I’ve been in such a Mood for two very different kinds of books:

(1) Southern fiction a la Kristy Woodson Harvey, with warmth, setting as character, female friendships and/or multigenerational families, and secrets/hardships that come to light. Can be A or YA!

Historical is hard in YA and Adult but ohhhh, I love it so. Tell me a great story of under-studied women, events, and areas of history. Give me spies and queens, codebreakers and slice of life, THE ALICE NETWORK and OUTRUN THE MOON. #mswl

I’m focusing a lot in Adult as well—women’s fiction, fantasy, and historical. With WF I want to see upmarket book club fiction (ELEANOR OLIPHANT) and romcoms (MEET CUTE). I want lyrical, historically-inspired fantasy (EMPIRE OF SAND, Juliet Marillier, anything witches). #mswl

Help me through this sinus infection by sending me #mswl I’m desperate to read:

Female code breakers/spies a la BBC’s Bletchley Circle, THE ALICE NETWORK, or VELVET UNDERCOVER. Remarkable women in history who served great purpose in war. Mostly adult, but will take YA!

Very specific: A, YA, or MG about a painter (or apprentice to, or child of) during the 1666 London Fire. Straight HF or hist fantasy #mswl

Currently listening to THE WEIGHT OF INK, which is about a female Jewish scribe in 1660s London. Talk about specific!

Send send send! 1660s England is FULL of amazing stories just waiting to be told. #mswl
