Also still wanting my bayou witches like Misty in AHS. Looking for realistic and well researched Voodoo/Hoodoo. Witches/Conjurers/Weilders in general, really #MSWL This can be historical, fantasy, urban fantasy, contemporary, just GIMME
You all know I love fantasy. Looking for things that feel a bit out of the box now. Contemporary fantasy, maybe? YA urban fantasy? An update on Harry Potter? I don’t know; surprise me. #mswl
I want Urban Fantasy, Fantasy, Historical - all inspired or utilizing non American/European mythology. Give me monsters and legends and traditions from worlds we don't often see in the mainstream. #MSWL
Leon Husock @LeonHusockThe hallmark of a lot of urban fantasy seems to be a mish-mash of cross-cultural supernatural folklore and myths. This is cool, but I'd love to see UF with non-Western, culture-specific secret supernatural subcultures. #MSWL (bear in mind I am very picky about UF).
Especially if you want to set it in a pre-Globalism period of history where it's even more plausible that these communities would be so insular. I'd love a British Raj UF that's mostly communities of Indian folklore creatures with a handful of British Isles imports. #MSWL

hi! i am a girl who wants to read more books set in west and central asia!
(esp. if they are supernatural/urban fantasies or historical fantasies or sweet fizzy contemporary romances)
this is a #mswl thing but also very much a "please recommend me some reading" thing
I want urban fantasy in MG too please! Series potential and big friend groups, family-focused, heartfelt—would love to fight some surprise tears reading a fun, sweeping adventure. #MSWL
I’m still looking for my fresh take on vampires in YA, whether grounded in this world or else reimagined and renamed in a fantasy one. I’d love to see more unexpected urban fantasy in general too, with characters I’d follow anywhere. #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.
