The 2014 Historical Fiction Challenge

The Estella Society is hosting Wilkie in Winter! Yay! First you read a novella, The Frozen Deep, and then you read The Woman in White. I have never read the first before, but I read The Woman in White a few years ago and really liked it. I am hoping to reread it; but we will see how that goes. I made sure I still had it on my e-reader. I considered going with a paperback this time around, but the print is so little I stuck with an e-copy. Wilkie is technically out of copyright, so you can get his books for free in most cases if you go the e-book route. It should be fun!

January 1, 2014 - December 31, 2014

Here are the details:
Each month, a new post dedicated to the HF Challenge will be created. To participate, you only have to follow the rules:
  • everyone can participate, even those who don't have a blog (you can add your book title and thoughts in the comment section if you wish)
  • add the link(s) of your review(s) including your name and book title to the Mister Linky we’ll be adding to our monthly post (please, do not add your blog link, but the correct address that will guide us directly to your review)
  • any kind of historical fiction is accepted (HF fantasy, HF young adult,...)
During the following 12 months you can choose one of the different reading levels: 
20th century reader - 2 books 
Victorian reader - 5 books 
Renaissance Reader - 10 books 
Medieval - 15 books 
Ancient History - 25 books 
Prehistoric - 50+ books

My Thoughts: Well, I didn't do this challenge in 2013 because I didn't do any challenges, but since I technically blog at Historical Tapestry I decided I should maybe include it this year... My historical fiction often moves into the historical fantasy realm, so we will see how much books I get to.


  1. There are worse things you could do than not participate in any challenges! ;)

    I loved loved loved The Woman in White. Have read it three times, as a matter of fact. I hope you love it, too.

  2. Those both look like fun challenges!

  3. Stop - no more challenges! haha.. I want to do all! :)
    Hope you have fun reading Wilkie in Winter and participating in your challenges.
