Reading a lot this year I'm noticing lots of trends in YA. So far I've seen Italy, Glass Blowing , One Crazy Night, and what got the most comments, the Game of Thrones for YA trend. Now, the gossipy historical trend isn't new. The Luxe came out in 2007. But this year I've nocticed a rise in the gossipy historicals being published. I think it's partly due to Downton Abbey's popularity that is making this trend rise, especially give the this book: Wentworth Hall by Abby Graham -This one is a pretty obvious Downton Abbey readalike Keeping the Castle by Patrice Kindl -Austenesque historical that I think fans of Downton Abbey would love! It doesn't have the be the same time period as these. There is gossip in historical fiction to be had even further back! Ladies in Waiting by Laura L. Sullivan -Gossipy historical set in the 1600s Gilt by Katherine Longshore -Gossipy historical set in the Tudor Age Have you seen any other gossipy
