7 Books For The Dystopian Fan

Hello readers, I have another Bookish Lists post today!

7 Favorite Historical Retellings

Hello readers, I have another Bookish Lists post today! Historical fiction novels feature quite often here on my blog, but I’ve noticed that, in YA atleast, the label seems to be becoming an increasingly vague one, stretching to include everything from adding fantasy aspects to sometimes nothing more than a hint of a historical setting. I like my historical fiction novels to be as accurate and feel as authentic to the era as possible, so I find it very annoying when I pick up something labelled ‘historical fiction’ and run into demons, magic or a variety of other things that certainly did not exist in said era (or ever, really). That’s why I started keeping a separate list I classify as historical retellings, for any books that present a modified take on the story, whether it’s introducing a fictional or fantastical aspect into the tale, or perhaps a narrative more akin to fairytale retellings – and there are some pretty amazing ones out there. Today, I’m sharing 7 of my favourites from this list!
