Thanks to a laptop problem and other unavoidable domestic and personal circumstances I am treating myself to a brief reading vacation. This has two serious aims:
- To identify examples of modern historical fiction (including historical romance) that align with my own work.
- To work out why (in my not-particularly-humble opinion) some books grip me in terms of style, content and writing and others, well, just get chucked in the nearest flower bed.
I will use Instagram* to suggest “three gifts” that my favourite books offer me as a writer-reader.
