It's that time of year when I'm really in the mood for cozy mysteries. I'd be really excited to see a contemporary YA or upper MG that has diverse characters, a playful, intriguing hook, and isn't dark or super serious--like Goldie Vance / Scooby Doo / Hallmark level drama. #MSWL
Just saw @rivercitygirls while browsing for new games and now I want a spunky, over-the-top contemporary YA about two friends (or rivals) who need to work together to save their SOs that doesn't take itself too seriously, plus humor and MCs that pack a punch.

I'd really love for some quirky, geeky nonfiction in the vein of "Of Dice and Men" or "The Lady from the Black Lagoon" but about video games, manga (CLAMP anyone?), or that explores pop culture through the lense of an influencial creator or medium or unique perspective. #MSWL
On a whim I decided to watch this movie on Netflix called Ramen Shop and it's an amazing story about culture, family, love, and (of course) food.
Now I'd like a YA or MG story that explores the bonds of family and culture (especially a blended one) through food! #mswl
Is anyone else into the show Let's Eat because I'd really love a #ownvoices #DV, contemporary #YA book with the same kind of style about a MC who just lives for food. Also if it could include some mouth-watering descriptions I would appreciate it. Cool thanks! #mswl
I don't know about the rest of you, but I love CLAMP and I would really love to read a playful, informative non-fiction book that looks at the history of the group and the amazing work that they have done since the early '80s.
Just saying. #MSWL
Brit Perilli @Britny_PerilliLooking for some manga/anime to enjoy over the holiday in the vein of Ouran High School Host Club, Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun, or Love is Hard for Otaku!
Honestly, I'd love to see some YA that has the playfulness & emotional conflicts of these kinds of rom coms with diverse protagonists, too. #mswl
Little late to #MSWL today, but I'd love for some agents to send some illustrated, quirky, pop culture adult nonfiction or some lighthearted, contemporary MG & YA with some strong nerd culture flavor! (I've been itching for some cosplay/comic con/food competition stories.)
Jordan Hamessley @thejordacheMy query inbox is longing for MG and YA narrative non-fiction. Exploring history from a new angle? Finding fun ways to discuss STEM topics? Please send them my way! I want more non-ficton! #MSWL
Always on the hunt for good MG and YA narrative non-fiction! Agents send me your best! #MSWL
Maureen Langloss @MaureenLanglossMy kid is tired of middle grade & YA books with thinly-veiled lessons & teachable moments. They feel condescending to her. She wants a good story with interesting, complex characters. She wants authors to give kids more credit; they can handle more nuance & subtlety.
100% adding this to my #MSWL. Please give me more stories like these.
As I slowly begin to acquire my own books (gasp, like a real editor!) I wanted to do my first #mswl! I'm looking for quirky, fun pop culture focused non fiction. Give me a new take on Fangirl's Guide to the Galaxy, Spectacular Sisterhood of Superwomen, Alien Next Door, etc.!
