  1. I made an error in linking Mademoiselle Chanel again. That was my last book from last month, not the first book from this month. Can that link be deleted? Sorry!

  2. Are there any guidelines on what is considered an historical novel for this challenge? I mean a book set in 1880 feels a whole lot more historical to me than one set in 1980 so should the 1980 book be considered historical or not? I might be overthinking this but it is confusing me.

    1. I don't know if there are guidelines, but the usual definition of a historical novel is one that is set before the time of memory of the author. So, sometimes you have to do a little research or make a guess about the author's age. If the author was born in 1985, then a book set in 1980 would be a historical novel. I've also seen people miscategorizing novels that were written a long time ago as historical when they were set in the author's present time. For example, Dickens only wrote one historical novel, A Tale of Two Cities. Just because his books were all written in the 1800's doesn't make them historical novels, but I have seen them labeled as that.

  3. I have a giveaway going on my blog for a copy of The Dream Lover by Elizabeth Berg. It is a historical fiction novel about George Sand set in 19th century France.

  5. With these entries, I've officially moved up to the Ancient History level of the challenge and am trying for 25 books now. Woots!
