Upmarket speculative fiction. Grounded fantasy, magical realism, retellings of fairy/folk tales, horror. The majority of my favourite books of all time live in this genre. #MSWL

Explorations of mental health topics. Deep and dark glimpses at a character’s struggles. Stories that accept and celebrate how ridiculous life can be when your brain is wired in certain ways. #MSWL

Coming-of-age stories. Child and teen protagonists. Novels exploring childhood, friendship, family drama. Characters realizing how pivotal life moments completely fucked them up. #MSWL

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

this is maybe a little specific but i'd really love to find some historical fiction or nonfiction about the AIDS epidemic and the activism / community care / political radicalism that organized around it/as a result of it #mswl

@BigKidBookworm Hi Emelie! How do you feel about character-driven, light sci fi in MG?
Replying to @chrissydvs10

Hi there! In general, I'm not the best fit for sci-fi, but there have been exceptions! If you've read my #mswl and feel like your book fits my tastes, feel free to query me so I can read a sample of your work.

I'd like a little bit of horror, too. It needs to be something speculative - no thrillers please! Think supernatural/cosmic horror.

I especilly want: Fantasy romance! (Not paranormal romance - needs to be fantasy!) Near-future adult sci-fi. Epic fantasy based on non-European settings. Space opera with non-European/American influences!

I am always looking for adult and YA SFF! That includes pretty much any speculative fiction you can think of, although I prefer my sci-fi on the heavier side. (So not really near-future stuff that's "just" dystopian without awesome tech etc.)
