Thriller/mystery/suspense: Murder mysteries, especially with dual timelines (WHERE SECRETS LIE by Eva V. Gibson). I like more focus on character than is typical for these areas (Maureen Johnson’s TRULY DEVIOUS series) and very literary writing (I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU again).

#MSWL I’d love to see more fantasies inspired by non-western mythologies and folklore! If it could be a good fit for the Rick Riordan Presents list I’d love to see it, but also looking for the weirder or more literary or less humorous stuff too!

#MSWL While I’ll rep any genre, I am particularly drawn to fantasy, speculative, magical realism, and fabulism. I love stories that marry a fast paced plot with literary writing and strong emotions (who doesn’t, I know, sorry). A great mystery also always gets my attention.

Of course, per previous MSWLs, I’m always interested in elevating underrepresented/diverse voices. In terms of writing, I always am drawn to literary, but am open to more commercial as long as it has strong characters—it’s all about the characters for me!

I haven't done a #MSWL in a while, so you know what time it is. Here's what I'm looking for these days. Agents, holla at me. 1/10

Literary Fiction! I'm always on the hunt for beautiful, lyrical, haunting prose. Sentences that will stay with me for a long time. But I also want these books to have plots that move the story along, that have heart and wit and sharp observations about the world around us. 2/10

I'll also never tire of literary suspense - especially that which pulls the curtain back on a new community or subculture, or, as above, has escapist elements. Last year's faves in this space: ALL THAT'S LEFT UNSAID, MORE THAN YOU'LL EVER KNOW and THE CARETAKERS.

I suppose it’s that time again. A new #MSWL thread for the new year! 🤞🏻 pic.twitter.com/wIlpiwFUSl

Let’s start with literary fiction, because that’s what I’m the most eager to read as 2023 begins. Contemporary voices, unusual storytelling structures, complicated platonic and romantic relationships, upmarket genre novels. I want beautiful prose with a splashy concept. #MSWL

FICTION: I am open to ALL genres. I gravitate toward books by women, for women, whether commercial, upmarket, or literary. My taste is eclectic: I adore feel good stories filled with levity and humor *and* dark novels that unsettle and disturb.
