Pretty much everything I am looking for could be either for adults or teens, depending on the age of the protagonist and the writing. My taste is similar for all age groups (within appropriate boundaries.) I would love to read something unabashedly girly — fun, light, easy to read, time-sucking fiction. See, e.g. Emily Giffin, … Continue reading

What I’m most interested in finding are books that give me an emotional response, that make me see the world differently, and that contain complex and compelling characters, plots that surprise, and dynamic writing that takes me places I didn’t expect. Some things I’m especially interested in at the moment: Magical realism in the vein … Continue reading

For adult romance, I’m looking for historical romance with a good balance between romance and story, though I shy away from westerns and regency. I love suspense with realistic action that can still keep me on the edge of my seat and paranormal that steps out of the confines of vampires and werewolves. I love … Continue reading

For Young Adult, I am looking for contemporary, sci-fi, and thrillers. I also love books that combine genres in a unique and clever way. I’d love to see more interesting settings and cultures.

MG: I really gravitate to the more mature middle grade that is voice-driven and deals with bigger issues. I also like diverse, unique protagonists who take charge and push the story forward. YA: Especially in contemporary and scifi, I love anything where unlikely allies join forces or where reluctant heroes come into their own. I’m … Continue reading

My interests in fiction include historical fiction—particularly untold stories (Apartheid, the genocide in Rwanda or any other non-European historical events (or something similar to the movie Belle which features a black aristocratic woman in 18th Century England), American history (the Harlem Renaissance, Japanese Internment, Chinese immigration to the West Coast/building of the railroad) with a … Continue reading

I’m looking for literary fiction set in contemporary or futuristic times with lively, memorable characters and creative nonfiction on topics that make your friends go “I want to read about that!” At this particular moment in time, I’m searching for work by female authors with strong female leads. Genre isn’t as important to me as … Continue reading

I’m officially open to all genres–I know how that sounds, and yes, I know, YIKES, I’ll be getting a lot of mail–but I’m particularly interested right now in the following: Whatever the age group, I tend to love contrast–highbrow sentences and lowbrow content, beautiful settings and ugly motives–the books that are beautiful and scary, heartbreaking … Continue reading
