Historical

Elizabeth Copps @escopps · Oct 4

Historical novel based on Marguerite de Bressieux. Go. #MSWL

#MSWL Since it's October, I would love something gothic and creepy, a dark fantasy, or a historical in #YA or #A. Or something like Into the Drowning Deep. Loved that anticipation of waiting to discover the truth followed by horror.

How about some middle grade #MSWL today?

- Classic feel + animal POV (ONE AND ONLY IVAN, PAX)
- Fantasy, both lighthearted and dark (Thickety series, UNICORN QUEST)
- Quirky + puzzles + complex plots (Mysterious Benedict Society, YORK)
- Historical (WAR THAT SAVED MY LIFE)

More QPOC books and authors please! Contemporary, historical and/or fantasy! #mswl

Laurel Symonds @LaurelSymonds · Sep 26

- Blended genres, especially with historical settings (MY LADY JANE, GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE, Jackaby series)
- Groundbreakers that make you say wow (THE HATE YOU GIVE, CODE NAME VERITY)

#MSWL tragic historical romances with some basis in truth/history. Think The Most Beautiful Woman in Florence, the Violinist of Venice, or even Flight of the Sparrow. #A or #YA

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · Sep 25

#MSWL also I want an ice age/Paleolithic story, whether straight historical or with fantasy or other speculative elements in adult and YA, preferably with at least a dash of romance. QueryMe.Online/QueryKatelyn

Katelyn Uplinger @KatelynUplinger · Sep 25

#MSWL Dying for a historical romance (with or without fantasy elements) with romance along the lines of A Court of Thorns and Roses in YA or adult. If you have this, please query me here: QueryMe.Online/QueryKatelyn

Specific #ownvoices #MSWL I’d love to see: a YA historical retelling of SOME LIKE IT HOT about a teen trans girl discovering her identity when she joins an all-girls musical group to escape vengeful mobsters

ZR/Za-BOO Ellor💀👻🕷🕸🧛🏼‍♂️ @ZREllor · Sep 21

#MSWL Fantasy and historical fiction about female characters engaging in traditionally-feminine pastimes. Give me seamstresses breaking curses, wetnurses playing politics, noblewomen arranging marriages for their kids

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.

Alex Arnold @alexyarnold · Sep 13

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