Feels a bit like tweeting into the void, but before this bird app fully tanks I would really love it if someone sent me a mystery/suspense/thriller with some Mare of Easttown vibes. #MSWL

Mystery #mswl: Golden Age inspired cozy-leaning (with modern sensibilities)... yes please! Make me think of Christie or Marsh or (newer!) Osman and I'll be over the moon.

YA will be a hard sell for me. Although, I still love any game element or competition. Mystery in the vein of TRULY DEVIOUS and INHERITANCE GAMES is high on my list. Also, historical fantasy such as AND I DARKEN. #MSWL

Historical Fic #mswl: an unseen avenue into a popular historical moment (a job, a place, a person we haven't seen before giving new insight into a time we're maybe familiar with). Dual timeline, mystery/Gothic-leaning, female-driven all delicious bonuses

Adult:
-BIPOC-led mysteries and thrillers, especially those with romantic and cozy *elements* even if you may not consider them fully cozy. e.g. there are dogs. there is a bakery. there is a fluffy tooth-rotting romance
-again, more BIPOC in the great outdoors

MG and YA:
-mysteries, family dramas, tearjerkers w happy endings (especially autumn- and holiday-centric this time of year!)
-more BIPOC in the great outdoors
-really strong voices with messy feelings

Evergreen #mswl: character-driven mystery/thriller which leads me one way and then springs a trapdoor of a twist (ala Brianna Labuskes, Ruth Ware, Riley Sager, etc)
