Historical Fiction Reading Challenge


Well folks! This is my first 2013 Reading Challenge post, this journey will be a long but fun one! I’ve joined 5 challenges and refuse to do more than that (I’ll drown!). Links for each book will take you to either Amazon or GoodReads, up to you.

Who? 2013 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge
When? January to December 2013
What? Historical fiction awesomeness! I am a huge fan of historical fiction and I am glad to finally have an excuse to push and pursue this genre more extensively.
Level? Ancient History (25+ historical books! Eep!)

This is a fairly simply challenge to join, all you have to do is send a link of your review of HFReadingChallenge2013-V2the book you’ve finished and voila, you’re one step closer to completing it.

Here are some of the books that I intend to read for this challenge in January:

Ancient History, 25 + books (26 books listed)
Status: Ugh, 26 to go….

  • The Witch’s Daughter
  • Blood Between Queens (View Review)
  • The Hangman’s Daughter Series
  • Roses Have Thorns: A Novel Of Elizabeth I
  • The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ  (View Review)
  • God’s Of Heavenly Punishment
  • Cliff Of The Ruin
  • Citadel
  • Lady Julia Mystery series
  • Outlander series
  • The Help
  • Daughter Of The Sky (View Review)

The books will grow, worry not (I mean, I need to read 25+ of them right?). Do you read HF? I prefer Historical Thrillers so you bet this list will soon fill up with some underhanded historical mystery…

  2. This is such a fun challenge. Great selection you’ve picked as well!

  3. Okay, this thrills me. I LOOOOOVE historical fiction! Sarah Dunant’s books are fab, but if you want more Italian Renaissance fare (pun completely intended) try Leonardo’s Swans by Karen Essex or I, Mona Lisa by Jean Kalogridis. And. OUTLANDER. It owns my soul. Delightful.
