Oooh #MSWL day! Some random things I’d love to see: a modern day VALLEY OF THE DOLLS, a utopian YA, GHOSTED w/ millennial age characters or in YA, psychological suspense that borrows from the news/2018 & a speculative thriller.

Like so much of our news these days, this story feels like the basis of a deeply disturbing and intriguing thriller... Someone write this psychological suspense novel stat. #mswl nytimes.com/2018/08/21/opi…

REALLY hungry right now for smart, feminist fiction that has something interesting to say about society + a propulsive plot. THE FEMALE PERSUASION by @MegWolitzer or YOUNG JANE YOUNG by #GabrielleZevin are perfect examples of what I'm looking for. #mswl !!!

"From ‘Brave’ to ‘Ask Me About My Uterus,’ books about feminism, female empowerment and sexual harassment are on the rise" and I plan to read them all. #mswl wsj.com/articles/metoo… via @WSJ

Everything in this article about the stowaway craze is practically screaming for a YA adaptation #mswl newyorker.com/culture/cultur…

I love this. We need more bilingual literature and I want to read it all! #mswl nytimes.com/2017/11/02/edu…

Random things that always intrigue me: stalkers, foodie culture, the afterlife, time travel, rags to riches stories, magic schools…. #mswl

Hillary Jacobson @hillaryjacobson · 12 Sep 2017

A book that seamlessly blends history and fantasy like THE GOLEM AND THE JINNI #mswl

Hillary Jacobson @hillaryjacobson · 12 Sep 2017

A book that is essentially GOSSIP GIRL, but hidden in a different setting, world or time! (think THE THOUSANDTH FLOOR) #mswl

Hillary Jacobson @hillaryjacobson · 12 Sep 2017

For #mswl day, I'm sharing my inspiration shelf in my office. I want books that are as unputdownable & important as these ones!

Hillary Jacobson @hillaryjacobson · 22 Aug 2017

WATCH ME DISAPPEAR by @janelleb is the epitome of what I'm looking for. Gorgeous writing, twisty, secrets & lies... #mswl

Hillary Jacobson @hillaryjacobson · 8 Aug 2017

After back-to-back reading bliss w/ @jcourtsull's SAINTS FOR ALL OCCASIONS & @minjinlee11's PACHINKO, I want a historical family saga! #mswl

Hillary Jacobson @hillaryjacobson · 17 Mar 2017

I would love to find the YA version of @CW_Riverdale, I'm obsessed! Something dramatic, self-aware, hilarious.. #mswl #sharpenyourpitchforks

Hillary Jacobson @hillaryjacobson · 2 Mar 2017

I'd love to find a book set in or about Japan, YA, non-fiction or adult! #MSWL
