Welcome to a special new year’s edition of Friday Fic Picks! It seems like everyone is posting their favorites lists: favorite movies, music, television shows, celebrities, hairstyles … you name it, there’s probably a list for it. Books are no exception. My writing communities have been posting their top ten, so I figured I should probably jump on the bandwagon before it drove off and left me.
So, here are my top 10 historical fiction reads from 2018, listed in alphabetical order by author’s last name because I used to be a librarian, and I also don’t want to pick favorites out of my favorites. They’re all worth reading! Click on each title for my full review and please note that not all of these were published this past year.
After you’ve looked over my Top 10, let me know yours. Maybe I’ll add them to my reading challenge for this coming year.
Keturah by Lisa T. Bergren
Saving Amelie by Cathy Gohlke
The Love Letter by Rachel Hauck
The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck
The Daughters of Boston and Winds of Change series by Julie Lessman
Technically this is 7 books and 2 novellas (with a third recently released), but I read them all at once so they’re being counted as one.
Destiny of the Republic by Candice Millard
The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy
The Glass Ocean by Beatriz Williams, Lauren Willig, and Karen White
Stealing Mr. Smith by Tanya E. Williams
Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate
