When Are You Reading? Challenge 2022 Sign-Up

when-are-you-reading-2022-final-1The When Are You Reading? Challenge is being hosted again by Sam at Taking on a World of Words. It involves reading a book predominantly set in (or written in) each of twelve time periods.   You can see how I got on with the 2021 challenge here.

My provisional list for the 2022 challenge is below. I’ve deliberately tried to choose, where I can, books that have been in my TBR pile for way too long. Links from the title will take you to the book description on Goodreads or, once I’ve read them, to my review.

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 2022, why not join me and sign up?
