  2. I'm gonna go for Renaissance Reader for 2018. I surpassed my 2017 goal of Victorian, but didn't quite make Medieval this year, with 13 historical fiction books.

  9. I've signed up and I'm going for Prehistoric...purely on the basis I looked at my reading schedule for January and most of it is historical fiction!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Ok, going to try! Going for Medieval - 15 books... way less than I used to read, but hopefully I can gobble a bunch up during breaks

    1. Updated Challenge Goal: On second thought, since the challenge hasn't officially started, I will go for Renaissance Reader - 10 books instead. That seems like a more realistic goal for my first attempt at this challenge.

  17. I just stumbled across this challenge, but I'm already looking forward to it. I'm aiming to become a Renaissance Reader. Thanks for hosting!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm in again! Probably going to go with Renaissance to Medieval, 10-15 titles. We'll see how the year goes. My reading habits have slowed down like crazy; I haven't even uploaded a review in 2 months. *cringe* So that level is probably about what I could handle in foreseeable future. Thanks again for running this challenge!! I love exploring all the history titles others are reading (even though I may not be as good on the commenting part as I could be). :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. I made it to Medieval level this year, so let's hope I can do at least that in 2018!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Didn't quite make it to the Victorian level in 2017 so I will try again. Good luck everyone and thanks again for hosting this challenge

    ReplyDelete
  21. I made it to 49 books! I did make my goal of the Ancient History Level, looking forward to planning out next year.

  22. I am sticking with it this year, darn it.

  23. I'm so excited to be joining in this year! It's the right motivation I need to get back into reading historical fiction!

  27. I’m in for the first time. I’ll post on Goodreads https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/18499870-lara-maynard and sometimes on my Facebook page The Bletchley Circle Watchers https://www.facebook.com/TheBletchleyCircleWatchers/ when the books l read are relevant to that. I sometimes blog about books there, especially WWII fiction. Looking forward to participating!

  28. Q: please clarify for a newbie: Are the reading challenge levels meant to be per month or for the duration of the reading challenge? Ex. Does a Victorian Reader do 5 books in January or over the whole challenge time?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Is the badge the image of the woman reading at the top of this post? Got it, then.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I want to take the Reading Challenge to read 2 20th Century books.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have not been able to keep up with the reading challenge the past year, but I hope to stay current this time around. Thanks again for hosting this!

  32. Hallo Ms Bruno,

    I need to create a page dedicated to my Historical readings this year, however, in lieu of that I wanted to at least leave a comment to announce I am participating! :) Once I have the post live on my blog I'll add it to the linky directly. I have one review so far to share for January with more to follow,... I read my first Mills & Boon Historical recently and positively loved it! It took me by surprise as it wasn't the typical story I was expecting to find.

    Without even trying I tend to be Pre-Historic with my #HistFic, so I'll re-attempt this during 2018 as well! :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Thanks so much for hosting this! A couple of years ago, I discovered this wonderful genre. I'm looking forward to reading some wonderful historical fiction books this year. I have signed up!

    ReplyDelete
  34. What a fun idea! My bubblebath, a candle and my kindle. My idea of heaven... oh, and a glass of champagne.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Great idea, I’m in. I’m not setting a level, I’ll let it evolve. I’ve already read two historical novels and started a third. My favorite sub genre is historical mysteries.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Im in! 20th century reader here

    ReplyDelete
  37. I came across this challenge while writing a blog for Fairlight Books. I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else is reading and recommending. Most of all I'd like to find some hidden gems of the genre!
    I'm aiming for Victorian Reader.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Signed up Amy even though I am a bit late!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I'm in as well - Victorian reader :)
