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 K:

1. Sarah (Reading the Past) - Diana Norman - King of Last Days
2. Cat (Tell me a Story) - The Heretic's Daughter by Kathleen Kent
3. Ana T (Aneca's World) - K is for Dido Kent
4. Marg (The Adventures of an Intrepid Reader) - K is for King Charles II
5. Miss Moppet - The King's Mistress by Emma Campion
6. Leya (Wandeca Reads) - K is for Knights
7. Rowenna (Hyaline Prosaic) - K is for Kingdom of Summer
8. Steph at Laughing Stars - K is for Kabul
9. Teddy (So Many Precious Books) - The Secret River by Kate Grenville
10. Carrie (Opalescent Essence) - The Known World by Edward Jones

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.

You have until May 29th to complete your mission, the next letter will be published on May 30th and it is the letter L:


  1. Shoot, I'm late! I missed J and now K too! Can I get in after the deadline? for K ...

  2. I've added you to the list Carrie!

  3. Thanks, Marg! Now I'm back on schedule and am excited to share the latest book I read, The Line. Super stuff.
