YA

Just had a talk with one of my beloved editor friends and we’re both dying for some WOLVES. Not werewolves, but like Game of Thrones wolves in YA or MG. WHO HAS THIS? Because we need it. Desperately. #MSWL

Day 6 of #25DaysofMSWL: My colleague @wensday95 always has the best adult books that I wish were YA. Like her Bronte's retelling. So for today's #MSWL, I am going to retweet some of her MSWLs.

I'm reading I'M WITH THE BAND on my break, and wasn't prepared for Pamela Des Barres' teen diary entries. She nails what it's like to be young, hormone-fueled, and utterly obsessed.

I hesitate to suggest it for #MSWL, but...done well, a YA along these lines could be awesome.

Would love to see more contemporary #YA in my inbox in general! #MSWL #amagenting #amreading

Another #MSWL: HOT DOG GIRL meets TWEET CUTE. I just need a rom com in YA do badly.

For Jan 2019 #mswl
I love a book that can make me cry. Really cry. Ruin my mascara cry. A or YA

For January 2019 #MSWL
Sports. Sports in YA F. In YA rom. In A rom. Nonfiction if it’s exceptional but I’ll be picky here. LGBT sports. I want the female QB and the female cheer captain - OR male QB and male cheer capt!

Currently battling strep reminds me of a battle won in ICU 8 yrs ago. In the new year, I want to read a YA story about a protagonist that's won a battle. But, the story doesn't revolve around the battle, it's a mere stair step to many great things AND bigger battles. #MSWL

DYING (ha) for more YA horror in my inbox, especially speculative/family-centric/this-monster-is-a-metaphor in the vein of THE BABADOOK or HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE #mswl

@Nicbeawrites What are you dying to see in your inbox right now? #askagent

Replying to @CaitlinLaRue

Mermaids! YA contemporary stories. Adult cowboy romances. My whole wish list is available on the @MetamorphLitAg website, but I post it here on Wednesdays as well when my query inbox is open. #wishlistwednesday #mswl

Goodness do jukebox musicals bring me so much joy.

Where's my YA novel about one? Teen decides to put on a jukebox musical to get the attention of estranged rockstar parent? Hijinx and music ensue.

Written in the voice of @SarahNSmetana? Thanks. #MSWL

I’ve completely fallen down a #MSWL rabbit hole, but WOW I would also love a creepy YA or adult set in the Crooked Forest in Poland. I mean really, look at that. 😍💀 #amquerying

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 1 Dec 2018

Day 1 of #25DaysofMSWL: I would love to see a YA or MG with roller derby. #MSWL

Natalie M. Lakosil @Natalie_Lakosil · 1 Dec 2018

Ok so #mswl where’s my LGBTQ+ Princess Switch/A Christmas Prince :D for adult or YA!!!!

Allie Levick @AllieLevick · 30 Nov 2018

Relatedly, I would LOVE nothing more than to see a YA novel where a young dancer calls out the stereotypical, racist caricatures in THE NUTCRACKER and designs to change them. 💪 If you’ve written that, don’t even send me a sample, send me the whole darn thing. #MSWL #amquerying

Looking forward to catching up on the agent subs & #DVpit queries currently in our TBR pile! I am reading some truly phenomenal projects right now.

I am so appreciative of everybody answering my #MSWL for beautiful, heartbreaking books. I'd still love more of those but I'd also love to see some fun, escapist projects especially in YA.
