New: My Historical Fiction Blog

June 21, 2012

My final project for my YA Genre Lit class was to make a website about the genre of my choice.

I chose historical fiction.

And promptly fell down a fascinating rabbit hole of academic discussion about historical fiction, readers’ advisory, time periods, and dozens upon dozens of novels I really want to read.

Here it is!

Books Back In Time

The best part is that I really think I’m going to maintain it as a blog in its own right.

Things I would like to add:

  • List of authors, with links to their websites… for the bunches of authors I found who don’t stick to one time period.
  • A list of lists
  • Links to interesting articles about historical fiction and criticism as a genre, from authors, from librarians, all the interesting academic wrangling. (Library school has rubbed off.)
  • Other time period/subgenres, like World War I, Colonial America, alternate history…
  • Contributions from authors, librarians, friends, family members. If you’re reading this, and you have an idea, leave me a comment and I’d be happy to have you post something.

Though, we’ll see… next semester, I’ll be working AND taking two really intense classes. 

Maybe being back in time will feel like a vacation.
