I love historical fiction, but I am picky. Because I want to see a historical voice. I love Ruta Sepetys for this reason. Give me histories I have never seen, give me view points never known. Immerse me in the setting, and culture. #MSWL #YA #MG

In light of my query 0, I am going to do a #MSWL tomorrow. For now, here is a snapshot:
-Fluffy YA rom-com.
-Well-written psychological friendship book (YA)
- Literary-esque but cinematic fantasy YA and MG
- Historical Fiction like @RutaSepetys
- Quirky, Fun, Voicey MG

And finally, some historical fiction is much needed. #MSWL

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

For YA and MG Historical Fiction, voice is key. World building is key. I am less interested in post 1950s historical , unless it is a history I don't know. #MSWL

Give me more historical fiction. Hidden histories! Some of my favorite of late have been @RutaSepetys's books and WOLF HOLLOW. #MSWL

I want a literary book that is not contemporary. Give me a literary fantasy, magical realism, historical fiction. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 1 Feb 2018

I want a historical that feels historical: from the writing, to the voice. My favorite authors are J. Anderson Coats, Ruta Sepetys, Ann Rinaldi. Recent favorite books: Wolf Hollow. #MSWL

#MSWL I need more historical fiction. We have to show the children the past so they can protect the future.

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 12 Sep 2017

I've been dying for historical fiction. Ann Rinaldi and Ruta Sepetys are two of my favorites. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 12 Aug 2017

I am really in the mood for a historical fantasy, either YA or MG. #MSWL
