2014 Historic Fiction Reading Challenge - April Review Link-Up

If you haven't signed up for the 2014 Historic Fiction Reading Challenge, it's not too late. You can sign up here.

Happy April, historic fiction lovers! How are you doing with the Historic Fiction Reading Challenge so far? How about your other 2014 challenges?

If you'd like to check out fellow participants' reviews, you can see all the January reviews here, the February reviews here, and the March reviews here. I've also updated the 2014 Historic Fiction Reading Challenge page at the top of the blog.

So far for the challenge I've read:
Mayhem by Sarah Pinborough
Lady Thief by AC Gaughen
The Clockwork Scarab by Colleen Gleason
The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan

Books I plan to read in April:
Jewel of the Thames by Angela Misri {GoodReads}
Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman {GoodReads}

Here's a refresher of how this works:
  • You read as many (or as few) historic fiction books as you want during the month of April
  • Post your review on your blog (or GoodReads, Amazon, etc if you don't have a blog) between April 1st and 30th
  • Post a direct link to your review in the Linky below
  • If you'd like to enter the giveaway, first make sure you're signed up for the challenge, then in the entry that says 'Post a review', tell me the name of the review you linked up in the Linky. Each new review = an entry in the giveaway, so don't forget to add your reviews. You can enter as many as three reviews each day (which I don't expect anyone to actually do, I just wanted to be sure there were lots of spaces for reviews). 
  • If you didn't have a chance/forgot to link up your reviews from previous months, you can link them up in April. No double posting of reviews though please. 

This month we have the wonderful Angela Misri as our sponsor. One lucky participant in April will win an ebook of Angela's brand new book, Jewel of the Thames, plus a signed postcard. Want to know more about Angela? You can find her on her website, Twitter, and GoodReads.

  • If you're on Twitter, you can use the hashtag #2014HFRC to update your progress or when you share your reviews. I'll randomly retweet tweets that use the hashtag.
  • You don't have to post the challenge button on your sidebar, but if you'd like to, you can grab the code in my right sidebar.
  • If you're interested in becoming a sponsor for the Historic Fiction Reading Challenge by donating books, ebooks, swag, gift cards, etc., please contact me at irishstar_83(at)hotmail(dot)com. If you're an author, I'll spotlight your book for the month and include your website, Twitter, Facebook, etc.; if you're a blogger, I'll spotlight your blog and other social media. All sponsors are listed on the 2014 Historic Fiction Reading Challenge page, which will stay up all year.
How many historic fiction books did you read in March? Which was your favourite? What do you plan to read in April?


  1. I found this page going through April posts. I love your idea to leave a lot of 'rafflecopter' entries. When I have time to visit a challenge blog, it's to link 10+ at once. I encourage *more* spaces. I don't have twitter / facebook and would love to replaceme those. This time, I'll remember to return 4 days x 2. ;) http://cmriedel.wordpress.com/2014/02/01/riedelchallengesfaq/

  2. Oh! I didn't see, this is an e-book. I'm print only. Would you let me know (by e-mail or my blog) if you can take my 'rafflecopter' entries out? It makes sense to save them for a prize I can claim. :) Many thanks, my well-varied countrywoman! My linked reviews are fine.


Thanks for visiting Ramblings of a Daydreamer! I love hearing what you have to say, and I appreciate every single comment. I hope to see you here again soon! ♥
