Applied my eyeliner with a heavy hand this morning and I’m in the mood for Gothic everything. Creepy Southern Gothic, moody teenaged goths, etc. #MSWL

Currently in the mood for lost histories, fallen gods, magic-infused cities, and dark, gothic woods...not necessarily in the same book. #mswl

#MSWL Since it's October, I would love something gothic and creepy, a dark fantasy, or a historical in #YA or #A. Or something like Into the Drowning Deep. Loved that anticipation of waiting to discover the truth followed by horror.

Ooh, #mswl day! Right now I’m craving great SF/horror mashups, general dark horror, PI mysteries, gothic suspense, and dark thrillers - YA & adult! Diverse voices always a plus!

Top of my #MSWL: women's fiction and romance by/about underrepresented voices. Contemporary. Historical. Contemporary or historical with a magical element. Grounded SF. Romcoms. Happy books. Also, maybe a big, sweeping gothic romance?

#MSWL American Horror Story: Coven...but good. Gothic boarding schools, empowered women, clash of ideals, exploration of how history and culture shapes magic

Gothic supernatural horror with the tragic beauty of CRIMSON PEAK & the romanticism of JANE EYRE. Bonus points for tragic staring off into the bogs #mswl

Melissa Danaczko @mad2034 · Sep 12

Gothic atmospheres like Sarah Waters, Thirteenth Tale, What Should Be Wild #mswl

Rosie, but spookier 🕷⚰️🦇 @RosalieCJonker · Sep 12

Sarah Waters-y gothic fiction, and/or that "regional gothic" tumblr meme from like a year ago #MSWL
