This list took me way too long. I have a very picky palate when it comes to historical fiction and there are so many to choose from. I have to admit, writing a book in this genre would scare the hell out of me knowing you owe the reader accuracy and truth from a foreign culture and timeline. Like the coffee cup in the final season of Game of Thrones, I'll stick to where my twisted mind flourishes--thrillers and romance--not wanting to botch a good thing. Although, there's a certain appeal in resurrecting the past and finding forgotten truths.
