Top Ten Tuesday- Books to read if you love Historical Fiction



Hello! Welcome back to Top Ten Tuesday. Jana hosts Top Ten Tuesday @thatartsyreadergirl. This weekly meme was brought on by a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. Each week, Jana will post a prompt, and we readers will write a response to the prompt. We also have the option of doing our own thing if we’re not feeling inspired by the prompt that week. This week, our prompt is Books to Read If You Love/Loved X (X can be a genre, specific book, author, movie/TV show, etc.) I wanted to use Historical Fiction, because like YA Contemporary, it’s a go-to genre for me. I separated the books by sub-genre for easy access.

  3. I love historical fiction, but I've only read two of these. Most of the others are on my TBR list somewhere. I'll get to them one of these days! Great list.

  5. Great list! I've been meaning to read more Sepetys books because I read Between Shades of Grey a few years ago by her and it was stunning. Heartbreaking but so beautifully written! I absolutely love TJR's books and always recommend Evelyn Hugo šŸ˜ And I can't wait to eventually try Chanel Cleeton's books!

The Sunday Post!

Welcome back! Today I am taking part in the weekly memes  The Sunday Post hosted by caffeinatedbookreviewer and Stacking The Shelves hosted by .tyngasreviews . I have had a great time coming up with the updates for these posts in the last few weeks and so I will keep doing them. Life This week was crazy for me because I had a a work blog due. While I enjoyed doing the post, it was more research than I had allotted for, so I just needed to spend more time on the blog than normal. Other than that it was an easy week. I got some read in and I got a new chapter up for my fanfic. Yesterday, we spent a lot of time in the backyard and shoveling stone for the yard. Read I just finished China Rich Girlfriend earlier today! All For One Alex &Eliza #3 is still so much fun and I think it is my favorite book of the trilogy still. Currently, I am on page 184/391 I read some The Princess and the Fangirl and I am 50% done. Rather than pushing it for the next few days, I decided to ju

 Hi! Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa  @wishfulendings . This meme is an offshoot of Waiting on Wednesday, which was hosted by  Jill@breakingthespine . The purpose of the meme is to feature books, usually unpublished, that we can't wait to read. This week, I'm featuring Confessions of a Curious Bookseller by Elizabeth Green.

Top Ten Tuesday –Favorite Couples (Valentine’s Day /Love Freebie)

  Hi! Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by Jana @ thatartsyreadergirl. . This meme was born out of a love of lists and bringing the book blogging community together. I love doing this meme because it gives me a chance to bond with other bloggers. Every week, Jana will post a topic, and we bloggers will make a post with our list on the topic, or a different one. This week it was Valentines / Love, so I wanted to do a post on favorite couples. I may have done a similar post last year, but I know that there are some new couples on this list.  1- Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy- Pride & Prejudice   This is the only classic couple on this list. I enjoy their relationship because the two characters have little in common, and yet by the end of the novel, they make it work. As you read Pride & Prejudice, you get to see these two find the love each of them was missing. 2- Cath and Levi–Fangirl One of my favorite YA novels needed to appear on this list. I love Cath and Levi because they balanc
