#MSWL everything about this. All the girl power in everything but especially in sports. And girls banding together instead of seeing each other as the enemy. I know HS And MS girls can be mean, but they can also be loving, supportive, and empowering, and that’s what I wanna see.

I’m generally not a good fit for music books, that being said, I would LOVE an #ownvoices #YA that takes place in the world of #kpop #MSWL

There’s no one right way to go through the stages of grief, and if we spent more time normalizing, say, taking a year and a half to get through anger (πŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™€οΈ), we’d feel less like people β€œfucked us up” and more like we’re having a universally human experience. So, yeah, #YA #MSWL.

As we approach Sept, let me just publicly declare: I’m all onboard with the spooks. Murder mysteries, ghost stories, what have you. BUT. My main focus is still an engaging, funny voice and an examination of some kind of culture (geographic, hobby, sport, familial, etc.) πŸ‘» #MSWL

Just finished HELLO GIRLS, and hot damn, can I get a hard #MSWL for badass friends who give a biiiiig middle finger to the patriarchy and choose each other over everything else? A side of murdering abusive men is always welcome on this menu πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

#MSWL: I want a #YA about a girl gamer. What’s it mean to prove your place there? SF element a lΓ‘ READY PLAYER ONE is cool too (but not necessary).

Is it too much for my #YA #MSWL to just consist of spooky but funny retellings of the Headless Horseman ?
