Sabrina 민용 Pyun @sabrinampyunI’d love to have a speculative novel about the beauty and/or fashion industry #mswl
Saaaaaaame. Send me all of your fashion-related books please.
Worth noting that I have a folder on my desktop called "Fave red carpet looks" for absolutely no reason other than it makes me happy. 👠✨#MSWL
Since there are some new faces 'round these parts, I thought I'd share some fresh links:

I think graphic novels are a fantastic visual way to showcase bodies of all sizes, so I’d love to rep a GN in the same vein as Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Grrrls.
Side note: I could talk about this show for 8 million years. If only this show existed when I was younger 🥲 #MSWL
I'm also excited to share that I've opened back up to queries for picture books, middle grade, adult fiction, and graphic novels. #MSWL below:

bobahumbug @bobaheadsharkthinking of a romcom where dev patel's a snobby city journalist, and lana condor's a romance novellist who also writes thrillers under a different pen name. he puts the romance novel on his "worst of" list and the thriller under "best", not knowing they're by the same person– pic.twitter.com/Yq99CI5fTI
This is the type of high concept rom com I'm dying for. #MSWL
ABC News @ABCDozens of customers who stopped for a drink at Britain’s highest altitude pub got a longer stay than they bargained for, after the building was cut off by a blizzard. abcn.ws/3o0vt7A pic.twitter.com/2a4YBh5yYt
Don’t forget me for fun gift books that you'd impulse-buy (like THE COMPENDIUM OF MAGICAL BEASTS), concept-driven photography books (like THE ART OF CLEAN UP, or a devotional with a good hook (like KNIT, PRAY, SHARE)! #MSWL
I’m looking for pageturning thrillers, book club fiction that is engaging and accessible, but still layered and thought-provoking. (You *might* call that “the intersection of commercial and literary.”) Think Taylor Jenkins Reid. I’d also LOVE hooky rom coms. #MSWL

Aside from graphic novels, I am still in pursuit of a magical-yet-quiet mermaid novel, so my inbox is a safe cove to any mermaids that would like to swim in. ✨🧜🏼♀️
I really love finding a good magical MG novel, but I’m open to a wide range here. Voicey contemporaries, mystery, magical realism/contemporary fantasy, graphic novels, historical fiction, verse, epistolary. When in doubt, send it my way! #MSWL
Adria Goetz @adriamgoetzSince I’m now back open to queries, I’d love to share a bit more about what types of projects I’m currently looking for. Buckle up for a #MSWL thread. 💜
In the PB space, I have 3 top priorities:
1. Stories by BIPOC creators in general, particularly family narratives. I love falling in love with a new fictional family!
2. Humor! I need a good laugh. Kids do, too.
3. MAGIC! Send me magical stories!!! ✨
ICYMI: I am opened back up to queries! I’m particularly looking for picture books, middle grade, graphic novels (any age), and adult fiction. Flood my inbox, friends. 💜#MSWL
I would loooove to work on something similar to THE HAUNTED LAKE, which is a really unique, spooky, folktale-feeling picture book. (Except I'd prefer something with a shorter length.) Send those spooky stories my way! #MSWL
KidLit GN @KidLitGNWednesday is coming up quickly! Agents and editors, please feel free to post your GN wish list and your submission guidelines. Or your plans to be involved. Let's spread the word! Thanks! #KidLitGN pic.twitter.com/IFvYnMNUq8
So excited for this tomorrow! When it comes to graphic novels, I’m open to a wide range, but here are a few #MSWL items: contemporary with a strong voice/distinctive perspective, historical fiction, accessible fantasy, mystery/anything spooky, romance. ♥️ #KidLitGN
I just finished REAL MEN KNIT by @KwanaWrites and loooved it. You *NEED* this rom com set in a knitting shop in your life. 🧶
This tweet shall henceforth be an #AdriaBookRecs, and a #MSWL request. 💜
P.S. s/o to @sa_mcveigh! I first heard about this book from one of her tweets.
