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 (or written in) each of twelve time periods. You can see how I got on with the 2020 challenge here.
My provisional list for the 2021 challenge is below. Links from the title will take you to the book description on Goodreads or, once I’ve read them, to my review. I’ve deliberately chosen books that have either been in my TBR pile for way too long or have forthcoming publication dates.
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 2021, why not join me and sign up?
