There's often a lot of bending over backwards in YA to create alternate worlds/societies that are led by teenagers/young adults. Why not pull from real life and give me a book about riding the rails/hobo culture? I'm fascinated. #MSWL
#MSWL Not just (another) YA novel about having anxiety, but about the misunderstandings that arise between friends when one DOESN'T have anxiety, and how to deal.
#MSWL: The photos that we have of space may have been taken recently, but the images they show are thousands of years old, thanks to how light travels. I'm not typically one for alien stories, but I'm curious about how this would affect that circumstance.
#MSWL: A near-future novel about the end of the open internet, and how a grassroots rebellion is communicated and grown BOTH analog/off the grid and by circumventing Big Brother online. Give me handwritten codes, brilliant strategy, and principled hackers, please!
A complicated, faithful Christian protagonist, particularly for teenagers. #MSWL
Alexandra Petri @petridishesjust once I want to see the Evil version of a female character be the one in sweatpants and a chunky sweater instead of leather and stilettos
Brandon @brandonlgtaylorHonestly, I just want to read a slim, elegant novel about museum gays who go to the Getty and maybe get involved in art forgery, but like, without all the brocade of Donna Tartt. Something lucid, like Claire Messud or Joan Didion. But gay. In museums.
Roshani Chokshi @Roshani_ChokshiMy boo @niv_tales sent me this article & I'm reeling. How magical is this? bbc.com/travel/story/2…
#MSWL It's got history, a struggle between mother and daughter, magical arts bound to nature--what's not to like?
Alyssa Jennette @AlyssaJennetteA book that about the fashion world in the vein of how Black Swan treated the ballet world. Think dark and twisty Devil Wears Prada. #MSWL
The heels are pointy, the nails are sharp and perfectly manicured, & someone is likely plotting to poison a coworker with laxative. #MSWL
