Old Timey Books is a new book blog devoted to the genre of historical fiction, particularly historical fiction that fits into one or more of these categories:

  • the main character or characters is/are women
  • the main character or characters is/are POC/non-white
  • the main character or characters is/are LGBTQ

This may be expanded upon later but for now, this is going to be OTB’s main focus.

The last few years have been a Golden Age for really great historical books. Readers can expect this blog to feature lots of reviews, author interviews, news, giveaways, and more. We’re very new so please be patient while we get things situated and sorted. Thank you for your patience.

If you’re into real history too, make sure to check out OTB’s sister site, The Lazy Historian.
