Fanna is finally reading 👓 @fanatalityCall me when you all are ready to add soft girls who are determined and super feminine to the list of strong female characters when putting together book lists.
Here for the soft girls who take no shit as they paint their nails a mermaid color. #MSWL
Amanda Isabel Ramirez (ง'̀-'́)ง @ NYCC 10/4 @AmandaIsA_RamI have a visceral, intense need for the most indulgently romantic book you can find. I want to watch people fall in love with a splash of "Someone Great" #MSWL
(This stems from a really vivid dream I had about Tom Holland & I falling in love, but that's neither here nor there)
Yep. There is a great need in these quarters. #MSWL
I have always loved the Salem Witch Trials. but I was watching a show recently on Smithsonian channel that talked about what was happening in England at the same time. FASCINATING. Give us tangential history to the well trodden paths. #MSWL
Amanda Jain @wensday95Hello my nonfiction writing friends! I have a TON of #mswl tweets for you this morning, so buckle up.
I think a book that also talks about tough subjects would be cool. Like racial issues, a death manual (as in like how to talk about it, etc), financial planning. And why it is important TO talk about these things. There is so much that isn't talk about until BOOM! adult. #MSWL
eija sumner @eijasRereading Silent Spring, and I can’t help think about Wilder Girls and I want to talk to Rory Power about biological warfare, synthetic pesticides, and the ways in which (if any!) that affected her book and research. Have you read WG, yet???
Biological warfare in a fantasy could be cool. #MSWL
ellen @ellencormier-I've said it before but: Emily Dickinson was queer and I wanna read about it (YA)
- Another oldie: impeccably researched historical fiction (YA or MG) about the misogynist persecution of midwives, esp re: accusations of witchcraft
- Queer friendships
I am so down for this midwife one.
And the Emily Dickinson one.
Dang, Ellen. Go breaking my heart. #MSWL
In all my #MSWL, I haven't said epic fantasy. I love fantasy, but guys, make feel new. I hang in the space as a reader not just as an agent, so to hook me, you're gonna have to know the literary legacies and the tropes and how to break them.
Adria Goetz @adriamgoetzMermaids! PB, MG, YA, GNs.✨🧜♀️ I'm not looking for an epic fantasy, or a story in which someone discovers they’re a mermaid, or a romance in which a mermaid falls in love with a human. I'd love for it to be something a non-genre reader could get into. #MSWL
I am also adding this to my mermaid #MSWL
