Top Ten Tuesday: Top Historical Settings

*Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish*

I love historical fiction!  Love it  And I’m a sucker for the following time periods:

Tudor England (ca 1485-1603)– I blame Phillipa Gregory and Johnathan Rhys Meyers’ portrayal of Henry VIII.

Medieval/Middle Ages (ca 1000-1500)Catherine Called Birdy by Karen Cushman.  Read it or we can’t be friends.

Italian Renaissance (ca 1300-1600)- So many things happening during this time!

Early 20th Century– Samantha from the American Girls series and Downton Abbey FTW.

Aaaannnndddd I didn’t hit a list of 10.  Oh well!

What are your favorite time periods to read about?

    Samantha is my absolute favorite American Girl! I’m convinced her stories have lead to a lifelong fascination with that era.

    My favorite historical period is “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.” 🙂
