Molly Cusick @molly_cusick#MSWL: #ownvoices #MG or #YA protagonists with chronic illness, pain, and/or a disability in a story not focused on that, and where no one dies--it's just a part of life. This kind of rep is important to me & I rarely see it in subs or published books.
Same! This has been on my #MSWL for a while.
Elle Keck @ElleKeckI've been wanting this for so long but: someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE send me a historical romance that takes place in Mexico/California in the 1800s. Mexican or Mexican-American author please! There's so much to explore and I want it all plus a love story! #MSWL
I am dying to read a YA romance featuring two neurodiverse characters. I want lots of tension. Maybe one character struggles to be mainstream (family expectations) and another makes it work with no ishts given. Please send this to me. #MSWL
Ali Herring @HerringAli#MSWL I want a MS that includes a romance, framed around an antihero like Damon from the Vampire Diaries (doesn’t have to be straight romance & I’m not necessarily looking for a vampire). Wounded, bad to the bone (but good too, redeemable), infuriatingly compelling. Give me.
YES! I've been dying to read something like this for ages! #MSWL
Taylor Lorenz @TaylorLorenzI wrote about 13-16 year old “regular teens” spending their summer posting sponcon to Instagram and making hundreds (and in some cases thousands) of dollars in the process theatlantic.com/technology/arc…
This is fascinating. #MSWL

Would love to read adult or ya historical fiction inspired by women of jazz. #MSWL
The Ringling @TheRinglingAcrobats & aerialists, snake charmers & death-defying stunts-women are some of the female circus performers who captivated audiences. Some of these remarkable women were photographed by Frederick W Glasier in the early 20th century, like Charmion, the Strong Woman (1904). pic.twitter.com/CZyMlWH2JW
#MSWL Anything that features the circus and its acrobats, aerialists, snake charmers & death defying stunt women - fantastical or historical - I want to read it!
