Historical Fiction Reading challenge - December stats


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 one book to my TBR!


In terms of the books, it was a good month for reviews with 45 reviews linked up for the challenge, shared by 15 participants, which is a lot less than this time last year, but that's okay.  Interestingly there were 45 individual titles reviewed, written by 44 different authors. In other words, there were no books that were reviewed more than once. There were 3 reviewers who reviewed 5 or more books each this month. Thank you to everyone who shared their links whether it be 6 or just 1. 

Whilst there was no single title which was reviewed more than once, there was one author who had two books reviewed. That author was Rebecca Netley whose book The Black Feathers was reviewed by Helen at She Reads Novels and The Whistling was reviewed by Alexis over at Goodreads. 

Next month I will be back with all the statistics for December and for the whole year. I just had a sneak peak and I think we will have a clear leader for the book that has been reviewed most during the year, but there are a couple of others that are only one behind, so who knows!!

I have recently posted the linkup post for the 2024 challenge which can be found here. This week I will also be posting a post where people can add any wrap up posts for the 2023 challenge.

I am linking this post up with Sunday Salon hosted at Readerbuzz!


  1. I will be very curious to see what books were reviewed the most often this year. From your statistics for November, I can see that there are a lot of people who love historical fiction.

  2. Interesting as always, thanks. And your cliffhanger has my curious what book was reviewed the most.

  3. All will be revealed soon Mark!

  4. We should try to figure out where everyone lives too!
