2022 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge Wrap Up


And just like that, we are at the end of the 2022 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge.

Whilst there is still another couple of weeks to add your December links (the linky post for December is here), now there is an opportunity for you to add your wrap up post links if you have done one. You don't have to, although it is alway interesting to see what people have read throughout the challenge.

I expect that I might read at least one more historical fiction book, but in the meantime, I thought I would share my reads for the year. Please bear in mind that I am a terrible book blogger and don't review anything near all the books I have read. Here, though, are the historical fiction books I read this year, including links where there is a review. I will try to do better next year!

My list

The Girl from Paris by Ella Carey (review)

Still Life by Sarah Winman

The Postcard from Italy by Angela Petch (review)

The Codebreakers by Alli Sinclair

The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles

The Sweetheart Locket by Jen Gilroy (review)

The Lost Sister of Fifth Avenue by Ella Carey (review)

Hamnet by Maggie O'Farrell

The Things We Can't Say by Kelly Rimmer

The Language of Food by Annabel Abbs (review)

The Last Summer by Karen Swan

Lilac Skies by Shivana Bansal (review)

Far Across the Ocean by Suzie Hull (review)

Share your wrap up post below:

I will be back in late January with the statistics for the 2022 challenge.

Also, the sign up post for the 2023 edition of the challenge is up. I look forward to having you join us again next year.


  1. Very interesting book list! I think Amor Towles is a fantastic historical fiction author!

  2. I've still got the very first Amor Towles book awaiting me on my Kindle. I'm sure I'll enjoy it, but need a push to start reading it :-/
