Historical Holiday Blog Hop

Amy at Passages to the Past is hosting her first Historical Holiday Blog Hop this year :) 
I'm in Dallas and completely forgot to post this yesterday :/

Because of my tardiness I'm offering two winners 1 book each (up to $15 each) shipped directly from Amazon.com.  Your selections should be historical fiction of course and preferably something published this year or to be published in early 2013.  

All you have to do to enter is comment on this post, leaving your name, blog name and email address so I can contact you if you win.  Please also tell me your favorite historical fiction from this year and the selection you'd like if you are one of the two winners :)

That's it!:) 

Don't forget, of course, to hop around the other blogs to see what they have to offer as well!!
Happy Hopping!


  1. Thanks for the giveaway!
    One of my favorite historical fiction from the past year was The Bloodletter's Daughter, and if I won, I would choose A Bride's Story (provided graphic novels are fair game)


    1. Kirsten, I added The Bloodletter's Daughter to my WishList!! Can't believe I missed that one! And, yes, graphic novels are fair game :)

  2. I LOVED the Bronze Horseman trilogy by Paullina Simons. The first books is set in Russia in the WWII. She recently release Children Of Liberty and I would love to read that one if I win!

    1. Gisele, I've added The Bronze Horseman to my WishList! Thanks for the recommendation!

  3. I don't have a blog.

    Thank you for this giveaway!
    My favorites this year are "The Aviator's Wife" and "The Spy Lover".

    I would love to read 'The Ruins of Lace' by Iris Anthony'.


    1. Thanks, Carol! I already had The Aviator's Wife on my WishList but am adding The Spy Lover based on your recommendation :)

  4. I have to admit I am new to the Historical fiction as a whole :) but I have enjoyed a few good ones. Recently I really liked Legacy of Love and The girl in the Glass. If I won, maybe I'd love to get The Rose of Winslow Street

  6. Thanks for the giveaway! I'd like to get Bloody Jack: Curse of the Blue Tattoo (the second book in the series.)


  7. Welcome to the blog hop! No need to enter me in the contest as I'd rather your other visitors get more chances to win...but my favorite historical reads this year were To Marry an English Lord (a really fun pictorial history of Edwardian and Victorian society) and The Road to Avalon (Joan Wolf). Looking forward to seeing your reviews in 2013!

  8. I'm not sure if this was released this year, but I loved Michele Moran's Madame Tussaud
