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
eija sumner @eijasRereading Silent Spring, and I can’t help think about Wilder Girls and I want to talk to Rory Power about biological warfare, synthetic pesticides, and the ways in which (if any!) that affected her book and research. Have you read WG, yet???
Biological warfare in a fantasy could be cool. #MSWL
ellen @ellencormier-I've said it before but: Emily Dickinson was queer and I wanna read about it (YA)
- Another oldie: impeccably researched historical fiction (YA or MG) about the misogynist persecution of midwives, esp re: accusations of witchcraft
- Queer friendships
I am so down for this midwife one.
And the Emily Dickinson one.
Dang, Ellen. Go breaking my heart. #MSWL
In all my #MSWL, I haven't said epic fantasy. I love fantasy, but guys, make feel new. I hang in the space as a reader not just as an agent, so to hook me, you're gonna have to know the literary legacies and the tropes and how to break them.
Adria Goetz @adriamgoetzMermaids! PB, MG, YA, GNs.✨🧜♀️ I'm not looking for an epic fantasy, or a story in which someone discovers they’re a mermaid, or a romance in which a mermaid falls in love with a human. I'd love for it to be something a non-genre reader could get into. #MSWL
I am also adding this to my mermaid #MSWL
Alyza Liu @alyzaliua few very Specific #MSWL items i’m actively looking for:
- YA superstore
- an #ownvoices PB about sacheen littlefeather
- YA set in catholic/boarding/private school—bonus points for murder 💀
i’m also posting on my MSWL profile & here:
Elle Keck @ElleKeckI'm not normally a "foodie" reader but I would read the crap out of an enemies to lovers romance about rival restaurant owners, one who serves CaliMex (THE BEST) and one who serves TexMex. As long as CaliMex wins, obviously #MSWL twitter.com/ElleKeck/statu…
As a Texan, I would read the crap out of this, but I have to say: only TexMex would win. #MSWL
Though I do love CaliMex.
Also, TWEET CUTE is such a comp for this.
Kaitlyn Johnson @kaitylynne13Anyone thought of a Count of Monte Cristo retelling, but from the woman he left behind's perspective? And she's the badass getting into sword fights and proving his innocence? #MSWL pic.twitter.com/gD5UKoXKqA
OOORRRRR a genderbent COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO about a woman who was set up to take the fall for a male and is now coming to get hers? #MSWL
