Teddy's Best of 2011

Here are my best books of the year:

To Defy a King by Elizabeth Chadwick: To nobody's surprise here, Elizabeth Chadwick has become a favorite author of mine just within the last 2 years. For years, my colleagues here at H.T. had been telling me that I had to read her books and I finally listened. To Defy a King was published here in North America in March 2011.  Here is the link to my review. It will be posted here on H.T. soon.

Lady of the English by Elizabeth Chadwick: Honest, these are my top two books of 2011!  Here is the link to my review.  It will be posted here on H.T. soon.

Other notable historical fiction books I read this year included:

Tiger Hills by Sarita Mandanna
The Arrow Chest by Robert Parry
 The Betrayal of Maggie Blair by Elizabeth Laird
Deadly: How to Catch an Invisible Killer by Julie Chibbaro
Stranger Here Below by Joyce Hinnefeild
Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
Oregon Trail: The Road to Destiny by Frank young
