My actual ultimate #MSWL is a YA fictionalized story of Amanda Nunes and Nina Ansaroffโ€”two female world class MMA fighters who meet and fall in love and become the sportโ€™s #couplegoals.

Currently obsessively consuming JINXED by Amy McCulloch, and not that I didnโ€™t know it before, but itโ€™s reiterating just how badly I want a MG STEM with a super smart badass girl MC. Adorable robots are a plus. Please and thank you. #MSWL

On the subject of #MSWL, Iโ€™d love some MG horror with a creepy setting a la Sunnyvale or Derry, where the spooks happens because of where they are. Something with series potential.

Iโ€™m really itching for some MG manuscripts that take me on an adventure, especially #own ones about non-Western places and cultures. I love mythology and folklore and spooks and puzzles, and Iโ€™m a sucker for a snarky narrator. If this is your book, please send my way! #MSWL

Here I was thinking Iโ€™d just watch an episode or two of @neverhaveiever. Let me tell you, I had to force myself to go to bed after an easy seven episodes last night.

If your book comps to this show, send it to me ASAP.

#MSWL: Iโ€™m usually not open to picture books I donโ€™t solicit, but Iโ€™d love to see something celebrating holidays we donโ€™t have many picture books about. Ones that arenโ€™t currently served in publishing written by #own authors. So if youโ€™ve got it, send it my way.

Been slowly making my way through the Rick Riordan presents lineup, and sweet peaches (see what I did there?), these books are so good. Iโ€™m very much so looking for an MG action/adventure global mythology standalone or series. VERY MUCH SO. #MSWL

I thought I could simply start Stepsister by @JenWritesBooks last night, but no, four hours later I had consumed it. So what Iโ€™m saying: GIVE ME GIRL WARRIORS PLEASE. Yes, this is a #MSWL.

OKAY TWITTER. What's the new YA genre trend going to be? Let's decide now so we can all start drafting our dystopian-vampire-werewolf-super hero-space novellas and get 2020 off to a banging start.

I know mythology tends to skew MG, but Iโ€™d LOVE to see more global mythology and folkloreโ€”especially in genres outside of action/adventure. I know yโ€™all have some spooky folklore ripe for horror. And rom coms with minor deities? Guided journies through loss? Yes. All of it. #MSWL

Thereโ€™s something I want to chat about that relates to my #MSWL but also has to do with my own life experience and those of others. The aughts, when I was in high school, were a ripe time for bi erasure. The classic line was that being bi was the gateway drug to going full/on 1/?

Bit of a slow month for outside-of-work choices, but Octoberโ€™s #readinglist included:
- What if a Fish (ARC)
- Dear Haiti, Love Alaine
- The Gravity of Us (ARC)

And letโ€™s be real, theyโ€™re all #MSWL material.
