I want a #MSWL about smashing the patriarchy

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 4d

And as always right now, romances. Slow burns; enemies to lovers; we're faking it, but whoops it became real are some tropes I love. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 4d

Magical realism and an atmospheric read round out today's #MSWL.

Also still looking for my THIRTEENTH YEAR comp and my Southern Gothic book.

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

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 4d

I want some unique form of storytelling. I love alternating timelines. And I LOVED SADIE. So give more more unique ways of telling stories. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 4d

I wonder if there is a way to do a YA Nonfiction True Crime book. #MSWL Not sure what it would look like but it would be interesting. This is different than my fiction request for murder mysteries.

Dr. Uwe Stender @UweStenderPhD

College YA is another area that has been brought up in my informal polling, @ReadWriteandMe also mentioned it. I wish that publishers were more open to it, but if you send me a great one, we may make it happen saleswise. My next #MSWL: College YA.

Seconded! As someone who grew up with the same kids from kindergarten to 12th, college was the first time I was with new people, and allowed to reinvent myself (as it were) but it was also the first time I was out on my own. There are alot of rich YA themes in this setting. #MSWL

#MSWL also thinking I want a magical realism book.

#MSWL YA book like TRULY DEVIOUS. I love true crime and I think there are alot of teens who do too so I would love to see more YAs that involve teens obsessed with solving mysteries.

Adding on: I'd love to see this with neurodiveristy angles, or even neurological angles. Like someone with Prosopagnosia for neurological or someone with autism for neurodiversity. Both present a different way of dealing with the world, and how would they solve the puzzle? #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · 5d

#MSWL Can someone tackle the devastation of the Spice Girls break-up? And like the reflection of a friendship group?

And now I am reminded of my love MY BIG FAT GREEK WEDDING and I want that but in a YA. #MSWL

OMG someone for the love of all give me this. ANY CULTURAL. But this beautiful and humorous.

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Apr 30

I also want a cult book. I loved The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly and Before I Let Go. I am fascinated by the psychology behind cults. #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Apr 30

I want a book hangover. I want to read late into the night. I want to desperately message people telling people how obsessed I am. I want to be the OG fangirl with my OTP homemade shirt (HOLLER to my #TeamJacob peeps!) THIS IS THE REQUEST OF MY HEART!!!!!! #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Apr 30

I want a fluffy rom-com, and I want it to feel like Taylor Swift's cotton-candy ME. Give me feels and squees and chemistry and happiness. #MSWL #YA

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Apr 30

I love Kate Morton. I love the big reveal. I love the family dynamics. My favorite is THE DISTANT HOURS. Would love to find a YA that is like #MSWL

Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife · Apr 30

In the spirit of @jamerrson doing an MSWL, I'm going to chime with one, too!

I am really into the song BURY A FRIEND and would love a YA that has that atmospheric, psychological feeling in contemporary #MSWL

During dinner, I wondered if anyone had Ren Faire hook-ups, and now I am like, dude, I want to get a part time job at the Ren Faire just to learn the gossip of who is hooking up with who. AND also #MSWL #YA.
