Historical Fiction...any suggestions?

Monday, April 25, 2011

Hello Readers!

You may or may not know, but my full time job is teaching 5th graders, and this month, my genre focus in class is on Historical Fiction. I am pretty good at recommending titles, but since the book blogging community appeals to so many readers with SO many tastes, I thought I'd ask for suggestions. I'm trying to compile a list of books to suggest to my readers (who mostly read Middle Grade titles, but many can also tackle the YA books, too).


If you have any suggestions of great historical fictions titles to share with my students, I'd love for you to leave a comment with the title, author, and (if possible) the time period/topic.

Witch Child by Celia Rees is relly good. Its set in 1695 when the Puritans left England for the New World of America. She also has some other historical novels but I've only read this one.

There's a list at http://www.skokie.lib.il.us/s_teens/tn_books/tn_booklists/histfict.asp which might also help. It's got Philip Pullman's The Ruby in the Smoke which is set in Victorian London and is one of my favourite historical novels
