I love dark crime thrillers, literary horror, suspense, complex espionage tales, genre mash-ups, whether they feature female or male protagonists.

MG/YA #MSWL :
☑️ Horror
☑️ SFF (especially afro-futurism & magical realism variety)
☑️ Mysteries/Thrillers (would love some chilling psychological thrillers)
☑️ Historicals with a twist (spec, queer, mystery, etc.)

in terms of GENRES and NARRATIVES, I love:

- dark academia
- horror
- gothic, esp. regional gothic
- character-led literary fiction
- historical + alternate history, particularly 19th and 20th century and particularly focused on international, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA+ stories
