And I like a little genre mixing, so send me your upmarket historical mysteries and psychological sci-fi horror and magical realism retelling of Hamlet. #MSWL

I am a sucker for cat-and-mouse games and locked room mysteries. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

Epistolary novels can be very fun. Send me those things! #MSWL

I said it the other day and I'll say it again, I'd love to get more coming-of-age horror. Though I like coming-of-age mixed with mystery too, like the brilliant novel DODGING AND BURNING. #MSWL

I really want fiction and nonfiction that focuses on internet culture, like SO YOU'VE BEEN PUBLICLY SHAMED or the movie "Ingrid Goes West." #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

I want fiction and nonfiction on hot contemporary topics. Police brutality, immigration, white supremacists/the alt-right, etc. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

I also want fresh prescriptive nonfiction with a strong platform in business, self-help, relationships, parenting, etc. Maybe a guidebook in an untapped market that has a large audience. #MSWL

I'm a sucker for history narrative nonfiction that juxtaposes two people from the same time, like THE DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY or THE PROFESSOR AND THE MADMAN. If your title is THE _____ AND THE _____, I will probably like it. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

I'd love to get more narrative nonfiction with a strong platform. Maybe something pop science-y, psychology-y, true crime, flashy history, memoir. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

I love both magical realism that's grounded in a contemporary world and immersive magical realism that creates its own world. #MSWL

I want diversity always. Any kind of diversity you have I want. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

I love me a cozy mystery, so keep the cozies coming. The funnier the better! #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

For YA, I typically go for a contemporary story, though I also like historical and mysteries. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

I'd love to get a character-driven police procedural in the vein of Tana French. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

I like workplace satire. The more absurd the better. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

I don't do pure fantasy novels, but I am looking for books like THE HAZELWOOD that are set in a contemporary world but have fantastical elements. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

I like literary, high concept sci-fi in the vein of Ray Bradbury or Philip K. Dick. Bradbury in particular was great at really character-driven, emotion-driven stories, whether they were sci-fi, horror or contemporary. That's what I'm looking for in sci-fi. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 12

Happy #MSWL Day! I'm looking for commercial, literary and upmarket fiction for both adult and YA. I love mysteries, historical, magical realism, myth retellings, novel retellings, psychological thrillers/suspense, psychological/literary horror...

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Jun 1

Right now I'm really into books that look closely at internet culture. Fiction or nonfiction. #MSWL

Finally saw "Get Out." I want that in a book. #MSWL
