I've tumbled into a research hole about the Jewish-American Mafia, and...folks, this is so specific...but if anybody's sitting on an ownvoices YA set during the turn-of-the-20th-century and following a teen swept up by the Purple Gang, I'm your girl #MSWL

I love every book on this list (WICKED LIKE A WILDFIRE! THE SUMMER OF JORDI PEREZ! GIRLS OF PAPER AND FIRE!) and it reinforced my desire for a YA with a poisonous pastry shop #MSWL

Happy Friday, I have very particular #MSWL's today—Twitter, please deliver 🙏🏼
1. I'd KILL for a San Junipero-ish YA: queer sci-fi with high emotional stakes and a sweet ending
2. Hear me out, a YA Red Tent (midwifery and ancient rituals of womanhood) set IN SPACE
Currently nerding out over Erik Larson’s meticulously detailed account of the last days of the Lusitania in Dead Wake, having flashbacks to my childhood obsession with A Night to Remember...
Anybody writing a YA or MG set aboard a slowly sinking ship? #MSWL
Claire Legrand is at the Texas Book Festival @clairelegrandi used to daydream about lovers and book deals and someday travels, but lately my daydreams have been about transforming into a pack of vengeful, fire-breathing she-wolves that storm the world until all evil has been burned to ashes

Mackenzi Lee @themackenzileeHi today I want to tell you a story for #BygoneBadassBroads that may or may not be true, but I think it's still worth telling. It's a story about Marguerite de Bressieux, the lady knight who hunted rapists.
Queer Girl Corner @QueerGirlCornerI'm a wheelchair user. I'd really love to read some non-tragic queer books with protagonists who use them! A romance that starts online would be cute. #yapridebookclub twitter.com/YA_Pride/statu…
#MSWL for sure
