Top 10 Tuesday — War Torn Worlds

29 May

This week’s Top 10 Tuesday theme is book worlds that readers do/do not want to live in. I love that authors take me away to times and places I could not and would not dare to visit. I want to know what actual people went through, but I would never wish to have those experiences first hand. My list is all about the sieges, battles, and internment camps of war time. The books on my list are rich in detail and capture the times perfectly. They authors created worlds I am so glad I visited from the safety and peace of my favorite reading spot.

Make sure to visit That Artsy Reader Girl to discover other bookish worlds.

    I have only read The Butterfly and the Violin. Need to put the rest on my TBR mountain.

    I like that you chose real-world events instead of fantasy ones. I don’t think I could survive a war. I’m too fluffy.

      Me either. But I think it is important to understand what “regular” people went through.
