The Historical Fiction Reading Challenge is hosted by Marg at The Intrepid Reader. You can find full details of the challenge here (and you can still sign up to take part) but the idea is to choose one of six different reading levels to aim for:
20th Century Reader – 2 books
Victorian Reader – 5 books
Renaissance Reader – 10 books
Medieval – 15 books
Ancient History – 25 books
Prehistoric – 50+ books
Since I read a lot of historical fiction I decided to aim for the Prehistoric reading level. Here’s a snapshot of my progress as at the end of June, along with a few of my favourites from the books I’ve read. Links from the title will take you to my review.
January – Seven books, including The Man in the Bunker by Rory Clements
April – Seven books, including The Sunken Road by Ciarán McMenamin
May – Seven books, including The White Girl by Tony Birch
June – Four books, including Kezia and Rosie by Rebecca Burns
So that’s 42 books that match the challenge critera read so far!
