Favorite Historical Fiction (Part 1)


I love historical fiction, which you might be able to tell by the genre of my own books:-) There are so many excellent books whose authors really manage to make you feel as though you are traveling through space and time, with developed and believable characters and a gripping plot. The more I read such book, the picker I realize I am becoming, which can be a problem. I have probably been spoiled by too much Robert Harris, Kerry Greenwood or Charles Finch. Still, I'm always on the lookout for new works in this genre to add to my never ending to-read list, so keep the recommendations coming!

Here are a few of my favorite standalone works of historical fiction.

Letters from Skye by Jessica Brockmole

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

Imperium by Robert Harris

The Lake House by Kate Morton

The Lady and the Unicorn by Tracy Chevalier

Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah

Four Fires by Bryce Courtenay


Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys

Shadows Over Paradise by Isabel Wolff

Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
