Historical Fiction Challenge

Late as I am, I still want to join this challenge, hosted by HobbyBuku. The idea is to read as many Historical Fiction as you can from August to December. So, here it goes:

Total = 1443 pages (Historian)

Cultural and political situation in Medieval England under the reign of Richard I.
Same as Ivanhoe, but stressed more to the life of legendary thief Robin Hood.
No doubt historical.
Total = 1291 pages (Historian)

Hugo– Les Miserables: Marius (281 pages)
Homer - Odyssey (560 pages)
Total = 1152 (Historian)


Hill, David Wesley - At Drake's Command (424 pages)
Dumas – Vicomte de Bragelonne (768 pages)
The 3rd book of D'Artagnan Romances.

I still leave a lot in blank, because I still don't know what I'm going to read in the months to come. And also, being capricious, my mood often changes and I cannot predict whether I would feel to read or not to read certain classics.

PS: When I don't own these books in printed copy I take the data of their pages from Goodreads.  


  1. Ah yes, Les Miserables is definitely the perfect book for Historian :D Oh and you have decided to read Vicomte de Bragelonne? I'll wait for your review. I don't think I'm gonna like it because I don't like Raoul's character, he's too tender for a man, and I don't think that our four musketeers would play a big role in Vicomte and La Valliere.

  2. Awesome list :D thanks for joining Listra, can't wait to see your reviews.
