🩸 Crime 🚓

Likewise, crime with a standout quality is always welcome, whether police procedural, historical crime, detective, psychological crime or crime thriller. Nothing overly gratuitous please!

🏰 Historical Fiction/Saga 🛡

I prefer HF that is character-driven rather than action or ‘battlefield’ heavy and I have a particular penchant for WW2 historical fiction (think Markus Zusak and Heather Morris).

Morally grey, complex and flawed characters are a plus!

🦊 Cosy Crime 🕵️

I’d absolutely love cosy crime from *any* period, whether contemporary like Janice Hallett and Richard Osman, traditional Golden Age murder mystery, or historical crime. The more suspects and red herrings, the better!

#MSWL I would really love a YA historical realistic novel (meaning no fantasy elements) set in the dark or middle ages. Would love a female lead who influences history (but not necessarily a real or true-to-history historical figure) kind of like Uhtred in The Last Kingdom.
