Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2010

Royal Reviews is hosting the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge for 2010, so I'm thrilled to take part in this event. I love historical fiction and am always eager to see what everyone is reading. I have the following titles on my list, but the challenge allows you to add or remove as needed:

l. Here Be Dragons - Sharon Kay Penman
2. The Sunne in Splendor - Sharon Kay Penman (completed 4/6/10)
3. The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant (completed 1/5/10)
4. The Founding by Cynthia Harrod Eagles (completed 3/8/10)
5. The Loves of Charles II - Jean Plaidy
6. The Queen's Dollmaker - Christine Trent (completed)
7. Murder Most Royal - Jean Plaidy (Completed 3/19/10)
8. Mistress Shakespeare - Karen Harper (completed 3/2/10)
9. The Secret Diaries of Anne Boleyn - Robin Maxwell
10.-15. The Secret History of the Pink Carnation Series (6 books) (completed 11/11/10)
16.-18. The Heaven Tree Trilogy (The Heaven Tree, The Green Branch, & The Scarlet Seed)- Edith Pargeter completed 2/26/10)
19. & 20. TBA

I'm leaving room for any new titles that may strike my fancy throughout the year, and if I get through 12 titles, I will have reached the "addicted" level.
