This year the Historical Fiction Reading Challenge 2015 is going to be hosted by Passages to the Past for the first time.

To complete the challenge, readers need to choose one of the following reading levels: 

20th century Reader - 2 books
Victorian Reader - 5 books
Renaissance Reader - 10 books
Medieval - 15 books
Ancient History - 25 books
Prehistoric - 50+ books

I've decided to sign up for the Medieval level again this year and will need to read 15 historical fiction novels to be successful.
