I am looking for thrillers and crime fiction of all types; book club fiction that moves me and makes me think; great historical fiction (including novels featuring fantasy/mythology). In non-fiction, books which work on an emotional level and let me in on the conversation. #mswl

I'd love to read a historical fic about the Indian soldiers who fought for the Brits in WWII (at a time when the struggle for freedom from UK rule was at its height). When I say I want to see a NEW side of WWII/histfic, this is what I mean (& written by an Indian author!) #MSWL
