#MSWL : A Riverdale-esque YA retelling of a classic, non-murdery tale. But less soapy, more literary, and turn the noir up to 11.

Me too!! #mswl https://t.co/KTIIbeDeNF

#MSWL : I'd love a noir told from the femme fatale POV, rather than the PI.

I'd love to see more noir w/ a strong sense of place and memorable voice. Hillbilly noir. Noir set in foreign counties & small towns. #MSWL

Noir-ish neo-cold war espionage thriller in a Resistance-vs-Putin/Trump-like world w/flawed heroes, complex bad guys & sense of place. #MSWL

On a lighter note (if you consider murder a lighter note...), I'm a sucker for #YA noir. Think Brick or Veronica Mars. Or Riverdale. #MSWL

Gimme a stylized YA noir ala the movie BRICK. #mswl

Query me with an adult Noir mystery, that while it stays true to the conventions of Noir, it breaks/modernizes many of its clich├ęs. #MSWL

Erica Bauman @Erica_Bauman · Jun 30

#MSWL YA with a film noir feel. Give me a teenage Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall.

Sarah Davies @SarahGreenhouse · May 19

I'd love to find a YA contemporary Scandy Noir novel: like, The Bridge, The Killing for teens. #MSWL

Jennie Goloboy @JennieGoloboy · Apr 19

Secret loves: novels set on communes/intentional communities, books with a noir feel, heroes that don't think they're heroes. #mswl

In case anyone needs a reminder, Pushing Daisies is Roald Dahl meets noir meets pie. It's streaming on the CW app. Also on my #MSWL forever!

Kate Brauning @KateBrauning · Oct 27 2015

I am eagerly looking for fantastic YA Western noir thrillers for @EntangledTeen . Send send send! #MSWL

Sean McCarthy @mccarthylit · Jul 28 2015

In MG and YA, I'd love to see genre-bending narratives (like a noir-Western or mystery-fantasy) that shows mastery of both forms. #MSWL

Natasha Simons @ndotsimons · Jul 28 2015

I'm looking for domestic noir, dark female-helmed-or-focused suspense, digital celebrities, smart politics, and literary horror. #MSWL

Lisa Abellera @LisaAbellera · Jul 15 2015

Suspense/mystery-esp. historical, gothic, cozy, noir & genre-bending mysteries w/smart language, humor & quirky characters #MSWL #NewAgent
