Top Ten Historical Settings I Love

Posted February 2, 2016 in Top Ten Tuesday / Leave a comment!

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Each week we will post a new Top Ten listΒ  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
I wouldn’t say that historical fiction is a genre I will go out of my way to read but when I do pick it up I end up loving them. I just really love seeing some of these places in the past! (mostly Victorian England to be honest)Β Whether I loved the book or not these are still some of my favourite historical settings:
1. Hollow City by Ransom Riggs: Takes place in 1940’s London, during the war.
2. The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross: Takes place in 1897’s England, very steampunk.
3. Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness: Takes place in 1590’s London, adult fantasy.
4. The Diviners by Libba Bray: Takes place in 1926’s New York.
5. A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray: Takes places in a Victorian style Russia, time travel.
6. Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers: Takes place in the Brittany High Court, has assassin nuns.
7. Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare: Takes place in 1878 London, steampunk.
8. Tiger’s Destiny b Colleen Houck: Takes (partially) place in a very, very old India, like almost cave man style.
9. Renegade by L.A. Wilcox: Takes place in pre-revolutionary Boston, also time travel.
10. Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson: Takes place in Gold Rush-era America.

    • I was going to do the future topic but I feel like a lot of dystopias are all the same so I’m getting tired of them haha. I only had like 12 books to pick from for historical though!

  1. Awesome selections! One of my fave books is Grave Mercy! I haven’t read Girl in the Steel Corset, A Thousand Pieces of You or Walk on Earth a Stranger yet. I’m adding them to my TBR list.

    I ADORED Walk on Earth A Stranger!! I think that era, with all the colony and pioneer stuff going on, is one of my favourites to read about. xD
    Thanks for stopping by @ Paper Fury!
