Looking Forward To 2021: Reading Challenges Part 2

on December 3, 2020

Yesterday I signed up for my first reading challenge of 2021 and now I’m back just a day later, signing up for my second!

My participation in challenges has ebbed and flowed over the years. Apart from one year a couple of years ago, I’ve always had at least one challenge on the go and anywhere up to half a dozen. I really enjoy participating in challenges – some are harder than others, I sprinkle in ones that are less challenging, with ones that require me to really scour for reads.

One of the ones that I feel will be less challenging but highly enjoyable, is the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2021, hosted by Marg @ The Intrepid Reader. Marg is one of my great blogging friends, we’ve known each other over a decade now and I thank her for many of my favourite reads, a lot of which are historical. When she told me that she would be hosting the challenge this year, I knew immediately that I’d be signing up. I read quite a lot of historical fiction/historical romance so I feel I can participate in this one at a pretty high level.

About the challenge:

Each month, a new post dedicated to the HF Challenge will be created where you can add the links for the books you have read. Everyone can participate! If you don’t have a blog you can post a link to your review if it’s posted on Goodreads, Facebook, or Amazon, or you can add your book title and thoughts in the comment section if you wish.

To participate, you only have to follow the rules: 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 use the direct URL that will guide us directly to your review). Any sub-genre of historical fiction is accepted (Historical Romance, Historical Mystery, Historical Fantasy, Young Adult, History/Non-Fiction, etc.)

During the 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
Prehistoric – 50+ books

I had a quick count up of all the historical books I’ve read this year, because it’s almost over and I was at about 39. This has been a better reading year than most so I’m going to go with Ancient History which is 25 books. That’s something I feel I can achieve comfortably and I can always set my bar higher and aim for Prehistoric if it’s a particularly good reading year with lots of historical fiction releases that I’m finding interesting.

If this sounds like something you’d enjoy, head over to this post on Marg’s blog and check it out and sign up!
