Historical Fiction Reading Challenge - June




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

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

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. Excited to follow you on your June Fiction journey! Its going to be fun and interesting to read

  2. Oops... I forgot to put my link to my first HF book of the month! Fixed it now with the newest one.

  3. Well I did it again. I posted a review that is not historical fiction. An alternating plot in In a Kingdom by the Sea takes place in the 1970s which some folks think is an historical era. Not to me though as I lived through it.
