#MSWL for 2022, all your upmarket suspenseful adult please. DOs: Magic, Murder, Secrets, Impossible Bargains, Hauntings, Libraries, Heists, Lies, Friendships, Betrayals. DONTs: Sad White People Doing Sad White Things to each other for whole novels.
I'll never not love & rep Children's books, but I am hungry for Adult titles in the up market genre-adjacent spaces; Suspense, Mystery, Speculative, SFF. Recent (to me) favorites include Marlon James, Lucy Foley, Katherine Arden, Kate Racculia, Britt Bennett, N.K. Jemisin. #MSWL
Tiffany Shelton 👻🧟♀️🌙🎃🔮 @TiffanyDiahannAgents, I would love to see more adult subs! I'm looking for upmarket book club fiction. If you have the next Kiley Reid, Raven Leilani, Celeste Ng, Silvia Moreno-Garcia, Brit Bennett, Camille Pagán, Asha Lemmie, or any other authors who write in this space, send my way! #MSWL
I meant, who wouldn't #MSWL this list?
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.
