Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a long-term critique partnership and I thought I would offer my services as a beta reader in exchange for a future swap since my WIP is not currently ready to be beta-read. I write YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy (soft sci-fi, low fantasy to be more specific) and would be interested in partnering with someone who shares the same genre interests. I also really love reading Historical Fiction (WW2 books are a particular weakness) though I've never tried writing anything historical as of yet.

I don't have extensive experience critiquing, but I do feel that I have strengths in dialogue and character development. I'd be happy to take a look at your first chapter to see if we'd be compatible. I am fairly honest about what doesn't work for me, but I'm always constructive.

Some of my favorite books are:
The Book Thief (by Markus Zusak)
Vicious (by V.E. Schwab)
Six of Crows/Crooked Kingdom (by Leigh Bardugo)
Code Name Verity (by Elizabeth Wein)
Wolf By Wolf (by Ryan Graudin)
Bone Gap (by Laura Ruby)

If you think we'd be a good match (or if you just want to talk about my favorite books, that's cool too ), please send me a PM.
