2015 Historical Romance/ Fiction Reading Challenge

2015 Historical Romance Reading  Challenge

I'm going to go for the historical romance challenge again, hosted by Anna at Herding Cats Burning Soup, because I enjoyed it last year!

The Challenge 
All historical romances over 80 pages count!
Anything prior to 1920 as far as year goes.
All you do is read then review (on goodreads, amazon or your blog) then link up your review :)
It can be a fusion read (ex–paranormal historical)
Cross over from other challenges count.
You don’t have to be a blogger to join in.
The Levels
1–6 books
2–12 books
3–24 books
4–48 books
5–100+ books

 I’m going for Level 2

1. Zion's Call by Jeremy Maughan

2015's "Reading Through Time" Historical Fiction Reading Challenge

Hosted here

So here are the rules, which are almost identical to the rules for the Cloak & Dagger Reading Challenge I am also hosting:

1.) The challenge starts January 6, 2015 and ends  December 31, 2015.

2.) You can read any novel, short story or author just so that the genre is historical fiction, and yes this genre is a wide one in terms of defining historical fiction but I trust your judgement if you think it is in the historical fiction genre it probably is. Even those mysteries you might read for the Cloak & Dagger Reading Challenge might even qualify since a lot of them occur in the past.

3.) 1 novel counts as 1 novel( 1 novel is anything over 100 pages) of course but you will have to read 5 short stories to count as 1 novel. Audio books and e-books also count.

4.) There will be a monthly post for you to add a link or links to your post showing the progress that you have made so far. There will be two link-ups on each reading challenge post, one is a text link-up for those of you who are participating without a blog/through Goodreads/or through another way and then a thumbnail link-up for those of you that are participating from a blog.

5.) There will be a book giveaway each month and for initially signing up.

As an incentive each month’s link-up post (including this sign-up link-up post) will be followed by another link-up post that will be a giveaway of a work of historical fiction from my own bookshelf, just a note that these are used books but I would never give away something not up to par so even though it is used it is still in good condition.

The post for the giveaway and reading challenges are separate you will be able to see which book I am giving away and then you get to decide whether you want to enter for the giveaway or not, you do have to sign-up to enter the sign-up giveaway and then for the monthly giveaway you will have had to link-up a read for that month.

If you read a certain number of novels you receive a rank, which are named after historical fiction authors, at the end I will award a secret prize to the person who reads the most books:

5 books= Anthony Doerr
10 books = Kate Morton
15 books = Sarah Waters
20 books = Linda Lafferty
25 books = Hilary Mantel
30 books= Philippa Gregory
35 books= Ken Follett
40+ books= Diana Gabaldon
