maggieโ€™s bookish wishlist โ˜€๏ธ

small irish towns with comedic plots, romance, and adventure!

contemporary romances that use tropes well and skillfully incorporate plot twists

well-written historical romances, set in interesting time periods with a balance of fact and fiction, and strong plots

light-hearted romances and adventure

murder mysteries that focus more on character development and the unraveling of the mystery than gore or evil

world fiction / classics that teach readers about experiences, possibilities, and viewpoints without dragging us through the real or imagined horrors of the human experience

inspirational books that come from a place of wanting to help people through personal experience and/or research, not to make money or invent encouragement

recipe books with yummy pictures (haha!) and more basic ingredients? like ones i can recognize and pronounce? and buy? (sorry kelly, i donโ€™t know where to buy marjoram or rhubarb)

chemistry books about the periodic table elements and practical application that doesnโ€™t confuse me aha

history books that talk about cool/interesting historical stuff without a focus on like super politics or public humiliation ehe

fantasy books about dragons! (good and evil is fine, but dark magic or demonics? plz no)

cozy mysteries that arenโ€™tโ€ฆ stupid ๐Ÿ™ƒ

  1. I can’t wait to do this tag!! I loveeee bookish tags and bookish posts in general and this is such a good idea! ๐Ÿ’• also I have a few recs for the ones you mentioned:)
    for plot-twist romances, The Soulmate Equation by Christina Lauren is great!
    the Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is apparently a historical fiction book, idk how accurate that is but it’s still reallyyyy good.
    hope you like them:) ahhh can’t wait๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ’“

  2. Cool tag!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ This looks like so much fun, I might do it!! And I LOVE THE BADGE!!! HOW ARE YOU SO GOOD AT GRAPHIC DESIGNING??? MAGGIE IT IS SO PRETTY!!!! โคโค

    I have a book rec for you!! For the one, “fantasy books about dragons! (good and evil is fine, but dark magic or demonics? plz no)”, you should read ‘Iron Hearted Violet’ by Kelly Barnhill. It’s a very well-written and interesting book. I read it a few years ago now, but from what I remember there was little/no violence/gory stuff, and no dark magicky things. (though there was normal magic) I really liked the story because it was set in a very cool fantasy world, included dragons lol, and subverted some tropes in some super cool ways. Anyways, it was a really cool book and I think you’d like it!!

    A good historical fiction book, (though I can’t think of any historical fiction romances) , is ‘Two Times a Traitor’ by Karen Bass. It was a great read! It has a slight romantic subplot, but that was really all. It’s about a boy from our time who was put back in into 1700-1800s America/Canada. I also read it a while ago, and I can’t remember there being any thing to warn you about, besides some light violence. The character growth in that book was really great and dynamic, and there were some interestingly-developed relationships.

    I also have one for mysteries!! It’s not a murder mystery, but ‘Ivan the Giant’ by Phillip A. Cruerer is a good one! It focuses more on how the characters grow due to the events leading to/surrounding the mystery than the mystery itself. I guess you could say it’s more a book about character development with a side of mystery lol. There’s no gore/dark stuff in it, and no violence either. The book is really about a eleven-year-old boy’s journey of self-discovery.

    A great murder mystery series is the Flavia De Luce series, though those are kind of dark and contain some gore.

    I thought of another historical fiction one! The Roman Mysteries by Caroline Lawrence is a mystery series set in ancient Rome. They’re really good, and tick multiple criteria as they are historical fiction, historical fiction romance, and murder mysteries! Since it’s ancient Rome and they did some crazy stuff back then, there’s gladiator fights, slavery, animal sacrifice, etc. So some violence I guess. However, they are written for kids so nothing’s super graphic.

    Anyways, those are my book recs! Sorry for writing such a long comment.

  3. This is such a fun and unique tag! Thanks for nominating me, I may just have to do this one!

    For the contemporary romance, I think you might like a book by Nicola Yoon. I feel like a lot of YA romances are cheesy, but I actually enjoyed her books and felt that they had meaning.

    Perhaps you might like A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder as the murder mystery one? It’s not too gory for a murder mystery.
