If you like Merlin, I recommend the Merlin trilogy by Mary Stewart. I read these in high school and they gave me a life-long fascination with stories about Arthur and his wizard.
1. The Crystal Cave
2. The Hollow Hills
3. The Last Enchantment
If you like Foyle’s War or Land Girls, you might also like books set during World War II in Great Britain. Two of my favorite ones are:
4. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
5. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows
Those two books will work well if you like Bletchley Circle, too, but you might also like:
6. Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson (which I haven’t yet read, but want to)
This next one is an an off-the-wall sci-fi choice that isn’t set in Great Britain, but try:
7. Cress by Marissa Meyer because the title character is skilled with patterns, codes, and computers, so she reminds me of the characters in Bletchley Circle.
If you like Torchwood, you might get a kick out of John Barrowman’s two biographies:
8. Anything Goes
9. I Am What I Am
And, don’t miss the collection of scholarly essays (I kid you not) about Torchwood:
10. Illuminating Torchwood, edited by Andrew Ireland
Do you have books to add to this list?
Besides Top 10 Tuesday, I’ll link this post to British Isles Friday this week.
