Dainty, at the top of each page of this string is a post that list the options upon which you can vote. Just choose the category you prefer, and click the button next to your choice. At the bottom of the post is a SUBMIT button that needs to be clicked.
Now, I'll bet you are now thinking: Now why didn't I see that? :lol:

Vote switched :shhh:
She/Her

People who say “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” don’t understand how words can be stones, hard and sharp-edged and dangerous and capable of doing so much more harm than anything physical.

Voted fantasy, but historical fiction would be my second choice.

Well there is a lot more history out there than mystery. :roll:

^ The further back you go, the more mysterious it becomes.
Also the victors so often write history *their* way. 2 sides (at least) to every story, and memory is not the most trustworthy of things, even for so-called 'photographic' people.

:) I do approve! Although, I do love fantasy as well, I just feel like that I haven't read a lot of historical fiction lately and would to find a good one!

The last English king is well worth your time, if I can think of one that most gripped me while history studies were fresh in my data banks.

My choices are: 'The Hunchback of Notre-Dame' by Victor Hugo and 'Birdsong' by Sebastian Faulks.
