Shogun was another glorious historical fiction novel. If you like Japanese history, or if you are curious about the derivations of Japanese culture, you will enjoy reading this loose historical fiction novel set at the end of the 16th century in Feudal Japan.

Oh! And Memoirs of Cleopatra: loved it. Loved George's Henry VIII even more.

I love, love, love Katherine. Love Gone With the Wind, read Sarum in fits and starts, and enjoyed World Without End more than Pillars (it was my companion through Hurricane Gustav), though liked both.

Great list. I see a few more that I could have included on mine.

About Ocatavian Nothing - it requires your full attention and thoughtful reading. If you do take it on vacation be sure to also pack something light and breezy just in case. You may not have any problem with it. May be that I just wasn't that focused.

Hey Suey! Thanks for sharing this list. I'm passing it on to a non-blogging friend who loves historical fiction. :)

I read Katherine in high school and LOVED it but I've wondered since if it was as good as I remembered it. I'm glad to hear that you love it too. It's not really easy to find though. It's not in my library but I did just look on amazon and there is a new edition published in 2004. Maybe I'll just have to buy it.

2009-03-24T20:04:00.000-06:00

I have really enjoyed Ann Rinaldi. I have read from her, Nine Days a Queen (the story of Lady Jane Grey), The Coffin Quilt (story about the Hatfield/McCoy feud), and The Girl in Blue (story of a girl joining the Union army during the Civil War, then being discovered and later joining the Pinkerton Agency). All three of these were really good. Rinaldi has a whole list of historical fiction.

I am going to admit that I have not read The Good Earth. It's on my list. Thanks.

2009-03-23T09:40:00.000-06:00

Love your list!

Gone with the Wind I'm reading right now. The Book Thief is on my nightstand for next month. The Far Pavilions has been on our shelves since I was a child, but haven't read it. Unfortunately, I live across the globe now so I'll have to get my own copy. The Good Earth I've been meaning to read as well.

I posted about Medieval England this week so I've gotten at least three recommendations for The Pillars of the Earth. And then I'll bookmark your list 'cause I'll probably be adding all the rest of those titles that I haven't heard of before but sound so wonderful. Thanks, Suey! :D

2009-03-23T08:54:00.000-06:00

those are some great historical fictions...I loved the book thief after my initial trepidation. I would add Galway Bay to that list!

Michener is fantastic..loved everything he ever wrote, but my ultimate favorite writer is John Jakes. Great list and one that I think I may have to steal from!!

I didn't think about making a Holocaust list...The Book Thief is so awesome! Maybe I need to make a second post...Thanks for the inspiration!

Ooh, I love historical fiction.

I have really enjoyed most of Phillipa Gregory's.

There is another one, The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn by Robin Maxwell that I loved.

There was one similar to that, The Hidden Diary of Marie Antionette by Carolly Erickson that was also a really good historical fiction.

I LOVE Chesapeake. It's a great book and I live right near the Chesapeake Bay, so it's like reading local history.
