Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the Broke and The Bookish Here 😀!
This week, Angelina and I travel back in time, sort of XD. We are sharing Historical Fiction ideas we would LOOOOOVE to see more of in books. Let’s be real, we need more historical fiction from around the world :).
Not to sound harsh, but there are countless Historical Fiction books set in Europe, even in “World History” almost all of the focus is on Europe’s history. It would be nice to see some Historical Fiction not set in Europe. Plus Samurai and the oh so interesting Japanese mythology would make a really cool mix for a story about Feudal Japan… 🙂
2. Ancient India!
GOSH. I would LOVE to learn more about India’s history, I would LOVE to visit India one day as well…
I’ve noticed a lack of characters in YA who have religion, not just Christianity but there aren’t many main characters who are of Islamic faith or any other religion. It would be nice to see more of that, and a historical fiction set around the time Jesus was alive would be INCREDIBLY interesting. I would love to read more about that for sure! NOTE: I WOULD ALSO CRY OUT OF HAPPINESS FOR A BOOK LIKE THIS 😀
Egyyyyyyyyypt. Where are all of our books about Egypt? I WOULD LITERALLY CRY OUT OF PURE HAPPINESS IF YA GOT A BOOK ABOUT CLEOPATRA, or just Egypt in general. GUYS. We need this. WE NEED THIS!
Africa in general. Out of all the things we studied in “World History” we learned NOTHING about Africa. Yes we learned some things about Japan’s enlightenment period but at least we learned that. Africa? We learned nothing. The culture there is so interesting, the history? I would be ECSTATIC for a YA book about Africa’s history.
IRELLLLLLLLLLLAND has some cool but also creepy legends. Let’s do this people!
Russian culture is so interesting. WE NEED MORE *slams fist on table*
I LOVE JAPAN! I love their culture, their anime, video games, temples, shrines, I WANT MORE! I’m even learning Japanese (3rd year!) I want more there, I want to BE there RIGHT NOW.
9. New Zealand
Why New Zealand? Simple. It looks beautiful and TONS of great movies were filmed there, so it’s got to be a good place, right? Well..according to Bing The Hobbit, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Lovely Bones, and Bridge to Terabithia were all filmed in New Zealand 🙂
10. USA IN THE FUTURE! 😀
Why the land of the free? Why the future? Well, I’d love to know what this country is headed for. What futuristic inventions are to come?
