The Alice Network by Kate Quinn reads as a fascinating piece of historical fiction torn between the events of World War I and post-World War II France. Despite a few criticisms, it's quite a page-turning gem that illuminates the unfortunate German-occupied France time periods with real and historical characters brought to life in a believable fashion. If anyone has read Kristin Hannah's 'The Nightingale,' they will enjoy this book, and vice versa.
Thomas Keneally's Schindler's List (or Schindler's Ark) is an account of how the Nazi member and industrialist Oskar Schindler rescued over a thousand Jews from very probable death from at Auschwitz, by protecting them as workers at his enamel ware factory. Thomas Keneally won the Man Booker Prize for Schindler's List in 1982.
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon is not just romance, though romance is a big part of it and it's one of the best things about it. This book is about seeing the gap of generations, seeing how in 200 hundred years so many things have changed, not only epochal, but also people.. People have changed, their ways of mind and heart are completely different and Claire is forced to adapt or die.
Typically, historical fiction books are written about 30–50 years after the event has taken place. The read historical events and the time period of the book play as crucial of a role in the story as any character or plot twist.
Things Fall Apart tells two concurrent stories that overlap and counterbalance each other throughout the novel. One of the novel's focuses centers around the protagonist Okonkwo, a fierce warrior who represents traditional African culture. The other focus is on Okonkwo's tribe, Umuofia, as it undergoes a drastic change in all areas of life once European missionaries enter the fray.
Myths of Old is the final installment to Krishnarjun Bhattacharya's Tantric Trilogy. If you haven’t read Tantrics of Old and Horsemen of Old, I would advise you not to read this installment until you have. Myths of Old's world is constantly evolving and author Krishnarjun doesn’t waste his time catching readers up to what they should already know, which I have to admit, is part of what I love about his writing.
One Day, Life Will Change is a sweet and inspiring story about two characters that are complete opposites and very unique in their own way. Samaira was a quirky and light-hearted, and I really liked reading about her and getting a glimpse at how her mind worked. But after losing everything, her love, parents and her career, she's despondent to any feelings.

While The Saga of Shom and Raima by Tapan Ghosh a typical love story involving a man discovering the woman of his dreams, the real weight of the entire plot lay in the last few pages. It lays a big emphasis on human choices when things go wrong. Most times, we humans tend to get carried away especially when the going is good. When it gets tough is what determines who we really are on the inside. It was sweet and cute at the beginning, romantic in the middle, agonizing at the near-end, and hopeful at the ending.
