Top Ten Tuesday- Top Ten Historical Settings You Love

I love historical fiction (always have!) and these are some (keyword: some) of my favorite historical fiction I’ve read!  I’ve tried to include a diverse selection of books and a variety of time periods, but I will literally read about any time period.  I read all the American Girl books growing up (back then there were only 4 or 5 historical girls), loved the Little House books by Laura Ingalls Wilder and Anne of Green Gables is probably one of my all-time favorites!

  1. The Sign of the Beaver by Elizabeth George Speare (early 1700s)
  2. Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson (1793)
  3. Riding Freedom by Pam Munoz Ryan (mid 1800s)
  4. The Great Trouble: A Mystery of London, the Blue Death, and a Boy Called Eel by Deborah Hopkinson (1850s)
  5. The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick (early 1900s)
  6. Number the Stars by Lois Lowry (1943)
  7. Dead End in Norvelt by Jack Gantos (1962)
  8. One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia (1968)
  9. Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai (mid 1970s)
  10. A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park (1985)
