Here's a bit of an overview of my #MSWL . Comedies! Hilarious family drama and/or funny situations characters get themselves into. Anything that makes me laugh out loud! If itโ€™s got a comedic element with a strong female, BIPOC or LGBTQIA+ protagonist, PLEASE! #amqueryng

Current reads: Crying in H Mart (I donโ€™t represent NF, but I love big feelings and complicated mother/daughter relationships), and The Ministry of Time, which is simply exceptional. Sharp, funny, and so original #mswl

A personal reading update in case itโ€™s helpful to see what Iโ€™m into right now! I adored How To End a Love Story & Funny Story. Iโ€™ve loved Yulin Kuang since her YouTube days, and her debut is funny, romantic, & emotional. And, of course, EmHen remains the romcom queen. #mswl

#PB Timeless picture books, especially w/ a new format or approach. Unexplored topics, new perspectives, exceptional writing, true-to-life characters. Kid-facing, non-didactic, empowering, authentic, award-worthy.
Also fun, quirky, and funny picture books!

Always voice driven, often funny, sometimes heartbreaking... Characters are key for me! I can fix a plot. ๐Ÿค“ I am not great with genre fiction, though there are exceptions if the writing is irresistible to me.

For MG I'm interested in finding a high concept fantasy adventure, or a funny heart-warming narrative. I'm always on the look out for writing from underrepresented voices and so please do get in touch with your stories. 2/3

Bad romance.

Make it so bad, it's funny.

I want to cringe (and relate only too well).

#Horror Novels that explore personal difficulties (caring for an aging parent, feeling like an outsider, addiction, grief, etc.) via a speculative lens.

Or funny-yet-scary #Horror stories that are pure entertainment.

Gore is great. Bring on the blood! ๐Ÿฉธ3/?

#MSWL Remember the movie Warm Bodies? Well I want that but with Vampires instead of Zombies. Not pining Edward and submissive Bella, give me funny, regretful but also okay with himself vamp meets kick-butt heroine who's his match because she outmatches him.

#MSWL An MG ghost story that leans heavily into the fun and funny and not the scary. While I'm always open to MG horror, I'm looking not so much for chills in this wishlist item.

GN: absurd, funny MG; fantasy/spec like This Was Our Pact; YA like The Prince and the Dressmaker, Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up..., Genderqueer, Go with the Flow, The Magic Fish, beautiful coming-of-age like This One Summer that lingers w/you but make it all gay gay gay. 5/6
