Particularly Interested In

Anything YA is my preference. Any genre at all, I want to see it. In adult fiction, I love fantasy, speculative, historical, and romance with an interesting twist.

Book Genres
Historical Fiction
Period Piece
Women's Fiction
Young Adult (YA) / Teen
Specifically Not Interested In

Erotica. If there are graphic sex scenes, I don't want to read them. Allusions to sex, fade to black and such are fine. I'm also not the right person for picture books.
