I'm pickier with YA lately since it already makes up a large part of my list, but I'm still looking for magical realism, contemporary witches/magic, gothic stories, the influence of modern tech in romcoms, and fantasy or reimaginings that are different and fresh. #MSWL

Thao Le @ThaoLe8

Since I'm reopening to submissions today, I thought I'd share what's currently on my #MSWL, though many of the things I've tweeted about in the past are still relevant. I'm most hungry for:

ANY AND ALL Middle Grade, be it fantasy or contemporary, but it has to have lots of heart. Some recent MG I've enjoyed are Front Desk by Kelly Yang, Small Spaces by Katherine Arden, and all the Rick Riordan Presents books have been stellar #MSWL

I'm preparing to reopen to queries next week and wanted to share my current #mswl:

Contemporary Fantasy in the vein of the films About Time and Your Name
Diverse MG like Aru Shah and the End of Time and Amina’s Voice
Foodie Magic like Chocolat and Garden Spells
LGBTQ Retellings

I'm still dying for a Count of Monte Cristo retelling. Genderbend it. LGBTQ it. Make it contemporary. Or fantasy. I'm down for it! #mswl

It's #MSWL day! A lot of my previous mswls still stand, but I'm particularly interested in seeing more contemporary fantasy. I want to see magic in everyday life!

BUT I want to see some modern magic realism, and some contemporary fantasy (think portal magic, magical bakeries/flower shops, lighthearted time travel in the vein of the movie About Time). Again, more modern/contemporary and less urban fantasy. #mswl

Gearing up to reopen to submissions (possibly in the next couple of weeks). I want to see more Middle Grade and Contemporary YA! Especially stories from POC and non-binary voices. Please no issue books. I want fully developed plots, strong hooks, and nuanced characters. #mswl

Geeky contemporary YA about a group of board gaming friends and the romantic drama that ensues! #mswl

More contemporary MG. It can have a hint of magical realism too. Stories about family, friendship, stories that make me laugh and cry. #mswl

I would love a YA about famous historical rivals. Something like young Tesla versus young Edison. I also like rivalries in contemp YA #mswl
