This one is a toss up for me. I am torn between two time periods so I’ll share both.
Something that you might not know about me (I didn’t even know it about myself until recently) I LOVE historical romance novels. I know, it’s a guilty pleasure; but I am enamored with getting sent back in time, it’s romantic and exciting and… different. It’s nice to get lost in a good book and imagine what it would be like back in the day (or at least the romanticized versions of the time periods).
So; first up: I love England in the late 1700’s/very early 1800’s.
The fashion, the chivalry, the romance, the disapproving Ton, the lack of electricity and simplicity of it all… I love it, and I think it would be really fun to be a part of it. At least for a little while (until the reality of it sets in… poverty, disease, corruption etc.).
My second favorite era would be American frontier/wild west. (mid to late 1800’s)
It’s no secret I love horses, so this era seems fitting. I like to think I’d be some strong female gunslinger of sorts, all tough as nails and great with horses, but I think those were few and far between. Either way, I love everything about the Wild West, much like what I love about the late 1700’s, I love the simplicity of it all and the fashion, but I love the ruggedness of the Wild West. It took a lot of strength and will to survive. It was a time of outlaws and renegades. It was a highly dangerous time… but in the romanticized versions in my books they make it seem so exciting and romantic. I’m a sucker for chivalry apparently.
