I am especially hungry for MG #ownvoices of any variety. Contemporary, magical realism, epic fantasy, historical. ALL OF IT. #MSWL

Amanda Jain @wensday95 · Mar 1

I still want this. Civil War or Rev War, and very much grounded in reality. More magical realism than fantasy. #mswl

Still a big #mswl want.

Avoiding the joint session is making me crave reading a novel with magical powers. Who's got THE CRAFT for today?#mswl #amreading

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Feb 28

To clarify my #MSWL : I want systems of magic rooted *in* religion (think the Delphic Oracle), not books based on religious stories.

Lisa Yoskowitz @LisaYoskowitz · Feb 27

(2/3) magical realism MG; powerful MG historical fic; genre-busting MG; pacey and hook-y contemp or historical YA #mswl

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Feb 27

#MSWL more magic that's rooted in religion (doesn't have to be real-world religion, high fantasy works just as well).

“Fantasy (urban or otherwise) dealing with the diaspora of a magical community—how does the magic change/thrive?” @kurestinarmada #MSWL

P.S. Literary Agency @PSLiterary · Feb 15

Historical middle grade that re-writes history to add an element of magic or the unthinkable. @msmariavicente #MSWL

Didn't have a chance to post any #MSWL yesterday but maybe later today I will. Meantime, there's some right here:

Kait Feldmann @kaitfeldmann · Feb 8

Looking for #ownvoices #diverse picture books with whimsy, light magic, emotional depth, character-driven, lots of humor and heart! #MSWL

Emily Stanford @emilyswrite · Feb 8

Detailed and original cultures and creatures/aliens, solid and unique science or magic systems and settings. #MSWL

Kat Enright @katenright · Feb 8

#MSWL - YA Dark Fantasy. Vicious women. Grim Magic. Secrets and Lies and Doubt.

Laura Biagi @LauraJBiagi · Feb 8

Also on the lookout for sweet, heartbreaking magical realist or contemporary MG. #MSWL

Laura Biagi @LauraJBiagi · Feb 8

On the lookout for some great high concept YA or MG -- fantasy, magical realism, speculative #MSWL

Laura Biagi @LauraJBiagi · Feb 8

Always on the lookout for a Romani story - whether fantasy, magical realism, historical, YA or adult #MSWL

#MSWL what I mean by "science-based magic" is it can be explained by the science *of that particular world* but feels like magic to *us*

Lydia Sharp 💫✨💫 @lydia_sharp · Feb 8

#MSWL YA fantasy - I want unique worldbuilding that plays into the conflict, also I prefer science-based magic rather than mystical magic

Bridget Smith @bredalot · Feb 8

A thing I've been liking lately: fantasy worlds with magic but also technology from within the last century. #MSWL

Alyssa Jennette @AlyssaJennette · Feb 8

I always want magic, but I want to see contemporary folk magic: stitching, knots, bones, herbs, improvisation, etc. #MSWL
