-Dark Whimsy/Cozy Magic
-Twisty murders (LOVE Rian Johnson and if you can comp to the vibes there, even better)
-EPIC Romances (romantasy and romcoms and straight romances)
-Lush worlds and atmospheric writing. #MSWL #YA
This one could be because I want tacos, but give me food #MSWL. Either a magic system based on food, or a enemies to lovers about rival taco trucks. Heck it doesn't even have to be about tacos. (I just want to eat this taco image).
Magical realism in MG is another one. This was the time when most of us in TX wanted to grow up, but it was also when I think we also still had a sense of wonder. So MG magical realism feels perfect here. #MSWL
And finally my evergreen #MSWL right now: mermaids. Evil mermaids. Magical realism mermaids. 13th Year Mermaids.
And Ren Faire contemporary.
And Spice Girls friendship break-up MG or YA.
13. Magical Realism meets THE THIRTEENTH YEAR. My love of mermaids is not a well kept secret. I would love to see something that taps into it. Something that speaks to this image, and is atmospheric and romantic. #MSWL

Make a Magical Realism thing and hit me with it #MSWL
Day 14 of #25DaysofMSWL I want a beautiful magical realism novel. @kyriemccauley's was stunning (to shelves soonish), I loved SAWKILL GIRLS. Something stunning and beautiful for magical realism, please! #MSWL
Amanda Jain @wensday95Someone write a book for me about these night lunch wagons. Maybe with a hint of magic? Because how could magic not be involved in this gorgeousness?? #mswl twitter.com/atlasobscura/s…
Tiffany Shelton, Witch🕯️⛤🌙 @TiffanyDiahannI'm going to keep shouting this out into the ether until I get it: GIVE ME CONTEMPORARY WITCHES! #MSWL #YA #Adult
#MSWL Charmed or Practical Magic adjacent for me, please.
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeSomething #TeamNat shares, regardless of their chose form, is a willingness to work, be pushed beyond their comfort zones, to experiment, to play, and to remember that we aren't doing easy things, but that is why we are gonna be legendary. (subtle reference to team song 🤓)
And if you have made it this far in my fan girling, you might have noticed that the genres I DON'T HAVE. Which is why I am looking for:
In addition to my fantasy and contemporary list. #MSWL
