Historical Fiction Reading Challenge - February


We had a great start to the 2023 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge with more than 60 reviews already shared!

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 was doing monthly stats from the challenge, and this is something that I will continue this year. You can find the stats for the whole of 2022 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.

Let the reading begin!!

******Please add any future links to the March linky which can be found here*******
