Top Ten Tuesday: Past and Future
Today's prompt from The Broke and the Bookish is sort of a two parter (well, I'm making it that way at least) and is all about the past and the future. Here are my two little lists:
Five Historical Settings I Love
1. Regency of course! Anything in this time period! What is about this era? I have no idea, but it's lovely to read about.
2. Also, anything from the medieval times or dark ages. You know, King Arthur type stuff. Love love love it. I think this era is fascinating just for the fact that people actually survived it.
3. I also enjoy stories sent during World War II because of the resilience of those people. Strong amazing characters all around.
4. Early American, especially western frontier type books featuring cowboys and Indians, though I haven't read a huge amount of these types, but when I do, I love it.
5. Stories from the British Tudor period are especially fun and fascinating too.
Five Futuristic Books I Love
1. These Broken Stars (and its trilogy). All the perfect elements of science fiction!
2. Through the Ever Night (and its trilogy). The pairing of a futuristic society with a rugged nomad society is fascinating.
3. Partials (and its trilogy). Set in the very near future, this one seems like it could totally happen.
4. Legend (and its trilogy). Ditto for this one.
5. The Sparrow. This book kills me. KILLS me.
Fun prompt this week! I know there's many more I could add to each list.
What's on your list?
