I am dying to find the next big speculative novel. Where is the next STATION ELEVEN? The next NEVER LET ME GO? 99% of editors I lunch with beg me to send them this! Authors, please send my way because my sub list is already ready to go!! 🙏 #mswl
So excited about THE SAFE PLACE and pleased for the lovely @WhatAnnaWrote! This brilliant book aligns with SO much of my #mswl: it’s suspenseful, atmospheric, deeply unsettling w/hints of horror and has one element that I ALWAYS ask for but can’t reveal as it’s part of the twist!
Hillary Jacobson @hillaryjacobsonUltimately, I will always be on the lookout for writing that examines the unique burdens and pleasures of the modern female experience, as well as #ownvoices and underrepresented narratives. #mswl
Memoir! This is the #1 thing I am looking for in 2019. Give me your stories that are so unbelievable they must be true, that are suspenseful, heartbreaking, dark, feminist, and topical. EDUCATED, HOW TO MURDER YOUR LIFE & SMALL FRY were some of my favorites last year. #mswl
Similarly, I’d love a dark psychological thriller with hints of horror, like Iain Reid’s I’M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS. Or something inspired by real world events like Karen Dionne’s THE MARSH KING’S DAUGHTER. The darker and twistier you can go, the better. #mswl
Hillary Jacobson @hillaryjacobsonI finally got around to putting together a list of what I’m dying to see show up in my inbox this year. I decided to highlight some favorite reads from 2018 that inform what I’m looking for in 2019. Thread! #mswl
I’d love to see an unsettling and atmospheric novel of suspense like Christine Mangan’s TANGERINE. This book made me SO uncomfortable and SO angry and that’s exactly how I want to feel! #mswl
Oooh #MSWL day! Some random things I’d love to see: a modern day VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, a utopian YA, GHOSTED w/ millennial age characters or in YA, psychological suspense that borrows from the news/2018 & a speculative thriller.
REALLY hungry right now for smart, feminist fiction that has something interesting to say about society + a propulsive plot. THE FEMALE PERSUASION by @MegWolitzer or YOUNG JANE YOUNG by #GabrielleZevin are perfect examples of what I'm looking for. #mswl !!!
