In speculative fiction, I'm looking more for folklore, magical realism, surrealism, cozy fantasy, light fantasy, and atmospheric fantasy with lush world building and gorgeous prose, than traditional high/ epic fantasy. #MSWL

As a Southern person, working at a Southern publisher, I'd love to find Southern stories—in everything from contemporary to genre fiction! Particularly BIPOC and/or queer southern stories! #MSWL

In contemporary, I'd like to find sweet, slice-of-life stories, found family and platonic love (queer friend groups!), and stories with a strong sense of place. #MSWL

I finally watched the Violet Evergarden movie last night. 😭 It was so beautiful, and now I just need stories with a similar aesthetic. Thanks. #MSWL

Some random/ very specific things:

1. A cheerleading book (Gay BRING IT ON)!
2. Gay BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM!
3. A story with a Type 1 Diabetic protagonist!
4. Stories like WEATHERING WITH YOU where climate/ weather is the antagonist!

EVERGREEN #MSWL, for everything listed above, I want to see more body diversity, more queer stories, more inclusive casts and worlds, and more disability rep!

Speculative fiction and with a lightly dystopian angle like WILDER GIRLS and WE SET THE DARK ON FIRE. Give me something so weird here it's impossible to fit in one category. #MSWL

Folkloric fantasy and fairytales with lush world building and gorgeous prose like WINTERWOOD, SORCERY OF THORNS, and HOUSE OF SALT & SORROWS. #MSWL

Fantasy will always me my 💜. But I'm especially on the lookout for contemporary fantasy, urban fantasy, and paranormal right now. Examples: A BLADE SO BLACK, THE DEVOURING GRAY, and CEMETERY BOYS. #MSWL

Dark fantasy, gothic fantasy, horror-fantasy blends, and stories with subversive religious themes. Think SERPENT & DOVE, WICKED SAINTS, and THE YEAR OF THE WITCHING. #MSWL

Historical novels both fantasy and realistic—especially overlooked or underrepresented stories in history (though I'm pickier when it comes to 20th century history). Examples of what I'm looking for: DREAD NATION and BLOOD COUNTESS! #MSWL

Finally updated my #MSWL for 2020! Who's ready for a thread?

I'm still only acquiring YA at this time, but I acquire all genres, so if your project isn't here please TRY ME ANYWAY! These are just some specific things I'm on the lookout for @PageStreetKids!

Starting 2019 with this #MSWL: I will drop everything to read a fresh, inclusive Urban Fantasy! Give me a city with magic woven into each building and street!

Contemporary stories featuring teens with unique jobs! (Still looking for my Renaissance Fair book!) #MSWL
