I love a good historical fiction book! Anyone else? Post your thoughts here!

Off the top of my head I can say the Bloody Jack series and At the Sign of the Sugared Plum! Plus many of those Dear America or whatevers.

Lyla Lougee (LylaLougee-Author) | 32 comments I really don't like Dear Americas, but that's my personal oppnion on that kind of book. Not the books themselves. Um... Wolf Brother is kind of historical fiction I guess... That's all I can think of right now, but there's probably more.

Rosalyn Leigh (t-rose) a classmate of mine told me about the Outlander series by Ann Gabaldon.if im not mistakes it involves a lot of time travel that spans from the 1700's to the 1970's.

ok i got three more! Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson. A bit of a younger read but still amazing!

The Pox Party (Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing.) This one was weird but good. Still havent picked up the sequel.

The Luxe by Anna Godberson. AMAZING...definitely one of my fav book series!

I was the same with the Luxe, but then I read it. Needless to say, I have the entire luxe series on my bookshelf in hardcover...I absolutely love Anna Godberson's writing style, so Bright Young Things will be on my shelf soon...
