…returning to nature & to ourselves.

I will always be drawn to international stories and settings - what is unfamiliar (& uncomfortable!) to a Western reader.

I don’t tend to rep high fantasy, but love magic & a speculative hook.

Every kind of love, please.

Today's #MSWL item is VERY specific:

I want whip-smart absurdist OR speculative literary fiction that acts as satirical or hyperbolic commentary on the oddly accepted parts of culture and society.
Eg: Kevin Wilson's NOTHING TO SEE HERE or Jessamine Chan's SCHOOL FOR GOOD MOTHERS

- near future speculative, where Earth is *almost* the same, but changes reflect and comment on our current social, political, and environmental trajectory.
- novels in verse that explore the beauty and darkness kids face daily
- NONFICTION NONFICTION NONFICTION

I love a speculative twist and will always be in for a bit of magic. I’m looking for things like Addie Larue, Jane the Virgin, and Extraordinary. I also love a non-horror ghost story, where the ghosts have larger meaning. Give me Hill House and Watch Over Me.
