I really want to find some great MG fantasy. Until some of my favorite recent reads sell, you won't know the names, but I would love to see an immersive world and epic adventure. #MSWL

Another #MSWL: Salem Witch trials but in a fantasy world.

4. I want a cinematic, high concept fantasy unlike anything I have seen before. I love unlikable ladies (but they must still be relatable), and I would love a single POV. Character driven is the BEST for me. With literary-esque writing. #MSWL

Also, while I do love dark fantasy, I would love to see some fantasy that can serve our younger YA readers. Like Tamora Pierce and Sherwood Smith use to. Diverse reads we can give 12-15 set. #MSWL

What I am looking for here is fantasy that is high concept, but beautifully written. All these authors I read in 1 sitting, ignoring everything. I want a fantasy where I ignore the world. Make it stand out and feel like I have never seen these elements before. #MSWL #YA #MG

Speaking of Sabaa, I want cinematic fantasy. What do I mean by that? High concept, sweeping, almost grand like a movie in your head. Sabaa does this wonderfully, but so does Marie Rutkoski, Sarah J. Maas, Tahereh Mafi, Laini Taylor. #MSWL #YA #MG

In light of my query 0, I am going to do a #MSWL tomorrow. For now, here is a snapshot:
-Fluffy YA rom-com.
-Well-written psychological friendship book (YA)
- Literary-esque but cinematic fantasy YA and MG
- Historical Fiction like @RutaSepetys
- Quirky, Fun, Voicey MG

I don't understand the desire for writers to always do multiPOV. I am so burned out by them. Can I just get some single POV fantasies? #MSWL #YA

Day 20 of #25DaysofMSWL: I am obsessed with HILDA. So give me fun adventures with a fantasy twist in MG and MG GN. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 4 Dec 2018

Day 4 of #25DaysofMSWL: I want Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix in a dark thriller-esque kind of fantasy. Less alien involvement, more character driven reasons for the change. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 12 Sep 2018

#MSWL fantasy that combines Tamora Pierce and Sherwood Smith, but in the writing of Mary E. Pearson or Laini Taylor.

The graphic novels is so hard. I had one I loved but I had to pass on because it wasn't ready, but I am looking for authentic dialogue and a story that feels original and different. Fantasy is where I lean towards on these, but open to see anything. #MSWL
