Across the board: I want stories that challenge me -- that shift my perspective, bring me to new places and into new mindsets. #mswl
In YA, my #mswl is simple: great voices. I want stories that surprise me. Stories that are different, maybe even a little weird.
#mswl -- Still love standalone, literary MG. Think Cynthia Kadohata, Rebecca Stead, Gary Schmidt. petejknapp.com/post/124332260…
#mswl - Family stories. MG, YA, adult. Dysfunctional or super close or unusual or that have drifted over the years. I want to read them all.
#mswl - smart general fiction for adults. Think ME BEFORE YOU, THE LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS, TO BE SUNG UNDERWATER, THE AGE OF MIRACLES

Top of my #mswl right now is compulsively readable, voice-driven adult fiction across genres. Looking to fall for an unforgettable voice.
#mswl -- I am still looking for grounded sci-fi suspense stories like EX MACHINA, THE MARTIAN, etc. Query me!
...and some spooky MG, for that matter. petejknapp.com/post/124319340… #mswl
And of course, still looking to find some YA horror. petejknapp.com/post/125214812… #mswl
#mswl -- also always looking for contemporary YA with a speculative twist. petejknapp.com/post/124317810…
I'm excited to find some commercial adult fiction this year, especially speculative suspense and thrillers. petejknapp.com/post/128934360… #mswl
