I almost want to #MSWL a modern version of ANNE OF THE ISLAND, but I'm too afraid it'll never match the version in my head.

Thinking again how much I want a Hatshepsut fantasy. WOMAN WHO WOULD BE KING meets GOBLIN EMPEROR. Please! #mswl (Esp #ownvoices as poss.)

Bridget Smith @bredalot · 30 Jun 2016

A YA or SFF reinterpretation of PERSUASION - not beat-for-beat, please, but that feeling of second chances & love that hasn't died. #mswl

Bridget Smith @bredalot · 30 Jun 2016

On that #shbookclub note, I would looove a science fiction that makes me ship a couple as hard as I did in SHARDS OF HONOR, please. #mswl

Bridget Smith @bredalot · 30 Jun 2016

Also, I have a new space on my list for an extremely smart epic fantasy for adults that does new things with tropes. #mswl

Bridget Smith @bredalot · 30 Jun 2016

An #mswl from vacation: f/f sports YA (soccer, maybe?) that feels like @elmify - sharp, nuanced, warm, & funny.

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

#MSWL The McGonagall book: buzzfeed.com/ariellecaldero… (We could also call this the Querida book, after DWJ's version.)

Replying to @bredalot

Basically: what does it look like when the dryly humorous, brilliant, powerful, old-enough-to-give-no-fucks witch gets her own story? #MSWL

#mswl Surely there's a way to update the feral domesticity of the first Boxcar Children book for a modern MG audience?

Bridget Smith @bredalot · 10 Mar 2016

I have a slight resistance to science fiction, but I'd like to see some that's as personal & human & character-driven as PLANETFALL. #mswl

Bridget Smith @bredalot · 10 Mar 2016

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

#MSWL YA fake-relationship stories, please! They are so contrived but also my kryptonite.
