Top Ten Tuesday | Books Set in the Past

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish that other bloggers are welcome to join in, to create Top Ten lists on varying topics. This week it's Top Ten Books Set in X. I decided to do Top Ten Books Set in the Past

I was excited for this topic at first and then I had to pick books for it and I just got totally confused. I didn't know what to do but then I decided to share some books that have settings in the past. 

The Dark Unwinding

The Dark Unwinding is a historical fiction steampunk book, set in England. I am not sure which century it is meant to be set in but it is a story set in the past. 

The Clockwork Scarab

The Clockwork Scarab is a Sherlock Holmes retelling which is set in the 19th century. It is also set in England and is sort of steampunk because there are inventions that had not been invented yet. 


The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is set during the London Blitz when all the children in London are sent away to the countryside. 

 Love, Lies and Spies by Cindy Anstey

I really enjoyed this book. It was like a fun Jane Austen book set in London in the 18th century. 

The Falconer by Elizabeth May

The Falconer is also kind of a steampunk novel. It's set in Edinburg, 1844. It is such a good novel that has both fantasy elements and historical fiction elements. 

Palace of Spies by Sarah Zettel

I don't love this series. It was a pretty good book though. It is set in the time of King George 1. 

Camelot Burning by Kathryn Rose

This is a book that is set in Camelot so in the Medieval times. It is also a steampunk historical fiction. 

The Witch Hunter by Virginia Boecker

This is sort of a mix between fantasy and historical fiction as it is set in the Salem Witch Trials. 

This Dark Endeavor by Kenneth Oppel

This is a prequel to Frankenstein. So, it is a historical fiction novel

10 Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

This is a obviously set in the 18th century and it is a Classic.
