My latest #MSWL is for imaginative and innovative MG and YA Non-Fiction. Take me beyond straight biographies time period overviews. I want to see people playing with form, topic and language

Big #MSWL for fluffy contemporary romances in my inbox. Right now in particular, but always on the hunt!

I’d love to see a story about a Typhoid Mary—someone who is a non carrier for a disease but the nexus for an outbreak and how that would play in to ones psyche #MSWL

#MSWL The Assistants but for taking down MLMs

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · 13 Nov 2019

I'm on the hunt for a juicy and high concept Contemporary YA. Bring on those big hooks! #mswl

Would also be fascinated by a SEVEN HUSBANDS style examination of FLW's wild, angering and tragic personal life #mswl

Weird specific daughter of architects #MSWL, but I would love a pb about how buildings are designed, possibly centering around a real architect or engineer (think Baby's First Eames but narrative)

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · 24 Sep 2019

And a couple of evergreen #MSWL for me: Fun and sexy rom-coms! Thrillers that surprise me and dissect genre norms (think SADIE that plays with the true-crime podcast)!

I am a big reality TV fan and am searching for books that get the complex interpersonal dynamics right. Show me behind the scenes drama, the truth about on screen chemistry and dive into the nitty-gritty of the push and pull between reality and Reality. #MSWL

In all ages and genres I am seriously hoping to see more books starring mc's with disabilities. #ownvoices especially encouraged. I want to see stories that show the full range of life and experiences--joy, accomplishments, ambition, sadness, friendship, love. #MSWL

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · 24 Sep 2019

I would love to see a YA (or upper MG) that focuses on the teen activist movement. Whether contemporary or historical, I want to see honest portrayals of how teens organize and mobilize. #MSWL

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · 24 Sep 2019

In kidlit more broadly (PB-YA) I am on the hunt for more NF that teaches and inspires in a fun accessible way. I lean towards non-fiction that focuses on a specific event or person, that really digs in to give us a clear picture as opposed to broad themes #MSWL

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · 24 Sep 2019

MG that thrills me. Bring me action, friendship, magic, fast-pace and fierce characters #mswl

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · 22 Aug 2019

My latest #mswl is for the friendship dynamics shown in Derry Girls. Earnest, unique individuals who shouldn't work together but somehow do, who are outlandishly funny, obliviously teen, and above all have each others backs.

Twitter please send me the novel equivalent of One Fine Day (song not movie): peppy, hopeful, swoony #mswl

Other songs as #mswl I'm craving: Goodbye Earl meets Thelma and Louise--women who have each others backs against violence and patriarchy

Still looking for a reality dating/other can't-take-your-eyes-away trashy reality show novel. Give me escapism! Fist fights! Swoony Romance! Murder? #mswl

Bibi Lewis @Bibi_Lewis · 12 Sep 2018

I love stories rooted in obsession, fixations, wild fascinations. Sometimes the best way to connect to a character is through their most firmly held interests or hobbies #mswl
