This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands,-- This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England. ~~William Shakespeare, Richard III

2013 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

The lovely ladies over at Historical Tapestry are again hosting the yearly Historical Fiction Reading Challenge. Please click the image on the right to be taken to their blog if you'd be interested in signing up for the new year!

I have signed up for this challenge every year for the past three years (I think!) and I love it. 2012 was rough for me and while I read more books than the level I signed up for, I was never able to get more than just a handful of reviews actually posted.

Keeping in mind that I am now a mommy of two very active boys under the age of 6, I'm setting a much more realistic goal this year! This year I am going for the "middle" goal of Renaissance Reader, which is 10 books and reviews posted during the year. I the past I have always gone for the highest level and always achieved it...until last year. I don't like not reaching a goal so I'm going to set a smaller one this year.

Hope to see some of y'all over there!
