When are you reading challenge – 2021

I love me some historical fiction, hm? (‘nooo, really?’ Yeah, really :P)

Thing is, history has always fascinated me. When I was a wee lil thing, one of my favorite stories was Fabiola; I received The Citadel for my – uh, ninth? tenth? – birthday and I dived into it headfirst, and damn you, Andrew, how could you?; the Grail Quest saga and The Onyx came along, then the Magdeburg saga, then–

Uh. You get my gist, I guess. History = ❤

So, when I saw how Taking on a World of Words was hosting a 2021 challenge called When are you reading? my brain went yay.gif in zero point three.

The long and the short of it:

Read one book from each of twelve time periods. It’s up to the reader where a book lies. You can do it based on publication date or setting, whatever you want. Feel free to switch it up, too.

The time periods are:

  • Pre 1300
  • 1300-1499
  • 1500-1699
  • 1700-1799
  • 1800-1899
    • Civil War Life, by J. Sharer
    • The Savage Instinct, by M.M. DeLuca
    • The Champagne Widow, by H. Fripp
  • 1900-1919
  • 1920-1939
  • 1940-1959
  • 1960-1979
  • 1980-1999
  • 2000-Present
    • Red Hail, by J. Killen
  • The Future

By pure, total coincidence I already have 3 ARC books that would fill up 3 different spots 😀

Thank you again for hosting this, Sam! It’s going to be a fun ride.
