Top Great Historical Novels that You Should Add to Your Bucket List
For all those who love to immerse themselves in the black of a good book, there is nothing better than getting lost in the words that are woven intricately in the threads of imagination. Books have a mind of their own, they say. Books can be the best company. But for those who love to read books, they are much more than just “good company”. They become an extension of who the people are and often the readers find not the just association and a sense of belonging, but a sense of self.
There are some books which have crossed the boundaries of time and have become more than just classics. They tie us all together in the spirit of humanity and reveal the ultimate truths. In tests-of-time, we all are the same, regardless of where and when.
