Lina Langlee @LinaLangleeI had a really good reading year in 2022 (thank you audiobooks). Here are some of the ones I enjoyed the most. pic.twitter.com/IopcAnNyVQ
Looking at all the books I read, I definitely favoured romance and fantasy in 2022. This is partly because it’s two genres I love, and also because I actively chose books that I saw all over TikTok for ~research~ (god, isn’t working in publishing great??)
Okay, I’m open for submissions again! My #mswl currently includes dark academia, horror, big emotion romance, anything high concept - MG and up. I love folklore and myths from around the world. If I love the voice I’ll tag along for anything!
For the UK #amquerying crowd: NOW would be a very good time to send me fun contemporary MG, magical realism MG, YA romance, YA horror or other YA/crossover SFF.
Seeing a lot of 'timely' manuscripts (read 'dystopian') in our submissions inbox when all I want is ESCAPISM.
I want your fluffy romances, the book equivalent of a Bollywood film, feel-good cosy stuff with a great hook that make you WANT to stay in.
