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
Cynthia Sally Haggard, Farewell My Life
Susan Higginbotham, The First Lady and the Rebel
Vanessa Kelly, The Highlander's Christmas Bride
Kaoru Mori, Emma, Vol 1
Kaoru Mori, Emma, Vol 2
Caroline Scott, The Poppy Wife
Sarah-Jane Stratford, Red Letter Days
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!!)
