2012 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge


Historical Tapestry is hosting the 2013 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge again this year. Here are the details:

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

  • everyone can participate, even those who don't have a blog (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, do not add your blog link, but the correct address that will guide us directly to your review)
  • any kind of historical fiction is accepted (HF fantasy, HF young adult,...)
During these 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

You can tailor the challenge to suit you in whichever way you like! For example, I know of one participant who over the last couple of years has only read historical mysteries as it suits their own reading tastes!

To join the challenge you only need to make a post about it, go to Historical Tapestry sign up page and leave your link in Mr Linky. If you don't have a blog you can just leave a comment saying that you are joining.
The challenge runs from 1 January to 31 December 2013.
I read at least 12 historical fiction books last year, so I'm going for the Medieval reading level - 15 books. Good luck to everyone else who is joining! Sign-up soon!


  1. We are glad to have you back for the challenge again this year!

  2. Would you be interested in doing a guest post for me the first week in March? I'm currently working on a book blog tour for my new cozy mystery. (I couldn't find an e-mail address for you to contact you directly).
