Other than setting a yearly reading goal at Goodreads, I haven’t participated in reading challenges. I know many people enjoy them, but I never felt motivated to join in—until now. I just signed up for the 2020 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge! I love Historical fiction, and read it regularly, so this is the perfect reading challenge for me.
Amy is hosting the reading challenge on Passages to the Past. Everyone is welcome to participate, whether they have a blog or not. Any sub-genre of historical fiction is accepted, as well as nonfiction history.
You don’t have to read a ton of historical fiction to join in, either. There are challenge level choices available to suit your reading style, whether you’re a casual or hardcore reader of historical fiction.
- 20th Century Reader – 2 books
- Victorian Reader – 5 books
- Renaissance Reader – 10 books
- Medieval – 15 books
- Ancient History – 25 books
- Prehistoric – 50+ books
I feel confident that I’ll be able to Medieval level—perhaps even the Ancient History level. I have many books that qualify for this challenge on my TBR shelf, so I’m excited to see what level I’ll hit by the end of the year.
