Historical Fiction Day!

Salutations! Welcome back to my blog!

Today is Historical Fiction Day!

Well actually I just made that day up and I have no idea whether such a day exists already.

Basically, I’m celebrating my Historical Fiction books as I don’t believe it’s been in my Favourite Genres list since I was 11 years old.

And also Historical Fiction is a great genre and deserves more love.

So that’s what Historical Fiction Day is here for.

And now I’m going to serenade you with my oh-so-magnificently-aesthetic photos of my Historical Fiction books.

P.s. I have really bad photography skills

Without further ado, leggo!

*Please note that this is a prescheduled post*

This Gorgeously Ginormous book is Gillespie and I by Jane Harris

Gillespie and I is a quaint little story, written from the perspective of this lady reminiscing about her friend Gillespie.

And that’s pretty much all I know about it because I haven’t read it yet.

Also this was a cover buy.


A Cornish Betrothal by Nicola Pryce

This lovely book was sent to me to review. You can find my review of this book here.

This is definitely due for a re-read though so I can fully digest and intake the story, hopefully without getting confused.

I, Coriander by Sally Gardner

I don’t think I’ve met a person yet who hasn’t read this book.

It follows from the perspective of a young girl called Coriander Hobie. And that’s all I remember as I read this when I was 11 years old.

The last hours by Minette Walters

I already read a few pages of this and I’m not really enjoying it so far. I don’t know why I thought it would be a great idea to buy a book about a plague outbreak in the middle of a pandemic. Great going, me!

Anywho, I will push on and try to finish this 500 page monster.

My story: the hunger by Carol Drinkwater

My story: Berlin Olympics by Vince Cross

I read this series when I was younger, i loved it. Time to see how my reading tastes have changed!

A horse called hero by Sam Angus

This is set during wartime and it’s about a horse.

Not quite my thing any more but I won’t knock it until I’ve tried it.

Moving on.

The secret of nightingale wood by Lucy Strange

I read this book a while ago and it was so good! It had me in tears! You can read my review about it here.

I actually forgot to include one more book! Its Just Henry by Michelle Magorian and it follows a boy named Henry who loves going to the movies and discover the truth about his father. It’s set in War times.

That’s all for my Leafpages Historical Fiction Day!

What are some of your favourite historical fiction books?

Until next time,


*I actually learnt the word Salutations when I was a child thanks to Charlotte’s Web. If you don’t know what that is, you should watch it. It will crush your soul 🙂

      1. Wow they all sound so interesting! I know all my friends reccomend the infernal devices to me but I haven’t read the mortal instruments yet so I’m worried i’d get confused.
        Elizabethan England seems to be quite glamerous in novels 😂😁
