So I have decided to start reading more historical fiction from today. I have read some in the past that I really enjoyed. I think that Celia Rees and Mary Hooper write good historical fiction, especially the books Pirates! by Celia Rees and Fallen Grace by Mary Hooper.
I'm currently reading a book called Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly. I would say its part young adult/contemporary fiction, and part historical fiction. It's pretty good so far.
