I am always into historical fantasy or fantasy that's inspired by a historical setting/context, esp non-Western; recent faves in this space are SHE WHO BECAME THE SUN & THE UNBROKEN. I love historical fantasy w/ Western settings that center marginalized voices eg Zen Cho's books

MIDDLE GRADE—I’d love to find more middle grade. I love mysteries, historical, magic-tinged, verse novels. Some of my favorites: NO ORDINARY THING, THE ELEPHANT’S GIRL, BROWN GIRL DREAMING, and THE DOLLHOUSE MURDERS. #MSWL

Some of my #MSWL: a historical in a tight social group (e.g. Viking War band, a WW1 trench or Arctic exploration), retro crime (50s to 70s), historical with light touch fantasy (gods/the supernatural) or a Cold War thriller set in East Germany #amwriting & #amquerying

YA historical featuring a trans/NB mc w/the gorgeous evocative prose of The Last Night at the Telegraph Club. A sense of angst, discovery, desire, a bit of complexity. If I'd had TLNATTC when I was younger, I'd have understood myself earlier. I want that for trans/NB teens #mswl

Historical: I prefer stories set in the nearer-past, and stories set in lesser-told times in history that have a human-interest element alongside the education (HER REBEL HIGHNESS by Diana Ma).

Horror, YA & adult - To me, the best horror has social commentary (WHAT WE HARVEST, EAT YOUR HEART OUT). I love horror blended with fantasy or fairy tales. I never get tired of creepy forests & small towns with secrets, whether it’s a current setting, historical, or high fantasy!

Romance—way more of it! Rom-Coms so funny that make me snort out my coffee, historicals with so much tension I want to pull my hair out, adventure/caper romance that takes me on a nailbiting ride or presents me with a mystery to solve. #MSWL
