(no wait, a few other key words: magicians, lesbians, cooking, child narrators, gymnastics, unrequited love, ambitious women, fat women)
As usual this list isn't exhaustive, and I never know what I might fall in love with. Submission guidelines are here https://t.co/zt4NJoCYxB
But I'm also keen to expand into science writing this year, particularly in areas of health and technology - if you have an idea, speak up!
In non-fiction, as always I'm looking for groundbreaking new ideas in personal growth and self-help, and beautiful voices.
In commercial women's fiction, I'm really looking for books for the 20-30 age bracket at the moment.
I see a lot of YA but I'm really keen for something that's beautifully-written, emotional and set in contemporary UK (please no fantasy!)
Book club novels with a secret to figure out at their centre - that partial reveal style that keeps you guessing, and turning the page.
I love upmarket women's fiction novels with sprawling casts of characters, like THE SECRET INTENSITY OF EVERY DAY LIFE.
Huge fan of domestic noir that gets under the skin - I've seen bad mothers by the bucketload but what about fathers and daughters?
I'd love a well-written procedural detective series (think Jackson Brodie or Dublin Murder Squad) with a well-thought out mystery!
My heart always leaps at novels set in my old stomping ground - Sheffield, Leeds, Barnsley, Wakefield and the Peak District.
I'm really looking to build #MG , for 9+. Humour, brilliant world-building a la Eoin Colfer, exciting adventure - send it my way!
First of all, as always, is love stories! Not enough love stories on my list. I like love stories that are clever, contemporary and fresh.
OK guys, I'm back. And I've been thinking about what I'd most like to read this summer! #mswl

Also a police procedural w/ a WOC detective; women's fiction dealing sensitively with transgender issues; reality cooking show fiction #mswl
On my #mswl at the moment: a YA book about siblings who look out for each other; a British Stephanie Plum; something with a stage magician.
