While I'm at it, it would ALSO be great to read a super smart, deviously plotted domestic suspense or psych thriller. #mswl

At the top of my April #mswl:

-middle grade with a crisp, authentic voice
-YA Contemporary with a big hook
-Adult suspense or psych thrillers

I’d love to see more domestic suspense, psychological thrillers, and creepy thriller/horror in the vein of Lauren Beukes! #mswl

#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 psychological thriller that *isn't* about a woman who might be crazy/imagining the whole thing

--Adult SFF that makes me cry

A few uber specific #mswl requests:

-middle grade set in CA

Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspieller

that might not seem like a ton, but when you consider how many genres I represent across multiple age categories, it is a LOT

When I open to queries again in September, I hope to continue receiving YA Fantasy (because I love it) but I also hope I see more

☻ Middle Grade Fantasy
☻ YA Contemporary
☻ Adult SFF
☻ Adult Psych Thrillers

#mswl

-a compulsively readable story of a young woman's quest to overcome her religious upbringing

-an edge-of-your seat thriller about a daughter's quest to avenge her mother's death

- a heartrending (space) war epic about a doomed adventurer's desire to avoid his own birth

Writers, this is my forever #MSWL-- I'd like to read a mystery or a thriller set in a SFF world. I love genre-bending spec fic!

Lauren’s the Worst (preorder now💁🏻‍♀️) @laurenspieller · 17 Nov 2017

Good morning! I would love to see an adult SFF project with a thriller plot. Murder, mayhem, heists--something exciting that MOVES, set inside an immersive speculative world. #MSWL

I'm also looking for Gillian Flynn/Tana French/Lisa Lutz-esq thrillers, especially written by #ownvoices writers. #MSWL

Lauren’s the Worst (preorder now💁🏻‍♀️) @laurenspieller · 12 Sep 2017

Adult #MSWL: I'm still looking for a dark, supernatural thriller in the vein of Lauren Beukes. I'd also love a hilarious fantasy like ROOK.
