Top Ten Tuesday, as always, is hosted at my other blog — The Broke & the Bookish
This week’s topic: Top Ten Historical Settings I Want To See in YA
Prior to starting my blog a good chunk of what I read was historical fiction. When it comes to adult historical fiction I can find almost anything in any time period I want…but when I started to get into YA I found it to be lacking compared to other genres. Luckily in the past couple years more and more YA historicals are coming out and THANK GOD because it is a genre I love.
So here are a list of historical settings I want to see more YA books set in!! I want them any way I can have them — straight up realistic historical fiction, historical romance, historical fantasy/supernaturally kind of stuff. Doesn’t matter. So if you have any YA recs that fit my setting, please leave them in the comments.
I mean, I know it probably wouldn’t be super historically in depth because limited knowledge but I want. Thank goodness for Ivory and Bone coming out! Maybe some dinosaurs toooo. I just want a more YA Clan of the Cave Bear which I tried to get into many years ago and couldn’t — though I plan to again. Some kickass fantasy in pre-historic times could be awesome.
