Top Ten Tuesday: Favorite YA Historical Fiction

Top Ten Tuesday is on hiatus for about a month, and while Jamie told us we could do our own weekly lists, I didn't plan on doing this, just because I had other posts I could use to fill the gaps for most weeks (and also I was concerned I'd do a topic they would use once they returned). But I decided to do one this week, the only Tuesday I really needed a post (besides the 18th, but I'll be out of the country then, so the fewer posts I have to share, the better). ANYWAYS. This is getting long and rambly, so I should just get to the book list. Here are my favorite YA historical fiction novels!

1. Under a Painted Sky by Stacey Lee

2. Vengeance Road by Erin Bowman

3. The Forbidden Orchid by Sharon Biggs Waller

4. The Girl from Everywhere by Heidi Heilig

5. Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin

6. Rebel Mechanics by Shanna Swendson

7. Walk on Earth a Stranger by Rae Carson

8. Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman

9. Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers

10. Rose Under Fire by Elizabeth Wein

11. A Tyranny of Petticoats by various authors

12. These Vicious Masks by Tarun Shanker and Kelly Zekas

13. Cinders & Sapphires by Leila Rasheed

14. Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys

If you like YA historical fiction, we should definitely talk! What are your favorites?


  1. Rebel Mechanics! I really enjoyed that book, I need to read the next two in the series! :)

  2. I actually haven't read any of these, but quite a few are on my TBR, so it's made me excited to see them on your list!

  3. I loved Walk on Earth, because, well, Rae Carson. There are a few up there I have been wanting to read, especially one of Stacey Lee's books. I read two books by Julie Berry (The Passion of Dolssa, All the Truth That's in Me) and I loved them. Both were great stories, but I also liked the time period.

  4. Oohh we share a lot of fave YA hist fiction books! I also LOVED walk on earth a stranger, out of the easy and vengeance road and highly enjoyed under a painted sky and prisoner of night and fog! some of my other favorites: salt to the sea (seriously love ruta sepetys) and code name verity (but I haven't read rose under fire yet!). I need to check out the others on your list!

  5. So many lovely books here. Glad you decided to share this topic.
