Craving some twisted epic YA Fantasy – Heather Flaherty
I want high concept suspense novels like THINK OF A NUMBER or BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP – Jenny Bent
I’m craving female-led domestic suspense. Something creepy and twisted and atmospheric, inspired by true crime and/or with a family full of secrets at its center – Beth Phelan
A literary collection of love stories like the ones found in the Modern Love podcast. Aziz’s MODERN ROMANCE meets Emma Straub’s OTHER PEOPLE WE MARRIED – Victoria Cappello
I’m still very interested in fantasy novels (for any age) with epic and/or intricate world-building. Think THE BOOK OF THREE by Lloyd Alexander, THE WRATH AND THE DAWN by Renee Adieh, the LOCKWOOD & Co. series by Jonathan Stroud, JONATHAN STRANGE & MR. NORRELL by Susanna Clarke, SIX OF CROWS by Leigh Bardugo, or THE MAGICIANS by Lev Grossman – Brooks Sherman**
I’d like a MG or YA novel that deals with scoliosis, main character can be a boy or a girl. Think Judy Blume’s DEENIE, for the 21st Century! – Susan Hawk**
