Historical Fiction Reading Challenge - December




Last linky for the month and I am late! My apologies.

We had another great month in the challenge with around 75 reviews shared in November. Thank you to everyone who shared! I can't wait to see what you all share in December.

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

I am going to start posting about next year's challenge already. The sign up post will be up in the next couple of days. This year I will also be putting up a wrap up post for you to add your links into. The round up for overall stats for the whole of 2022 will be up towards the end of January once we are home from Europe.

This year in addition to the monthly Linky posts, I also did the stats for each month which I thought were interesting and I think other people enjoyed them too. If anyone has anything that they would like to see added to the stats or if you have an idea for the challenge I would be happy to hear them too. You can either leave them in the comments or email me at ozdiamondlil at

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. I just linked Maureen by Rachel Joyce.

  2. Also, forgive me for adding two books from August here. How I forgot to link them is a surprise to me as I absolutely LOVED both Garmus and Shapiro books. I was writing up my challenge wrap up and noted they were missing :-(
