As always, I'm looking for YA across all genres.

I'm especially looking for LGBTQ+ reads and smart horror.

See (and buy!) the collected works of @Kim_Liggett @tomryanauthor and @AdamSilvera for great comps. #MSWL

I keep thinking about how badly I want to read more smart, unnerving YA horror.

I don't want gore. I want a story that makes me ask questions that I don't want an answer to. #MSWL

A horror novel called This Is Less of a Question & More of a Statement, and the entire book takes place during a Q&A panel at a conference. #MSWL

I really want to see a YA sci-fi horror novel in my @PSLiterary query box.

Like, @Kim_Liggett meets @bethrevis?

YA Event Horizon? That comp is old because I’m old. #MSWL

I want to read a good YA horror novel that captures the terror and anxiety of falling off Rainbow Road on the last lap in Mario Kart. #MSWL
