Amanda Jain @wensday95#mswl for my nonfiction writing friends:
*I'm currently devouring Patrick Radden Keefe's SAY NOTHING & would love to find a book in this vein. History or history / true crime that reads like a thriller.
*PopScience that takes a deep dive into a subject. Think SPYING ON WHALES.
The YA version for me please #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
Amanda Shih-Goel @amandashihMy number 1 #MSWL wish is for general nonfiction that teaches while it entertains. Have an obsession? Teach me about something I don't know!
Common winners: Creepy history, unsolved mysteries, common science topics with a twist (Space + X; STEM + X), folklore
Hello. I didn't even realize I need this. #MSWL
Amanda Jain @wensday95A reminder that Julia Child was an intelligence officer for the CIA during WWII. Oh, hey, also a reminder that I would very much like a novel about this. #mswl
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
