Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2015

I’ve been looking out for this challenge after Historical Tapestry announced that they were no longer running it and there is a new host this year – Amy at Passages to the Past. I hadn’t seen Amy’s blog before, but it looks very interesting, full of historical fiction reviews etc.

The challenge runs from January 1st to December 31st 2015 and there are six different levels to choose from:

20th century Reader – 2 books
Victorian Reader –  5 books
Renaissance Reader – 10 books
Medieval – 15 books
Ancient History – 25 books
Prehistoric [ 50+ books

Any type of historical fiction is accepted including sub-genres such as Historical Romance, Historical Mystery, Historical Fantasy and Young Adult.

Historical fiction is one of my favourite genres and last year I met my target level reading 26 books – just over the Ancient History level. I’m tempted to aim for the Prehistoric Level, but as I want to be more relaxed about challenges this year I’ll be aiming for the Ancient History level again, and if I read more then so much the better.

  1. WOW that’s quite a challenge, good luck. I love historical fiction too, but I’m not committing to anything this year, my TBR pile is mile high.


  2. Good luck with this year’s challenge and congratulations on meeting your target last year! I’ll look forward to seeing which books you decide to read.


  3. I noticed that the challenge at Historical Tapestry stopped in the fall, much to my chagrin, so I’m happy to hear that it has a new life on Passages to the Past blog. I will sign up for sure–I’m a Medievalist myself 🙂
