Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature created by brokeandbookish. This week’s topic is Top Ten Books To Read If Your Book Club Likes _______.
1.The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
It’s impossible for me to talk about Historical Fiction without talking about my favourite book, The Book Thief. It’s beautiful, and amazing, and I’ll always recommend it.You need to read it.
2.The Luxe by Anna Godbesern
This is kind of a guilty pleasure of mine. It’s set during the turn of the century, and it’s just basically a bunch of perspectives as they deal with their love lives. It’s extremely addictive and the characters are great.If you’re looking for a lighter historical fiction, this one is great.
3.The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult.
The Storyteller is about a baker named Sage who strikes up a friendship with this old man. As their friendship grows,the man asks Sage to kill him. Sage refuses but the man confesses that he was a Nazi officer. Faced with the moral dilemma, Sage begins to wonder if she has the right to kill him. Like any Picoult book, it’s an amazing book about the moral decisions we must make,with amazing characters and the classic twist.
4.And The Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini.
Hosseini is one of the the most talented authors I’ve ever read, and I think And The Mountains Echoed is my favourite.This book alternates between multiple perspectives over a long period of time, all around the world from Kabul to San Francisco. And The Mountains Echoed, is about family, love and loss that occur in so many different circumstances. It’s a beautiful story filled with a complex and intricate storyline, and unique and diverse characters.
5.The Lace Reader by Brumonia Barry
The Lace Reader is about a woman who can read the future in lace patterns. As she comes back to her hometown, she must face her tragic past. The setting of this story is very unique, and the whole story has a very whimsical air to it. This is another book where the plot twist will have you reeling.
6. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
This is about a german girl who’s very close to Adolf Hitler but then begins to think about how bad he is when she meets this journalist. It’s a really original perspective and just a+. I need to get my hands on the sequel.7
7.Code Name verity by Elizabeth Wein
Code Name Verity is about a female pilot and a female spy who become best friends. The story is soo good and the ending is really tragic. Elizabeth Wein is a fantastic author who really knows how to craft story.
