Q1: NA R. Not too impressed by the sound of the heroine, but I like the hero, so I'll give it a shot. Req partial. #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 18 Apr 2014

Q10: Oh joy, a memoir. Calling it a biographical novel doesn't make it so. Pass. #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 18 Apr 2014

Q9: SF but nothing interesting enough to distinguish it from the other space stories I get. Pass. #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 18 Apr 2014

Q8: superhero MG. I've been seeing a lot of this lately, but the MC is a Xander type, so I'm intrigued. Req partial. #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 18 Apr 2014

Q7: C women's fic. Fun premise with a lot of room for tension. Romance, but with an edge I like! Req partial! #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 18 Apr 2014

Q6: erotica, but the query makes it sound like a nasty breakup story and that's not sexy at all. Pass #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 18 Apr 2014

Q5: dystopian MG, but I'm worn out on all things dystopian. Pass. #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 18 Apr 2014

Q4: Labeled as YA, but is MG. Also compared the book to the food you get at a restaurant, so I'm mega confused. Pass #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 18 Apr 2014

Q3: YA SF. Story is fine, not great, but it's half as long as it needs to be. Pass #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 18 Apr 2014

Q2: Literary novel, which I don't rep. Also doesn't sound great. Pass #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 18 Apr 2014

Q1: C YA with a POC lead and a really interesting hook. Request partial #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 17 Apr 2014

Q10: YA C about grief. Interesting premise, but don't love how here's not a big conflict to drive along the story. Pass. #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 17 Apr 2014

Q9: F romance that combines the "chosen one" and pure, unexamined love. Not my thing. Pass #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 17 Apr 2014

Q8: regency romance. Sounds fun, but the premise is a bit hard to believe. Pass. #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 17 Apr 2014

Q6: YA with fantastic elements. Not loving the premise, as it's been done before. Pass. #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 17 Apr 2014

Q5: Time travel NA. Normally not a huge fan, but approaches it in such a new way I need to look. Req partial #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 17 Apr 2014

Q4: Awesome query, excellent premise, but it's about mermaids, which are oversaturated now. Sadly, I pass. #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 17 Apr 2014

Q3: YA F, but the author didn't follow query conventions nor does he really understand the audience. Pass. #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 17 Apr 2014

Q2: MG F. Interesting idea, but it's not grabbing me. Pass. #tenqueries

Laura Zats @LZats · 17 Apr 2014

Q1: R, but not a ton of story. Pass #tenqueries
