Been reading a lot of my old Thoroughbred books lately... and they reminded me that I would LOVE a memoir from a female jockey! #MSWL

This was a lovely, lyrical nature memoir about bees and life in general and I loved it! Now I want to keep bees in my backyard too! #MSWL

My husband went to school for wildlife biology, studying birds of prey and since then I've been obsessed with raptors and owls of all kinds! This was a gripping, icy memoir about finding and saving these beautiful creatures! The perfect nature memoir. #MSWL

โ€œYA non-fiction: Memoir, essay collections, you name it. Queer There & Everywhere is probably my favorite YA non-fic title in recent memory, and a great example of what Iโ€™d like to see.โ€ @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

โ€œWith memoir, I love a story that feels like Iโ€™m reading a collection of essays. @JamesTateHill's BLIND MAN'S BLUFF and @m_scribe's WHAT WE DIDN'T EXPECT, an anthology of essays are two books I worked on that fit in that space.โ€ @ericsmithrocks #MSWL ericsmithrocks.com/mswl

Honestly, I wish I could be an agent for every author in the world. Keep flooding my inbox and Iโ€™ll keep reading as much as I can.

Iโ€™m still looking for anything horror. Like seriously scare me. WAY MORE LGBTQ from romance to memoir to coming out. And running!

AFTERSHOCKS by @NadiaOwusu1 is officially my favorite memoir everโ€”ย #amquerying writers this is the perfect example of how to share stories with specificity, vulnerability, and, of course, beautiful writing. And I love the world history woven into the protagonist's journey. #MSWL

Finishing Home Baked by Alia Volz makes me hungry (no pun intended) for more memoirs of remarkable people, extraordinary lives and eccentric stories. Especially from diverse backgrounds. #mswl

(Memoir continued) I love books with humor and interesting perspectives, and enjoy a big personality or narration to go with the contents of the memoir. I do not want conservative or conservative leaning memoirs. #mswl
