I really love historical fiction, especially when it’s focused on a mystery – what I like to call, Mystorical Fiction – but I haven’t actually read that many of these type of books. I have loads on my TBR, however, so here’s a list of 6 books I’m really excited to read… at some point…
Burial Rites by Hannah Kent – I read The Good People by this author last year and I really enjoyed it! I bought this book with some Waterstone’s vouchers in 2017 so it’s really about time I picked it up, and with all it’s amazing reviews, it seems like a good kind of book to pick up in 2019 with my goal of reading “quality over quantity”.
The Muse by Jessie Burton – this is another one of those books where I have read the previous authors book… In this case, The Miniaturist, which was a 5 star read for me. I bought this novel back when it came out in 2016 so it’s another of those books I really need to get around to reading!
The Binding by Bridget Collins – I’ve seen this book all over the blogosphere recently, it sounds really good! I love the cold, autumnal cover. The plot sounds immense and totally unique!
The Glovemaker by Ann Weisgarber – this is another book that sounds really different to other books I’ve read in this genre & I love love love the cover!
Mr Peacock’s Possessions by Lydia Syson – I won this on Reader’s First last year and I really need to get around to reading it! I love how eerie it sounds and the reviews for it are great so that gives me hope that will be an enjoyable read.
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles – this is set in 1922, does this count as historical fiction? It’s on the Goodreads Popular Historical Fiction list! Anyway, I received this in a book swap I participated in last year and it’s been on my radar for ages so I hope it’s good!
So there we have it! Those are a select few Historical Fiction novels I really want to read. There are loads more on my Goodreads shelves, so maybe I’ll do a part 2 of this post!
Have you read any of these, what did you think? Are there any historical fiction novels you want read?
