Historical Events I Would LOVE to Read About in Books!

February 2, 2016 Top Ten Tuesday 9

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.
Each week they release a Top Ten Theme and invite everyone to join in and make their own Top Ten List.

So I don’t really read historical fiction … like ever. But there are some historical events that even I have to admit would make really good backdrops to a story. I only managed 5, but for someone who doesn’t read historical fiction, I think I did pretty good!

Such a devastating event in history but I think it would make for such a powerful story. I really love the film based on Pearl Harbour and I feel like the amount of extra emotion that a book would give us would make for an incredible read.

It’s all legend so probably not true, but I really love the whole King Arthur period of time. I would love stories about his Knights of the Round table too, I can imagine they’re just like a big brotherhood.

Another totally devastating moment in history that has such a powerful story to tell. There were over 3000 people on that ship, that means a lot of stories to tell. I would love a story set on the titanic from multiple POV.

Just like King Arthur I LOVE stories about Robin Hood. I would love to read a book about him and his gang of outlaws who rob from the rich and give to the poor.

I know that it’s considered Greek Mythology so it probably isn’t actually real, but I would love some stories about people who were around in the time of the battle of troy.

Which settings did you choose this week? History or Futuristic?

What do you think of my choices? Would you be interested in reading a book based in these settings too?

    You’ve picked so many amazing historical settings! I’d love to read more books about these events too. I’d especially love some King Arthur books or Titanic books…. YES! I need those in my life.

    Here’s my TTT post if you want to check it out.

      Haha, I would LOVE King Arthur books, but in the same style as the BBC TV series Merlin, which was all about the relationship between Merlin and Arthur and was really funny.

      I’ve not been able to find any good Robin Hood books yet, I’ve read a few but they always seem to disappoint. Have you got any recs? Thanks for stopping by 🙂

      Yes! There are just so many stories to be told from the Titanic. It would be emotional but so so good!
