⭐️Thrillers, psychological horror, supernatural, mystery, and speculative fiction that radically represents and explores queer, female, and BIPOC rage, revenge, and reclamation of power (think Elatsoe, Iron Widow, Sadie)

#MSWL 2/?
-contemporary MG and YA issue books, where the issue is NOT the main focus
-MG and YA romances #LGBTQ+, as well as M/F
-jaw-dropping, twisty thrillers in both YA and adult fiction
-traditional mysteries with a fresh twist and a hint of romance but NOT romantic suspense

Feels a bit like tweeting into the void, but before this bird app fully tanks I would really love it if someone sent me a mystery/suspense/thriller with some Mare of Easttown vibes. #MSWL

Thrillers! I’m famously hard to surprise, so anything with a twist I don’t see coming is an auto “yes.” Ruth Ware, Riley Sager, Megan Abbott, and Lucy Foley are my go-tos, but I would love to read something that can put a fresh twist on the genre (think THE MAID or "Knives Out.")

Crime/thriller. A strong hook. A killer plot. Impossible-to-ignore characters. Think simmering tension and unbearable suspense. (Not currently looking for police procedurals.) #mswl

#Thrillers!!! I love relatable characters who get put in situations I would NEVER want to be in. I love exotic locations dripping with atmosphere. I love relationships where what is left unsaid creates tension. I also need to be launched into the next chapter!

What I do love to see in the YA Contemporary field are thrillers, hauntings that can toe the line of horror without going overboard, rom-coms, friendship break ups, and grandparent relationships. I especially love to see all this with BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+ characters. #mswl

Adult:
-BIPOC-led mysteries and thrillers, especially those with romantic and cozy *elements* even if you may not consider them fully cozy. e.g. there are dogs. there is a bakery. there is a fluffy tooth-rotting romance
-again, more BIPOC in the great outdoors
