Bridget Smith @bredalotI have been rereading CODE NAME VERITY for the first time since my initial flurry of passion for it, and I still have the same reaction: good Jesus Christ what a VOICE.
My #mswl always includes historical fiction, but I want to have *this* reaction to it. I want a voice that's vibrant and ALIVE, that feels immediately like a person I could know, that makes the quiet parts feel intimate and the stakes feel personal.
In adult, I'm mainly looking for SFF & historical, especially the kind that's both gripping & intimate. I want a really deep dive into a character's (or community's) emotional journey. #mswl
