  1. Oh I love historical fiction too! Although it's probably not my favourite genre now but I grew up with a reading diet of like 90% HF. ;D It was glorious. I so want to read Outlander sometime! And I love Elizabeth Wein's historicals about WWII and women awesome pilots and spies! Here's my TTT!

    1. Out of the three I've read so far, Outlander is my favorite but the others were really great as well. And of course I'm super excited for season 3 of the tv series.

  3. I love history in general but I only read books from The War of the Roses/ Tudor period so I haven't read any of your selections. Some nice covers though!

    1. I will read a Tudor book this year! I'm just more drawn to ancient history so it's hard sometime to get away from that.

  4. I actually avoid historical fiction...I never seem to get into it, but seeing some of these recommendations makes me question why I do that. I should definitely give them a shot :) Outlander is the only one I know, actually. Maybe I'll start there. Thanks for the recommendations.

  6. OMG! I l o o o o v e historical fiction! Mostly adult historical romance, but I do like general adult historical fiction, and YA historical fiction. I read Curses and Smoke - we need more YA stories set in Pompeii for sure. That was an interesting book. I'm curious about The Emperor's Conspiracy!

    Might I recommend The Valiant by Lesley Livingston? Gladiators, ancient Rome, amazing book. :D

    Have a wonderful week, Stephanie. =)

  12. Great list! I don't read nearly enough historical fiction, but when I do I always enjoy them. I do have Outlander on my TBR though, but I think I need to finish a few of my current series before starting such a big one.

    Thanks for visiting my post.
