Top 10 Tuesday — Reading American History

25 Jul

I am just not feeling today’s Top 10 Tuesday topic — last 10 books I did not finish, or DNF. I just don’t DNF often to have enough for a post. And I have posted a few times on this subject and don’t want to repeat myself. So . . . I am going way off script and continuing my Reading American History series with novels featuring Americans overseas in WWII. Hope you enjoy my non-topic selections. I can almost guarantee you will finish all these books. 😉 You’ll notice that several of the books are from author Sarah Sundin — she does WWII fiction so well, that her books are always a must-read for me.

    I do love your off-topic topic for today because I’m always looking for more historical fiction books, especially surrounding WWII. Thanks for the recs!

    I didn’t know this was a microgenre. Interesting!

    Here is my Top Ten Tuesday post.

    Nice post! This is very interesting as I wouldn’t have thought of this topic or books that go in it.

    Great post, Beckie! I tried to make myself do the DNF post because it would have been easy, but I don’t like to broadcast those books on my blog either. Have a great week!

      Me either. I did see a post detailing the reasons they DNF. But I think I’ve covered that too.

    I love WWII books, but I’ve only read one of these. I’ll have to check the others out. Great list!

    Happy TTT!

    Fun topic, I’ve not read any of these and I read quite a lot of WWII books! The book I just finished, The Librarian of Burned Books actually would have fit this topic, as one of the characters is an American in Berlin in the 1930s.
