Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish.
Top 10 historical fiction novels.
I really love this genre, so it won't be hard to find 10 books. This reminds me of the fact that I really need to read more books in this genre :) There are so many books I want to read.
I've used the 'popular historical fiction books' and 'historical fiction 2011' lists on Goodreads as a reference.
1. I'm repeating myself over and over again, but that has to be Markus Zusak - The book thief.
2. Philippa Gregory - The other Boleyn girl. I'm fascinated by The Tudor period. This book was fantastic! I really like Gregory's writing style.
3. Diana Gabaldon - Outlander. Unfortunately, I never read the whole serie. I stopped at the third book, but I'm definitely going to read the others. This is a story about a girl from our time, who get's sucked into the past. And there she falls in love with someone.. Drama? Yes, because right here, she's already married.
4. Philippa Gregory - The Boleyn inheritance.
5. Philippa Gregory - The queen's fool.
6. Ruta Sepetys - Between shades of Gray. Lina is transported to a cold work camp in Siberia. Here they are forced, under Stalin's orders, to dig for beets and fight for their lives under the cruelest of conditions. It's such a beautiful story.
7. Diana Gabaldon - Dragonfly in Amber. Part 2 in The Outlander serie.
8. William Shakespeare - Romeo & Juliet. Ofcourse!
9. Alexandra Monir - Timeless.
10. Diana Gabaldon - Voyager. Part 3 in The Outlander serie.
So, tell me, what's your list? And if you don't make a list, what are some of your favorite historical fiction books?
Have a nice day!
