The New York Times @nytimesBreaking News: San Francisco became the first major U.S. city to ban the use of facial recognition technology by police and other municipal agencies nyti.ms/2VA92cJ
If you're thinking about setting your dystopian in San Francisco, think again.
But maybe a great locale for a crime or psychological suspense novel with an antihero protagonist? #MSWL
Privacy fears allayed... for now.

The New Yorker @NewYorker“We really wanted to make the teen film to end all teen films,” Winona Ryder said, of “Heathers.” Instead of putting an end to the genre, though, “Heathers” gave it a new life: nyer.cm/wCvC0hX pic.twitter.com/W4bg0Alszy
I would love to find Heathers in my inbox. I have a thing for bad boyfriends. #MSWL
(In fact, I had a dream last night I was back together with the baddest of my bad boyfriends, and even though I knew better, I still couldn't resist him.)
I love the idea that magic could be lurking in our world, if only we knew where to look. Have such a story (PB, MG, YA, adult speculative/horror)? Please send it my way! #MSWL
JenniferMarchSoloway @marchsolowayAnyone else a big fan of ‘The Haunting of Hill House,’ like me? According to @NYTimes, here's What to Read if You’re Obsessed nyti.ms/2Aq6QbL
🍂🎃Willow Reaves🎃🍂 @Willow_Reeves_@marchsoloway prefrence of style or age group? PB? Chapter? MG?
also, realism or anything goes? (monsters, witches etc)
Surprise me. I just want to see characters who take responsibility at the end of the story, rather than lie, deny, or blame others. #mswl
#MSWL Still looking for a creepy MG ghost story. One of my favorite books as a kid was THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS*, by John Bellairs. Would love to find a modern day haunted house MG.
(*The illustration of the headlights still keeps me up at night. Eep!)
#MSWL Looking for a YA version of The Hand That Feeds You, by A.J. Rich.
*I have a thing for bad boyfriends, bad girlfriends, and badly behaving friends (in stories, that is, not real life).

The New Yorker @NewYorkerThe practical magic of Joan Aiken, the greatest children’s writer you’ve likely never read: nyer.cm/uffQewY pic.twitter.com/CuA7a9E260
One of my favorite books as a child was NIGHT FALL, by Joan Aiken. I read it over and again.
I love thrilling stories of suspense about secret pasts and repressed memories. #MSWL
Vicki Lame @thedaysbetween#MSWL diverse romantic comedy (adult and YA) forever and ever more. Fill the post Crazy Rich Asians / To All the Boys I've Loved Before weekend hole in my heart.
Melissa Albert @mimi_albertTHE HAZEL WOOD is six months (and two days) old, and I'm celebrating with a giveaway!! RT by 8/3, 5pm EST, for a chance to win a copy of the ridiculously cool French edition. ☕️🥞✨ pic.twitter.com/9VI0MyBArW
LOVE the French cover of THE HAZEL WOOD, by Melissa Albert, one of my favorite 2018 #YA reads!
P.S. I would love to find a fantasy grounded in our reality like THE HAZEL WOOD. it is so much fun to think magic might exist, if only we look in the right place.
