Hi everybody! So sorry we haven't been active lately! We've all been super busy but we're hoping to get back on track with our August read and we'd like you to help us choose it! Our theme is HISTORICAL and we'd love to read your recommendations about it!

I'll start us off by suggesting The Bronze Horseman which I''ve wanted to read for a while!

Alex (ReadingBetweenTheNotes) (readingbetweenthenotes) Love the suggestions so far! I don't read a lot of historical fiction so I apologise if any of these aren't appropriate.

All The Light We Cannot See
The Blind Assassin
Memoirs of a Geisha
A Conneticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

Also, some that I've already read and loved are:
The Book Thief
The Kite Runner

The Scarlet Letter
Memoirs of a Geisha
Sarah's Key
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas

Not sure if I am on the right track that you all were looking for, but these are all in my TBR pile & considered "historical" according to my Goodreads search.
