I am a huge historical fiction and non-fiction fan. Like, I could read this one genre every day for the rest of my life and never feel as if I'm missing out on anything. I love to read, I love a good narrative, and I love to learn. So it just makes sense. As it would happen, the most common historical fiction to to be found out there, revolves around World War II. It's a heavy, well-explored topic that can never really be overdone, at least in my opinion (Michaela, on the other hand, hates it). But, I really love variety too, so I reached out to our Bookstagram friends and asked what else they knew about. I received an excellent feedback and compiled this list for your reading pleasure.

The Cove | Ron Rash

The Welsh Prince Trilogy | Sharon Kay Penman

The Franciscan Conspiracy | John Richard Sack

Shadow of a Century | Jean Grainger

The Glassblower | Petra Durst-Benning

Bohemian Gospel | Dana Chamblee Carpenter

The Five | Hallie Rubenhold

Are there any others you'd add to this list? Bonus points for middle grade or young adult I can buddy read with my kids.
