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

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

And now I need a magic realism story about a family that runs a funeral home or garden that grows flowers that can predict death. #mswl

Fantasy (MG, YA, or Adult) that features food-related magic. #foodiemagic #mswl

More contemporary MG. It can have a hint of magical realism too. Stories about family, friendship, stories that make me laugh and cry. #mswl

2016 Wishlist: I thought I would list a couple of things I really want to see more of this year... #mswl tmblr.co/Z50dJo1-WYXkn
