Dale Ibitz (goodreadscomdale_ibitz) Not usually my genre, but (and this is biased) a friend of mine wrote a historical fiction that made the semi-finals in the Amazon 2012 contest, and just got picked up by a publisher...to be released next year. It's a YA historical, Call Me Butterfly, and it's very good!

Tiffany McFly (tiffmcfly) I'm not too big on the genre either, but the best I have read in it would probably be The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.

I cried.

Little Bee (LittleBeesReads) My favorite is a mix of historical fiction and thriller. The Alienist and The Angel of Darkness. It is a two book series by Caleb Carr. It is based in late 1800, early 1900 New York City. It is a group of people- a forensic psychologist, a couple of detectives who are trying new forensic techniques, and a couple of other people. Each book they are solving specific crimes. They are beautifully written and a "hard to put down" type of book. I read through them very quickly and was very sad when they were over.
