@amachinist I want that.

@lpp you'll be first on my list when I find it. And we SHALL find it. A reminder--send us a modern THE CRAFT! #MSWL

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Feb 28

Avoiding the joint session is making me crave reading a novel with magical powers. Who's got THE CRAFT for today?#mswl #amreading

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Feb 2

Who remembers Rosamunde Pilcher's The Shell Seekers? I'd love to get lost in a current version of it right now. #mswl

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Feb 2

As @sallynyc reminds me, I just love a "siblings behaving badly" novel a la THE NEST. Or even behaving well a la THIS IS US. Send! #MSWL

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Feb 1

Authors, it is incumbent on us to create an empathetic world. Send me your debuts for this dark time. Show me what comes next. Pls. #mswl

Please spread the word. Words matter. And I very much want to represent books that matter. #mswl https://t.co/xfF19JKlLY

Craving, always, immersive epics a la Cold Mountain, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Historian, The Crimson Petal and the White. #MSWL

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Jan 27

Think a novel like Into the Wilderness or The Tenderness of the Wolves (adult) or My Side of the Mountain (kids) #MSWL

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Jan 27

I'm craving a frontier novel. Person/people in the wilderness. In adult or YA. #MSWL

Remember John Twelve Hawks' THE TRAVELER? Man, I'd love to rep a book like that. #mswl #queries

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Feb 25 2016

On this dreary day, I'm dreaming of beach reads! Please send them my way. #mswl #pubtip #tenqueries #queries

@amachinist @louisethebaker I'm taking notes 📝 anything in particular you really want in your inbox?#mswl

Check out my verbose #mswl tags. There is much I'd love to read. I want "the feeling"! @CaitlinLaRue @louisethebaker

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Jan 25 2016

So all of you aspiring authors, I very much hope to have that @louisethebaker fall-in-love feeling this winter. #mswl #ilovemyjob #pubtip

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Jan 4 2016

How about some literary-creepy like Jennifer McMahon? Or amazingly scoped fantasy like Six of Crows? Crime in the Don Winslow style? #mswl

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Jan 4 2016

Looking for food novels (like the movie Waitress), family ones (like Jonathan Tropper), alt-hist like Naomi Novik, and surprise me! #mswl

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Jan 4 2016

Looking for books like The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki, In a Dark Dark Wood by Ruth Ware #mswl

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Jan 4 2016

New year, hoping for great new debuts! Bring it, #queries ! #mswl #tenqueries

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Jul 28 2015

A wine novel! I know there have been some, but never enough wine. #MSWL

Alexandra Machinist @amachinist · Jul 28 2015

A modern upstairs/downstairs novel. #MSWL
