I'm on the look out for a good escapism read. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Aug 17

As always, beautiful writing and strong voice. #MSWL

Contemporary fiction is something I am always looking for. But hooky contemporary fiction. #MSWL

With MG Narrative Non-fiction, I am looking for biographies. Tell me the true story of someone whose story needs to be told. #MSWL

The graphic novels is so hard. I had one I loved but I had to pass on because it wasn't ready, but I am looking for authentic dialogue and a story that feels original and different. Fantasy is where I lean towards on these, but open to see anything. #MSWL

For Romance, give me sweeping passion, epic loves, chemistry that makes me giddy. Favorite romances are #Klaroline, ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS, THE WINNER'S CURSE, etc. #MSWL

For YA fantasy, I am hear queens/assassins/con artist are a harder sell, so give fantasy that is new and different. Like I wanted THE 100 in fantasy. Or the Cold War in fantasy. Rethink the genre. #MSWL

For YA and MG Historical Fiction, voice is key. World building is key. I am less interested in post 1950s historical , unless it is a history I don't know. #MSWL

I want a fantasy that feels like THE 100. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Aug 16

#MSWL fantasy w/ a translator protag. There's so much power in language-- how they translate for a ruler effects a whole kingdom, eg. I want to see the nuances & consequences of deciding how & what to translate, word play between languages, times when translation falls short

Something I want to add to my #MSWL is that I find the rules of being a translator, especially for a deaf person, to be interesting. It would be interesting to see an MG about a child who has to speak for their parent (whether deaf or non-English speaking) and to see what happens
