Jen “eeeeek” Edwards @Jene_e_edwardsbeen thinking about how the worst heartbreak i’ve ever suffered was from a friendship breakup, and how that is so rarely explored in YA. i didn’t know how to cope because i didn’t know anyone who had gone through something that intense. we need to fix this.
I can't tell you how much I say I want to acquire books about friendships, especially how to deal with either growing up and apart or having an incident that breaks the friendship apart. #MSWL
Thao Le @ThaoLe8SAMMME~ But I'd love to see multicultural witches. Brujas, hoodoos, asian witches running apothecaries! #mswl twitter.com/TiffanyDiahann…
I'm a big proponent of diversity (begins to list family heritage) so yes to all of this. #mswl
Molli Moran @MissMolliWritesYou know what’s I wish we had more YA books about? Toxic friendship breakups. How to grieve healthily and move on. Teens and young adults. need to know; otherwise, they aren’t prepared.
Give me this! #MSWL
Quressa Robinson (she/her/queen) @qnrisawesomeFor the love of my dark, evil, magical heart, please send me witch books--bitchy witches, selfish witches, selfless witches, kind witches, amoral witches, angry witches. ALL THE WITCHES!!! #MSWL
Clare Farmer @ClareMFarmerIn Finnish mythology it's believed that the Aurora Borealis is caused by a firefox who ran so quickly across the snow that it's tail caused sparks to fly into the night sky creating the Aurora. The Finnish word “revontulet” literally translates as "fox fire." #FolkloreThursday pic.twitter.com/IO3WVy6pwR
Basis for a YA fantasy? #MSWL
Lauren [closed to queries in August] @laurenspiellerThis is the most obvious #MSWL ever, but...
I want books like To All The Boys I've Loved Before, in YA and Adult. This means:
--family B plots
Let's do this!
Like, duh. #MSWL
Silvia Moreno-Garcia @silviamgReminder that not all work by POC must be weighty, dramatic books. White authors got to write thousands of fluffy books and cash the checks. We shouldn't be appreciated only when it gets dark and horrible.
I SAY THIS TO EVERY PERSON WHO ASKS ME WHAT I'M LOOKING TO ACQUIRE.
SEND ME AN THE LIGHT AND FLUFFY POC BOOKS, ESPECIALLY FRIENDSHIP BOOKS, SIBLING BOOKS, AND BOOKS WHERE ALL THE HIJINKS HAPPEN. #MSWL twitter.com/silviamg/statu…
Tiffany Shelton @TiffanyDiahannJust finished BEHIND HER EYES by @SarahPinborough. THIS IS WHY I LOVE PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLERS. I guessed half of the twist but was still surprised at the other half. @Flatironbooks
I'm always saying how I want the next TELL ME YOUR DREAMS by Sidney Sheldon and this definitely fit that bill. Will be adding this as a comp to my #MSWL.
So agents, if you have a psychological thriller like either of these two books, send it my way.
