I usually prefer contemporary or near-historical realism, but will sometimes consider speculative fiction, fantasy, psych thrillers, lite dystopian, literary horror, and paranormal (especially dealing with ghosts). #MSWL

I have been flying (pun intended🚀) through episodes of For All Mankind and would love to see a book in a similar vein - speculative/alternate history about the widespread societal ramifications of one small change to the timeline #mswl

Reminder that I'm always on the lookout for dark academia books in YA & Adult especially by BIPOC authors!

Anything including a speculative element, solving a mystery, challenging the elitism of higher education, and a close knit group of friends are 👌

In YA, i still love most genres and everything from light to dark. I love hope and depth and humor and stories that can change lives, whether from joy or empathy and validation. More specifically:

1. Super high concept contemporary and speculative contemporary
