Happy Tuesday 🙂 I hope you are all having a wonderful day!
This weekend was just a long weekend for me (Labour Day) and I can say that I feel I need a few more days… or maybe weeks? Lol I am just so over working and want to relax and have no worries.
BUT the good news is, I am going on a little mini vaca next week! Me and my BF are jumping on the ferry and heading to Vancouver Island for a couple days. We are so excited to just be away from home and have some time off work!!!! Literally so excited!
Anyways, that’s my little life update but lets get to why you are here which is HISTORICAL FICTION!
If you are like me, you love some historical fiction. I find that I always talk about this genre and have a million books on my tbr but when it actually comes to reading them I don’t get to them as much as Id like to!
So I figured if I could narrow it down to a smaller list then I could actually work towards reading them. Crazy idea right?? Lets see if it actually helps me lol if nothing else here is a list of some historical fictions I really want to read!
The Jane Austen Society by Natalie Jenner
A group of people from very different walks of life come together to save Jane Austen’s legacy. It is supposed to be a very heartwarming story and is set just after WW2!
The Alice Network by Kate Quinn
A female spy is recruited to the real life Alice Network in France during WW1. An American socialite is searching for her cousin in 1947. These two women are brought together to go on a mission to truth finding, both for their own reasons and will do whatever it takes to get it.
The Atomic City Girls by Janet Beard
A story about everyday women who worked on the Manhattan Project during WW2. The project is never explained to the women and they don’t know exactly what they are working on. When the bombing of Hiroshima brings the truth of the project, the women have to confront their ideals about loyalty, patriotism, and war.
All the Flowers in Paris by Sarah Jio
Two women connected across time by the city of Paris, a journal, and a lot of secrets. Caroline wakes up in a Paris hospital with no memories. Slowly she regains pieces of her life and comes across a mystery from decades prior. Celine lives in Nazi-occupied Paris and ends up being a mistress for a German officer in order to keep her family safe. These stories intersect when Caroline finds Celine’s diary tucked away in her apartment.
These are just 4 from a list of many! Maybe I will do another post like this once I actually read some of the historical fictions I have listed here!! Keep myself accountable!
Ill leave a couple historical fictions I have read and enjoyed as well, just in case you need some more to read!
📖 The Book of Lost Names by Kristin Harmel
