One of the things I’ve been trying to do a lot of since starting this blog is check out other awesome book review blogs and get involved in some of the weekly challenges and prompts they use.
Today I’m going to be taking part in the Book Blogger Hop! This is currently active over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer and bloggers all over the sphere get involved to answer the prompt, visit some of the other responses, and make new connections!
This week’s prompt comes from Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer and they asked: “Do you read historical fiction?“
And my answer is: Yeah, I do!
Historical Fiction isn’t my most read genre, as I tend toward Sci-Fi/Fantasy, but I still really enjoy it.
I love when the two genres crossover, especially. The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon is one of my particular favorites. I’ll be with this one until the end and definitely recommend if this genre-fusion interests you. Je suis prest.
I’ve had good luck in Adult and YA fiction too! Code Name Verity, a YA historical fiction novel set in WWII, is one of my favorite books that I never miss an opportunity to recommend or talk about. That book made me feel impossible joy and deep sadness, all while making me appreciate what it means to be human. WOAH, I know I just got really deep on y’all for a second, but that’s just how much I love that book. Go read it!
