1. Regency Period (UK)
Yes, this shouldn't really be a surprise if you know me and my love for anything Jane Austen. I would love to go back in time and spend a few days in the Regency period with all its gorgeous dresses and fabulous balls to attend...
2. Victorian Era (UK)
Elizabeth Gaskell, the Bronte sisters, Charles Dickens... All authors I learned to appreciate during my university years. The Victorian period has always fascinated me and I can't get enough of books set in this particular era.
3. Elizabethan Period (UK)
The Elizabethan period is definitely a period I need to learn to appreciate. I had to read so much Shakespeare that I now automatically associate the Elizabethan period with his plays (and want to run away in the other direction). However, there are a lot of novels set in this period that might be really interesting, so I think I have to give this era another chance.
4. Egyptian Era
This is a period I've never actually been particularly interested in. However, when I did some research for this week's Top 10 list I noticed that a lot of people seem to love novels set in the Egyptian period. It definitely caught my interest and I'm curious to check out a novel set in this time, so if anyone has any recommendations, please let me know!
5. The Roaring Twenties
Another period which I don't particularly love at the moment, but which definitely has potential for me to fall in love with. I'd really like to learn a bit more about this period and read some books set in this day and age.
6. Civil War (USA)
The only novel I've read set during the Civil War is one of my personal favourites, 'Little Women'. However, it is definitely a historical period which I'd love to know more about. I guess I could start by finally checking out 'Gone with the Wind'!
I was born in the 1980s, so can't help but have a special fondness for books in which this era is featured!
8. World War I
I've read way too many novels about World War II already, but I'd love to read a bit more about World War I. I have a soft spot for war-time romances, so might need to look out for more of those tales set in World War I.
I used to read a lot of stories set in Roman times when I was at secondary school, but I haven't read a good book set in this era for quite a few years now... If anyone has any recommendations, please let me know!
