Random things I like - Hitchhikers Guide, unicorns, Heathers, Murder She Wrote, kissing, Project Runway, animal POV, Hot Fuzz, history #MSWL

And also quirky MG fantasy with some humour and big stakes, and swoony, beautifully written YA romance #MSWL

Quick hop into #MSWL - firstly to say that TBA agents post a wishlist on our blog every month, so check these out: https://t.co/Z2o72Zpewu

An evergreen #MSWL is for chapter books by marginalized authors and author/illustrators. Funny, voicey and ideally a great hook!

YA/MG with a unique way of telling your story - non-linear narratives, novels in verse, multi-POV, letters, illustr… https://t.co/eRmaFFqKLk

Meta books - books that break the fourth wall, a book within a book, surprise me with creative storytelling #MSWL https://t.co/QzHiu1O1nL

Gemma Cooper @gemma_cooper · Feb 8

A parody on the paranormal trope, with heart and real stakes. Think a Buffy spoof #MSWL https://t.co/SC8onszX9T

Murder She Wrote for YA - cosy, fun, with great settings and clever mysteries #MSWL https://t.co/AQLFmW92PE

Gemma Cooper @gemma_cooper · Feb 8

YA romance with lots of swoonworthy moments and lots of kissing #MSWL https://t.co/5NyG1wvBs7

Always looking for animal POV for MG and chapter books - funny or heartwarming or animals going on adventures #MSWL https://t.co/rZ5QLwB6Jg

I'm always looking for animal POV and my own Homeward Bound #MSWL "Homesick sheepdog walks 240 miles home to Wales" https://t.co/SGHVQfxzR7

Can someone send me a MG or YA set during one of the 1800's/early 1900's world's fairs? Ideally a mystery. #veryspecificmswl #mswl

I am still waiting for my animal protagonist/One and Only Ivan/Homeward Bound type book #mswl

Gemma Cooper @gemma_cooper · Feb 18 2015

So, MG adventures, magic/genre mash ups, big characters for younger readers that can be series, animals and YA romance #MSWL

Gemma Cooper @gemma_cooper · Feb 18 2015

I’d love more books that explore sibling relationships and how these change over the years #MSWL

Gemma Cooper @gemma_cooper · Feb 18 2015

I would love more diversity across my list, but particularly on the younger end – bilingual picture books, a diverse IVY AND BEAN #MSWL
