Culture | Top 10… Historical Fiction

via Daily Prompt: Culture

Historical fiction might very well be one of the most controversial (?) genres of books. This, I think is greatly due to the fact that people’s definition of historical fiction varies. But, nonetheless, I love historical fiction. So I thought that I’d give a top ten historical fiction books.

  1. Burial Rites by Hannah Kent
  2. Fire by Night by Lynn Austen
  3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
  4. My Lady Jane by Brodi Ashton, Cynthia Hand, and Jodie Meadows
  5. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr
  6. A Spy in the House by Y.S. Lee
  7. Snow Treasure by Marie McSwigan
  8. Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly
  9. A Place of Greater Safety by Hilary Mantel
  10. In the Shadow of the Lamp by Susanne Dunlap

Honorable Mentions:

  • Anastasia’s Secret by Susanne Dunlap
  • Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel
  • The Devil’s Arithmetic by Jane Yolen
