Series or Standalone?
Obviously I want whatever is going to serve the story the best, but if it’s really good, I generally want a series so I can have more.
Magic earned or magic born?
Either, as long as they have to work and learn to control and use the magic. If they’re born with it and it comes as naturally as breathing, I’m less interested, but if they have to work to learn to control it, it’s okay.
Enemies-to-lovers or friends-to-lovers?
I tend to like enemies-to-lovers better. I’ve always been a sucker for when the bad guy has to join up with the good guys to defeat an even bigger bad guy, and that’s a little of what enemies-to-lovers gives me.
Hilarious banter or emotional ruin?
Love triangle or insta-love?
It depends, is the isnta-love due to a biological imperative or soul-bond? Because I love that. But if it’s just two people falling in love instantly… eh, I think I’d still prefer that to a love triangle. I’m tired of those.
Keyboard smash fantasy names or all names start with the same letter?
All names start with the same letter. I don’t read keyboard smash fantasy name books.
Mean parents or dead parents?
Supermodel looks or constantly says how plain they are?
Supermodel looks. That’s how I’ll picture them anyway.
Face on cover or typography on cover?
Depends on how pretty/arresting the face or typography is. I’m not particularly drawn to one over the other.
Villain turning a little good or hero turning a little bad?
I probably already answered this, but villain turning a little good. It’s catnip to me.
