Can I get The Bold Type in YA novel form? Friendship girl gang! Supportive of one another's ambitions! Making big mistakes! #MSWL

#MSWL forever. This is what I always want in YA! https://t.co/tzjohHGa6G

My #1 #MSWL item right now: #ownvoices chapter book/young MG series featuring POC protagonist, illustrated or with room for illustrations.

Alex Y. Arnold @alexyarnold · Jun 13

I gravitate most towards magical realism, contemporary realistic, puzzle novels, & quirky/accessible fantasy

Anyway, if you've got anything that seems like a fit, I'd love to read! My #MSWL is here if you want to see more: https://t.co/yuljKjsGVM

A reminder that my #MSWL is right here: https://t.co/yuljKjsGVM. tldr; #ownvoices , books that can be used as tools to smash the patriarchy.

I know high school girls can be mean, but I want a contemp YA that shows how important & life-affirming female friendship can be, too #MSWL

Alex Y. Arnold @alexyarnold · Jun 30 2016

Oh! #MSWL Can I please get a YA novel where the characters have jobs and a community of coworkers? Think Empire Records.

This! Because I also want to see teen characters who are not, by default, upper or upper-middle class. #MSWL https://t.co/ZGKu0RZgJ4

Diverse, underrepresented stories and perspectives from #OwnVoices #MSWL

Alex Y. Arnold @alexyarnold · Jun 30 2016

A kid-and-her-dog MG novel with depth and complexity, a la BECAUSE OF WINN DIXIE. It's a high bar because I am in love with that book. #MSWL

Alex Y. Arnold @alexyarnold · Jun 30 2016

A deeply romantic magical realism YA. #MSWL

Alex Y. Arnold @alexyarnold · Jun 30 2016

And I think the best MG fiction makes me look at "basic" human emotions (love, grief, loneliness) anew, through the eyes of a kid. #MSWL

Alex Y. Arnold @alexyarnold · Jun 30 2016

Looking for a MG that gives me a crazy amount of feelings. I love MG because as a 12 yr old, you're feeling A LOT for the first time...#MSWL

Alex Y. Arnold @alexyarnold · Jun 30 2016

LGBTQ historical romance. I want to see a historical period/event from this underrepresented perspective. (Must be well researched!) #MSWL

Alex Y. Arnold @alexyarnold · Jun 30 2016

Especially love when the setting deeply impacts the plot, mood, themes. I want to imagine the book couldn't be set anywhere else! #MSWL

Alex Y. Arnold @alexyarnold · Jun 30 2016

In life, I have major wanderlust. So in books too, I want to be transported to evocative, authentic settings. #MSWL

Alex Y. Arnold @alexyarnold · Jun 30 2016

I would love a feminist-as-hell YA about a coven of witches. I can imagine a bunch of awesome interpretations of this setup. #MSWL

Alex Y. Arnold @alexyarnold · Jun 30 2016

My #MSWL is always right here on the ol' tumblr but I'll join in the fun later today! https://t.co/yuljKjsGVM

Always very down for unique fairytale/fable retellings that feel lush and sweeping and maybe a little (a lot) sexy. #MSWL

Um, in YA. Don't send me a sexy middle grade retelling. #MSWL

I was a middle grade girl who loved baseball, so I'd love a middle grade abt a girl who loves baseball. & dogs.& NSYNC. (Too specific?)#MSWL

Alex Y. Arnold @alexyarnold · Mar 10 2016

Everything abt THE SMELL OF OTHER PEOPLE'S HOUSES gets me excited, incl. diverse multiple POVs &unique setting. So..that but different #MSWL
