Historical Fiction Reading Challenge - December Linky


And so we come to the last month of the 2023 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge!

I have been thinking about next year's challenge and the sign up post will be up within the next couple of days, and I will add a post for you to add any wrap up posts shortly after. If you have any suggestions for next years challenge I would love to hear them so please leave a comment.

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

If you haven't already signed up, it's not too late (but it nearly is!) The 2023 sign up post is 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 aren't sure if your book counts as historical fiction, check out this definition.
  • 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!!
