I’d love to find some laugh out loud contemporary and/or some spooky middle grade #graphicnovels #mswl

Also eager to find some fun early reader graphic novels!

On the contemporary fiction, if it feels like Jason Reynolds could have wrote it, I'd love to see it. Realistic stories that don't shy away from hard topics. With characters we all can love.#MSWL

I'm also looking for #YA! At this point, I'm leaning more towards Contemporary YA (think funny like The Field Guide to the American Teenager, or books dealing with important topics like On the Come Up or Heroine). #MSWL

I’m on the hunt for a great contemporary #YA. I’m open to anything that feels fresh— and would love something like Samira Ahmed or Ben Phillips’s The Field Guide to the North American Teenager. #MSWL

I’m also on the hunt for #YA. Less SFF more contemp & thrillers. Open to anything. Male POV would be great (not necessary). Karen McManus, Jason Reynold, Patrick Ness, Neal Shusterman #MSWL
