Just putting it out to the Twitterverse that I still want my horse book! Very much so. Kid lit or adult nonfiction, I will take it all!

#MSWL (last one, I promise): Outdoorsy YA! Hiking stories, survival sagas, ocean adventures (Free Willy retelling?). Sky's the limit!

#MSWL A novel that combines horses (or another animal) with overcoming trauma, reminiscent of Heartland or The Horse Whisperer.

#MSWL Always looking for characters with disabilities or invisible illnesses. Speculative or not!

#MSWL day! A YA Odyssey retelling. A tragic yet beautiful love story a la The Girl in the Fireplace. Anything w/ the atmosphere of Poldark.

Okay, finishing this week with an unusually-formatted #MSWL: give me a book, YA or adult, that feels like this song. youtube.com/watch?v=8VBdu1…

#MSWL YA heroines who are not so tiny that clothes fall off their bodies. I see this all the time nowadays. Show me body diversity instead!

I want more YA protagonists with disabilities. But not a story *about* their disabilities. Their disabilities are just part of them. #MSWL
