2023 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge Wrap Up Posts


And just like that, we are at the end of the 2023 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 Proxy Bride by Zoe Boccabella
The Flame Tree by Siobhan Daiko (my review)
Mrs Harris Goes to Paris by Paul Gallico
The Kitchen Front by Jennifer Ryan (my review)
Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne
My Father's House by Joseph O'Connor
The Forgotten Palace by Alexandra Walsh (my review)
The Girl Who Escaped by Angela Petch (my review)
