Hello ladies and lords!
After this week’s Top Ten Tuesday post on Books Set Outside the U.S. – in which I purposely left out England too – a couple of my dear reading friends still bemoaned England’s absence. I am nothing if not accommodating, but it really needed its own separate post.
And so… TA-DA!
Books set in England kick off a new series I’m starting on the blog – Around the World in Books. I’m not going to lock myself into a certain schedule on these, but other countries will pop up periodically. (If you have a favorite that you’d like to see featured, let me know!)
Now, I left out the classics like Austen and Bronte and Heyer and Dickens and Lewis. Not because I don’t love them (because I do) but because we all already know their books were set in England. And I left off the Harry Potter series for the same reason.
These are all either Christian fiction or “clean fiction”. And because I love y’all, I even divided them into basic time periods so you can zero in on your sweet spots in history. But heads up – this is going to be a LONG post lol. As such, I’m only including the cover images rather than a description of each book or series. Clicking on them will take you to Amazon.
Whew! That was one LONG list! Lol.
I’ve read most of these – or they come highly recommended to me. But I’m sure there are still several that I’ve inadvertently omitted. Another fantastic resource is InspirationalHistoricalFiction.com where you can sort by setting, etc.
What about you? What are some of your favorite books set in England?
