Historical Fiction Recs

Anyone who reads my blog is bound to learn that while I read many genres, I’m a huge fantasy and historical fiction fan. I do book reviews on some of my reads, so check the reviews tag to read them or my goodreads page. I often feel like historical fiction doesn’t get as much attention as fantasy and some of my other favorite genres, so I’ve taken it upon myself to create a list of recommendations based on historical time periods and places. I’m keeping the list to books I’ve personally read. If you are looking to try out some historical fiction or want some books in specific time periods or places, check the list below. I’ll update it over time as I read more great historical books.

Tudor Fiction

Between authors Alison Weir and Philippa Gregory, there are a lot of great options out there.
