Can I have a horror novel about a young girl who carries around a doll (like a modern day American girl doll type doll - not old school creepy). And wherever she goes, bad things happen—but is it the girl or the doll? #MSWL SCARE ME. MAKE ME QUESTION THINGS.
Rebecca Traister @rtraisterThe 1881 Atlanta Washerwomen strike! Everyone should read @TeraWHunter's great book, To 'Joy My Freedom, which chronicles the story of the washerwomen: hup.harvard.edu/catalog.php?is… twitter.com/ewarren/status…

Also, because I know a lot of people think of me for sad, serious YA (and yes, please do keep sending me that!), I also do fun and funny and fluffy, and I would love to see so much more of it, querying writers, please. #MSWL
In honor of Holly Black's Queen of Nothing release today, I'd love more fantasy with complicated court politics like this series. Other examples, The Winner's Curse by Marie Rutkowski, and Crown Duel/Court Duel by Sherwood Smith. #MSWL
Jennifer '🐍' Grimaldi @JA_Grimaldi*romance* I love love 😭. I'm looking for own voices, fluff, every trope in the book (slow burns! enemies-to-lovers! trapped somewhere overnight & it's COLD & they have to HUDDLE omgomg) #MSWL
For those of you who've asked: yes ABSOLUTELY this includes romcoms as well (although I love romcoms with a bit of a bite to them--bury me in banter, please!) #MSWL
Would love a YA where a Korean teenager sees her life as a mirror to her favorite Korean soap opera. Grew up watching these with my best friend, and think it could be unique set up. High humor, some romance, a whole lotta' drama, & strong plot. #MSWL
K. Tempest Bradford is Giving Thanks @tinytempestBased on the conversation about the Babylonian recipe tablets and how a woman figured they were recipes and the men didn't believe her, tell me more stories about women researchers/scholars whose perspective as women changed the way we look at some ancient thing.
Aneeka Kalia @neeks_kalia12Would love to see more inter-generational stories from non-western cultures for the PB space in my inbox! Grandparents and grandchildren, aunts/uncles and nieces/nephews, etc. taking part in family or broader cultural traditions! #mswl
