Welcome back, reader friends! I hope y’all had a blessed Christmas and maybe some books under your tree?! Do tell! We’re launching into day 3 of our year-end celebration so click here if you missed one of the earlier posts!
Genres, time periods, settings… we love them all! SO, what kind of fictional experience are y’all in the mood for?! Not sure? Can’t decide? I’m here for you! We’re dedicating this final week of the year to the swoof files! Seven lists of ten books each categorized by swoof, my experience of the reads!
Let’s talk history! Historical fiction brings the past to life with rich detail and I love it! The lists of dates, names, and places mean next to nothing to me without the story behind them. These particular titles spark that itch to learn more about the historical facts and visit featured locations! Each of these books has been featured on Faithfully Bookish in 2017 so y’all can get the scoop by clicking the covers below for more about these lovely stories!
