#MSWL: Adult literary fiction inspired by Frances Hodgson Burnett's A Little Princess (but anti-imperialist). I have no idea how one would execute that premise, but if you do, send it to me.

Accessible literary and upmarket reading group. Beautiful writing with something to say. A novel that digs into an issue or theme and introduces me to nuanced, unforgettable characters, all structured around a plot that keeps me turning the pages. #mswl

So here it goes, a full #MSWL, as I am currently reading and looking for new authors to add to my roster! 🧵

1. Literary fiction in English/Spanish/Catalan. I am usually more interested in female, non-binary writers, also authors who adopt English as their literary language. It can be challenging and experimental; also accessible. Looking for stunning writing. #MSWL

I would love to find an expansive family saga, upmarket/literary, written in English, but set somewhere that is not the US and not the UK. #MSWL querymanager.com/query/MariaCar…

- speculative fiction
(I prefer grounded, literary sci-fi + fantasy. no secondary worlds, but rather our world steeped in liminal magic and/or technology. anything creepy, toothy, gritty, strange, something that sends a shiver down your spine.)

in terms of GENRES and NARRATIVES, I love:

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

first, I'm someone who's always been gripped by VOICE, WRITING STYLE, and PROSE. so I'm looking for:

- anything in the book club, upmarket, literary spaces
- lush, poetic writing
- deep and intricate world/lore-building (when applicable)

Send me adult + #YA literary thrillers and horror. I am a suspense junkie, who loves to be scared, and I can go very, very dark--except please no violence against children or rape. But blood and gore are fine.

As are creepy dolls and bad romance (but maybe not together?).
