Magical Realism

Unique magical realism with a tint of mystery a la BONE GAP #mswl

For YA, same kind of deal. Strong voice. Strong concept/plot. Escapism, fantasy, sci-fi, speculative, magical realism—all awesome. Not crazy about depressing, issue-heavy books. No horror/thriller for me. #mswl #ya

I’d love to see historical fiction set during a wartime, with a dose of magical realism (á la The Passion by Jeanette Winterson) #MSWL

My latest suspense/mystery #MSWL:
+Domestic suspense with a fresh commercial hook
+Small-town mysteries with series potential, female protags
+magical realism (set in known world), spec fic, horror, supernatural elements
+WHERE MY WITCHES AT

I'm looking for fresh chapter books with a diverse protagonist and possibly some magical realism. #MSWL

@MandyHubbard Me too! Contemp protags on the Ace spectrum are def high on my MSWL (so Grey-Ace and Demisexual too)

Ace rep in contemporary* YA is still at the top of the #MSWL. When it comes to demi-/grey-/ace/aro, pretty much all I see in my inbox is still SF/F.

*also realistic genres (historical, mystery, etc) and magical realism

For today's #DVPit #MSWL, I'm especially seeking:
- Novels in Verse

- Diverse ensemble casts
- Psychological Suspense
- WITCHES, but not just fantasy
- Historical or Historical AU (think AND I DARKEN)
- INTERSECTIONALITY bc damn, we need to get better about that

I'm still on the hunt for a middle grade that just makes me sob and fills my heart with FEELINGS with maybe a touch of magical realism? #MSWL

#MSWL for MG, I want mature voices. Upper MG storylines. LOVE historical fiction for younger characters, contemporary that makes me like who I'm reading about, urban fantasy/magical realism where the child is strong & proud.
