2019 When Are You Reading? Challenge

I had a lot of fun during the previous four years (click to see lists for 2015 , 2016, 2017 and 2018), so of course I couldn’t resist signing up again for next year. This challenge is hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words and is all about reading books either published or set in different time periods… The perfect way of reading books of different eras!

She made a slight change to the early eras for 2019, which suits me perfectly because I’ve always had trouble to find titles for the pesky 1600s era. The complete challenge will include 12 books from the eras. Below I will be adding the titles I have managed to read for each era, and again I will do things differently and not add every book to the list, just one or two for each era depending on the color each title has. I have divided my reads into two categories: 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.
