New things I’m looking for this month at Entangled include:
I loved Lauraine Snelling’s Golden Filly series as a pre-teen & I’d LOVE a general-market version for YA. Racing, training, dressage, jumping, anything competitive. Lots of detail and that human-animal bond, and of course a strong central romance. Maybe a family stable story too?
Really swoony YA romance with a deep and compelling unrequited or impossible love story in any genre. Something that gets into our bones and makes us ache for the impossible romance. Make me think of Anna and St. Clair, or Starbuck and Apollo, or the early seasons of Elena and Damon, or what Rory and Jess should have been!
YA sci-fi set on Earth in modern-day with a strong romance. Something with a Leftovers or Stranger Things flair.
Sweet to spicy adult romance that revolves around clever and surprising set-ups, especially with strong sense of place and a vibrant community feel.
Adult romantic suspense, especially featuring hackers.
NA romance with a unique twist we haven’t seen before. Emergency response personnel? Yes please! Swift water rescue, aviation medicine, anything beyond firefighters and paramedics, though those are great, too. I’d love to see this in adult as well.
Beyond genre, I always want big stories about normal people, emotional depth with a lot of insight, voice that shows a mind at work. I acquire widely, but if you’ve read Island of Exiles by Erica Cameron, Why I Loathe Sterling Lane by Ingrid Paulson, The Sound of Us by Julie Hammerle, The November Girl by Lydia Kang, The Uncrossing by Melissa Eastlake, & The Importance of Being Scandalous by Kimberly Bell, you’ll see the heart I’m looking for! In case you want to see the things that tie these books together, you can see them all with a page for each on my YA books and adult books pages here on this site.
