Middle grade: I’m probably most actively looking for something fairly light with a commercial voice, or a classic-feeling story. I love retellings, especially of familiar plotlines like THE PARENT TRAP, THE LITTLE PRINCESS, etc. Some MG books I’ve recently read and loved: THE WITCH’S BOY by Kelly Barnhill, RED BUTTERFLY by A.L. Sonnichsen, and A … Continue reading

For Non-fiction: I wish I had more non-fiction about emerging technologies and how to reckon the changes in technology with our humanity. I want non-fiction about understanding the human condition in light of medical discoveries. I want non-fiction that turns the tables on quackery, bias, and poor reasoning. I want a treatise on personal privacy, … Continue reading

Doesn’t matter … Continue reading

I am building my list of YA, MG, and Adult fiction. Regardless of market or genre, I’m looking for books with a great hook or a fascinating world, a strong but *real* protagonist, a story I can sink my teeth into, and, most importantly, a voice I would follow to the end of the world … Continue reading

I’m looking for middle-grade and young adult novels, and some picture books by author/illustrators.

Make me think, but don’t … Continue reading

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
