New year, same #MSWL . But I do wish for: more teeth. More ferocity. Higher stakes. Lives in the balance. Unnormal books for unnormal times.

Craving exciting high fantasy: rich secondary world, complex characters, subtle magic, and high stakes. See https://t.co/B2LPV065iB #MSWL

#MSWL High-stakes MG adventure w/ a portal from our world to another. Optional animal friends. Sassy/unique characters. A la Narnia but new!

I <3 urban fantasy, paranormal rom, but I'm super picky abt them. Fresh take on vamps, shifters, angels/demons. High stakes a must! #MSWL

I'd love to see more LGBT historicals in my inbox, esp. with high stakes and STRONG sexual tension. Take advantage of the time period! #MSWL

#mswl - send me your romantic suspense! I want high stakes, heart-pounding romance and intrigue. Heat levels from mild to Habanero welcome.

A contemporary YA love story that feels EPIC & high-stakes & bigger than just a high school romance, even if chars are in high school. #MSWL

#MSWL : futuristic romantic suspense, especially rebels and mercenaries and stories with plenty of action & intrigue & high-stakes romance.

YA and MG with high stakes but nobody dies in the end. Broken hearts. Big decisions. All fine. Just no mass devastation or death. #mswl

Fantasy world not based on medieval Europe, characters dealing with subtle high-stakes scenarios & own issues. Must pass Bechdel test. #MSWL

Gorgeously written historical YA. Give me the feels-high stakes, gripping time and exciting subplot-mystery, magic, intrigue, romance #MSWL

Character driven MG and YA. If you've got high stakes and know your characters well, I'd like to see it! #MSWL
