Five Fall Favorites: Historical Fiction

Right now, the wonderful Rebekah Morris is hosting Five Fall Favorites over at her blog, Read Another Page. I recommend you check it out because there are freebies, a huge giveaway, and lots of book recommendations. Can’t say I really need more books on my to-be-read pile, which is kind of glaring at me right now and becoming a mountain, but I really can’t help it!

I decided to share my Historical Fiction favorites that I have enjoyed discovering this year, and you may have seen my reviews for them over the course of the year. 😉

1. Shadows Over England by Roseanna M. White

I’ve read the first two books in the series so far (but I do have access to the third one in ebook form from my library), and they have been absolute gems! The characters are extremely lovable, and it’s set in the 1900s. Pretty much a little before WWI. I’m sorry, but who can resist reading something based in that timeline? This was the very first series I’ve read by Roseanna, and I have decided she is one of my top favorite authors of all time.

2. Beyond the Horizon by Jesseca Wheaton

I got the chance to review this novella earlier this year, and I just loved this. It’s a Cinderella retelling set in WWII. That is pretty much all it had to be for me to want to read it! You know what? Anything by Jesseca Wheaton is good, especially her Questions of War series.

3. A Daughter’s Inheritance by Tracie Peterson and Judith McCoy Miller

I started reading this when I was at my Grandparents house, the night I returned from summer camp to stay over at their house for a few days. I got to be honest, it really drew me in and I read it almost in a days worth before having to travel back home. Although I liked this, I’m not sure this would be the thing for everyone. Maybe a little slow and a bit flat at times, but the story just really makes up for it, at least to me. I’m looking forward to reading the next books that I borrowed from my Grandmother!

4. When Beauty Blooms by Victoria Lynn

When Beauty Blooms FINAL

This was the bomb. It’s about a woman who suffers with social anxiety, and Victoria handled it well! I think this a wonderful read that everyone would like because the character is so realistic, and the ending is so satisfying! So hard not to spoil!

5. The Sea Before Us by Sarah Sundin

This was my first time reading anything by Sarah Sundin, which I’m surprised about because I had heard so many good things about the author’s books, and it did not disappoint! This one is also set in WWII (uh, a trend here… anyone? 😉 ) and I really did enjoy it. It’s a romance that was written well, and completely draws you in, which makes you lose track of time. Once you are finished, you realize it’s somehow been the whole day. Yep, my special-and-very-rare experience.
