MR: Historical Fiction

Hello everyone and welcome back to Monthly Recommendations, a challenge created on Goodreads to share and recommend books based on different topics. This month is historical fiction so that can be books based on real historical events, alternate universes, historical romance etc…

As I have quite a number of books, I’m not going to describe them but hopefully the photos should link to each of their Goodreads synopses:

I know I’ve done this post slightly differently than normal but the one thing that I do know is that most of these books leave a lot of themselves behind. They’re also very popular in other ways as some of them have TV series, films, and even theatre productions.

I really like historical fiction books so if you have any recommendations, especially any set during the Victorian era, please leave them in the comments!

Have you read any of these?
What did you think?

Thanks for reading and have a good day!

  1. Wow, i did not know there are books about Murdoch. Loved the series, all seasons, now i need to check the books. I have not read the rest of the books you mentioned though(((


    1. The tv series is one of my favourites. The books however are vastly different to the show, although I think in the first season they do an episode based on Let Loose the Dogs (the one where we come across Murdoch’s father for the first time?). They’re a lot grittier and the characters are considerably different, though a couple of familiar names from the first/second series do crop up in the earlier books. I do still love both of them and am glad that they’re separate entities.
