CRRL My Librarian: Medieval Adventures
Grab your sword and shield, and hop on your trusty steed because these historical fiction books will take you on a medieval adventure.
I’m interested in a wide variety of subjects and my reading habits reflect that. When it comes to non-fiction, I tend to read a lot of history books. Some of my favorite subjects are military history, colonial history, and historical mysteries/oddities. I’m a bit of a DIYer so, from time to time, I will read books on carpentry, cooking, sewing, painting/drawing or any other craft that might peak my interest. I also really enjoy the outdoors, so books on plant and animal identification are always interesting to me.
As for fiction, I tend to like books that move along at a steady to fast pace; anything with a bit of swashbuckling or daring deeds usually peaks my interest. I also read mysteries and horror on occasion.
