Erin Siu @erinssiuCurrently craving: tragic romance, spooky apparitions, repressed memories, mysteries going back centuries, PSYCHOLOGICAL HORROR, "something's wrong with house/person/thing", The Haunting of Bly Manor #MSWL
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeSo it's 2020 and I need more books so #MSWL pic.twitter.com/ZjqixMORcp
These are some of my top needs (from the graphic):
-MG and YA graphic novels
-Mermaids. *I know what I want so I will know when I see it*
-Elegant Horror. (what does this mean, Natascha? Think THE GRACE YEAR, THE HAZELWOOD, WILDER GIRLS) #MSWL
For 2020 #MSWL
I want, as @LauraTNamey just called it, "elegant horror". #MSWL
Lauren’s the Worst (preorder now💁🏻♀️) @laurenspiellerSo I’ve been thinking about books I’ve loved in the last few years & realized many involve scary/spooky elements like ghosts or dark spirits and tackle issues like the “monstrousness” of female power or the darkness of grief & inherited pain, and omg I like horror?? #mswl
I could read some of these. #mswl
Eliza Swift @elizaswiftOur whole office has been talking about the Fyre festivals docs and I have a new #mswl: a YA horror/thriller set at a musical festival gone wrong. Give me this book!!!
Shelly Romero @_smromeroAs someone who was a spooky sorority girl, I’d love to read more sorority horror. Give me dark sisterhood rituals, socials/formals gone wrong, and sisters teaming up to stop a Ghostface like killer.
As someone who attended college without a Greek life, #MSWL
Chelsey Emmelhainz @CKEmmelhainzMy current #MSWL:
- toxic female friendships
- spooky suspense (maybe w/ supernatural/horror bent)
- suspense featuring cults and witches (a la, THE CRAFT)
- family dysfunction + messed up secrets
- female serial killers
This is my exact #MSWL. Chesley, you been poking around in my brain?
#MSWL: I would be interested in a dark fantasy/horror mix. Very atmospheric with literary writing would be best
