Book aesthetics: historical fiction

I love Pinterest (lets follow each other!) and I have a few boards with literature and TV aesthetics, so I thought it would make an interesting blog post.

In this post I’ve made some aesthetic for my most recent reads historical fiction: Song of Achilles, Company of Liars and The Familiars. I might also make aesthetics for some classics in another post, we’ll see!


The Song of Achilles

Ancient Greece: The Iliad


This board made me emotional all over again. The book was beautifully written and so heartwarming but also heart wrenching at the same time – I don’t know how Madeline Miller does it. After looking at some reviews, at first I rated it 4 stars, but I changed that to 5 later because what matters is how it made me feel and I loved it! 

Hopefully I did the book justice with this aesthetic board. To me, there’s a mixture of wholesomeness and tragedy which makes it instantly recognisable as The Song of Achilles.


Company of Liars

Medieval: The Plague


Company of Liars is my most recent fiction read – I’ve written a review here, so I won’t ramble on about it again! It was pretty hard to find aesthetic medieval pictures so most of them are references to the book instead, with characters or places.


The Familiars

Stuarts: The Witch Craze


I read The Familiars last month and gave it 4 stars. I loved the friendship between Fleetwood and Alice, but I couldn’t really capture that on this board :(. The Stuarts was probably the hardest to find pictures for but I like how it turned out!

Thanks for reading! Which aesthetic did you like the most?
