^^ and final evergreen reminder that I'm fairly genre-agnostic, so if you're not sure, feel free to give me a shot anyway! 📚📚

Grounded fantasy/ genre! I can read books like THE BEAR AND THE NIGHTINGALE, ADDIE LARUE, SERPENT & DOVE, or THE TEN THOUSAND DOORS OF JANUARY again and again -- anything with a lush setting, a little (or a lot) of romance, and high stakes has my name all over it.

Upmarket fiction! If it’s something you would read in a book club, send it my way. I loooved THE GREAT CIRCLE by Maggie Shipstead, and would be over the moon to find something similar! Taylor Jenkins Reid, Kate Quinn, Gail Honeyman, Kristin Hannah are other favorites.

I’m also actively looking for more romance! I’m an absolute fiend for Bridgerton and need something light, witty, and escapist to tide me over until season 2. I’m a huge fan of Talia Hibbert and Emily Henry, and recently loved ONE TO WATCH, THE EX HEX, and THE LOVE HYPOTHESIS.

Speaking of humor… I’m looking for anything with a darkly funny sensibility. Ottessa Moshfegh is an all-time fave, along with books like THE NEW ME, YOU, or MY SISTER THE SERIAL KILLER, and TV shows like White Lotus.

I’m beyond OBSESSED with the TV show Yellowjackets -- would love love love to find something that brings the scares alongside a wicked sense of humor! This goes for thrillers, too -- I’d love to find the next Lucy Foley, Megan Abbott, or Jessica Knoll.

New year, new #mswl! Looking to kick off 2022 by signing some awesome new clients. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of what I’m on the hunt for (for all age ranges!):

Horror! As if 2021 wasn’t scary enough, I want something that gives me chills in the new year! Recent faves include MEXICAN GOTHIC, THE ONLY GOOD INDIANS, THE SANITORIUM, and anything by Riley Sager. If it feels like the movies Midsommar or It Follows, I want to read it!
