Next year I’m excited to participate in the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge, hosted by Amy at Pages to the Past.
I found out about the challenge through Christopher’s blog, and it sounds like a great way to read more of a genre I’m not very familiar with. One of my goals in 2019 is to expand my tastes and discover new favorite genres, so this challenge comes at the perfect time.
The rules are simple. You read as much historical fiction as you want throughout the year, while aiming toward reaching a certain reading level. The levels are as follows:
20th Century Reader – 2 books
Victorian Reader – 5 books
Renaissance Reader – 10 books
Medieval – 15 books
Ancient History – 25 books
Prehistoric – 50+ books
Each month a post will be created on Amy’s website where you and other participants can post links to reviews of historical fiction; there’s no obligation to post each month, and any subgenre of historical fiction is accepted.
I’m hoping to meet the Victorian Reader challenge level (5 books). I’ll be trying out as many new genres as possible in 2019, and I don’t want to overcommit myself to historical fiction. If I meet the goal earlier than anticipated, I’ll definitely aim for a higher level.
Are you planning on participating in any reading challenges in 2019?
