YA Historical Fiction Challenge - hosted by YA Bliss

The YA Historical Fiction Challenge is hosted by YA Bliss.  Please head on over and to sign up click HERE.

Historical fiction: tells a story that is set in the past. That setting is usually real and drawn from history, and often contains actual historical persons, but the principal characters tend to be fictional. Writers of stories in this genre, while penning fiction, attempt to capture the spirit, manners, and social conditions of the persons or time(s) presented in the story, with due attention paid to period detail and fidelity. (Wikipedia)

Choose your level:

Level 1: 5 books
Level 2: 10 books
Level 3: 15 books

All Historical Fiction books must be YA or MG
Books don't have to be 2012 releases.
Anyone can join. Please link to a public (web) place I can find you.
You can join at anytime. The challenge runs from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012

My challenge level will be level 2, with 10 books.  I have some books listed and will add more.
Luxe Series by Anna Godbersen
The Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink
