Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2013

This is one challenge I can definitely say I will complete in 2013. I have been participating in this challenge for three years, but this time I am going to make sure I actually link up my reviews each month over at the hosting site, Historical Tapestry

Here are the details from the sign-up page:

Each month, a new post dedicated to the HF Challenge will be created. 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!

The challenge runs from 1 January to 31 December 2013.

My Goal:
  • Ancient History -25+ books
Progress So Far:
  1. The Kingmaker's Daughter by Philippa Gregory
  2. Stephen King - On Writing by Stephen King
  3. The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley

I always do this one as well and while I am always very successful, one of the things I am terrible at doing is linking my reviews to the challenge page. That is my new goal for this year. Good luck with the challenge!!

I have never done this challenge before but I have signed up to do it this year! This one will be easy for me if I just remember to link to my reviews :)!.

I've joined this challenge, too, Svea, but it's actually not a "challenge" at all! I love historical fiction. Good luck, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you read for this challenge.

I hope you all do remember to link up your reviews! We got so close to having 1000 reviews last year, it would be great to exceed that amount this year!

Of course, I quite often forget myelf until I am putting up the monthly post!
