Happy Tuesday, reader friends! I’m linking up with That Artsy Reader Girl again for Top Ten Tuesday & the topic this week is: “Books From My Favorite Genre.” Well, I couldn’t possibly pick a favorite genre so let’s improvise!
My first love will always be historical (especially with romance) but even then I find it impossible to narrow this list down to only ten books… I love giving a big enthusiastic shoutout to some of my favorite authors, maybe that would work!
Well, that list was also way too long… so we’re focusing on authors who use my favorite settings within my first love genre! Here they are (in alphabetical order because I certainly couldn’t rank or rate them, I love them all!):
authors of my favorite genre & setting
historical fiction with a frontier, homestead, and/or mountain setting
If you’re a fan of Christy by Catherine Marshall, this is a must-read! I’m a huge fan of Basham’s stories from any time and place!
Her masterful storytelling and vivid details of Native American culture and frontier living captivate me every time!
Regardless of the time period, her stories work wonders within my reader heart!
Her one of a kind sense of humor and witty banter always entertains me.
She’s not afraid to make good use of caves or tree trunks in her beautifully researched stories!
April W. Gardner
The stories of her epic Creek Country Saga should be savored!
It’s hard to go wrong with a handsome bearded mountain man hero but Griep does everything right!
Envisioning places and communities in their early days through the pages of Green’s stories never gets old.
I’m beside myself with anticipation for the next book in this series, it put the Natchez Trace on my bucket list of places to visit!
I’ve only read one book by this author but she brought everything I adore about frontier mountain stories to life so beautifully that I knew she had to be on this list! I am looking forward to her next release!
Is there a genre or setting that makes your reader heart go pitter-patter?
Share your favorite genres and settings in the comments and tell me which authors you most enjoy as well!
