Reminder that I'm always on the lookout for dark academia books in YA & Adult especially by BIPOC authors!

Anything including a speculative element, solving a mystery, challenging the elitism of higher education, and a close knit group of friends are 👌

Monthly reminder that I'd really love some darker small town dynamic stories especially if they have found family, queer characters, a spooky forest and a light magical element.

Monthly reminder that I'd love more of the following stories:

- Southern Gothic

- Small town/isolated settings with a darkness to them and how characters deal with it. Think Sawkill Girls or Burn Our Bodies Down

- Queer found families with various dynamics.

I'm looking for a fantastic and smart heist novel, whether set in a contemporary world or speculative. If it has multi-pov or a crew, SIGN ME UP.

I want MORE Latinx writers and stories. I'm Puerto Rican so would love to see some of my culture reflected back as well as Latinx authors who write Magical Realism.

My list is pretty speculative so I'd love more contemporary! Anything that explores platonic and romantic relationships, family, growing up, difficult decisions, etc.

Across the board, I'd love to see more disability/chronic pain representation.

Characters who are not "broken" or seen through a lens of pity, but fully fleshed out and granted agency.

I'd love a southern gothic novel. Creep me out whether with the grotesque or psychologically. Make the setting come alive.

If you have a friendship breakup book, especially following the aftermath (in MG or YA), then I'd love to see it. Or even friends who realize they're not right for each other anymore.

Friendship breakups are painful!

I would love an academia book, especially if it explores the shortcomings, privilege, and elitism of higher education.

I'd like this even more so with an ensemble cast or a tight knit group of scholars.

I'd really love to see a polyamorous relationship. There are too little of these and often misrepresented. If you have this in an adult literary work, that better be the first query I get. 😂

I will open back up to queries tomorrow! 🥳 In preparation, I'd like to do a #MSWL thread about what I'd love to see in my inbox.

As always, I'm on the lookout for queer representation. I'd particularly love to see:

1. More identity discovery/first crushes in MG
2. Sapphic YA rom-coms
3. More queer works by BIPOC authors
4. Queer stories w/ happy endings
5. Supportive queer found families

If you happen to have dark academia books in the YA, YA crossover, or adult literary space, we should talk. 👀
