In adult, I'm mainly looking for SFF & historical, especially the kind that's both gripping & intimate. I want a really deep dive into a character's (or community's) emotional journey. #mswl

Real faceclutchers - you know, the kind of book where you have so many feelings you have to hold onto your face to keep it together. #mswl

In MG & YA, I'm focusing on high-concept contemporary that's sweet, funny, and layered, the kind of book that deals with a couple different kinds of relationship including the MC's feelings about themselves. #MSWL

LOL, and also #mswl Slouching Towards Bethlehem, The Sun Also Rises, Heart of Darkness, and The Glass Menagerie. electricliterature.com/literary-ficti…

In ANNE OF WINDY POPLARS, Anne goes to a wedding & accidentally-on-purpose reunites the cranky sister of the bride with her childhood sweetheart, who *sails across the bay at 2AM.*

#MSWL that YA/lit novel.

Replying to @bredalot

Give me the crankypants heroine who always says the wrong thing, the kindhearted boy who always makes her laugh, the fight that tore them apart, & the light in the attic that brings them back just before it sours forever. #MSWL

#mswl A novel about Elizabeth Rawdon, Countess of Moira, who wrote the first archaeological report on a bog body: smithsonianmag.com/science-nature…

TFW when everything you think of for #mswl is both a repeat of yourself a year ago AND other people today:

#MSWL YA fake-relationship stories, please! They are so contrived but also my kryptonite.

Since everyone is #mswl-ing their favorite tropes! I LOVE fake relationships, whether they turn real or fall apart spectacularly.

#mswl Now that I'm full on the Cordelia Naismith Vorkosigan train, give me some space stories that feel like SHARDS OF HONOR.

Also been watching a lot of GBBO and would love, eg, Martha's story: teen girl juggles competition & school, v. cozy feel. #mswl

Bridget Smith @bredalot · 12 Sep 2017

First: still looking for the f/f contemp YA of my dreams; funny, warm, layered, & more "coming of age" than "romance." #mswl

I'd also love some epic, fast-paced, character-driven fantasy inspired by non-Western history (again, esp #ownvoices). #mswl
