2017 When Are You Reading? Challenge

when-are-you-reading-2017-final

It’s the start of a new year, which means it’s time for yet another When Are You Reading? challenge! I really enjoyed participating in the previous two years (2015 and 2016), so I immediately decided to sign up for this year as well. This challenge is hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words and is all about reading books either set or published in twelve different time periods. The perfect way of reading books of different eras! Make sure to check out Sam’s post and sign up if you are interested.

I will divide 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.

When Are You Reading? Challenge COMPLETED!

when-are-you-reading-2015

Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words is hosting the When Are You Reading? Challenge this year, a challenge that is all about reading more books that either travel to different eras or are actually written in different times. There are twelve eras in total, and by finishing Hamlet and My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century last week I was finally able to complete the challenge! 😀 😀

For an (almost) complete list of the books I’ve read by era, check out this post here. I have to admit I haven’t updated my TimeToast timeline in months, but I have taken the time to make a shiny timeline of my own. With no less than 180! titles finished this year, I haven’t added all of them to the timeline below; I have only added one per year and picked the most important ones. Books have been divided by publish date and by setting, and in those cases the setting is not specified or is roughly the same as the publish date, I have used this color.
