While I respect non-fiction. I'm a big lover of fiction books. As I find less and less time to read, I realize that time spent reading should probably be spenT reading something with an additional ”value”. So I look for and read books on history. While sometimes dry, they are filled with many amazing wow moments, and fascinating facts. That being said, I find myself working to turn each page as I don’t always have an immediate draw (character development/plot twist) to read the next chapter.
Thus, my passion for the genre of historical fiction developed! Fictional characters and their stories, set in the back drop of real historical events in real places (though any mix of real and made-up can be a historical fiction). These books are often very well researched, and take great pride in getting the little details of the time correct.
So what are my TOP 3 PICKS!
