All The Books I Need in 2017: The Historical YA Edition

Posted December 30, 2016 by Hannah in uncategorized / 4 Comments

It’s time for another All The Books 2017! Can you see how excited I am? 2017 is going to be a great year for books, and I’m really, really excited that historical fiction is making its mark in YA lit this year. I love historical set novels, and I’d dearly love to read more, so if you have any suggestions, please let me know so I can add them to my TBR!!

You know the best thing about historical fiction? It covers such a huge stretch of time period, we literally get absolutely everything! I love most of history; I find it fascinating and intriguing and I love being able to see it woven into fiction. From World War Two, the rule of Julius Caesar to Regency Europe, 2017 has some amazing releases coming up. Let’s please continue this on into 2018 and 2019 and pretty much forever please! Follow the links on the covers to add them to your Goodreads TBR! (you know you want to)

I’ve also got  The Innkeeper’s Daughter by Cindy Trumbore // Odd and True by Cat Winters on my list, but they don’t have covers yet. Both sound really, really intriguing and are from two completely different time periods!!

If you’re like me and didn’t read a great deal in 2016, you probably missed out on reading these great books too (I promise I will get to Dolssa, Taneika!). I’ve had so many good recommendations in 2016, these are just some of the books that were released that I have on my TBR, and hopefully I’ll get the chance to back-read some of them in 2017.

Who said anything about conquering TBRs, right? I’m going to need a holiday from a holiday just to get through this lot alone! If you have any more historical fiction to recommend, let me know in the comments below!

  1. Ooh, I really want to read both “Stalking Jack the Ripper” and “Gilded cage.” I feel like its been so long since I read a good YA historical. I woulda also recommend Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys which was one of my favourite 2016 reads!

  2. I love historical fantasy so much and you’ve definitely grown the TBR! Valiant was the only 2017 release I already had on my list. I recently bought Stalking Jack the Ripper and need to get my hands on The Passion of Dolssa sometime soon!

    As for recs, anything by Juliet Marillier is amazing (Many of her books are set in early Ireland). I’m also really enjoying Lady Helen and the Dark Days books by Alison Goodman #Aussiesrepresent

  3. I’m hoping to read Stalking Jack the Ripper this year! I had it out from the library in October but didn’t get around to reading it. Historical fiction takes me a while to read through, but one I love is Number the Stars by Lois Lowry. Really small book, but excellent story.
