Young Adult Historical Books Recommendations
« on: July 15, 2012, 11:50 AM »
Hi,
can anyone recommend me some good young adult historical books (with a little fantasy, i.e. dragons, magic etc. is also ok)? Something with a little romance, a little intrigue, and most importantly a strong heroine.
Some books of this genre that I've read are:

The Live and Times of Eliza Rose by Mary Hooper
A Countess Below Stairs by Eva Ibbotson
Grave Mercy by R.L. LaFevers
Scarlet by A.C. Gaughen
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

Thank you!

Here's one you might like:
Ancient, Strange, and Lovely by Susan Fletcher
Dragon, girl, and guy (although he has kind of a small role)
and while you're at it you can check out the whole series.

There is also this one:
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
Definitely a favourite,
There are no dragons but an awesome female heroine that dresses as a guy in order to join the British airforce.
To make a long story short she falls for a guy who doesn't know about her true identity. The whole thing is epic!

There's also Starcrossed by Elizabeth C. Bunce
and Witch Song by Amber Argyle.
In both the girls are seriously kick-ass (pardon my wording).
First one is about a thief and the second about the last witch.
If you want to find more books I suggest you go to this website:
