Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday! Our Host is Jana @thatartsyreadergirl. Every week, readers gather and respond to
1- Romanov by Nadine Brandes
I read this Anastasia retelling in nineteen days when it came out. I loved this book so much! About half the novel was the Romanov’s in exile, and their life in a house where they couldn’t do that much. As the story progresses, we see that Nastya is a spell master, so this is how Fantasy
I have discussed this book on the blog before, however; this list would not be complete without one of my favorite Historical Fiction’s. The story takes place after Fiddler on the Roof; it is a sequel featuring one of my favorite characters. Hodel and Perchik spend a good portion of the novel apart, told in duel perspectives we find out where Hodel and
3- The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
This is a World War 2 novel told in letters about the war and the aftermath for the island of Guernsey. This was such a sweet novel, and I loved the world and the characters. The story follows Juliet, a writer who is looking for a story, and the community that grew to love her. I don’t want to give the plot away, but this story ends with a sweet romance.
4- The Romanov Sisters by Helen Rappaport
This is a
5- The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue (Montague Siblings # 1) by
I love Monty, Percy, and Felicity so much! This story that follows the three characters on a journey, as they go on a tour before Monty will have to take his place in his family. Shenanigans ensue and while they are away and they must fix things before they need the tour. I recommend this for anyone that wants a fun Historical Fiction with some representation as Monty and Percy are a couple, and Felicity is Ace.
6- The Lady’s Guide to Petticoats and Piracy (Montague Siblings # 2) by
This is the sequel to the book above. I adore Felicity as a character. This novel has some mixed reviews, but I enjoyed it. I thought the story took some odd twists, but I thought it worked well for the story that was being told. The plot involves Pirates and an old friend of Felicity. This book was an adventure, and I was so here for it.
7- Enchantee by Gita Trelease
I read this book earlier this year. The plot follows Camille, a young woman in France who has lost her parents, and must look after her sister. Her brother is a gambler who is spending the money that Camille and her sister Sophie need. This Historical Fiction has a magical twist because Camille transforms and into someone else so she can visit Versailles. The story was great and there is a cute romance. The pacing of the story was
8- The Prince and the Dressmaker by Jen Wang
This a sweet Graphic Novel I read a few weeks ago. The story follows Sebastian and Frances, two characters that were so easy to love and get to know. The story sets in France and I love stories set in France. The story is fantastic, and the art is so cute. I recommend this for anyone who wants a different take on Historical Fiction.
9- Hamilton and Peggy-A Revolutionary Friendship by L. M. Elliott
I read this novel last year. I enjoyed as a fan of Hamilton and Peggy. The story follows Peggy as the lead, and this was very refreshing as the other series I enjoyed had enjoyed Eliza was the main lead. The story follows Peggy and how she helps with the war efforts, and her siblings relationships. I recommend this for any fan of Hamilton who would enjoy a new take with the characters.
10- All For One (Alex & Eliza # 3) by Melissa de la Cruz
This is the final book in the Alex and Eliza trilogy! I read it back in April and early May and I really enjoyed it. We get introduced to new characters, and these new characters are the comic relief you need when the drama. This book also brought us the Maria Reynolds affair, and I really liked the hearing about what happened with her and Alex. The rest of the characters are there, but it is mainly about the new characters, and the Maria affair. I recommend this trilogy for any Hamilton fans.
