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
- 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.

1500-1599 – The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli
1600-1699 – Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier
1700-1799 – Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift
