The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society
Water for Elephants
The Night Circus
The Nightingale
The Help
The Girl You Left Behind
Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption
The Color Purple
At the Water’s Edge
In Another Life

 Do you read historical fiction (or nonfiction)? What are your favorites?

  1. Ok, so I’m not really a big historical fiction reader (and by that I mean, I never read historical fiction!) but I have seen the film for The Help and absolutely LOVED it! I have also heard some amazing things about Water for Elephants.
    I’m feeling slightly inspired this week by all the historical fiction books, maybe I’ll give one a go at some point! 🙂 Happy reading!

  2. Historical Fiction is probably the genre I reach for the least, despite my love of history. However, I have read Water for Elephants and it was one of the few required readings in high school I actually enjoyed. I’ve also heard amazing things about The Night Circus so I’ve been thinking about picking it up lately.

  3. The Night Circus is such a wonderful book. I felt like I stepped into a fairy-tale when I read that book. So magical. I quite like the look of The Nightingale and I’ll definitely have to check it out. the Help is one book I am determined to tick off my to be read list this year. I loved the film and I am so excited to get my hands on the book. 😀

  4. At The Water’s Edge (cause Loch Ness monster LOL) and Water for Elephants are both books I was seriously looking at- I heard good things about Sara Gruen and thought the Elephants movie was pretty good. Historical fiction is an area I’ve come to really like as well. I never use to read it but in the last few years I’ve read some that I just loved. Good stuff.

    So many great choices! I’m a big fan of the genre and have noticed that a lot of my best books of 2015 are historical, so I’m definitely going to read as many as I can this year.

  6. THERE’S THE POTATO PEEL BOOK AGAIN. Good book, good book. I think we talked about this already, at least I remember talking about it!

    I really want to read The Nightingale really badly, and I have it on my kindle so I will get to it soon 🙂

    Awesome list Grace!!
