Sweep me away to a historical period I know nothing about but become instantly obsessed with. Give me intrigue, give me characters for days, take me outside of Western Europe #mswl can be either romance or book club/WF!

I’m fascinated with folklore, fables, fairy-tales, mythology – anything which works these elements into its narrative will definitely grab my attention, whether that’s in the crime/thriller, historical or literary space #mswl

In historical fiction, I’m looking for anything rich and beautifully-written which explores a particular time and place with real authority and feeling. For example, I just read Leila Slimani’s THE COUNTRY OF OTHERS and loved it #mswl
