Historical Fiction Reading Challenge - January

Welcome to the 2021 edition of the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge here it's new home!

I am very excited to have so many of you signed up for the challenge already this year, and I look forward to reading your reviews throughout the year! I am sure there is going to be a lot of great historical fiction discovered and shared with fellow HF lovers this year!

If you haven't already signed up, it's not too late! The sign up post is here.

Just to recap what participants need to know. At the beginning of each month I will put up a post which will have a Mr Linky embedded into it for you to add your link.

Please remember...

  • 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, do not add your blog link, but the correct address that will guide us directly to your review). A direct link to your Goodreads review is also acceptable
  • any kind of historical fiction is accepted (fantasy, young adult, graphic novels...)
  • if you have time, have a look some of the other links that are present. You never know when you will discover new blogs or books!
I have created a group on Facebook which you can find here and don't forget to use the #histficreadingchallenge hashtag on the socials.

I hope that you all enjoy your participation in the 2021 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge.

What will be your first histfic read this year? 


  1. My first book forn the challenge is The Rose Code by Kate Quinn. Love the time period and reading about Bletchley Park.

  2. Sheesh, so I added my book review link at No. 11 (, but then I forgot to add the title of the book I reviewed -- The White Company by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Rookie mistakes, hope didn't mess it up too much!

  3. First book posted in 2021 Challenge is Hunting the Hangman.

  4. This is my first time participating in any challenge so I am hoping I can get it right! Lol. Still trying to sort out some of the things I am supposed to do. I'll figure it out I think. Thanks for having me.

  5. Ok I am a bit lost I think I joined the challenge but am a bit confused on how and where to post the books I've completed.

  6. I'm adding The Charmed Wife even though I'm not sure if it is totally historical or even if it is totally contemporary!

  7. My first book for the challenge is Hamnet by Maggie O'Farrell and it was a five star read! Great start to the year :-)

  8. Last one for January!!! That makes FOUR already!
