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

I just found out I have a great uncle who was a priest with a secret family (!) that no one knew about until after he died (!!), and now all I want to read is a family saga about the fallout from that whole *waves hands* situation #mswl

I❤️the structure of @withloveonprime, which tracks a family for a year on the holidays. There's scope not only for max drama-on NYE/Valentine's-but it's also an interesting way to progress time & story arcs. I'd love to see more subs w/ unusual structures #MSWL #WritingCommunity

To start, at the moment I am only looking for MG, YA, and adult commercial and upmarket fiction. I’ll list the genres for each in the thread below. Unfortunately, I’m not the right person for adult literary fiction or nonfic, and (for now) I’m not actively looking for PBs.

Across the board (MG, YA, and adult), I’m drawn to:
-stories with a strong family element, whether that’s biological or found family
-protagonists who aren’t the best at whatever they do or The Chosen One, but who try really *really* hard, even when they screw up
