(7/9) know that’s vague but I’ll know it when I see it).

Dystopian Future: If you have a compelling, character-driven story set in a dystopian future, I’m interested. Whether it’s the next Handmaid’s Tale or Hunger Games, I’m open to it.

For YA, I love contemporary coming of age, fantasy grounded in reality, near-future dystopia, and high-concept speculative. Psychological thrillers that push the envelope. Truly twisty mysteries. Literary ghost stories. #MSWL

I usually prefer contemporary or near-historical realism, but will sometimes consider speculative fiction, fantasy, psych thrillers, lite dystopian, literary horror, and paranormal (especially dealing with ghosts). #MSWL

near-future, high-concept SCI-FI with a literary bent, that dissects our own world more clearly through another—looking for hopeful postapocalypses, dystopian utopias, Gibsonian cyberpunk from new perspectives #mswl

Blue Ticket was thrilling and sad and just the most perfect literary/dystopian novel. The ending broke my heart... and I'd love to see more books like this in my inbox! #MSWL

My hands-down favorite YA dystopian is SCYTHE, so come at me with your clever takes on the future of death and society! I also want to see Gen-Z characters taking on a broken society in the way only they can. Give me the next CREWEL, THE GRACE YEAR, or ACROSS A STAR-SWEPT SEA.

#mswl: I'm not a fan of dystopias where the heroes know they're in a dystopia. I do like dystopias that look like utopias, especially high-tech ones (Brazil, Upload).

Worldbuilding that gets creepier the more you think about it is one of my favorites.

I'd love a hopeful near future project, an optimistic dystopian tale, something that imagines a world where everything might be broken, but there is a best of humanity that survives (I can't imagine why I want this) #MSWL 5/

It's been a while since I've done a #MSWL and I try not to b/c honestly, sometimes I don't know what I want until I see it - but I know some of y'all find these useful so here goes...

In Adult SFF #MSWL I'm partial to:
- Fresh twists & unique concepts
- I love all kinds: dystopia, post apoc, space opera, high fantasy, low, magical realism, urban, etc - but it HAS to be different than what's already out there.
- Mash ups and new takes most welcome

Speculative fiction and with a lightly dystopian angle like WILDER GIRLS and WE SET THE DARK ON FIRE. Give me something so weird here it's impossible to fit in one category. #MSWL

#overheard two 20 somethings talking about #books yesterday. Readers still want more of the same - just different? I wonder what a #dystopian, #postapocalyptic #domestic #thriller might look like? #bookslike #mswl
