I am craving some gorgeously weird YA fantasy as well! Particularly something contemporary-ish. #mswl

I'm also really into YA stories that take a romance structure/trope and use it to construct a fantastic friendship story (a la FOOLISH HEARTS, an enemies-to-BFFs contemp). #mswl

In MG & YA, I'm focusing on high-concept contemporary that's sweet, funny, and layered, the kind of book that deals with a couple different kinds of relationship including the MC's feelings about themselves. #MSWL

First: still looking for the f/f contemp YA of my dreams; funny, warm, layered, & more "coming of age" than "romance." #mswl

The thing I want most right now is f/f contemporary YA that's funny, poignant, warm, & layered, a la Emma Mills. Esp. #ownvoices. #MSWL

#MSWL I'd like to see a contemporary-style YA in a fantasy world. Small stakes that feel huge, a focus on everyday life.

I've said this before, but I'd love a contemporary YA update of Louisa May Alcott's AN OLD-FASHIONED GIRL, full of humor & heart.. #mswl
