I’m also looking for speculative romance in general, whether it has a big SFF element like THE UNDERTAKING OF HART AND MERCY and WINTER’S ORBIT or a romance with speculative elements like WITCHFUL THINKING and THE EX HEX.

I'd love some genre fiction (thriller/suspense/crime/speculative) from unique perspectives with authentic and unusual narrative voices. But I'm not the best fit for true crime or epic fantasy.

🎟️ Speculative futures not set in American cities

💀 Horror you want to hide from while you keep reading, things that make you say “gross”

🕰️ More mystery in everything! I love a goal. Speculative? Give it a mystery. Contemp romance? Give it a mystery!! Mystery? Go ahead and slap another mystery in there, baby!!!

📽️ Tightly paced, high-tension character driven stories you can’t put down. Slice of life is not for me

🌈 Romantasy and speculative queer love stories. I love space ships/fantasy kingdoms but what I love more is knowing how many beds are in the ship/castle

🤌 Characters who kiss (or should) but dont👏 trust👏 each👏 other👏

Speculative stories - I'm NOT a good fit for rigid dystopias full of government control and categorization of the populace.

Please send me speculative worlds that look like ours with One Big Change. Show me the human response to disaster, politics, or climate change. #MSWL

I am pretty picky with my YA spec fic interests, and it's sort of an "I'll know it when I see it" situation. That being said, I tend toward contemporary fantasy, horror, and/or relatively grounded narratives that feature some kind of speculative twist (i.e.: CEMETERY BOYS).

Here it is! The #MSWL thread!

The broadest strokes are that I'm looking for Adult romance; YA romcoms, contemporary, and the odd spec fic; and MG contemporary and fantasy. Specifics below.

Gothics and dark academia!! Please!! Whether they’re speculative or not, whether they lean more into horror or into romance, I’m very flexible with these two subgenres and want to see them all.
