Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Historical Fiction Novels on my TBR (Freebie!)

I have a large amount of historical fiction novels on my TBR right now, and I'm really itching to get to ALL of them. Since I can't read them all at the same time, I thought I would ask you guys which ones you've enjoyed and which ones I should get to first. And this is just a sampling of the historical fiction I have on my TBR! 
*Book Titles Link to Goodreads*

 

I've heard lots about this one! It sounds emotional and moving, and I love the unique setting.

I'm SO excited for this one! I'm down for any book with suffragettes and mystery,

3. The American Heiress, Daisy Goodwin 
I've heard this is great for Downton Abbey withdrawals; I'm a huge fan of the show and I love the atmosphere of British royalty historical fiction novels! 


This love saga is a trilogy set in Russia, and it looks so emotional! I'm thinking this one will suck me right into 1940's Russia and won't spit me back out until I've finished it.

Code Name Verity  was beautiful and heartbreaking, and I'm thinking the companion novel will break my heart even more! I loved the girl power in Code Name, and I know that will continue in Rose.

6. Black Dove, White Raven, Elizabeth Wein
Wein has become an auto-buy author for me, so of course her newest release is a high priority on my TBR!



This new release has been getting a lot of positive buzz, and it sounds so different from any other YA I have read. Plus, I love that cover!

This has become a modern classic in the historical fiction world, and I have owned if for years! I really want to get to it so I can watch the movie, because I love Kiera Knightly!

9. In the Shadows of Blackbirds, Cat Winters
I loved The Cure For Dreaming by Cat Winters, and I have been meaning to pick up for first novel forever now. I love how she mixes photography in with her stories.


10. City of Women, David R. Gillham
This WWII novel promises some great female characters, which I always love to see in historical fiction.

Have you read any of these? Which one should I start ASAP?

  1. I adore historical fiction. The Bronze Horseman is amazing! A long read, but well worth it. I really enjoyed Burial Rites too. :-)

  3. Great topic, Mallory, and great list, too! I've only read Burial Rites on your list but I absolutely loved it, so I recommend checking that one out soon - thanks to its setting it's a really good winter read, I think. :) I also want to check out The Hourglass Factory soon, it's been waiting on my shelf long enough, and I will get to Code Name Verity this year! I'm determined!

    1. I have too! I'm nervous about Rose because I know it will be a difficult read.

  6. Hmm, well I've read two of these. Burial Rites was good but I found it a bit uneven (I think it was the author's first novel.) Rose Under Fire though--that book hurt. Like, physical pain. It was incredibly good, but it was also really, really difficult to read.

    1. I'm nervous for Rose because I think it is going to be even more difficult to get through than Code Name was, but I know it will be worth it.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Haven't read any of these books. I'm not much of a fan of historical, but I've been eyeing Vengeance Road for a while... I'm still debating whether I should pick it up or not. Let me know when you read it and feel free to drop a link if you review it, it would be great to know what you thought of it.

    Thanks for stopping by!
