I know I'm closed to submissions at the moment, but damn I loved #NeverHaveIEver so much. I want more of this type of MG or YA stories. #MSWL

Okay guys, I've been obsessed with #KnivesOut and I'd love to get a YA in a similar vein. I'm thinking more of the fun vibe than super suspenseful mystery. And because I am a trash shipper I'd love maybe some Marta/Ransom vibes with the characters. #MSWL

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

Am 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

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

Craving a narrative nonfiction Frida Kahlo YA in the vein of Vincent and Theo. Or about any WOC artists in general. #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

It's past #MSWL day, but I was just thinking of things I'd like to see... (a thread)
Replying to @ThaoLe8

Often in YA the MC is the only bookworm in her circle. What about a whole GROUP of bookworms? Like a squad of bookworm chars? #mswl
