Historical Fiction Reading Challenge - August

 We had another great month in the challenge with around 65 reviews shared in July. Thank you to everyone who shared! I can't wait to see what you all share in August.

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

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. Hello from muggy and hot North Florida! I brought you a book about Mona Lisa by Natasha Solomons :-) It's quirky.

    1. I have read a couple of books by Natasha Solomons and liked them! Thanks for sharing your review.

  2. I had signed up at the Victorian level, but have now completed my 6th book for the challenge so will aim for "Renaissance Reader" with 10 books by the end of the year.

  3. A couple of the books I've added this month are dual time but have a significant part set over 50 years ago. Not sure if everyone counts these as historical fiction...

  4. Oops - I entered my name wrong & forgot to include the name of the book. It's Moral Fibre by Helena Schrader. I'll try to remember next time!

  5. This last one... is only slightly historical, but still...
