I am a fan of books that make you feel angry about the ending. I want to rep a book that makes you so invested in the characters (whether you hate them or love them) that at the end you want to throw the book across the room. #mswl
So I visited Bamburgh Castle today and heard the ballad of The Laidly Worm of Spindleston Heugh and now I want a feminist retelling of Princess Margaret who got turned into a wyrm. en.m.wikisource.org/wiki/English_F… #mswl

I need a fantasy story related to or inspired by the Golden Bridge (aka the Hand Bridge) in Da Nang, Vietnam. #mswl

My current #MSWL is a contemporary fantasy in the vein of Kiki's Delivery Service (MG or YA).
John Freeman @VTjdfCA@ThaoLe8 #mswl it!!!!
I have in the past! But it's an important reminder: I would love to get a picture book about pangolins! The story can be silly and about them trying to ask someone on a date or about their conservation. I don't care! These creatures need more love! #mswl twitter.com/ThaoLe8/status…
Patrice Caldwell @whimsicallyours@ThaoLe8 @dancingofpens Right? I just feel like race bending things adds so much depth and a brand new cool interpretation
To add on to my #MSWL for retellings and things...
Sylvan Creekmore @SylvanCreekmoreSTILL #MSWL, JUST SAYIN’ ——@casey_mcquiston??? honestly I don’t even need to be the editor I just wanna read it. pride.com/tv/2019/4/02/b…
I'm not crying, you are! 😭❤😭❤ this feels even more special to me because they are Vietnamese. #MSWL
Thao Le @ThaoLe8Am reading Annihilation and now I kinda want a weird nature YA #mswl
I'm still looking for this BTW. Atmospheric, creepy, invasive nature. Not quite right flora fauna. The feeling of something unnerving, watching you from the forest. I love settings that feel like characters, as if they have a motive. #MSWL
Rae (is on her final edit right now) Williams @RachaelEWritesDo you think there can be a resurrection of cultural-based Contemporary Fantasies? So many Contemp Fantasy's I've seen are based on English/Norse mythos. There are so many different cultures out there! #asklitaoc
OMG YES. I want this #mswl
Yes, we need dark stories in MG/YA because kids need to have their problems/struggles acknowledged. But please remember to infuse hope. I want less focus on the trauma/suffering and more on successes and healing. Marginalized kids need to know they deserve happy endings #MSWL
Kurestin Armada @kurestinarmadaShion/Sean and Tsubasa have apparently broken up, sooooo love is canceled
In light of this terrible news I need some amazing YA rom like the Tsubasa/Shion relationship on Terrace House. I basically want shoujo manga storylines please #mswl 😭😭😭💔
Moe Ferrara @inthesestonesHonestly, as a former costumer and a cosplayer— I’d read the hell out of this. Bonus points if it’s a YA. #MSWL pic.twitter.com/TSgp6tXzxi
Un this sounds amazing. This is the sort of creativity I seek in time travel stories. I love time travel, but I'm supremely picky about them. #mswl
Sarah Guan @Sarah_GuanOne of the things good gothic fantasy & claustrophobic scary spaceship stories have in common is that they both do setting-as-character well.
Really, any setting can be made to feel like a character. Creepy castle? Floating city? Jungle that *devours* people? YES.
