But, it has to be good fiction, not contrived, and it has to be real - not fake facts =D When I find a good marriage between a compelling story and reality, I am in book heaven. But then, I have always had a strong connection to history, so that's probably part of it. Sometimes when I am in a place, I can sense good or evil that has happened. That's a little spooky, so I don't go around trying to sense stuff LOL!
I definitely agree about the fake facts. I think the worst historical fiction are those that are based incredibly loosely on facts. That's very spooky that you can sense good or evil in a place! I wonder, have you ever been to any major historical sites where you have felt this?! So interesting!

Same here.😊 But add young adult too. 😂
If I do know the subject matter, then I like reading another perspective of the same event; it might give me another perspective that I might not have thought about before.
