2019 Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

The Historical Fiction Reading Challenge is my favorite challenge of the year! (Although it's really not a challenge for me to read historical fiction, so I mostly use this "challenge" to make myself feel great.)

Since I've been diversifying my reading the last year or two, I'm not reading as much historical fiction as I have, so I'm not going to aim for the 50+ designation this year. I'm going to go for 'Ancient History - 25' books.

Some historical novels I'm hoping to read in 2019 include Nisi Shawl's Everfair, anything by Cat Sebastian that I haven't read yet (so maybe any 2019 releases, I think...!), Stephanie Thornton's upcoming release, American Princess, and Madeline Miller's Circe, which I didn't get to this year.

What historical novels are you looking forward to reading?

Read in 2019

Alyssa Cole, An Extraordinary Union
Alyssa Cole, A Hope Divided
Evie Dunmore, Bringing Down the Duke
Kaoru Mori, Emma, Vol 1
Kaoru Mori, Emma, Vol 2
Pat Wahler, I am Mrs. Jesse James
Kris Waldherr, The Lost History of Dreams


  1. I want to read Everfair too! Looking at my neglected Goodreads historical fiction list, I see some tempting titles: The Half-Drowned King, News of the World, The Gustav Sonata, Bohemian Gospel. I hope I get to some of them this year.

    1. All those are on my TBR -- maybe I'll get to them this year (if I'm not distracted by everything else good coming out in 2019!!)
