Outlander crosses a lot of genres, and as such the entire series gets plenty of miles on site and is suggested for many, many polls and reading lists. It won’t be topping this one though! Based on your love of this series, we asked for the books you would recommend to those who loved Outlander and from your replies we have eight books to try if you loved the series.
Shout out to all those who suggested reading Outlander again!
Into the Wilderness – Sara Donati
If you want another saga, this may well be perfect as Into the Wilderness is the first in a series of books. It has history, it has a love story and plenty of drama and might well be the perfect follow up series to Outlander.
Earth’s Children – Jean M. Auel
I guess the oldies never go out of fashion and Earth’s Children has proved a popular series, standing the test of time. I’ve read them all and while the early ones are wonderful, I felt the writing quality dropped off before the end.
At the Water’s Edge – Sara Gruen
And from the same author is At the Water’s Edge, set in the Scottish Highlands at the end of World War II, it certainly gets the location right and might well appeal to those who love the Scottish series.
The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern
The Night Circus has turned out to be one of those novels that is hard to genre, and it has that at least in common with Outlander. It was the hot book last year in our group, but it hasn’t yet made it to the top of my own TBR.
Thankfully Diana Gabaldon is still writing, and there are hopefully more books to come in the Outlander-verse, but if you’re looking for something to fill the gaps, there are some great suggestions here!
