For example, I recently read Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie which is a retelling of Antigone set in modern London.
I definitely love this topic. I read Colm Toibin's House of Names last year, and it was also excellent.

My TBR spreadsheet has a notes column on it, and I have been known to assign months or seasons in that field.

I've moved a few posts about children's books to the Welcome thread as the discussion seems to be ongoing.

Suggestion of a children's lit theme duly noted here.
