2019 Challenges

2019 Historical Reading Challenge


I’ve decided to sign up for my first 2019 reading challenge. It’s hosted by Amy @ Passages to the Past and thanks to Mackey @ Macsbooks for making me aware of the challenge. I’m beginning to read more of this genre and am currently participating in a Goodreads group read of the Gaslight Mystery Series by Victoria Thompson, which fits this category.

Reading Challenge Details

Each month, a new post dedicated to the HF Challenge will be created. To participate, you only have to follow the rules below.

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.)

During the following 12 months you can choose one of the different reading levels:

  • 20th Century Reader – 2 books
  • Victorian Reader – 5 books

  1. Sounds like a neat challenge. I usually read some historical romance. Though I have been hard pressed for time to keep up with updating all my challenges. Though I also find them hard to resist lol.
