Sunday Salon: Historical Fiction Reading Challenge - August statistics


Each month I share the statistics for the previous month for the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge. I always find it interesting to see what are the books that people are reading and reviewing! This month I have visited all the reviews (or at least I think I have). As a result I think I added at least three books to my TBR!


In terms of the books, it was a good month for reviews with 58 reviews linked up for the challenge, shared by 19 participants, which is a bit less than this time last year.  There were 56 individual titles reviewed, written by 52 different authors. There were 4 reviewers who reviewed 5 or more books each this month. Thank you to everyone who shared their links whether it be 7 or just 1. 

Let's move onto the books. There were 2 books that were reviewed twice during August. They were:

Death Comes at the End by Agatha Christie was reviewed by both Helen at She Reads Novels and by Laura at Laura's Reviews. I had no idea Christie had written a mystery set in Ancient Egypt.

The Orchid Hour by Nancy Bilyeau was reviewed by Helen and also at The Chocolate Lady's Book Reviews

There were two authors who had multiple books reviewed this month.

Barbara at Stray Thoughts is a big fan of Roseanna  M White. This month she reviewed two titles (Dreams of Savannah and Yesterday's Tides). Laura also reviewed A Beautiful Disguise.

Cathy from What Cathy Read Next read two books by Madalyn Morgan. China Blue is the third book in the Dudley Sisters series and Chasing Ghosts is the sixth, but is the sequel to China Blue, if that makes sense?

It's not too late to join the 2023 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge. The sign up post is here, and you can find the September linky to add your reviews here.

I am looking forward to seeing what people share during September. 

I am also sharing this post with Sunday Salon, hosted by Deb at Readerbuzz.


  1. I do love Agatha Christie! It's been ages since I read any of her books. I really like the cover of The Orchid Hour. I will have to add that one to my wish list. I hope you have a great week!

  2. I always love seeing these statistics!! Thank-you for putting them together.

  3. It's good to see another Roseanna M. White fan!

  4. Thanks as always for compiling and sharing. I enjoy seeing how things shake out.
