Writers! I am craving adult books. Send me your contemporary romance + romcoms, your suspense and thrillers, your horror + SFF, and your non-fic as long as it has a platform! I’m also very interested in reading genre bending books, so send those too! #mswl

3. RomCom - Adult or YA. I want laugh out loud, swoony, sexy, joyful reads. I loved RWRB and The Hating Game on the Adult side, To All the Boys and Gentleman's Guide on the YA side. But really, I'm happy to read anything that's truly Rom AND Com. #mswl

2. Adult thrillers/suspense: I like stories w/ top notch characterization + a slow burn, and also stories that are gripping page turners that I finish in one sitting. A few favorites: Ruth Ware, Rhiannon Navin, Wendy Heard, Gillian Flynn, Danya Kukafka, Oyinkan Braithwaite #mswl

1. Adult Horror: I want books that have something to SAY--about our present, our past, our future. Feminist/anti-colonialist stories are close to my heart, but I'm open to anything that can be described as "smart + terrifying." I'm also open to grounded fantasy w/ horror elements
