Welcome, Historical Romance lovers and new historical romance readers! Welcome to my very first Historical Romance Reading Challenge! I decided to embark and host this challenge because the historical romance is my guilty pleasure and my all-time favorite genre.

For 2017, I am challenging myself and I’m inviting everyone else to join in! You don’t have to be an uber fan of historical romance, to join. In fact, I welcome newbies and readers who want to try historical romance for the very first time!

For this challenge, my goal will be to be a Duchess and read 36 books! I also want to challenge myself and read at least one book in these categories: Regency Romance, Victorian Romance, Historical Romance with a Diverse main character.

This month was a failure for me in reading Historical Romances. I mean, I read a few, but I mostly was disappointed! I actually had to reread my favorites so I could recover from all the disappointment! I re-read 4 out of 7 books, which is why I read a LOT of historicals this month! There is still a few more days to go, who knows if I finish more historical romance books! I mean, I am on a roll!

  • The Duke (Victorian Romance) review scheduled
  • The Fairest of them All (Regency Romance) review scheduled
  • Lions and Lace (Gilded Age)
  • Fair is the Rose (Western Romance) review scheduled
  • The Bride’s Necklace (setting is 1804 which I think is closer to the Regency era)
  • The Devil’s Necklace (Pirate Historical Romance)
  • Bedchamber Games (Regency Romance) review scheduled


I also read quite a variety of categories this month! I was actually surprised that I did! I wasn’t expecting to read varied categories! As you can see, one of my goals was to read only from three categories and I read five categories!

  1. I read The Perfect Waltz in January. I’m debating about what I want to read for February! I’m thinking of reading The Duke and I, The Secret, and/or The Bride.

    • OMG DEVIL IN SPRING can’t come soon enough!! I will be putting EVERYTHING OFF just for this book! 😀

      I haven’t read a time travel HR yet. Now that I think about it, I don’t think I have in a number of years! hahaha I need to look into this pronto!
