Hello fellow bookworms, it is a new year and a new decade, and I thought time for a new reading challenge. I have long followed fellow blogger, Helen taking part in the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge, hosted by Amy at Passages to the Past, and always thought that looks like fun. So, finally, I am going to give it a go, too.
Here are the details of the challenge:
- The challenge runs from January 1st to December 31st, 2020.
- Each month, a new post dedicated to the HF Challenge will be created.
- Everyone can participate! If you don’t have a blog you can post a link to your review if it’s posted on Goodreads, Facebook, or Amazon, or you can add your book title and thoughts in the comment section if you wish.
- 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 use the direct URL that will guide us directly to your review)
- Any sub-genre of historical fiction is accepted (Historical Romance, Historical Mystery, Historical Fantasy, Young Adult, History/Non-Fiction, etc.)
Also there are the following different reading levels to choose from:
- 20th Century Reader – 2 books
- Victorian Reader – 5 books
- Renaissance Reader – 10 books
- Medieval – 15 books
- Ancient History – 25 books
- Prehistoric – 50+ books
I will be aiming for the Renaissance Reader level, as I think ten books is a fair amount to aim for, considering I read eight historical-fictions last year. In fact, historical-fiction was my joint highest-read genre for the last couple of years. So really this isn’t so much about the ‘challenge’, but instead more about linking into the monthly challenge posts, seeing what others are reading and discovering new novels and bloggers.
Now over to you: Are you taking part in this challenge too? What historical-fictions are you looking forward to reading this year?
