Natascha Morris @SoCalledYALife

Basically, I am hungry to build my YA list and looking for the books I know vibe in my brand

And if you don't see something that sounds like your book, don't worry! Sometimes I only know I wants something once I have actually looked at it.

So #MSWL for unexpected things I didn't know I even wanted.

But if we are going contemporary, I need to elevate it. Kit Frick is a forever comp, but if your book comps to TRULY DEVIOUS or FEMAL OF THE SPECIES, I would be here for it. #MSWL #YA

I am in the reading mood for fantasy right now. I want writing like Margaret Owen with the snap crackle and pop of Sarah J. Maas's characters #MSWL #YA

I want a fantasy series with a new magic system. Not centered around a firebird, or death, or fairies. #MSWL

I am craving an epic High Fantasy Romance. Think WINNER'S CURSE or ACOTAR. #MSWL

I wan the snap, crackle and pop of the character chemistry that Sarah J. Maas has in the ACOTAR. And I don't mean the sexy times, but the actual character interactions (side characters and all) #MSWL

Also I blame @chatgreenfield for why I can't stop thinking about a teen in cozy mystery. Maybe murder at the quilting club, or underground grandma karaoke goes awry.

Side note, I am a huge fan of the TRULY DEVIOUS novels so you can also see the influence there #MSWL

I want an Anne and Gilbert romance because let's just acknowledge the epic tropes here.

Also that slate smashing scene is still 🤌🤌 #MSWL

And jumping off mermaids: PROFESSIONAL MERMAIDS. Have you all seen the people who make the super realistic mermaid tales? Or do you know there mermaid meet ups? Or that you can take a class to learn to swim like a mermaid (it's a scuba diving class) #MSWL

Mermaids. I know I am picky, but I know the mermaid story for me is out there.

It'll be atmospheric, mermaids won't talk under water, hell it might not even be set in the water. #MSWL
