Book Review: Outlander

Hey all! I did one book review ages ago, and I figured I should get back into that.
So here is my second book review, for Outlander by Diana Gabaldon.

I was too lazy to retake a picture of my book, so I had to take a picture of my old picture on Instagram...I'm lazy.

I'd heard awesome things about Outlander from multiple people, and had it on my to-read list for ages. I'd just never gotten around to reading it. After receiving an Amazon gift card, I decided it was time for Outlander.

I loved it! There is so much detail in this book, both historical and cultural. The only reason I ever really read romance books is for the historical fiction. I love historical fiction, and historical romances do it so well. This book definitely falls into the historical romance genre, but there is enough action in it to qualify as straight up historical fiction and adventure as well.

For the most part I loved the main characters, though there was a scene in the middle where I got so frustrated with both of them that I had to take a break. I eventually forgave their actions and was re-hooked.

I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

Have any of you read Outlander? Any other historical fiction recommendations for me?
