I just finished WONDERLAND by @zooshka, & when I say on my #MSWL Iโ€™m looking for deeply emotional horror about family relationships, this is exactly what I want! The dread, the claustrophobia, the terror of the natural world. What a stunningly agonizing read.

I know seeing Bad Queer Lit Takes on Twitter gets really anxiety inducing for authors, so lemme tell you as someone who gets piles of requests for very specific queer recs every day: all the things you fear no one wants are wanted very badly by somebody.

My favorite novels are literary stories focused on family, relationships, sexuality, mental illness, or recovery.

In particular, stories that explore sexuality are near + dear to my heart. I needed those stories when I was a teen (and still need/love/want them today) #MSWL

I'm looking for dark, gritty or issues-driven contemporary fiction. I'm here for tricky family dynamics, generational divides, the nuances of modern relationships. I loved My Dark Vanessa, Normal People, Such A Fun Age.

I am still on the hunt for the book Iโ€™ve been dreaming about since I became an agent: a multigenerational family saga with spec elements set in the South, a Southern 100 Years of Solitude. Dream big, right?

...a historical mystery series with a slow burn romance (missed out on one I LOVED years ago and I have been searching for another one FOREVER), multigenerational women's fiction with some cool time periods and settings, middle grade with non-traditional family dynamics 3/

#MSWL Iโ€™m DESPERATELY NEEDING a YA or adult romance where a sweet couple falls in loveโ€”no insta love. I want to see their journey, whether itโ€™s f/f, m/m, f/m...love is love. I just want โค๏ธ and laughter and kindness with lots of friends and family and community.

In contemporary, I'd like to find sweet, slice-of-life stories, found family and platonic love (queer friend groups!), and stories with a strong sense of place. #MSWL
