I’ve been especially loving books with a genre twist lately -- PORTRAIT OF A THIEF comes to mind as a great example of what I’m looking for, as does COUNTERFEIT or LUCKY. I’m a sucker for a charming con artist, or an intricately plotted heist. Bonus if it makes me laugh!

smart, beautifully written heists, cons, and scams where the personal stakes are sky-high, especially if art and culture plays a big role—PORTRAIT OF A THIEF by @gracedli is a favorite (and for context, @ScamGoddessPod is my most-listened-to podcast)

Another #MSWL from @EmilyKaitlinnn!

"I'm looking for heists, competitions, and assassin novels in MG/YA/Crossover Adult. With the vibes of Uncharted, The Mummy, or The Inheritance Games. This could be magical realism or fabulism, fantasy, or even really interesting contemp"

Everything we teach people not to do? Do it. Assassins. Heists. Trained thieves. Undercover guards. All of it.

Spies? Start em young. Better yet? Put it in a competition. There are trials? Give them to me. A game to break a curse? Yup. Heists set against a clock? Throw it at me.

#MSWL Still (forever) seeking voicey female-fronted thrillers. Less domestic/psych suspense fiction (unless they've got a killer Gone Girl-style twist), more heists, fights, action/adventure goodness. Would love a female Reacher equivalent. Humor also much appreciated.

I love a good haunting and a good heist, always, and the shadowy place where horror, fantasy, and romance kiss. I’m not big on chosen ones, magical rebellions, elemental magic, or stories centering warriors, but I'm open to being surprised by the right manuscript.

✨ contemporary and well-researched historical queer romance, with pining and butterflies and swoony tension and steaminess and a REALLY strong hook
✨ books that celebrate books, both MG and adult
✨ heists, cons, scams, the more glam the better (no cishet man protags)

ragtag team-ups and heists! some of my favourite brooklyn nine-nine episodes are the halloween heist episodes, and while the heist in six of crows was the least memorable part of that book, it was still there amongst all the character-building and relationships
