That Inevitable Victorian Thing by E.K. Johnston
Series:
 n/a
Genre: YA Science Fiction, Historical

Publication: October 3rd 2017 by Dutton Books for Young Readers
Length: 320 pages

Set in a near-future world where the British Empire never fell and the United States never rose, That Inevitable Victorian Thing is a novel of love, duty, and the small moments that can change people and the world.

Victoria-Margaret is the crown princess of the empire, a direct descendent of Victoria I, the queen who changed the course of history two centuries earlier. The imperial practice of genetically arranged matchmaking will soon guide Margaret into a politically advantageous marriage like her mother before her, but before she does her duty, she’ll have one summer incognito in a far corner of empire. In Toronto, she meets Helena Marcus, daughter of one of the empire’s greatest placement geneticists, and August Callaghan, the heir apparent to a powerful shipping firm currently besieged by American pirates. In a summer of high-society debutante balls, politically charged tea parties, and romantic country dances, Margaret, Helena, and August discover they share an unusual bond and maybe a one in a million chance to have what they want and to change the world in the process —just like the first Queen Victoria.

For this playlist, I wanted to include some songs that reminded me of the futuristic, diverse, worldly vibes that I got from this book. As a result, I tried to include some songs that I felt were epic, rhythmic, bold, and downright fun. Check it out below:
