I love historical fiction, and there are certain time periods that will always convince me to pick up a book. I used to read tons of historical fiction but haven't been reading too much of it lately. I would love to read more of this genre this year because I really miss it.

This is my favorite historical setting to read. I find WWII so fascinating, and I especially love to read from the perspective of characters who are not American because that is not a perspective I am exposed to very often.
2. The Tudor Reign
Another of my favorite historical settings, I love the court drama and intrigue and beautiful fashions.
3. 1960's America
The 60's was a time of revolution and upheaval and it's fascinating to read about. I'm really hoping to get into some nonfiction about this time period this year.
I Loved: Everybody Sees the Ants
WWI has inspired some of the greatest poetry and literature in history, so I love reading literature written during and after the war as well as historical fiction novels set in the time of WWI.
I Loved: In the Shadow of Blackbirds
5. Victorian London
I will always love Victorian London. It's a Romantic and perfect setting for a sweeping and all-consuming story, particularly stories with a mystery element.
6. Georgian Era London (Jane Austen's time)
This era is so comforting for me to read from, if it's done well, it is such an interesting time in social history for England.
7. 1920's America
The 20's have a lot of really great female power; women were granted the right to vote and the flappers were rocking their short hair and short dresses.
