@LeonHusock Why Leon, I'm blushing! (But really, I NEED IT. Think of the commentary on depictions of medieval life if its ownvoices!)

@laurenspieller For me this really hits my #mswl for YA books about teens with weird jobs. I also want a contempora… https://t.co/mdbPY97Dxa

YA Fantasy with girls fighting the patriarchy is great, but I also want to see worlds where there is no patriarchy. #MSWL

Either via total equality of the sexes, or a world where the women are in charge. These aren't unheard of, but I'd… https://t.co/VHwnlj5sKZ

I want to read about friends with unusual & practical talents. Locks/safecracking, forgery, etc. You decide how they employ them. :) #MSWL

Yes please this. #mswl https://t.co/lpTMThnYUj

#MSWL MCs with a rage trigger. I see so many who meekly get beat up; I want someone who goes berserk. Doesn't matter if they still lose.

Note: I don't want to see this glorified, even if it's in self defense, even if they win. It's not a good thing.… https://t.co/ocorojxBgn

#MSWL nerds who aren't scrawny. Especially these days there are plenty of athletic, or at least in-shape, nerds.

#MSWL Noir-y pulp throwbacks like @ghostfinder 's MADE TO KILL. I loved that book.

You know that Shanghai/Hong Kong/British Raj aesthetic that's a mash-up of Asian/South-Asian and Western culture? I love that. #MSWL

For reference, see (among many other things) The Age of Shadows, a Korean spy drama set during the Japanese occupat… https://t.co/uyAdwLM5SJ

Awesome historical fact I just learned via falling down a Wikipedia hole and now must see in fiction please #MSWL :

On the subject of alternate histories, I'd love to see one where the Vikings stayed and colonized North America (set in modern-day). #MSWL

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Jul 24

#MSWL addendum: I don't really want the book with the MC who grifts people/hustles pool to be ABOUT that. It's just what he does for money.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Jul 23

#MSWL a YA book where the main character hustles pool.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Jul 22

a lady drug lord who dresses in men's clothing and falls in love with all her brother's love interests How is this… https://t.co/p68MWkx1px

Give me this YA book. #MSWL https://t.co/ckJB1CZQoq

#mswl opposite-sex best friends who are just friends. Neither is interested in the other romantically, they don't realize it later, nada.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Jul 19

To clarify my last #MSWL tweet about characters who are obnoxious shits, they should still be good people at heart.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Jul 18

#MSWL Books where the MCs are just...shits. Have you seen Yu Yu Hakusho? Give me Yusuke and Kuwabara. @DreadfulComics gets what I mean.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Jul 13

Reading @MaryRobinette 's Glamorist books and I've realized fiction with men and women with deep levels of mutual respect is just my jam.

#MSWL . They don't have to be romantically involved, either. Clarke and Bellamy on The 100 is another good one. https://t.co/t8OgnSxLML
