#MSWL can be so hard because on the one hand, I'm like, "Well, send me everything good." And on the other, I know that there are things I DON'T like (dragons, faeries, video games, time travel). And things I am especially called to--queer voices, theater anything, family stories

On the adult side, I would loooooove some epic family stories across generations. Think PACHINKO or AMERICA IS NOT THE HEART or THE MOST FUN WE EVER HAD. #MSWL

On the adult side, I would love, love, love to find some multi-generational family stories. Think Fluornoy’s The Turner House, Sullivan’s Maine, Urrea’s The House of Broken Angels, Gyasi’s Homegoing, etc. #MSWL
