Family

On the adult side, I would love, love, love to find some multi-generational family stories. Think Fluornoy’s The Turner House, Sullivan’s Maine, Urrea’s The House of Broken Angels, Gyasi’s Homegoing, etc. #MSWL

Day 21 of #25DaysofMSWL: in light of today's personal family news, I want books that deal with mother-daughter relationships. Good ones, bad ones. #MSWL

BBC drama #MrsWilson was just brilliant on all levels. If you are writing a novel with family drama anything like this, send it in! #MSWL #amwriting katenashlit.co.uk

This is a #MSWL I like to put out there every now and then. I want an upmarket women’s fiction where a family member is on trial for murder and the protagonist(s) don’t know whether he did it or not. I want to see the meat of the emotions in that unthinkable situation.

#mswl: historical (1900s), romcom, immigrant stories, diverse voices, high society, light suspense or speculative hook, campus setting, southern, complex female friendships, family dramas, gothic, nostalgia. Upmarket with commercial hook. Agented only.

DYING (ha) for more YA horror in my inbox, especially speculative/family-centric/this-monster-is-a-metaphor in the vein of THE BABADOOK or HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE #mswl

Day 3 of #25DaysofMSWL: THE THIRTEENTH TALE meets THE LIGHT BETWEEN WORLDS. Both books are beautifully written, and I love the idea of uncovering family secrets. #MSWL

My number one wish list item right now is heartfelt, voice- and relationship-driven contemporary MG. Recent faves like IVY ABERDEEN, LOVE LIKE SKY, and FRONT DESK gave me families, friendships, and crushes that felt achingly, oh so real. If you have it, I want it! 😊 #MSWL

I am currently reading BIRD BOX (the SCARIEST book ever omfg) and obsessively rewatching The Haunting of Hill House and I would literally murder a grandma to get an Adult or YA horror that exploits family dynamics #mswl
