When Are You Reading? Challenge 2017


Happy New Year, readers! In the spirit of the new year, I am participating in the When Are You Reading? Challenge 2017.

This has been created by Sam at Taking on a World of Words and the challenge is to read a book set or published in 12 different time periods which are:

  • Pre 1500
  • 1500-1599
  • 1600-1699
  • 1700-1799
  • 1800-1899
  • 1900-1919
  • 1920-1939
  • 1940-1959
  • 1960-1979
  • 1980-1999
  • 2000-Present
  • The Future

I like reading historical fiction so this sounds like a fun and interesting challenge. Hopefully, I can also post some book reviews. I will track my progress on this page and include links to my reviews as I read the books.
