Today, I will be doing the Ancient History tag. Thank you to the lovely Erika @ And On She Reads for tagging me! If you haven’t already, check out her wonderful blog and give her a follow!
The Stone Age – one of the first books you remember reading
Vampirates: Demons of the Ocean by Justin Somper. This is still one of my all time favourite books too.
Ancient Greece – your favourite myth-inspired book (doesn’t have to be Greek mythology) or retelling
I’ve not read a huge amount of retellings/mythology inspired books, but I loved Circe by Madeline Miller.
The Roman Empire – a book featuring an impressive empire or kingdom
The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. There are so many kingdoms in this story, that are all equally as impressive! Tolkien’s world building is incredible.
The Middle Ages – a book that is an absolute bummer
I don’t really read books that make me super sad, so I don’t have an answer for this…
The Renaissance – a book that you’ve learned a lot form, or that made you think
As most of you know, Van Gogh is one of my biggest inspirations, so naturally I have a lot of knowledge about him, but Van Gogh’s Ear by Bernadette Murphy taught me so much more than I already knew, especially the time surrounding the incident of him cutting off part of his own ear. This book is a fascinating read!
The Industrial revolution – a book featuring an invention or concept that you would have in your own life
This is a really tough questions, and I can’t actually think of an answer right now!
World War I & II – your favourite historical fiction book about the World Wars (or if you don’t have one, your favourite historical fiction in general)
It has to be The Photographer of the Lost by Caroline Scott. This book is absolutely fantastic. I’m a huge fan of historical fiction about the World Wars, but this is better than any other that I’ve ever read.
Present day – a book everybody should read in present day according to you
Oh there are so many! There are also multiple subject matters to choose from that I think are equally as important.
