I'll never not love & rep Children's books, but I am hungry for Adult titles in the up market genre-adjacent spaces; Suspense, Mystery, Speculative, SFF. Recent (to me) favorites include Marlon James, Lucy Foley, Katherine Arden, Kate Racculia, Britt Bennett, N.K. Jemisin. #MSWL

#MSWL: SF/F is not my thing. Open to grounded speculative with strong crossover appealโ€”ordinary with one small or bizarre twist vs. magical/fabulist. NOTHING TO SEE HERE more than NIGHT CIRCUS, THE CITY WE BECAME more than BLACK LEOPARD RED WOLF. No dystopian or time travel.

Writers: I want all your quirky coming of age (adult) novels. If itโ€™s slipstream, speculative, weird, dreamy, send it my way. I want witches. I would like to see anything that gets weird in similar ways to Daisy Johnson. If it feels like a punch to my face, great! #mswl

In speculative fiction, I'm looking more for folklore, magical realism, surrealism, cozy fantasy, light fantasy, and atmospheric fantasy with lush world building and gorgeous prose, than traditional high/ epic fantasy. #MSWL
