Historical Fictions, why are they so amazing one may never know. Here are some amazing historical fictions!
I’ve really been forward to this specific post! There’s a certain something I love about historical fictions! They take you back in time to a different place, something you didn’t live through. While a lot of historical fictions are sad, a lot can also be uplifting.
DISCLAIMER: All opinions are my own so I hope they don’t upset y’all!
1. “Between Shades of Grey” by Ruta Sepetys
There’s not much I can say about this without getting emotional. This novel tore my heart to pieces, it has so many elements of love and family! The mother is my favorite character and I CANNOT recommend this novel anymore!
For more information, the review I wrote can be found here!
2. “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak
I enjoyed this novel a lot, the only thing I HATED about this novel, the beginning was exhaustingly slow but once you get past maybe the first hundred pages it’s amazing! I thought that the opening was beautifully written with why the novel has the name it has. I strongly recommend this novel!
3. “Anna and the Swallow Man” by Gavriel Savit
THE SYMBOLISM THOUGH. The symbolism in this novel was amazing. It was a quick read that I could NOT put down! Anna may know that the swallow man isn’t her father, they both still have an amazing parental connection. This novel is a read I really recommend!
4. “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas” by John Boyne
The premise of this novel was what I loved, it was sad but beautiful. The friendship between Bruno and a child on the other side of the mysterious fence. This novel shows the true travesty of World War 2 and I loved Boyne’s interpretation of this heartfelt novel!
5. “Code Name Verity” by Elizabeth Wein
I had absolutely no intention of putting this novel on the list yet by a turn of events, here we are! I personally didn’t love the beginning of the novel but it progresses into something intriguing. I loved the aspect of spies and friendship! While this isn’t my favorite WW2 novel, it’s still a great book to read!
Thank you for reading! Have an amazingly good day!
