Susanna - Censored by GoodReads There is already a big list about YA historical fiction: http://www.goodreads.com/list/show/11... .


message 2: by Meghan (new)

Meghan Sayres Fire in the Hole, by Mary Cronk Farrell is educational and riveting, and it speaks to labor issues today.


message 3: by Susanna (last edited Feb 28, 2012 09:54AM) (new)

Susanna Susanna: Oh, I hadn't found that one. I was also trying to keep my list more "pure"-historical fiction, less of the genre-benders like historical fantasy and historical romance.

Meghan: Fire in the Hole looks like a very nice addition. Thanks for the input!


message 4: by Jack (new)

Jack Hi everyone,

I have created a new group called Goodreads All Sorts and I'd love for people to join it or just even just give it a look. It's a group that discusses anything and everything. There will be monthly group reads, movies, and music. There is a folder for everything you could think of. I'd really like if people could spread the word because I'd love for the group to be a success. Here is the link to the group:

http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/9...

Thanks very much,
Jack :-)


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Wow, spam everywhere in my inbox. I got the message above 17 times!

No, I'm not interested in your group.

Awful. I asked him politely the first three times - and he just carried on - all day. *le sigh*

Have started flagging him now.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads I'd love to know how his group is going to cover YA historical fiction, Black History Month, and "Most Anticipated Books of 2011" at the same time.

TA will go nuts once she starts tracking this spore through listopia.


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads He's still at it, too.

And there, the pubs off Grafton being open too...Makes me think he is trickster-young


message 11: by Misfit (new)

Misfit Removed: The Royal Kidnapping. Not historical fiction.
