I would be very pleased to receive your list of recommendations. I am most interested in the Victorian era.
Since the Victorian period is a favourite for some of the HT bloggers we were quite happy to come up with a list:
Tasha Alexander - Emily Ashton series
Libba Bray - A Great and Terrible Beauty (YA with a touch of paranormal but definitely Victorian)
Tracey Chevalier - Falling Angels (opens at the very end of the Victorian era)
Jennifer Donnelly - The Tea Rose and The Winter Rose
Julia Gregson - The Water Horse (deals with the Crimean war)
Jane Harris - The Observations
Elizabeth Peters - Amelia Peabody series
Anne Perry - the Monk and the Pitts series
Deanna Raybourn - Julia Grey series
Rebecca Ryman - Olivia & Jai
Dan Simmons - Drood
Kate Summerscale - The Suspicions of Mr Whicher (NF about a murder)
Sarah Waters - Fingersmith and Affinity
And then there's always fiction written during that period as Gaskell's North and South, Mary Barton, Cranford; Wilkie Collins's The Woman in White
And finally there are some books we would like to read which are also set in that period: The Mysteries of Glass by Sue Gee, The Sealed Letter by Emma Donoghue, Kept by D J Taylor, The Glass of Time by Michael Cox, The Crimson Petal and the White by Michael Faber, The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O'Connor McNees.
Would anyone like to suggest more titles to add to Valerie's TBR pile?
