Winter Reading Bingo: Historical Fiction

Our next set of Winter Reading Bingo recommendations are all historical fiction. This list of new titles will take you anywhere from 1650s Amsterdam to 1950s Mexico. If you really love historical fiction and want to read multiple books with historical settings for your bingo card, there are books on the list that could also count as mystery, romance, inspirational, YA, and sci-fi/fantasy. If you’re looking to listen to a historical fiction audiobook, there are plenty of good choices through Plum Creek’s Overdrive/Libby.
