About Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

The Historical Fiction Reading Challenge has been around for many years in one form or another. 

I believe that the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge started at a blog called Reading, Writing and Ranting since at least 2008 before it was taken over by The Royal Reviews which is when I started participating!

In 2011, I started co-hosting at Historical Tapestry until Amy from Passages to the Past took over in 2015 and has been doing a stellar job ever since.

Now, I am proud to be hosting the challenge again since 2021, and I can't wait to see all the books that  you read and share as part of the challenge.

How the challenge works

Each month, a new post dedicated to the HF Challenge will be created where you can add the links for the books you have read. 

Everyone can participate! If you don't have a blog you can post a link to your review if it's posted on Goodreads, Facebook, or Amazon, or you can add your book title and thoughts in the comment section if you wish.

To participate, you only have to follow the rules:

Add the link(s) of your review(s) including your name and book title to the Mister Linky we’ll be adding to our monthly post (please use the direct URL that will guide us directly to your review)
Any sub-genre of historical fiction is accepted (Historical Romance, Historical Mystery, Historical Fantasy, Young Adult, History/Non-Fiction, etc.)

During the following 12 months you can choose one of the different reading levels:

20th Century Reader - 2 books
Victorian Reader - 5 books
Renaissance Reader - 10 books
Medieval - 15 books
Ancient History - 25 books
Prehistoric - 50+ books

Sign up for the 2021 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge here!
