Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix@bookendslit @Super_Weenie @absolutestartup @BookEndsJessica @jamerrson @TracyMarchini @inthesestones @SoCalledYALife I'm looking for fun MG in the vein of Raina Telgemeier! #MSWL
I'm looking for more MGs in the vein of J. Anderson Coats or Whitney Gardner #MSWL
A reminder that I really want a MG about being a child of an immigrant. Something from Crazy Rich Asians that hit home to me was this line (summarized for space):
"You may look Chinese and speak Chinese, but not here (head) or here (heart)." #MSWL
Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspiellerThis is the most obvious #MSWL ever, but...
I want books like To All The Boys I've Loved Before, in YA and Adult. This means:
--family B plots
Let's do this!
Same TBH #MSWL
I will also say that 4 of my novelists were #MSWL finds: @LauraTNamey with hoarding, @alexandraovery with Klaus like character, @KariTrogen with Swan Lake elements (from my auditory MSWL), and @jamlo525 for celebrity.
Most of my MG was query pile, & most of my YAs #pitmad finds
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
Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALifeIn MG, I am kind of all over the map. @KimLongMG's MG was a fun Sci-Fi Amazing Race that put me on an adventure. @laurel_gale's fantasy felt literary and classic to me, like a warm hug. And @jamlo525 just crushed (in a good way) me with her character's OCD.
Each of them nailed their MG voice, and that is central to me. #MSWL
