You know what genre I love that I didn’t know I loved? Historical Fiction. I’ve read a several gems here and there over the last year (hello Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, and the Nightingale, ) I am absolutely loving this genre. I get to read, always a win, and at the same time learn a little more about actual events and people. I’m in. Even better, I usually am so intrigued by the book, that I go and google it to find out more about whatever historical event was taking place, to discover more about it, and what was real vs what was imagined by the author. So, if you like historical fiction, PLEASE comment and leave us the title and author of your favorite -or at the very least, since most favorite can feel intimidating- your most recent favorite? We would love to read it !!
My recent favorite is:
Lisa See’s The Island of Sea Women. You guys, it is SO good. It is a story of friendship, amazing women divers that really existed off this island called JeJu, and the crazy difficult things they lived through.
