A few specific #mswl bits I'm on the hunt for at the moment: character-driven sci-fi (THE LAST WATCH), gothic horror (THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE), immersive mystery (Attica Locke's Highway 59 series), and journalistic nonfiction (Patrick Radden Keefe is a favorite).

Kristin Temple 🎈 is catching up on subs @_kristintempleSo many good ship dynamics on my timeline. I cannot draw, but may I present my favorites:
- friends to enemies to lovers
- stabby + sunshine
- loud, social one with trauma + quiet, intimidating one who’s secretly a sweetheart
- two whole idiots
Please send me all of your stabby + sunshine books, please and thank you. #mswl
HBO Max @hbomaxIYKYK, Carol. #Superintelligence premieres November 26 on HBO Max.
I realize the vagueness of this #mswl, but I adore Melissa McCarthy with my whole being and I'd love to see some subs featuring protagonists that live with the same kind of heart, humor, and joy.

#MSWL for my NF writing friends. I am always, always open to stories about food and drink, especially those with a bit of a quirk to them like this!

New Gothic Review @newgothicreviewIn Trinidad, La Diablesse is a old crone who disguises herself as a beautiful woman to ensnare and kill travelers on the road. She’s always dressed in a old costume-like gown. However, she has one normal and one hoof leg, which gives her away. #FolkloreThursday @FolkloreThurs pic.twitter.com/1vojf15YJ0
Suleikha Snyder @suleikhasnyderI want one of my fellow South Asian authors to pen a cozy mystery series starring elderly desi aunties. Think of the punny title possibilities! CHAI AND PUNISHMENT. CHAAT THROUGH THE HEART. MASALA MOST FOUL.
