Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week's theme is Top Ten Book I'd Give to Readers Who Have Never Read X. My Top Ten is for readers who have never read historical fiction. Historical fiction is a new genre for me, and I've really fallen in love with it! I hope that those of you who haven't read a lot of historical fiction give it a try--here are some great ones to start out with! I also included the time frame of each book.
1. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows (WW2)
2. Moloka'i by Alan Brennert (early 1900's Hawaii--and one of my favorite books of all time)
3. The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grisson (late 1700s/early 1800's United States)
4. The Paris Wife by Paula McLain (1920's France, Europe)
5. The Painted Girls by Cathy Marie Buchanan (late 1800's Paris)
6. The Shoemaker's Wife by Adriana Trigiani (early 1900's, New York City)
7. The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman (Post-WW1 Australia)
8. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (WW2)
9. All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr (WW2)
10. City of Thieves by David Benioff (WW2)
