Would love a narrative nonfiction book about the internal world of animals or plants, like THE HIDDEN LIFE OF TREES or BEING A DOG. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 16

I love police procedurals where something from the detective's childhood comes back to haunt them in a new case, ala Tana French. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 15

Another thing I'd love to see is an adaptation/retelling of a myth, fairy tale or legend. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I love retellings, especially Shakespearean ones. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

Oooh, I also love historical fiction. I'm a total sucker for books set in Victorian London, but I love other times and places too. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I also like YA that's a blend of light and serious. Like people dealing w/ a serious issue w/ heart and a sense of humor. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I love practical how-to with a great platform about business, wellness, health, and relationships. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I love books with an overriding sense of dread or creepiness. #showmethecreepy #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I love magical realism, especially with lush, visceral writing. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I also want upmarket fiction about how some event from the past ripples into and impacts the present. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I want upmarket fiction that delves into the intricacies of the relationships between people. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I want books with diverse characters. #MSWL #WNDB

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I want books that challenge tropes and stereotypes. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

And stories about spying on your neighbor who you think has committed a crime (ala "Rear Window" and "The Burbs"). #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I want stories set in the suburbs about the kind of apathy and delirium that the suburbs breeds. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I'd love something like "Crazy Ex Girlfriend" (in YA or adult), w/ a quirky sense of humor and a completely relatable crazy obsession. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I'm kind of obsessed with "Ghost Adventures" right now, so a YA novel about a ghost investigator would be amazing! #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

The only kind of paranormal I'm interested in are stories involving ghosts. Please no angels, demons, werewolves, vampires. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I'm also looking for not so serious contemporary YA about teen life: relationships, texting, blogging, etc. #MSWL

Annie Bomke @ABLiterary · Sep 13

I'm interested in literary/psychological horror along the lines of "is this all in my head, or is there some real entity doing this." #MSWL
