Historical Fiction Reading Challenge - January


Welcome to the 2023 edition of the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge. I am very excited to be hosting the challenge again this year, and very pleased to have so many people have already signed up to participate.

I am looking forward to reading your reviews throughout the year! I am sure there is going to be a lot of great historical fiction discovered and shared with fellow HF lovers this year!

If you haven't already signed up, it's not too late! The sign up post is here.

During 2022, I have been doing monthly stats from the challenge, and this is something that I will continue this year. I will be putting up the statistics for the whole of the 2022 challenge later in January, once we get back from out holiday. 

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.

Let the reading begin!!

***Please add any future links to the February linky***

  1. Just had to say it is a lot of fun to be reading these posts labeled January 1, 2023 when I'm over here in Texas in December with my glass of wine still waiting to ring in the New Year, lol. Fun having book friends all across the globe :) Happy New Year everyone! Looking forward to a great year of new books.

  2. Yeah, and that time on my comment is waayyy off,'s really 8:52 pm here. Not sure what time zone it has me in!

    1. Maybe it was Australian. Even though I am currently notin Australia!

  3. Looks like a fun challenge. I'm not really good with reading goals.

  4. Thanks again, Marg, and Happy 2023!

  5. Just added a link to my first book for the challenge :)

  6. For some reason I have to re-educate myself every year with this Linky thing and always get it wrong.
