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

Current #MSWL wishlist:

❤️ YA/Adult Rom Com— high concept and swoony

✨ Magical stories with fun, pacey plots - MG/YA/Adult

If your project doesn’t fall under these two categories but it is still uplifting and joyful, I’d love to see it!

#MSWL Lightning Round:

--MG with a unique hook and a focus on friendship

--f/f YA that explores the lines between friendship and romance

--Adult SFF that makes me cry
