I'd love to see a romance novel that's spooky or a little off kilter or dark. Something like MORBIDLY YOURS or LOVE IN THE TIME OF SERIAL KILLERS. #mswl

I know I'm late to the party, but I've just finished One Day, and it wrecked me. And so, naturally, I want more of this in my inbox! Sweeping romance with big feelings, true connection(!), and maybe some tears thrown in. #mswl

My current #MSWL . I am in particular looking for YA Thrillers, Romance, Boarding School settings, and Graphic Novels. On the Adult side, I'd love to see more Popular Science and Narrative Nonfiction, as well as Romance, and Thrillers...but there is more! 😎

- genre bending & blending across the board!
- fantasy and horror in the same vein as YA: gripping, dark, cerebral, exciting
- near future sci-fi with alternate/parallel realities, androids, and science that feels real
- queer romance with commercial hooks!

I am a certified EmHen girly! If you can meld swoon-worthy romance, beautiful prose, and, crucially, the exploration of the real (emotional and tangible) issues that young women face like Emily Henry does, I’m all in. I want books that earnestly believe in love the way EmHen’s do

I am often sent the more closed door romance novels (which I do love!) but I'd love to see stuff with some higher spice levels 🌶️🌶️🌶️

I still need great plot, pacing and characterisation alongside it (obviously)! I love Emily Henry, Tessa Bailey and Talia Hibbert as some inspo

Some queer #MSWL ! First, stories about marginalized and queer people going abroad and finding themselves. Or queer romance featuring equestrians. Any tennis centered queer books PLEASE?! And a general call out for trans stories from trans authors.
