While you don’t see a lot of reviews of Historical Fiction from our blog (this is something I am slowly working through), I do enjoy reading this genre. It’s always interesting to see where authors go in the time period and how accurate it is.

  1. The American Revolution
  2. World War II Germany, England, America
  3. Victorian Era
  4. Scottish Highland during the 18th Century (Clearly referencing Outlander)
  5. Civil War
  6. World War I
  7. Post-World War II (love the fashion)
  8. Turn of the century New York (1900)
  9. Russia during the reign of Tsar Nicholas II
  10. England during Queen Elizabeth I

Clearly I am a sucker for war stories, but I also love novels during periods of change or great prosperity. In general, I love history.

  1. Have you read Front Lines by Michael Grant? I would totally recommend it if you haven’t – I loved it! It’s an ‘alternate-history’ of World War II in America where women are eligible to fight on the front lines. (: I’m slowly getting into the historical fiction genre and so far I have not been disappointed.

  2. You can’t go wrong with a good war story. I find a lot of these periods really fascinating and I would love to see more books set in these periods. Historical fiction isn’t my go-to genre but every historic book I’ve read, I have loved. Hopefully I can read more historical books this year. 😀

    1. Yeah, I’m not usually a historical fiction reader, but when I do read it, I generally love it! You might want to check out Everyone Brave is Forgiven by Chris Cleave. Really well done. Not out till May though.
