I haven’t read too many books with a historical setting, though when I have, I’ve enjoyed them. And there’s so many different settings available, even if the history is sometimes twisted. I have a few settings I really enjoy but my favourite:
The Old West like in Under a Painted Sky by Stacey Lee. It’s a time period the teachers never really touched upon at school but I love learning about it. It was a dangerous time in ways that are so different from the dangers we see today. My favourite movie is a western, my favourite TV show was a western, and with a few books coming out set in this time period this year, maybe my book of the year will be a western.
