Challenge: The Alphabet in Historical Fiction

It's time for a new letter in The Alphabet in Historical Fiction but first let's take a look at our entries for the letter L:

1. Ana T (Aneca's World)  - L is for London
2. Sarah (Reading the Past) - L is for Lavinia
3. Robin @ Lady Gwynn's Kingdom - London by Edward Rutherford
4. Steph at Laughing Stars - L is for Lucy Patch
5. Marg (The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader) - L is for Lisa See
6. Cat (Tell me a Story) - L is for Lepida Pollia
7. Carrie (Opalescent Essence) - L is for Line
8. Rowenna (Hyaline Prosaic) - L is for Lee
9. Leya (Wandeca Reads) - L is for Lady
10. Teddy (So Many Precious Books) - L is for Legree

And now it's time to remember the rules and introduce the new letter!

Each fortnight you have to write a blog post about an historical fiction book of your choice (it might even be something you already read before), but it MUST be related to the letter of the fortnight.

You have several possibilities:
- the first letter of the title
- the first letter of the author's first name or surname
- the first letter of a character's first name or surname
- the first letter of a place where an historical event took place

You just have to choose one of them and participate.

Please check our blog each 1st and 15th of the month to find out our new letter, and then link your post (not your blog) back to our page through Mr Linky (see below). Then come and check to see who else has posted and visit their blog to find out all the details of the book they were reading.

Since we are hosting a spacial event during the month of June this time you'll have until June 29th to complete your mission, the next letter will be published on June 30th and it is the letter M:


  1. I'm so excited to get to one of my favorite books with this review! Just a note - the links on the top of the homepage and the side for this contest go to older letters.

  2. HI Carrie, I will try and update the links later today.


  3. I've reviewed Colleen McCullough's superb Masters of Rome Series over at my blog. I'd also like to say that M is for Malcolm, my son, born May 26, 2010, and the reason I didn't have a post for letter L.

  4. Don't know if mine will show up twice or not...something was buggy!
