Summer #MSWL refresh:
-still looking for great contemporary (or historical) YA thrillers & mysteries!
-would love to find a YA historical set in Asia, Africa, or South America
-smart, upmarket contemporary rom-coms by BIPOC authors
*YA contemp. in the vein of I'LL GIVE YOU THE SUN or EMERGENCY CONTACT
*sister stories, a boarding school novel, anything with folklore/mythology/retellings
Time for a 2020 #MSWL refresh!
Would love to see:
*more, generally by Korean authors in both YA & adult
*strong literary/upmarket fiction from a diverse POV (think Celeste Ng, Jean Kwok, Kamila Shamsie, etc.)
*YA thriller in the vein of SADIE

Yo, #MSWL! This is what I'm talking about when I say I want historical fiction that focuses on "stories of those that history has largely chosen to not tell."
Felicity Disco @FelicityDiscoFew things in a book description make me click as quickly as "murder at an elite New England college/boarding school." I have accepted this about myself.
Ahem. An intersection of all my interests. #MSWL
Also, please, as ever: any "big think" nonfiction. I'm fascinated by investigative journalism (I loved DREAMLAND by Sam Quinones); tech, pop science, pop psychology, and anything with a feminist lens (currently reading GOOD AND MAD by Rebecca Traister & loving it). #MSWL
It's January, which means it's cold & gray & I hate leaving the house, so send me your work to keep me company! #MSWL: would love a more literary thriller a la THE TWELVE LIVES OF SAMUEL HAWLEY or BARBED WIRE HEART; writing from marginalized writers a la THE LEAVERS or
My updated #MSWL is up! Find it here: manuscriptwishlist.com/mswl-post/amy-… Would love more upmarket/literary fiction from women of color and, since we're approaching Halloween, things with a bit of spook to them.
Amy Elizabeth @amylizbishopI would just like this book right now, please #mswl twitter.com/GraceKendallLi…
Actually, I would really just like any books featuring women of any age taking matters into their own hands and hunting down shitty men, so bring 'em on. #mswl
Grace Kendall @GraceKendallLitFor any of you who have a Teen-Girl-Becomes-Serial-Killer-Who-Targets-Misogynists-with-Overwhelming-Success manuscript sitting on your hard drive, have your agent submit it to me in the morning, please and thank you. #mswl
I would just like this book right now, please #mswl
So I finished THE POPPY WAR by @kuangrf over the weekend and...holy crap. It's INCREDIBLE. I am #MSWL'ing the heck out of this book and...ready to go add some more stunning adult fantasy like this to my TBR. Suggestions welcome!!
