About the 2022 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge:
Again in 2022 this Reading Challenge will be hosted by Marg at The Intrepid Reader. Marg actually hosted the challenge before passing the baton to Amy at Passages to the Past, and last year she passed it back to her.
I’ll be sticking to the Ancient History level again this year.
To date, this year I’ve read and reviewed 38 Historical Fiction books (and I have at least one more to go before the new year begins).
The History behind the Reading Challenge:
The Historical Fiction Reading Challenge has been around for many years in one form or another. Marg believes that the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge started at a blog called Reading, Writing and Ranting since at least 2008 before it was taken over by The Royal Reviews which is when Marg started participating! In 2011, Marg started co-hosting at Historical Tapestry until Amy from Passages to the Past took over in 2015 and has been doing a stellar job ever since.
Reading Challenge details:
Each month, a new post dedicated to the HF Challenge will be created where you can add the links for the books you have read. To participate, you only have to follow the rules:
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 they’ll be adding to their monthly post (please use the direct URL that will guide them directly to your review)
Any sub-genre of historical fiction is accepted (Historical Romance, Historical Mystery, Historical Fantasy, Young Adult, History/Non-Fiction, etc.)
During the following 12 months you can choose one of the different reading levels:
- 20th Century Reader – 2 books
- Victorian Reader – 5 books
- Renaissance Reader – 10 books
- Medieval – 15 books
- Ancient History – 25 books
- Prehistoric – 50+ books
