Juliet is looking for crime, thriller, YA, reading group fiction, ghost stories, historical fiction, SFF, romcoms and books which fall a little bit in between. A snapshot of Juliet’s favourite novels includes: The Book of Night Women, The Crimson Petal and the White, The Hate U Give, Uprooted, To All the Boys I Loved Before, Room, Disclaimer, The Immortalists, The Rosie Project and Homegoing. She likes high concept hooks, books with an international appeal, quirky first-person narratives, historical novels with women at the forefront, and books which make her cry. She is particularly keen to see ownvoices narratives.
