EVERGREEN #MSWL: Historical fiction where a secret from the past influences the story's present (if it's a bit creepy or twisty, even better!)

#mswl I’m also looking for Romance. The higher the heat level the better. I love historical romance, and one of my favorite tropes is enemies to lovers.

YA historical fiction set in the 1950s-70s, where the story offers insight/parallels to contemporary culture #MSWL

I’d love to see someone take a modern/contemporary well-loved/well-known story and flip it on its head to a historical. A flipped retelling if you will. Bonus points for some magical realism. #MSWL

Top of my #MSWL: women's fiction and romance by/about underrepresented voices. Contemporary. Historical. Contemporary or historical with a magical element. Grounded SF. Romcoms. Happy books. Also, maybe a big, sweeping gothic romance?

I absolutely loved the German film THE MARRIAGE OF MARIA BRAUN and would love to see some historical fiction in Germany post war world II. It is because of that movie that I better understood my own Opa. #MSWL

Specifically, I’d love a contemporary #YA set in Prague (modern day or historical). Bonus points if it includes a love story as beautiful as the astronomical clock tower. #MSWL
