Oh, forgot one! I want a YA that is set in freshman year in college that explores what it means about being on your own for the first time and having to figure out who you are when you get to choose your own path. #MSWL (Warning: I will be picky on this!)

In conclusions, I am looking for fresh new things that don't feel like things I have seen before. Strong writing, with binge worthy concepts. Characters that leap off the page and feel flesh out. And worlds that I want to live in. #MSWL

I still want a creepy mermaid novel and a ballerina murder mystery. #MSWL

Give me a character driven magical realism book with only a bare hint of the magic. #MSWL

I love retelling (except for Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, and King Arthur) so give me fresh new spins. Bonus points if they are not the same ones we always see. #MSWL (psst: you can also use them as a spring board like how ACOTAR was a Beauty and the Beast one)

I love a goo contemporary romance, ala ANNA IN THE FRENCH KISS or MEGAN MEADE'S GUIDE. Give me the feels and make me fall in love. Elevate the everyday so it is not my everyday. #MSWL

I love @MindyMcGinnis THIS DARKNESS MINE and FEMALE OF THE SPECIES so I want something in that dark twisty vein. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Feb 1

Give me an unreliable narrator or an unlikable heroine, but make me care. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Feb 1

I want a middle grade humor book. My favorite is THE MORTIFICATION OF FOVEA MUNSON. Give me something quirky and offbeat, but still kid friendly. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Feb 1

I want a literary book that is not contemporary. Give me a literary fantasy, magical realism, historical fiction. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Feb 1

I want a witch book. I enjoyed THE GRACES and CHARMED. I want it a bit darker and more about the craft (less Sabrina from the 90s). #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Feb 1

I want a historical that feels historical: from the writing, to the voice. My favorite authors are J. Anderson Coats, Ruta Sepetys, Ann Rinaldi. Recent favorite books: Wolf Hollow. #MSWL

I am looking for a lush fantasy world with morally grey characters. #MSWL
