Historical fiction has always been one of my favorite genres of books. I've enjoyed it since I began reading and have always kept a steady diet of historical fiction novels. History is bemoaned by many as dull and hard to relate to. I've never thought of it that way. In fact, history has always been alive for me. Story after story that I never grow tired of hearing. Perhaps it's because I've always read historical fiction.
When you read a textbook, history seems far away and simply a collection of facts. Historical fiction on the other hand places you into a different world. No longer is Marie Antoinette a waxy, dead figure...she's a real person who thinks, feels, loves, and hates.
Here are a few of my favorite historical fiction novels:
