Bonus #MSWL. I adore adventurous space opera of all kinds. (Ex Beth Revis Across the Universe or Passengers) but really want a focus on adventure and discovering new worlds.

My Hollywood peeps...a question for you? Why can’t we get some Black kids doing light, fun stuff? Going on adventures? Like, what’s it take? Societal ills need to be addressed. Racism gotta get got. There are still 19 notable slaves yet to get a biopic. I get it.

This is one of my eternal #MSWL’s. I’d really love some middle grade here. Think Goonies. Think space adventure. Think Indiana Jones. Think Flipped. Think Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys. Maybe a contemporary about a boy gymnast. Something! Anything light & fun with diverse characters.

#MSWL middle grade with a sense of adventure, fantasy, fantastic word building. Super voicey. Something that belongs on a shelf near other Rick Riordan Presents books.

Okay, things are about to get weird, but can someone please send me a super masculine viking who gets portaled to the future, but a future in the midst of an apocalypse, and of course there's love and adventure and he's uniquely qualified to save the day #ReverseOutlander #MSWL

Just went tubing with my family for an end-of-summer blowout in Alpine Helen & now I want a romance (with a series in mind) of adventure outfitters employees finding β™₯️: raft, canoe, kayak, whitewater, fishing, horses. Set in tourist town. Montana, Maine? I don’t know! #MSWL

#MSWL I want a YA about a family forced due to unfortunate circumstances to sell everything, buy a camper van, and go on an adventure meant to mask their misfortune, though conflict ensues, but love and faith bloom too.
