My left arm for historical fiction about Abigail Adams and this letter she wrote to John: "I desire you would remember the ladies... Do not put such unlimited power into the hands of the husbands. Remember, all men would be tyrants if they could." #MSWL

Been having the best time with my youngest, who introduced me to Fruits Basket over break. Just finished the third season, and if anyone can send me an MS that comps to that or makes me feel the same way Tohru, Kyo, Yuki, Momiji, Haru, Rin & the zodiac members do, I'm in... #MSWL

"I'd really love to get more YA horror in my inbox. Smart horror. I don't want gore, I want a story that creeps me out, and asks questions I don't want answers to."

"Send me select horror—I'm more interested in psychological elements, but I don't mind a bit of gore. Anything disturbing or unnerving is up my alley. Novels and collections welcome!"

(Oh, I also love romance!! But it's a crowded market and it needs to have a big hook/ fresh perspective for me to fall in love!)

^^ Phew that’s a lot! Evergreen reminder that I’m pretty genre agnostic, so if you think we would be a fit, go ahead and try me!

This also goes for sci-fI! I’m not the best fit for hard sci-fi, but anything that feels “five seconds in the future” (ex. “Black Mirror”) is right up my alley. I couldn’t get enough of THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD MOTHERS and “Severance,” and would love to find something similar!

Grounded genre fiction! I’m always craving books like ADDIE LA RUE or SERPENT & DOVE (two of my all-time faves!) for my list -- something with a lush setting, a big concept, and plenty of romance.

Historical fiction! I’m a big Kate Quinn fan, and am looking for stories w/ a similar vibe - something that can make the past feel accessible/ compelling to a modern audience. I devoured THE CHRISTIE AFFAIR and THE WIDOW OF ROSE HOUSE - give me all the historical glitz and drama!

Horror! I’m a huge horror movie fan, and am always on the hunt for a project to keep me up all night. Books that recently scared the pants off me: THE HACIENDA, JACKAL, THE HONEYS, and HOUSE OF HUNGER. Does it have a sense of humor a la NIGHTBITCH or “Yellowjackets?” Even better!

(In YA, think THE CHEERLEADERS or ACE OF SPADES. I KILLED ZOE SPANOS and THE AGATHAS are other favorites! Surprise me!)

Thrillers! I’m famously hard to surprise, so anything with a twist I don’t see coming is an auto “yes.” Ruth Ware, Riley Sager, Megan Abbott, and Lucy Foley are my go-tos, but I would love to read something that can put a fresh twist on the genre (think THE MAID or "Knives Out.")

I’ve been especially loving books with a genre twist lately -- PORTRAIT OF A THIEF comes to mind as a great example of what I’m looking for, as does COUNTERFEIT or LUCKY. I’m a sucker for a charming con artist, or an intricately plotted heist. Bonus if it makes me laugh!

Doing my 2023 #mswl wishlist early this year, because Twitter might implode at any second! Here’s a non-exhaustive list of what I’m looking for (in all age ranges!) for 2023:

Upmarket fiction! Anything with a big hook and accessible writing has my name all over it. Does it feel like something your book club would love? Send it my way! Recent faves include LESSONS IN CHEMISTRY, TRUE BIZ, TOMORROWx3, and CARRIE SOTO. The bigger the concept, the better!
