I’ve decided to join yet another reading challenge this year, the 2018 When Are You Reading Challenge hosted by Sam@Taking on a World of Words. It involves reading a book predominantly set in twelve different time periods. Fortunately, I’ve already read a few books for the different eras and so have added links to my reviews for each book.
The complete challenge will include 12 books from the following eras:
- Pre 1500 – The Last Hour by Harry Sidebottom
- 1500-1599 – The Ornatrix by Kate Howard
- 1600-1699 – The Witch Finder’s Sister
- 1700-1799 – A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
- 1800-1899 – The Flower Seller by Linda Finlay
- 1900-1919 – In Love and War by Liz Trenow
- 1920-1939 – The First Dance by Catherine Law
- 1940-1959 – Tangerine by Christine Mangan
- 1960-1979 – Black Rabbit Hall by Eve Chase
- 1980-1999 – The Queen of Bloody Everything by Joanna Nadin
- 2000-Present – The Road to Little Dribbling by Bill Bryson
- The Future – Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel
If you want to join, the rules are below, including a link to Sam’s page where there are more details in how to participate.
- Determination of what year a book belongs in is the decision of the participant. On the whole, choose a year where the largest part of the action occurs or the most important event.
- I will compile a list of those participating on this page but you can link back to this page to be added to the list so that other participants can find us!
If you want to see examples, you can see my Challenge page for an idea of how to start.
