Ali A Olomi @aaolomiJust as Merlin is famous in European lore as a great wizard, so too do we find mages, witches, sorcerers, and sorceresses in the Middle East and Islamic world.
A thread on the legendary and historic magic-workers of the Middle East
Hannah Fergesen @HannahFergesenI can't believe I'm saying this, but I am almost completely caught up on queries. This means I'm HUNGRY. So even though it's not an official #MSWL day, in this thread I'm going to link to old wishlist items I still want and add some new ones!
Overall I'm craving unique takes on magic and worldbuilding, protagonists who struggle to acquire their ultimately hard-won skillsets, gorgeous prose, and narratives that ask topical questions or reframe old ones - especially from under-repped voices. #MSWL
MIDDLE GRADE. Gimme allll the middle grade! Contemporary middle grade, magical realism, fairy tales, fantasy. Anything that can described as for fans of Dianna Wynn Jones or Miyazaki will have me salivating #MSWL
Brian Geffen @Brian_Geffen#MSWL: Lyrical, gorgeously-written YA fantasy with lush worldbuilding and fascinating magic that can be comped to the masterpiece that is #StrangetheDreamer. twitter.com/Brian_Geffen/s…
Books like this are perennially on my #MSWL
Hannah Fergesen @HannahFergesenIf you've got a Practical Magic-style witchy YA, gimme. #MSWL
Still want this! Earthy, sisterhood/serious friendship, danger and sacrifice (no portals, no world threat, no romance as main plot) #MSWL
