Top 5 Tuesday: books set in the past

Hey, guys!
It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for a bookish favorites post. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
Can you believe it is November already?! We’re doing a mini-series for this month’s T5T, with books set in the past, present, future, and alternate universes. To kick things off, let’s take a look at novels taking place in the past!

#1 Once Upon A Time in Hollywood

A little confession: I wasn’t fond of the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood book, but I simply adore the movie. I do, however, love the time the story is set in. I don’t know why by the late sixties fascinate me.

#2 The Devil All the Time

This one spans a little more time. If I recall correctly we start just after WWII but end around a similar time as Once Upon a Time. I found The Devil All the Time to be fascinating. It gives you a glimpse into the past and how things change a bit over time.

#3 Rebecca

This one is set in the 30s. While I often run into trouble with books not just set in the past but also written in that time, this one never felt outdated while reading. In fact, a lot of the topics addressed are still extremely relevant.

#4 The Book Thief

The Book Thief is among the best things I’ve read and it completely broke my heart. This story takes place during WWII.

#5 The Map of Time

And finally, we go back a little further in time than with my previous picks. The Map of Time is set in Victorian England. I still have to read the rest of the series, but I tremendously enjoyed this one.
