We’d also love to see some dual timeline novels involving secrets and objects from the past, or gothic settings with hints of the supernatural – think MEXICAN GOTHIC and THE FAMILIARS.

As always with this time of year, send me all your witches. I’d love an adult or gothic, adult horror, and/or adult light fantasy with an unforgettable & unique setting, a fresh take or system of magic, and gorgeous writing. Queer always a plus.

What I would really find special would be a destination horror. For example, the Island of the Dolls in Mexico City would be an amazing setting. Give me more that the typical US spots. The darker, creepier, and more gothic it is...the better.

#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.👻🎃🪦 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.
