Sunday Salon: Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2024 January Statistics


For the last couple of years I have been sharing statistics each month for the Historical challenge, and my plan is to continue to do this again this year. I find it interesting to see what are the books that people are reading and reviewing! Having visited most of January's posts, I can tell you that there are some very interesting books being reviewed - unusual times and places, translated fiction and more - and I have added several books to my TBR list!


In terms of the books, there were 59 reviews linked up for the challenge, shared by 23 participants. This is less than for the same month last year but I am sure we will catch up!  There were 57 individual titles reviewed, written by 57 different authors. There were 2 reviewers who reviewed more than 5 books each. Thank you to everyone who shared their links whether it be 9 or just 1.

So which books were reviewed more than once in January?




The first book was The Lily of Ludgate by Mimi Matthews, the third book in the Belles of London series,  which was reviewed by both Susan at Reading World and Laura at Laura's Reviews. This author has appeared a few time on these monthly stats posts which attests to her popularity.




The other book to be reviewed more than once was The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie which was reviewed by Shellie at Shellie Loves Books and Laura at Laura's Reviews

This month there were no other authors who were reviewed more than once, which is actually quite unusual!

If you haven't already signed up, it's not too late! The sign up post is here and you can add your links to the February link post here.

  1. I hope to read more historical fiction this year. To help me do so, I signed up for the challenge again. I like your summary for each month; your summary alerts me about some historical fiction that I might have missed.

  3. What a great idea to list the summaries each month for your challenge! Matthew's series has been on my radar since her first one came out.
