Top Ten Historical Settings I Love

Top Ten Historical Settings I Love
(Feature hosted by the Broke and the Bookish)

Had some options on this one.  I could take a look at the past with historical settings I love or would love to see, or I could take a look at the future for societies I love or would love to read about in books. 

I chose the former, anti goes without saying that I would love to actually see the settings in some of my favorite historical fiction titles.  Someone really needs to invent time travel.  Have your read Timeline by Michael Crichton?  For a history nerd, that was the ultimate.  Going back.  Living the life.  Trying to survive.  And the story almost gave me a heart attack.

What's on your list?  Do you love past or future societies?

1) WWII (1940s) American Homefront - Flygirl by Sherrie Smith

2) WWII (1940s) The Front - Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

The Diviners (The Diviners, #1)
3) New York (1920s) Roaring Twenties - The Diviners by Libby Bray

Black Duck
4) Rhode Island (1920s) Prohibition - Black Duck by Janet Taylor Lisle 

5) England (14th Century) Medieval Times - Crispin by Avi

6) High Seas (18th Century) Colonization - Pirates! by Celia Rees 

7) French Quarter (1950s) New Orleans - Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys

8) Manifest (1930s) Kansas - Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool

9) Oh Romeo (14th Century) Italy - Juliet by Anna Fortier
