TTT #57: Books To Read If You Are In The Mood to Travel Back in Time

I loved having a little bit of wiggle room with this week's topic, but it also made it hard for me to decide which genre to write about. I debated between focusing on magic or swoons, but I decided to go with something completely different, books that take you back in time.

Historical Fiction I have Read and Loved

1. A Madness So Discreet by Mindy McGinnis
2. A Mad, Wicked Folly by Sharon Biggs Waller
3. These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker & Kelly Zekas
4. The Diviners by Libba Bray
5. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

Historical Fiction I Can't Wait to Read

1. The Hired Girl by Laura Amy Schlitz
2. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys
3. Out of Darkness by Ashley Hope PĂ©rez
4. Black Dove, White Raven by Elizabeth Wein
5. Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon


  1. I've been wanting to read more historical fiction lately! I generally prefer it when there's some kind of magical/paranormal element to it. I think The Diviners will be right up my alley. I even own it but just haven't gotten to it yet! I loved A Madness So Discreet as well.

    1. Both are amazing and dark reads! I vote that you give them a try. :D

  2. Historical fiction + YA + fantasy is my absolute FAVOURITE combination!! May I suggest Diviners #2 (Lair of Dreams) as well as In the Shadow of Blackbirds by Cat Winters? We should be goodreads pals for sure! Here's My TTT

    1. I still can't believe I haven't rad Lair of Dreams yet! I did the audiobook form of The Diviners and loved it!

  3. I am so excited to find time to read Salt to the Sea! And I need to read Code Name Verity!

    I am so glad to see you loved A Madness So Discreet! And YES! A Mad, Wicked Folly was such a good one!!!

    1. Me too! I think Salt to the Sea is going to be oh so very good.

      A Madness So Discreet was different and dark and wonderful!
