is it weird if I say I want to read a speculative novel, similar to the evolution of the Goncharov meme, where a collective unreality is collaborated on by a wide and disparate community, until eventually the lines between what's true and what isn't are thoroughly blurred #mswl

#MSWL: Adult literary fiction inspired by Frances Hodgson Burnett's A Little Princess (but anti-imperialist). I have no idea how one would execute that premise, but if you do, send it to me.

Please note that I am not the right person to represent works of non-fiction, literary fiction, short stories, erotica, screenplays, poetry, hard SFF (speculative is fine though) or anything younger than middle grade children’s fiction.

Stories with talking points, that make me think or force my friends into reading too so I can talk about it with them! My all-time faves are Khaled Hosseini, Matt Haig and Mark Haddon.

πŸ₯Ά Thriller πŸšͺ

I’m always looking for anything hooky within thriller for both adults and young adults. Locked room thrillers, like The Sanatorium and The Guest List, are especially welcome.

πŸ€” Psychological Thriller 🧠

I’m looking for psychological thriller and domestic suspense which is twisty and has a unique hook. I love an unreliable narrator and the feeling of not knowing who to trust. Shock, surprise and confuse me in the best ways!

🏰 Historical Fiction/Saga πŸ›‘

I prefer HF that is character-driven rather than action or β€˜battlefield’ heavy and I have a particular penchant for WW2 historical fiction (think Markus Zusak and Heather Morris).

Morally grey, complex and flawed characters are a plus!

🦊 Cosy Crime πŸ•΅οΈ

I’d absolutely love cosy crime from *any* period, whether contemporary like Janice Hallett and Richard Osman, traditional Golden Age murder mystery, or historical crime. The more suspects and red herrings, the better!

I'll add on more to this thread whenever I can, but that should be a good start, hey? but tl;drβ€” I love stories that make us question the world and how we understand it. I love a frisson. I love the things that go bump in the night. I love writing that melts on the tongue.
