Eternally here for YA Rosemary's Baby. Not in the super-natural sense, but in the social horror sense. #MSWL

#MSWL horror please! Think the creepy, shadowy, social horrors. Fav's include THE WINTER PEOPLE or THE LONEY or ROSEMARY'S BABY or THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE or A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS and lots of Mr. King, of course. But not so much the slasher fic kind.

#MSWL I always fall for the "best friends should be dating" trope but lately I'd also love a bff pair who love and admire one another's beautiful selves but also do not want to bang. Think Jack & Liz or Harry & Hermione or John Kimble & Phoebe O'Hara (Kindergarten Cop, y'all).

And, as always, #MSWL utterly gripping literary or upmarket commercial adult fiction - be in speculative or historical or contemporary - with strong stories rooted in secrets.

Also #MSWL High-concept YA contemporary or historical with easily digested strong hooks (light or dark). Everything from HEIST SOCIETY to SAVE THE DATE to WE WERE LIARS...

I have a lot of feelings about using need as a metric by which to judge works of art, particularly those that represent marginalized voices. So if you're concerned that teens may no longer "need" your marginalized rep. YA, no worries. That's still on my #MSWL
