#MSWL: Gothic. Give me YA, Adult, anything that speaks to the atmosphere of du Maurier, Jackson, Hill, Purcell, or Waters. Looking for the perfect cross between feminine and terrifying.

Current mood: MAJOR Halloween vibes.๐Ÿ‘ป๐ŸŽƒ๐Ÿชฆ I want all things spooky, eerie, haunted. My favorite type of read at the moment is Emily Carroll's fairytale-esque horror graphic novels and Mexican Gothic. I devoured Netflix's Haunting of Hill House and can't wait for the next. #mswl

I'm also looking for that book-club/psych thriller middle-ground, in the vein of Liane Moriarty, where there are lots of dark secrets and surprising twists and characters that could be someone you know.

In historical fiction, I would love something witchy and gothic. My taste tends towards under-represented voices from history, rather than a regency court romance. I'd love historical fiction by black and Asian voices. I love historical +mystery, or historical +love story.

Really in the mood for something gothic as hell, full of rot and ruin, a slow-burn romance, twists and turns, and BIPOC protagonists. #MSWL

This post reminds me that I need one of you YA authors to write a creepy gothic retelling of the story of green ribbon girl. Maybe a graphic novel?!? #mswl
