On the older side for nonfiction, I'd love nonfiction that was more than just what we currently have. I just read ATTACHED (so good) and I am thinking, wow if only I had read this as a kid. Where is the hip #YA NF that makes it cool to know about marketing, psychology, etc #MSWL
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife@alexandraovery @wensday95 Not gonna lie: that poison dress book sounds really cool, now that I have said it. So I am going to say it: a narrative NF about poison and the non-poison uses in history. #MSWL
Retweeting because I need a poison NF book. #MSWL
#MSWL this gonna be weird but is anyone working on a narrative NF book about poisons that weren't used for poisons? Like the poison dresses?
I have a weird fascination those time of things. #mg #ya only
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
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeOkay let's chat YA NF #MSWL! pic.twitter.com/5XQpIMMLK0
So everyone knows I am looking for a YA true crime. What does this look like? IDK. But I wants it. #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
#MSWL for PBs here: narrative non-fiction, that is NOT biographies. Think SKULLS by Blair Thornburgh, or PEOPLE DON'T BITE PEOPLE by Lisa Wheeler. Give me interesting perspectives and facts and knowledge!
