Norma @normajeanesaysMy white whale (I have been asking for years!) is an atmospheric traditional contemporary mystery in the vein of Louise Penny and Suzanne Chazin. Bonus points if the author and characters are both marginalized! #MSWL
Ahoy! I've been seeking this whale of an #MSWL too! 🐋📚😊
racquel marie 🌹 @blondewithab00k✨ what was/will be your first read of 2022? ✨
First read of 2022 (not counting requests with offers or client manuscripts 😊): Death of a Red Heroine by Qiu Xiaolong. So glad to finally begin the Chief Inspector Chen series!
Hint: looking for adult mysteries like these when I reopen to queries 1/3/22. #MSWL
#MSWL - I need a gripping, chilling YA mystery. A laugh out loud MG. And some striking voices!
And I’d LOVE a great upmarket adult mystery or romantic suspense!
Karen Chaplin @CapChapReads#mswl I am looking for middle-grade mystery. Mysteries were one of my fav things to read and watch as a kid. Take me back to The Goonies and Encyclopedia Brown with mystery, adventure, friendship, and an element finding yourself.
Me too!!! #mswl
But I’d really love it with a voice we’ve not seen before.
Read the late great Barbara Neely’s BLANCHE ON THE LAM yesterday. So sad we only have 4 of these. I’m going to have to dole them out to myself as treats...
I’d love a contemporary #ownvoices mystery that tells it like it is, just as Ms. Neely did. #MSWL
Leslie Zampetti @leslie_zampetti#MSWL I’d love to see some Latinx/Jewish contemporary YA... Or a retelling of Romeo & Juliet with the protagonists both devout but different religions... Or a great MG mystery that more Mo LeBeau and less Nancy Drew & ClueCrew.
Oops! #MSWL Day is tomorrow!
Well, at least I’m on brand. I’m always the early bird! 😊🐥📚
