Thinking of how much of my grandmother was the matriarch of my family, I’d love to see a sweet/funny middle grade novel (any genre) with a substantial grandparent-grandchild dynamic!

I'd love to see MG books about growing up along the lines of Turning Red, or a layered family story like Encanto — contemporary or with a magical element! #MSWL

I want MG/YA/Adult family dynasties with family members who would absolutely commit crimes “for the family” and need therapy but instead just like murder and luxury

Vibe: This Is Us episode where they do family therapy. Huge family saga, lots of drama, but emotionally intelligent and everyone loves each other. I cry the whole time.

I just finished Lessons in Chemistry and it’s my entire #mswl —feminism, powerful women, quirky, found family, dogs, love, loss, laughter, tears, brilliant writing and the sense I never want to put this book down.

P.S. Yes to the #MSWL

Although I’m also very eager to find happy, funny stories with strong family relationships that, while not perfect, are loving and healthy for the most part.

But I also love light. I'm not taking on many new cozy authors these days unless you've elevated the cozy like The Maid. Another with a strong sense of family and more complicated and layered story then typical cozies #MSWL

I like dark and twisty but not gory. Suspense with a real edge. I tend not to lean to horror, but love dark characters with dark secrets. Like Razorblade Tears or Black Cake. Family secrets coming to light are a big hit for me. #MSWL

My areas of expertise are upmarket and literary fiction, women's fiction, mystery, suspense and thriller. I love books w/ strong family focus (found, friends, those you're born with) and home. Even in mystery I love those connections #MSWL

From @BookEndsJessica:

"Upmarket fiction about family, friendship, found family--especially focusing on marginalized characters. Recent reads I wish I’d repped: YINK, WHERE IS YOUR HUZBAND, A HISTORY OF WILD PLACES, THE LAST THING HE TOLD ME."

In my inbox everyday looking for an exciting novel. I'd love an upmarket mystery with complex characters and a hooky crime, or family drama, or something that just catches me by surprise. Here's what I read in 2022. I did not dislike 1 yet. (titles in next tweet) #MSWL

Sweeping multi-generational family saga set in another country with an empowered heroine - exploring themes of cultural identity, family conflict, history and motherhood. Would love a modern spin on it either through gender or contemporary themes #MSWL
