Historical Fiction Reading Challenge - January

Welcome to the 2022 edition of the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge. I am very excited to be hosting the challenge again this year,  and very pleased to have so many people have already signed up to participate.

I am looking 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.

One thing that I am planning on doing a little differently this year is that my intention is to provide various statistics as we go through the year, probably in the middle of the following month. In mid January I will put the statistics for the whole of the 2021 challenge.

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.

Let the reading begin!!
