I have been on a real historical fiction/nonfiction kick lately. I can never say why something is going to capture my interest, but I will suddenly go through a bunch of books around one time period or point in history. A couple of months ago, it was the Tudor dynasty. I must have read 15 books, fiction and non, set in that period. Then I had this whole White Chapel/Jack the Ripper thing going on. (Just watched the first episode of Ripper Street, by the way, which was really good!) Then I read a really good book called The Physician, which led me into some good medieval romances. And, the past couple of weeks, after I watched a really interesting documentary on the Jonestown massacre, I started reading about the whole 60′s-70′s era. (No romances novels, though, I’ve never seen any of those, have you? I think the 60′s era might make for a really cool historical romance!)
Just wondering, anybody else ever just get really caught up in a specific time period and want to read nothing but books set in that era? Any to recommend?
