The When Are You Reading? Challenge is hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words and involves reading a book predominantly set in each of the twelve time periods. You can see how I got on with the 2018 challenge here.
My list for the 2019 challenge is now complete! Links from the title will take you to my review. I deliberately chose books that had been in my TBR pile for way too long.
If you love historical fiction but often find yourself sticking to one or two favourite time periods, or if you’re keen to read more historical fiction in 2020, look out for next year’s challenge sign-up post.
