This week the theme is all about books that take place in the past or in the future. I'm not going to lie, I'm not a big historical fiction reader. I like some, but I'm usually a girl that loves her in the present and right now books, or books that take place in a whole other world. I also got tired of the dystopian type books pretty quickly. I have my favorites, but they just became overdone.
I guess, I'm trying to point out that my choices aren't going to be something new and amazing. I'm going to spotlight 5 historical books and 5 futuristic books, but I'm sorry now for the boring choices this week.
5 in the past
1. Outlander - I know this one is cliche, but I loved this book. The tv show is good too, but the book is phenomenal. I kept putting it off becasue I knew I wouldn't like it... and I was wrong.
2. Passenger - So this one travels all throughout history. I loved this book. If you haven't read it yet, you need to Bracken did so much esearch on the historical aspects. You can tell that she really respects history.
3. A Company of Swans - I read this a LONG time ago. I think Iwas still in high school.. so it's been awhile. I know I loved it though because it's one of my books I've carried across country 4 times now.
4. Annie's Song - Probably one of my favorite books. This is such a beautiful story. It's just, the sweetest. If you haven't read it, you need to.
5. A Kingdom of Dreams - So, one of the few historical books I do read a lot of is highlander books. I don't know why, but I love them. I chose my absolute favorite... I think I featured it last week too. It's just phenomenal.
5 in the future
7. The Hunger Games - This is as cliche as it gets. But, I love this series... so there it is for you.
8. The Selection - I enjoyed this series. Is it really silly and frivolous? yes! Do I secretly adore the bachelor on tv too? Yes. This is just such a fun more lighthearted dystopian series. You don't see that often.
9. The Winner's Curse - This one doesn't really count, but I had to stretch. I just reaad this series a few months ago. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. It really drew me in.
10. Red Queen - Another one that doesn't really count, but could. I loved this book. I'm hearig mixed things on the 2nd book, but I'm really hopeful. Plus that beautiful cover is enough to make anyone gaga!
So there you go.. I did my best. Honestly, I could have featured a bunch of kid books. I loved historical fiction as a child... it's actually really surprising I tend to avoid it now.
