I'm preparing to reopen to queries next week and wanted to share my current #mswl:

Contemporary Fantasy in the vein of the films About Time and Your Name
Diverse MG like Aru Shah and the End of Time and Amina’s Voice
Foodie Magic like Chocolat and Garden Spells
LGBTQ Retellings

I'm still dying for a Count of Monte Cristo retelling. Genderbend it. LGBTQ it. Make it contemporary. Or fantasy. I'm down for it! #mswl

It's #MSWL day! A lot of my previous mswls still stand, but I'm particularly interested in seeing more contemporary fantasy. I want to see magic in everyday life!

BUT I want to see some modern magic realism, and some contemporary fantasy (think portal magic, magical bakeries/flower shops, lighthearted time travel in the vein of the movie About Time). Again, more modern/contemporary and less urban fantasy. #mswl

I have the sudden strong urge to read a historical fantasy or alternate history YA starring a young female scientist like Marie Curie. #mswl

More middle grade. Fantasy, contemporary, sci-fi, etc... I want to see them all! #mswl

Inclusive stories, feminist stories, powerful stories about fighting against bigotry & injustice. #MSWL ALWAYS! #SFF #YA #MG #PB #ROM

Would love a fantasy where the heroine is cursed into an animal, not a shifter story but like Howl's Moving Castle meets Lady Hawke #mswl
