I'm pickier with YA lately since it already makes up a large part of my list, but I'm still looking for magical realism, contemporary witches/magic, gothic stories, the influence of modern tech in romcoms, and fantasy or reimaginings that are different and fresh. #MSWL
Thao Le @ThaoLe8Since I'm reopening to submissions today, I thought I'd share what's currently on my #MSWL, though many of the things I've tweeted about in the past are still relevant. I'm most hungry for:
ANY AND ALL Middle Grade, be it fantasy or contemporary, but it has to have lots of heart. Some recent MG I've enjoyed are Front Desk by Kelly Yang, Small Spaces by Katherine Arden, and all the Rick Riordan Presents books have been stellar #MSWL
Wenqing Yan @Yuumei_ArtOld fanart of #SpiritedAway :D Been so busy I haven't had much time to draw new things yet but soooon!
What's you favorite #Miyazaki movie? Mine has always been Princess Mononoke, the intricate story about protecting our environment is truly timeless. pic.twitter.com/xYrDsw3MEW
#MSWL a Princess Mononoke style fantasy about environmentalism and nature. MG, YA, or even Adult.

My current #MSWL is a contemporary fantasy in the vein of Kiki's Delivery Service (MG or YA).
Rae (is on her final edit right now) Williams @RachaelEWritesDo you think there can be a resurrection of cultural-based Contemporary Fantasies? So many Contemp Fantasy's I've seen are based on English/Norse mythos. There are so many different cultures out there! #asklitaoc
OMG YES. I want this #mswl
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
Thao Le (currently closed to queries) @ThaoLe8I'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
I basically like revenge plots a whole lot. Especially when it's a long con type thing and the right people get their justice! #mswl
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
