I’m still looking for a YA macabre fairy tale retelling. A story that combines luxurious fantasy and horror. #MSWL

Super fun Contemporary YA. You know all your favourite swoon-worthy fanfic stories? I want YA fiction that reads like that. #MSWL

I really, really want illustrated nonfiction. Ex: WHAT WE SEE IN THE STARS, LITERARY WITCHES. Or maybe something prescriptive and workbook-ish like THE CURATED CLOSET. #MSWL

I love #MSWL day! I’m going to throw some new wish list items out into the universe today (and probably repeat some older ones I’m still hoping to find), but you can always find even more + extra submissions information on my website. mariavicente.com/representation/

I made the mistake of starting The Vampire Diaries on Netflix (it's my first time watching the series) and now all I can think about is vampire lore. I am ready for a vampire resurgence.

To be more specific when it comes to books, my Young Adult vampire-themed #MSWL would look something like this: new twists on classic tropes; more interested in a badass character than "vamp with a soul"; the Pink Ladies or T-Birds... but vampires!

Reminder that not all work by POC must be weighty, dramatic books. White authors got to write thousands of fluffy books and cash the checks. We shouldn't be appreciated only when it gets dark and horrible.

I so badly want these “fluffy” YA books by POC and LGBTQ+ writers. As much as I love angst and think “issue books” are super important, I also love ridiculously fun stories that make readers feel good about life (including their identities). #MSWL

I'd also love a realistic Middle Grade with a protagonist who has an immigrant parent (or parents). Growing up, I would have really appreciated reading this element in a book. #MSWL
