RTW -- Going Back in Time

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This Week's Topic:
If you could travel back to any historical era for research purposes, which would you choose?

This one was really hard for me because I don't write historicals and it takes a fantastic exception to get me to read one.

But...I think I would have to choose Victorian times. I've always wanted to go there and even if it was just for research, I still think that would be the time period I would choose. Back to the time of arranged marriages and princes and corsets.

Or maybe Hitler Germany, just because I have a fascination with World War 2. THE BOOK THIEF is undoubtedly one of my favorite books ever, Valkyrie is one of my favorite movies, and ANNEXED is number one on my "To Read" list. It would be horrible, but I'd love to know how everything really happened.

It would be interesting to know what happened on the inside during WWII. Horrifying, but important.

Yes, what Kate said - so many "history" books with conflicting info. I'd be interested to see how things actually played out.

Great choices! I didn't think about it, but WWII would be an interesting time to go back to.

I overlook WW2 because it seems like the History Channel has a monopoly on that.
