2012 Christian Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

(I'm borrowing the 2011 button until I can find the 2012 button.)

Hosted by Creative Madness Mama
My goal? To read and review 24 Christian historical fiction books (two per month)

It was really only once I began this blog that I truly fell in love with historical fiction. For the longest time, I hated had a strong dislike for the genre, but I have discovered some incredible authors and books and now I actually choose to read historical fiction.
