Historical Fiction Reading Challenge - May



We had another great month in the challenge with more than 60 reviews shared in April. Thank you to everyone who shared! I can't wait to see what you all share in May.

I will also be sharing the stats for April in the next couple of weeks. If you didn't catch them, here is a link to the stats for March.

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.

  1. This month I have brought you two novels. The Ruin and The Glass Lake. You have quite a few entries this month!

  2. Sorry, the first link to Unmasking the Thief is incorrect. The second one should be correct.

  3. I'm on a roll! Looking forward to June, where I already have one review being written, almost finished with a second HF novel, and with the next one after that on my TBR also an HF book!

  4. I haven't been good about getting reviews on the web, so some of these were read in earlier months and only just talked about this past weekend.
