Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Favorite Historical Book Settings

Top Ten Tuesday is an original weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is Top Ten Historical Settings You Love/ Ten Historical Settings You’d Love To See or Top Futuristic Books You Love/Ten Futuristic Societies I’d Love To Read in Books — basically this week is all about the past or the future….spin it however you choose! This was a hard one for me. I don’t read a ton of historical novels or ones set in the future. But I’m going to try my best and so my choice for this week is Ten Favorite Historical Book Settings.

  1. The Book Thief is my number 1 historical book at the moment. Historical fiction isn’t my go-to but one of my goals this year is to read more. The World Wars and Civil Rights movement will always be an interesting topic to me. 😀
