Top Ten Tuesday: Why I Love Historical Fiction

Hostess
I forgot to do this topic last week, so here I am, on time as usual haha!

1. The setting. Historical fiction is truly a chance to travel the world. A lot of my favorites actually take place in California/other pretty famous locations in the US, but each author points out incredibly new things to learn, so no setting really gets boring!
2. The culture. Most historical fiction novels are so rich in diversity. Plus, each ethnic culture comes with their own cuisine, so that's fun XD.
3. The perspectives. Getting to view the past through a lens of someone living through it is exciting!
4. The outfits + activities. Wild tea parties. Carriage rides. Victorian gowns. Me like.

Some of my favorites include:

  3. I did my list last week on Historical Fiction as well. It's such a broad genre though. We don't have any books on our lists in common, and I haven't even read any of them.
