And I can't say this loud enough: I'm itching for a true murder mystery! I want to play detective along with the characters, I want to try to guess who did it & be wrong & right & wrong & right #MSWL

+ SUPER important for the characters to be well developed, without being caricatures of detectives & bad guys - tell me a story that makes me invested in the characters not just the criminal act (all hail queen Tana French!) #MSWL

On this #MSWL day I'm hoping for an adult female coming of age. Growing up as a girl is so much more complicated than as a boy, let's explore that!!

On that same note, relationships between mothers and daughters always fascinate me... think The Act or Sharp Objects (minus the Munchausen by Proxy) #MSWL

Overall, I want complex relationships, nuanced characters, & smartly plotted novels. A huge plus: a strong sense of place that adds complexity to the story - I don't want just another NYC book! #MSWL #Mystery #Thriller #FamilySaga #WomensFiction #WomenWriters #Speculative

And if you have a smart, twisty, and dark psychological thriller, send it my way! #MSWL #PsychologicalThriller

I also love crazy, dysfunctional, large families, and stories from multiple perspectives-I want to see your characters grow Think The Immortalists or Ask Again, Yes #FamilySaga #MSWL

Love me some literary mystery novels, where the reader can also become the sleuth. Don't just tell me how, I also want to know why! #MSWL #LiteraryMystery

#MSWL Day! Send me your haunting, upmarket and nuanced detective novels, like Tana French and Megan Abbott. More female protagonists please! Complex, coming of age, contemporary relationships, think Marlena and The Immortalists. Adult only.
