Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2021 sign up post



Welcome to the new home of the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge for 2021! I am super excited to be hosting this challenge this year. Amy has set a high standard for me to maintain over the last few years! You are welcome if you are have been participated before or if it is your first time!

The Historical Fiction Reading Challenge has been around for many years in one form or another and we used to host at Historical Tapestry, so it  feels like full circle to be hosting once again!

Reading Challenge details

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. To participate, you only have to follow the rules:

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.


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

Renaissance Reader - 10 books
Medieval - 15 books
Ancient History - 25 books
Prehistoric - 50+ books

To join the challenge you only need to make a post about it, add your link in Mr. Linky below or just leave a link to your blog if you are not yet ready to post about it yet. If you don't have a blog you can just leave a comment for this post saying that you are joining, and link to your Facebook, Goodreads or other social media page where you will be sharing your reviews.

  9. I am SOOOO in for this! I'll sign up officially when I do a legit sign-up post, but definitely count me in :) I'll probably go for broke and do Prehistoric, but we'll see.

    Also, I started a new reading challenge central blog - readyforareadingchallenge.blogspot.com. I listed this challenge on it. If you're hosting any others and know of others going on that should be on my list, let me know!

  26. Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres and yet I the genre did not make much of a showing in my reading this year, sad to say. I am really disappointed about that. Next year will be different. I look forward to taking part in the challenge this coming year.

    ReplyDelete
  27. First year for this particular challenge but I read lots of historical fiction so I hope it will be a breeze!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well, I'm going to commit to a smaller quantity -- Victorian Reader -- so that later when I exceed 10 books, I can honestly say "Exceeds Expectations". Haha. This is my first try at this challenge. Look forward to connecting with everyone. Thanks for hosting this, and Happy 2021! :-)
