2017 When Are You Reading? Challenge: DONE

when-are-you-reading-2017-final

I honestly wasn’t expecting I was going to make it this time,  but I managed to finish When Are You Reading? 2017 with only hours to spare! It was my third time participating in this challenge (click to see lists for 2015 and 2016) hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words. It is all about reading books either set or published in twelve different time periods. The perfect way of reading books of different eras!

Below my list of books I managed to read for each era…I have divided my reads into two categories like last year: books by publish date and books by setting. When the setting is not specified or is roughly the same as the publish date, I will use this color. For a full list, check out my update post.

    • Yeah she is doing one this year as well! I’m not sure whether to sign up again because I’m trying to avoid pressure… But it’s definitely a fun challenge to join.

    • I’m probably going to pass or at least wait until the first months are over before I decide… I don’t want to put too much pressure on myself this year. 😉 I did join two ABC challenges last year (book title and author), but completely failed with the first so I won’t be doing that again haha.

    • Thank you for hosting! I’m going to wait for a little while this year because I don’t want too much pressure this year… Those earlier eras are HARD. 😉 And what a good way to start the year! Happy reading
