#MSWL Mysterious ruins! Particularly where there shouldn't be any (such as previously undiscovered places).

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · 3d

#MSWL Intergalactic assassins! Seriously, though.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · 2w

#MSWL YA books with a protagonist whose family is in a weird business (eg, running a family spice shop) https://t.co/EMfbhXJ32z

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · 3w

#MSWL Stories rooted in deep, thorough research, particularly on folklore. Stuff that's as much thesis as it is novel.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Mar 19

I would read the shit out of this. https://t.co/IiV0FRqCs3

Like seriously, please write and send me this book. YA or adult. #mswl

#MSWL I'm always up for a good YA Shakespeare adaptation. Not just the tragedies, either. Comedies, even histories are good.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Mar 3

I can't speak for other people, but what I want in my inbox right now is escapism, not bleak political satire/dystopia. #MSWL

To clarify my #MSWL : I want systems of magic rooted *in* religion (think the Delphic Oracle), not books based on religious stories.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Feb 27

#MSWL more magic that's rooted in religion (doesn't have to be real-world religion, high fantasy works just as well).

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Feb 13

#MSWL I am not now, nor will I ever be, interested in Christmas stories and books.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Feb 9

Anti-#MSWL I'm so tired of werewolves vs. vampires stories. This trope is not gospel, guys. It's a few decades old at most.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Jan 26

And now I need a magic realism story about a family that runs a funeral home or garden that grows flowers that can… https://t.co/RYPQVNxUkS

10/10, would read this. Want. #mswl https://t.co/WLGRAZTsfS

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Jan 26

#mswl YA and MG books about a kid with anger management/violence problems.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Dec 15

I enjoy a good framing narrative, IF you can pull it off, which is hard. It should be interesting in its own right as well. #MSWL

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Nov 10

#MSWL girl characters in contemporary YA with an anger management problem, who can occasionally lose their shit and maybe even get violent.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Nov 8

#MSWL : a YA re-telling of Gawain and the Green Knight. Or maybe Beowulf? No idea what these would look like, but I'd love to see them.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Nov 8

To clarify an old #MSWL , I specifically want a fantasy based on *pre-Columbian, North American* Native American society.

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Oct 28

#MSWL : Gravity falls as a YA contemporary (I love the magic in GF, but I'd love to see the same premise in non-magical YA contemporary form)

Leon Husock @LeonHusock · Oct 27

If I tweet a #MSWL and you have something similar but not identical, you don't need to ask me on twitter if it's okay to query it.
