Top Ten Books I'd Recommend to Someone Who Doesn't Read Historical Fiction

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is:  Top Ten Books I'd Recommend to Someone Who Doesn't Read Historical Fiction (the genre was up to me)

I think these books would make someone who doesn't care for historical fiction change their mind about the genre.

1.) Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
2.) The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
3.) Innocent Traitor by Alison Weir-
4.) By Fire, By Water by Mitchell James Kaplan
5.) Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin
6.) Cleopatra's Daughter by Michelle Moran
7.) The Traitor's Wife by Susan Higginbotham
8.) The Jewel of St. Petersburg by Kate Furnivall
9.) Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith
10.) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

That's all I have!  Are they any you think I missed?

  1. I almost put The Bronze Horseman on my list of great historical fiction too. I love that book! I do have Outlander and The Book Thief on my list, great books.

  2. I read some historical fiction, but I sort of go through it by mood instead of reading it consistently. I have a couple of one the ones you listed already on my stacks, but I'm looking to add more. :D

  3. The Outlander has been on my shelf forever.
