When Are You Reading? Challenge 2018: Challenge Update

When Are You Reading Challenge 2018

One of the reading challenges I signed up to for 2018 was this one hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.  It involves reading a book predominantly set in each of the twelve time periods.

I’m happy to say that, with the help of a few swaps from my original list, I’ve managed to complete the challenge a few days ahead of the deadline.  Hooray! It does help, of course, that I read a lot of historical fiction.  You can see my list below with links to my reviews.

Sam has just launched the 2019 edition of the challenge.  You can find more details here.  I’ll certainly be taking part again and will publish my sign-up post in the next few days.

  1. Lovely post, Cathy. I used to buy my father the cream of my reading year every Christmas. Still miss putting the list together for him after ten years. Have a lovely celebratory time with your family!

  2. Congratulations from me too, some curious titles there. “The Optickal Illusion” in particular attracted my attention. I cannot wait to read it now.
