On the speculative side of YA, give me a world or a circumstance I’ve never seen before. I love high-stakes, plot-driven fantasy and sci-fi, where the world enhances the story more than is the focus.
🌪️Stories set in the near future, dealing with the climate emergency (think THIS FRAGILE EARTH)
🌷 Strong romantic subplots!
👩👩👧👦Strong family bonds!
I will be looking for adult romance mostly (every category), but also science-fiction and horror! Strong voices and unusual settings are the best way to pull me in. #MSWL

Maybe I’ve been reading too much news lately, but… #MSWL: SF & fantasy where characters’ core political/policy positions evolve over the course of the story, not because they’ve discovered a *conspiracy,* but because they’ve educated themselves about communities and their needs.
These are just a few specifics, but I’m open to any sff! I love grand world-building and multiple POVs. Anything with the feel of a Robin Hobb novel or THE BLACK COAST. I can’t wait to get reading! #MSWL
Multiverses and space opera! I love expansive worlds with a close knit cast of characters, like NOPHEK GLOSS. I love the strange and alien, horror in space, and found family tropes. Another recent favourite of mine was THE SPACE BETWEEN WORLDS. #MSWL
- YA historical featuring a lesser known historical period or experience
- YA sci fi that blends genres to share human stories through a fresh lens
- Narratives told in unique formats, such as nonlinear, epistolary, etc. (5/6)
