When the seasons start to turn, I find myself reaching for the comfort of a good classic. I also enjoy exploring new ground with a good retelling. Think along the lines of The Bear and the Nightingale, Spinning Silver, The Deathless Girls and, of course, the iconic Bridget Jones.

I'd also love to see #ownvoices Latin-America-inspired mythological fantasy. It could be contemporary, historical, or a fresh retelling.

Anything featuring my favourite animal gets bonus attention.

In YA I want rich world building with strong and clear magic system and am open to romance as central part of the plot. I love retellings of classic stories, realistic fiction with mystery, thriller, heist/spies and untrustworthy characters
