Love this? Share it!

Historical fiction is by far my favorite book genre; specifically, romantic things happening to rich British people during a time of war, but I digress. What I love about historical fiction is that it can be a great jumping off point to learn more about a specific time or place. I read the Molly American Girl books when I was a kid and I’ve been obsessed with reading about World War II ever since.

Author I Love: Elizabeth Wein

Elizabeth Wein writes wonderful historical fiction. She also loves to put a female protagonist into the kinds of stories that we have usually only heard from a male perspective. My favorite book of hers is Code Name Verity which tells the story of two friends serving in WWII, one as a pilot and the other working in intelligence. This is not a book you want spoilers for so just read it!!!

Warning: This book will give you major feelings, and you will not want to put it down. Also do NOT read Rose Under Fire first because while it’s not a sequel they do share a few characters and you would be majorly spoiled.

Her new book Black Dove White Raven is a departure from what she normally writes but it is also fascinating and had me researching Ethiopia after I’d only read a few pages.
