I am absolutely delighted every May when I see artists post #mermay doodles and illustrations of mermaids. I am a next level mermaid lover—I've read academic papers on mermaid mythology and studied how it varies from country to country. So keep 'em coming! 🧜‍♀️✨

Also, #MSWL.

Ingrid Goes West is a movie I think about a lotttt and I'd love to see some sort of YA project in this same vein. #MSWL

I don’t know how to make this sound not sarcastic (🤷🏼‍♀️) but I’d love to see some funny Christian picture books in my inbox. #MSWL

I feel like at every high school there is one girl who will draw on you with Sharpie, like little tattoos, for a couple of dollars. I’d love a graphic novel about her. Would also love a GN about an Indian American teenage girl with a henna business. Send me all your tats. #MSWL

The legendary Andrea Davis Pinkney once said, "We need to see more black kids riding dragons" and this is basically my #MSWL summed up.

This will come as no surprise to my Twitter followers, given the inexplicably high volume of raccoon videos I retweet: I want/need a picture book about raccoons. #MSWL

I'd love to read more funny stories that make me cackle with laughter.

(P.S. I am not a dainty giggler. I am a witch-like cackler. My sisters make me laugh the most and they can vouch for this.) #MSWL

Is there already a picture book out there about the Icelandic tradition of Jolabokaflod? If not... #MSWL

I feel it’s important to note I have a flair for the macabre. #MSWL

A lyrical #OwnVoices PB about a house blessing (or cleansing) ceremony/ritual. There are so many beautiful traditions out there from different cultural/religious backgrounds. #MSWL

Adria Goetz @adriamgoetz · 29 Oct 2018

Since it's #NationalCatDay, this is the perfect day to tweet that I NEED a PB about a cat. (Preferably from an author/illustrator.)

P.S. My cat Maple is sitting on my lap as I type this and she approves this #MSWL item.

I've tweeted this before, but wanted to post it again: I'm hungry (pun absolutely intended) for a graphic novel about food/cooking/baking, with recipes included. :) #MSWL
