2021 When Are You Reading Challenge- Sign Up Post

I’ve been blogging on and off for three or four years as of writing but somehow I missed the When Are You Reading Challenge that’s been running since 2014.

The idea behind it is to read twelve books from twelve time periods, and I had made up a reading list before realising that I’ve already signed up to one reading challenge already- but I really want to take part in both, so here we are.

The When Are You Reading Challenge was created and hosted by Sam @ Taking On A World Of Words.

My Reading List


The Odyssey or Macbeth

1300- 1499

Game Of Thrones


The Other Boleyn Girl


The Gentleman’s Guide To Vice and Virtue or The Lady’s Guide To Petticoats and Piracy

His Last Bow or Fall of Giants


The ABC Murders


Dear Mrs Bird


To Kill A Mockingbird


Die Trying

2000- Present

Top 5 Tuesday: Top 5 Covers of 2020

One of my favourite things about following book blogs is getting to see all the pretty book covers.

Here are some of my favourites from this year.

Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan Reads.

Hamnet by Maggie o’farrell

I thought I was over my phase of buying books because they look nice, but that was before I kept seeing the hardcover edition of Hamnet all over my social media feeds.


The Devil and The Dark Water by stuart turton

This one doesn’t have much going on with it, but I love the colours and the little compass on the front. Plus the hardcover edition has matching sprayed edges, which I just love.

Beach Read by emily henry

Beach Read is easily one of the brightest books I own. I love the vivid colours and the beach design, which ties in with the title and the story.

The Flat Share by Beth O’Leary

I loved this story, and seeing the cover makes me remember it.

Three Things About Elsie by Joanna Cannon

Technically I’m cheating a little for this last one since I didn’t read this book in 2020, but I couldn’t include it.
