Beyond that, some general things I gravitate towards when reading: unreliable narrators, strong sense of place, atmosphere, lush settings (in fantasy AND contemporary/realistic fiction), strong emotional resonance, twists, surprises, literary/lyrical writing. #MSWL

I also LOVE horror in general! Horror with social commentary & twists on common tropes, like EAT YOUR HEART OUT & WHAT WE HARVEST. Atmospheric--all the dark, creepy vibes (strange small towns & dark forests never get old for me!). Beautiful literary writing is always a plus.

Does everyone have a friendship break up that they are low key still upset about years later or

#MSWL I would LOVE to rep a literary novel that follows a slow-burn friendship disintegration from the POV of each friend. Imagine Fates & Furies but for friendship. If you're writing it, get in touch! (Friend break ups are the most hellish worst.)

#MSWL Brilliantly crafted, tightly plotted mysteries where the writing is as satisfying as the twists. This can range from more commercial—Riley Sager, Lucy Foley, Paula Hawkins—to the more literary end of the spectrum—Tana French, Megan Abbott, Gillian Flynn. Character is key.

Also worth mentioning that I’m fascinated with both chess and labyrinths – anything that involves either (or both!) will definitely be of interest, whether genre or more literary #mswl

In upmarket fiction I'm looking for: relationship stories, coming of age stories, mysteries. My tastes in literary fiction are still quite plot-driven. #mswl

For YA, I love contemporary coming of age, fantasy grounded in reality, near-future dystopia, and high-concept speculative. Psychological thrillers that push the envelope. Truly twisty mysteries. Literary ghost stories. #MSWL
