Recommend and Request!

Comment on this post to give recommendations and requests for reviews, and I will do my best to fulfill them. I'm looking for books, movies, and television with a distinct Historical (fiction or non) bent that you think people should know about.

This post will remain active and you can find it along the right-hand side of the blog when you would like to go back and add to it.


  1. Hi, I just dropped by, via book blogs. Personally I am looking forward to reading Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantell, a novel with a tudor setting. I guess the turn of the century counts as historical, the most urgent book on my TBR is AS Byatt's The childrens Book, which is set at the end of the 18th and begining of the 19th centuary. My personal favourite historical novel is Sharon Penman's The Sunne in Splendour, the war of the roses makes for fascinating material. Happy reading and blogging.

  2. I will definitely have to get Wolf Hall when it comes out (I just checked and Amazon says October). I absolutely loved her French Revolution book, A Place of Greater Safety.
